What's up??

Sick week!!! Tons of cool things happened this week, I'll probably neglect to put a lot of them into this though!

First and foremost, Elder Oaks, Elder Robbins and Elder Calderwood came and spoke to our mission on Saturday it was so inspiring!! At the beginning of the meeting we had the chance to shake all of their hands. There is no doubt in my mind that Elder Oaks is an Apostle and witness of the Savior, it was inspiring to even just shake his hand and to make eye contact with him. The Spirit was so strong in that meeting, definitely something I will remember for the rest of my life! 

We had 3 of our investigators come to church this week which was awesome! Tim (his GF Felicia worked until 1 am so she couldn't come), Ashley (her BF Regime couldn't come because he was sick) and Brian all came, stuff is happening here! We had a good and kind of humorous lesson with Carlos this week again haha.. We stopped by and he was drunk but that turned out to be a good thing (I'll explain haha)! It worked out good because he was drunk enough to be completely open and spill his concern to us but he wasn't too drunk to where it would have gotten sketchy haha! So we decided to take advantage of it and figure out what his concern is! Not really to our surprise, we found out that he hasn't prayed about the Book of Mormon because he knows he will get an answer that will change his life. He is afraid, and I don't really blame him! He is married to a guy and if he finds out that the Book of Mormon is true he knows that he will have to get baptized and change his life style, please keep him in your prayers!! Also we contacted some guy the other night who seems super solid, he just got out of jail and every time he gets out of jail he always gets a bunch of signs from God saying that he needs to get his life back on the path. I asked him for an example and he shared with us that when he was taking out the trash he found a pamphlet about God that said "Restoration" on it, and I showed him a Restoration pamphlet and he said that was the same one and that this is a sign from God, super legit!!

This week Elder Nelson and I were out on the bikes pretty far away from our apartment and his tire popped (dang) so we had to walk to a bunch of appointments and it took longer than we thought and we had an appointment at 5:00 that there was no way we were gonna make it on time on foot to! As we were walking our bikes as quickly as possible (with faith) a brother in the Spanish speaking ward pulled over in his tiny pick up truck and told us to get in! The problem was, he literally didn't speak any English so I had to communicate with him completely in Spanish and it actually worked out good! We got to the place we needed to be on time and we got to jam to some sweet Hispanic tunes! Miracle!

Have a good week!
