Week 32 - Week 3 of Transfer 5

February 3, 2014

ok well hello everybody so highlight of the week is Sunday i confirmed someone into the church in Spanish it was mas o menos.
but Monday, Monday we only had one lesson with Norma Perez and we just talked about Alma 37:37 and how  we must report to the lord what we did that day and then give him thanks in the morning. it was a pretty good lesson she was very open and said we could teach her more later.
Tuesday. we had 2 lessons one with the Diaz family and the other with Eusebio, the Diaz family we taught them about the Plan of Salvation it was a pretty good lesson its hard to teach kids so that they understand but i feel like we did a great job with that. and Eusebio we just talked to him about the book of Mormon and asked him to read and pray about and he didn't really give us a yes or a no but we taught him later this week and he said yes.:)
so Wednesday we were walking down the street and we found an Adriana and she is golden will get baptized here soon, we gave her a Book of Mormon and she gave us some water and a pop, and said she will read the book before we could ask her to do it. we then went to visit another person who wasn't home but there son was interested in learning more about the church and also took a Book of Mormon (we have been giving those out like candy) ha we told us to come back next Wednesday so hopefully he is there. and we also taught Horacio and we just talked about 2 Ne 25:26 he is slowly moving forward we invited him to the baptism that night but he was sick and couldn't go so he told us to come back Saturday. oh and we had 4 investigator at Jamie Sanchez's baptism (Elder Moreno and Elder Simpson are teaching him)

Thursday we had an exchange with Elder Rasband and Elder Mckinley so i was with Elder Rasband in Ventura and we taught a lot of lessons well only 4 but a lot of Spanish for me and little English for him but we talked to the Vera family (they went to the baptism) about the baptism and what they taught and Kimberly the youngest asked why we baptize in the name of the father, the son, and the holy ghost. she is Lutheran and believe they are all one person so we talked about the godhead and invited them to be baptized and they said they would talk to there mom about it (she was working). we also taught the Diaz family about the Gospel of Jesus Christ using the pepper and soap experiment and they loved it! it was great they are going to teach us the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Tuesday (tomorrow). we taught an Esperanza BuenaVentura about the Book of Mormon and she said she would read it after we gave her one we are going to follow up on Thursday, it was a funny lesson cause twice during the lesson some kids asked us for cards in Spanish so i would tell Elder Rasband to give them cards. we also taught David Hernandez finally after 2 transfers of searching for him we found him and we talked about the Restoration but he wanted to talk about parenting so we talked about Lehi dream of the tree and what his kids did or didn't do, it was a powerful lesson he told us to come back again this week.
Friday. we taught Eusebio again about the book of Mormon and got him to say he would read and pray about it, but his girlfriend is moving in tomorrow so its going to take some pushing to get him baptized but we just chippin away, chippin away. yep we also had correlation and it was good we found out were an less active lives so we are going over there today, the work is picking up a lot of speed its great.
Saturday we had an exchanges with the Zone Leaders Elder Kleinman and I worked in the Spanish Area and Elder Lee and Elder Crandel worked in the English Area but we had a great day we taught Magaly the Plan of Salvation and she really understands it we went in and made sure she understood everything before we continued. it was great she still doesn't want to get baptized tell she receives her answer though. we also talked the the Vera Family again and this time the mom was there but she didn't want to sit in on the lesson so she sent her kids outside but we talked about Mosiah 18:8-10 and invited them to think more about Baptism and what it would mean to them.
Sunday, well i confirmed Jamie and it was terrifying i was so nervous but once it was done i felt like it was the easiest thing in the world. but we taught the Diaz family again... about Ether 12:27 and making weak things become strong if we go though the lord and ask for help it was great! we also stopped by the Vera family agian... and taught about prayer and how Enos hungered for prayer and Ribay (one of the priest of the branch) invited them to Young Men's and Young Women's. it was great!
well hope you had a great week tell next week
