California is still pretty great. Let's see, what happened last week? We visited lots of less active members and members. Since we don't have a whole lot of investigators we go around and just try to talk to people in the ward and visit the less actives. It's pretty good. Most people can only see us in the evening though so for the early afternoon and stuff, there's still just a lot of wandering around, knocking on doors and stuff. It's a good time!!
There were a couple cool things that happened this week.
1: We were visiting one of the less actives in the ward, who had told us not to come over. We went anyway and she was actually super happy to see us. We ended up talking for a long time and she kept telling us how glad she was that we came over even though she told us not to. That's only half the story though. The second half is that as we were starting to drive away, a man walked up to our car and wanted to talk to us. We rolled down the window and he said "Hello, my name is Juan, and I am a Witness of Jehovah. But I would like to read the Book of Mormon just to see what it is all about. Do you have one that I could have?" And we were like, Heck Yeah! So we gave him one and offered to give him our number so he could call us if he had questions but he said no and walked off. It was cool though. I hope he likes it.
2: There is a house about a quarter mile down the road from the Masseys. It's a pretty nice house. But the really nice bit is what's inside the garage. A LAMBORGHINI!!!! Soooooooo sweet!!! They were out cleaning it on Saturday and let us take some pictures. I attached a couple :) It's so sweet. The guy also has a way sooped up Mustang and a super nice Mercedes.
Past that, nothing much else happened this week. Chris couldn't meet yesterday again so I can't report on that. :( Next week though hopefully!!!
The members of our ward are slowly starting to get used to the whole missionary work idea. A lot more people are starting to get enthusiastic about it. Especially the youth. At church, there are always some youth that come up and tell us the missionary experiences they've had at school and stuff. A lot of the kids are inviting people to church and activities and stuff. I think the parents are seeing the kids doing it and are starting to realize that it's not that hard. Haha. It's sweet.
Sounds like things are crazy at home!!! I'm thinking maybe you should send me some of that Cider??? Yeah that's a good idea. And those crepes sounded amazing!!!! One of the members fed us crepes one night. MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm. Totally delicious. Pretty much I'm just super jealous of missing out on all the festivities!! They sounded awesome!! I'm glad Sadie had a good time. Oh and I'm glad you liked the Bear Sade :)
One of the cool things happening this week is Elder Walker of the Seventy is coming to talk to all the missionaries. He's the guy in charge of all the temples pretty much. He's been at every single dedication over the past couple years. So we are super excited to hear from him. It's pretty much an all day things. We start at 9:30 and go until 4. It's gonna be sweet! Past that, I don't know what's in store for this next week. Hopefully some sweet stuff.
I hope everything is going well!! I love you all. Missionary work is the best! California is awesome!!
Love, Elder Wise
