Wow that sounds like a sweet trip down to St. George. That place is always so fun! I’m glad that you enjoyed church there. That is too bad that the elder didn't know Andrew. Have you found his mission address yet?
So this week has been pretty good. It started off slow but in the end it ended up to be great! So Tuesday felt like Monday long and slow. Haha but after that we went on exchanges with the district leader and that totally changed the week around! I went to his area to be with his companion and the district leader came here to be with elder Gray. While I was there we went to the visitor’s center with an investigator and the spirit was so strong. We watched the testaments movie and I forgot how strong that story really is. It’s so different to read it in the scriptures and to see it acted out. I loved it. That was the first time that I have been up there with an investigator in my mission and now I want to take everyone up to the V.C. haha. So then we finished exchanges and that was good. And while I was gone elder Gray found 2 new investigators that are super ready for the gospel! They’re Frank and Marilynn Ormbsy they are around 65 and have a son, and he and his family are in the church. So we are super excited to teach them. Then we were also able to set a baptism date with Andy Tomatsu for the 6th of November. He is still trying to find an answer to know if this is the true church but I know that the Lord will bless him as he continues to make changes in his life. We also set a date with Lily she has been trying to find that Jesus is he Savior and this week she felt like he is and that she needs to be baptized. So she has a date for the 13 of November. So things are looking up here in Alameda :) Yesterday we had dinner with this couple in the ward and they had this butternut squash soup and it wasn't my favorite but I still ate it haha. Grandma Ami would love it. We got rain again for the first time in along time and it felt nice, at first I didn't like it, but that changed pretty quick and then every thing was good.
That’s crazy that you found the missionaries right by our house! I’m sure that they will love to eat with Lori it’s always nice to meet people that want to feed us. Haha :)
I’m glad that Paul is loving work. It is really great place. Is he a cashier or working in a department?
Well that was my week I hope you all have a wonderful week I love you all a ton!!
Love elder Christensen
