Well its official i am half way there.... :S
But i had the best week of my mission, until next week!
Monday, we had a lesson with Bernard and we read from the book of Mormon with him and answered some questions it was a great lesson we all felt the spirit that is for sure i can't wait for his baptism he is so ready it is crazy!
Tuesday, we went to the Zavala family and talked to Marco and compared soccer to the studying, how you get batter at it the more you do it. We also met with Bernard and his mother when he went to get ready we talked about prayer and our humanitarian work and she thought that is really cool that our church does so much, and then Bernard came back out and we reviewed the plan of salvation. it was a great lesson!
Wednesday, we had a blitz with the zone leaders in Santa Paula to help the Hermanas find some new people to teach, it was very good we found a couple good people that seem very promising! After we meet Bernard at the church with Sister P (ward family history person) and we taught him/she taught him how to do family history he loved it a lot and is working on his pedigree chart and is going to bring it on Wednesday again, if he wants to come this week. But that was a awesome miracle it was pretty cool to see him searching for his family.
Thursday, after district meeting we went to Piru to see Susie she wasn't home but Katie came out and talked to us and we talked about what she believes in God (she is catholic) it was a great lesson we taught her about the nature of God. And we saw Bernard and we watched part of the special witness of thirst movie it was pretty good we also watched some Mormon messages.
Friday, we meet with the Ramirez family and Elizabeth's daughter Nicole and we taught her the restoration it went pretty good, she liked it and said "wicked but in a good way" she then said she would come to church if Elizabeth made custard. we then stopped by Bernard's and we read in the book of Mormon a little with him, it was pretty good he asked us what the house of Israel is so we talked about that a tiny bit.
Saturday we meet with Fred and he asked us if our church believes in the promise God gave to Abraham so we talk about the Abrahamic covenant and talked about that with him. And we meet with Bernard and we went for a walk with him and we talked about obedience and obeying the laws of the land. He thought that was cool how the more obedient we are, the more blessings we receive.
Sunday. We had 7 investigators come to church (Nicole,Bernard, Eva and her 2 girls, Jerry, and Luis) it has awesome, we had a lesson with Bernard and we planned his baptism out to the T. it was a great lesson with him.
That was my week in a nutshell!
Hope your have a great week! the picture are from our walk with Bernard (he lent us some cool shades)
