On Monday we played some ball, as usual. We said goodbye to some members who really helped us out in the YSA ward and also met with the Merriweather sisters one last time.
Tuesday was transfer day! We got all of our stuff packed up, and I took all my stuff to my new apartment, since I'll be so close, I could do that. We also had one last lesson together. We brought Brock Jensen with us, and met with Eugenia, who has a baptismal date for the end of this month. It was a really good lesson, she basically taught us.

We went straight to transfers right after, and I got my new companion, Elder Hale.
Wednesday we didn't meet with anyone in particular. We have been doing a lot of knocking to get this area on fires! We didn't have a dinner with anyone either, but as stopped by two members home, they both fed us. Even when we don't have a dinner, we get 2! I love this ward!
Thursday we had district meeting, and a lot of knocking again. Anything to find people to teach!
Friday we had mission leadership council again, so we spent a lot of time there, but afterwards, we got back to knocking doors. We had dinner with a family at a place called Yamato, look it up. Sure was good! We had a lesson with a guy named Moses. He's from the Philippines, and we took a member with us, who is also from the Philippines. He also fed us...not good. We were so full. But we had a good spiritual lesson with them on the Restoration, and picked up two of them as investigators.
Saturday was more knocking. We would visit a potential investigator, or former investigator, and then knock around them for an hour or so, and then on to the next one. We met with a potential who is really interested in learning now. We also picked up another lady through knocking, named Kam. She was so excited about learning about the Gospel.
On Sunday, I walked into church to a warm welcome. It was great! The ward is huge! It is bigger than my home ward in UTAH...how insane! It's so good though! We visited some part member families and were able to pick up the husband and son of a member, to teach!
It's so cool to see that we put in all the effort to find these people, showing the Lord our faith, in 110 degree weather, and he provides. Sometimes it is the way we expected, but mostly, it's not. The Lord will always provide!
I love you all! Have a great week!
