Hello! I hope your week has been wonderful!
Last Monday we saw some miracles when we found 3 new investigators in the evening before he headed over to Whittier for exchanges! I went on exchanges with Sister Allen!! Yay! If you don't remember she was my STL in Huntington Beach North, in the Beach ward, and we were reunited!!!! Yay! It was soo good. We had a very special experience sharing the restoration with a part-member family I had eaten dinner with on a previous exchange. They remembered me! It was really great, probably one of the most powerful lessons I have taught on my mission. Sister Allen and I always make a good team on exchanges haha, it was our 3rd exchange together.
Wednesday we had a great lesson with Mattie and we set a baptismal date! yay! September 30th, she is going to talk to her parents about it so, keep her in your prayers! Later we also met with Dice and a couple of less-active members, it was a really hot day!! It got to like 106 I think... crazy!
Thursday we did some planning and saw a less-active recent convert that no one has had contact with in a while, it was a miracle to get to meet him! We are going to start reading the Book of Mormon with him to help re-strengthen his testimony.
Friday we had a couple of really good lessons with Salai, Bill and Mark, and Julie. Julie is really progressing well right now, opening up to searching for answers!
Saturday we found 2 new investigators, one of them is named Emmanuel, he is from Nigeria and he is very cool. He offered a very passionate prayer at the end of our lesson and though it was pretty dramatic, I felt a very special spirit as he repeatedly called out to God for blessings and support, it was a nice experience. We also met with Calvin and Edward.
Sunday was great! Edward had an interview with the Bishop, hopefully that will be helpful to him! He was the only one who came to church but it was great to see him there. After church we had a great restoration lesson with a family we found last week, we are excited to see where they go! We also had a great experience following the spirit in the morning. We had extra time before Church because no ward council, so we went by a former investigator, no answer. We got a little lost in the neighborhood and felt prompted to knock on a door and we found a new investigator! Her name is Alicia and she is sweet. We will see her next week.
Sorry I didn't have a lot of time to email today, I had to make a program for Alyssa's baptism this week!
Love you lots!
