My new companion is Elder Jones from Manchester England. So I've been making Wallace and Grommit jokes with him, I'll ask where the cheese is and stuff like that. I love his accent. He is really really funny and works hard. He played soccer as well before his mission, he's a great Elder and a convert to the church.
Peter was supposed to be baptized this week but decided to stop by another church last week, a church notorious for destroying other churches in their services. Unfortunately, he likes it better there and decided not to be baptized. I was pretty heartbroken for Peter, he left the sure value of Gold he had for fools gold at this other church, they really teach to catch appeal of people and teach lots of things to bring down other churches and lift up theirs. I was so confused and sad for Peter who had gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon and the restored gospel but still decided not to join. We have been trying to go to his house but his kids will tell us he's sleeping but who knows. But because it's the Lords work we know our efforts have not been wasted. We have found lots of cool potential people this week though in spite of challenges. We found a cool part member family that wants to come back as family, they feels it's time, and their teenage kids have not yet been baptized. So that will be a good lead for us!
Here is a pic of me and Elder Jones at the Chinese Hospital. We were asked to give this little primary girl a blessing who is having stomach problems.
It's the hot season here and it's a really big blessing that with the new missionary schedule. we study during the hotter parts of the day .
Well, we are going to watch Moana today for our district activity so that will be really fun. This is possibly my last transfer here in Santa Cruz, but you can never be too sure. Things are going really well! I love you all and thank you for your emails and support and prayers.
