This last week was a really long week! Holy cow. It seems like it was full of small events, but not a ton happened. First off, we didn't get to teach any of our investigators.... AHHH!!!! It's frustrating, but what do you do? We picked up a new investigator, though. David is in his 40's, a recovering alcoholic, and is living on the streets right now. Usually we don't teach homeless people, but he's a solid guy and is actually very smart. We are teaching him tonight.
We didn't teach him, but Franky texted us this morning and asked when we could do the next lesson. YESSS!!!! He's so cool. We are excited. Alex and Joanita have been really bad at contacting us... Hopefully it is temporary.
On Wednesday I needed to talk to a doctor and the closest mission doctor was in Temecula... We also had exchanges on Wednesday, so Elder Haskell and I got to go on a road trip to Temec! It was a blast! Then we finished the exchange.
Thursday we had a Zone Review. Basically, President Kendrick came to every zone and initiated a "Jubilee" where the entire mission is their best selves, obedient, and prays for miracles. We have already seen success from it. It's been great!
Saturday we had 2 service projects that we didn't plan ahead of time.... We painted benches for an Eagle Scout project and we busted tables at an old folks party. That was alright.
On Sunday we had a part member family just randomly show up and a less active who hasn't been for over a year show up. It really was a miracle. David came to church too! We have family home evening tonight at a ward missionaries house and our lesson with David. It should be great.
This last week I learned a lot about the atonement. I learned that in order to feel the spirit and be forgiven, we must forgive. We need to forgive EVERYONE. As soon as we do we can better feel the love of our Heavenly Father in our lives. It's just good to do.
Sorry more fun things didn't happen... Love you all! Have a good week!
