Easter Week

This week was really good. We had a really good lesson with a less-active/part member family. We decided to teach the kids just as much as the investigator since they don't really know two things about the gospel either. It went really well.  The kids were asking questions and we were talking to them about what they remember from church.  I think it really helped out Doug, the investigator who is also their brother-in-law. We also got to pick up a new investigator too! She's really solid but really busy. With this week being spring break, she said she's going to be pretty tied up but she agreed to a return visit another week. We're still going to do our best to contact her at least once a week though. We found out some less than good news from our investigator Tai. She said it's going to take at least 2 months for her divorce to all go through so her and Tony won't be able to be baptized for a while. It's too bad but they're still super solid and they are always talking about how much they love church and how they know it's true. It's awesome. Tai even got up and bore her testimony at a little ward fireside we were having. It was way good.

This week we were lucky and the High Councilman for our ward was speaking so it was in English! Yeah English! It was fun. It happens every once in a blue moon. We also got to go to the temple (pictures included). The LA temple is super cool! It's very large also. it's got at least 3 rooms. Maybe 4. Or more than that. 

We're excited for this week. We got a referral from some English today and we have an appointment set so it should be great. We just need to call some members and get them with us and we'll be all seki a!

I'm loving my time here. Going on a mission is the best decision I've made ever. I'm loving it and I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. It's been work but it's also been really fun. That's how we should feel when we're living the gospel. Especially when engaged in as such a great work as this is. I'm sure all you other missionaries could attest to that.

Well, I hope you all have a good week. I love each of you. If any of you forgot that, then write it down somewhere. Or say it really loud. I've heard that helps you remember things. If it works let me know I've never actually tried it.

Okay, everyone, all together now,

Keep it real
Good job.
