"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

Kuwento mo sa pagong!

Ha soooo... Little update? Sure why not? This week was super busy though with Zone Interviews, then my comp had District Trainer training and then Elder Waite and his comp had a wedding/baptism on Saturday, so we weren't able to get a whole lot of appointments in. But it's all good! Still a dope week! The baptism and wedding was way sick. The brother was actually a former member who got excommunicated, but has now come back to church and got married. His new wife was able to get baptized. Such a cool day. The brother's way dope. He made all the clothes for the wedding including the dresses for his wife and their two little girls. Also, the brother is an insane magician and has been showing me some stuff. Hopefully I'll be David Blaine stat, when I get home.

Umm oh, so my comp and I had a good idea, but haven't been able to do it yet. But the other day we got stopped by like 5 prostitutes. Next time we see them, we're gonna OYM them with a law of chastity pamphlet. Ha! I thought that was pretty clever. Can't wait!

Well, not a whole lot though really. We have this way dope investigator we teach who is 23 and lives with his girlfriend who is a less active and their little girl. So... obviously we've been trying to get them married and get the brother baptized, cause they're way dope. Brother's been taught for like a year now, but never goes to church and lacks motivation to get things done. We had a way sick lesson with him though, and told him our purpose as missionaries and if he really wants all these things like he says he days, we'll obviously help, but it's up to him. Yeah and they finally came to church yesterday! Cool huh?

Also, we've been teaching this new family we found on the street the other day. The sister's a less active and the brother is our new investigator, and hopefully their kids soon too. Brother's way sick. He's a drummer and that's all he does. He's been to Japan like 15 times to play shows up there. Way sick! He keeps telling us he's gonna come to church.  We don't even have to invite him. He hasn't been able to come yet, but it's just cause he has had a ton of gigs lately. 

Here's a good example for all of us. No one should never have an excuse to not go to church. So one of our investigators has been struggling hardcore lately. We've been teaching her so that she and the her less active boyfriend that she lives with, can get married so she can get baptized, just like everyone else, Ha. But brother's been without a job, and lately they couldn't afford to pay their electric bill, so it got cut off. Also, they haven't had money for hardly any food and water for them and their kids. We had a dope lesson about 3rd Nephi 13:33, and so she came to church the next Sunday. Then we went there to share a lesson and right before we started, a guy came to the house and offered brother a job. So obviously he took it and has been gone for a few weeks. She was way excited and recognized the blessing from God. Yesterday she came to church with one of her kids, but had to leave after sacrament. So after church we went to her house, but her house was all torn apart and everything was gone. We found her staying in a neighbors house a few houses down. Apparently she hasn't had money to pay, and has had problems with the neighbors. She still has no money and only has two weeks to find a new home (and keep in mind these houses are like one room tiny little things). We were just like Sister?! All this has been happening and you still came to church? I was so impressed. And she's not even a member. We had a way good teach with her about Joseph Smith's story in Carthridge Jail. Then being representatives of Christ, we were able to promise her some blessings found in Ether 12:6,12. But freak! I kept telling her how impressed I was with her faith. Her husbands away, just got kicked out of her house, still has no money food, water or electricity, yet she came to church. Dope!

Aight, but yeah that's all! Just killin' it out here! Ya know, no biggie :)

Love you all!
