Well, this week was a BUSY week, and I don't have much time today to talk about it, because today is really busy, too! We did a lot of finding and with the broadcast, the English wards have really been helping us find Spanish speaking neighbors/friends/families ans such. It is amazing to see the fire they have! Pretty much no one went to see the broadcast in our ward, but we talked to Obispo about maybe watching part of the broadcast during the 3rd hour of church because it was 5th Sunday-meaning Missionary Sunday again. He agreed and said he was thinking about it already, and the fact that we brought it up confirmed that it was something that he should do. It was a great opportunity, and we hope that it boosts up the confidence to share with the members in our ward as well. Directly after our ward, we were invited to visit the English wards up in Anaheim Hills, and they had referrals WAITING for us! It was awesome. There are a lot of members in the wards who speak Spanish, and have offered to come out. Plus, the broadcast really hit home with our ward mission leader, and he is working hard on pumping up the Spanish ward, as well...so we are looking forward to a lot of success coming from this.
Sorry I don't have much time to share this week, but this week was ultimately a good week and a lot of fun, despite the fact that it was SO hot! ha I should be used to it by now...but nope! Still sizzling ha. I look forward to the rain! :)
I hope all is well back at home, and that you are enjoying your vacation here. I love seeing all the pictures and it makes me laugh that the boys still walk with there hands up. :) So cute! I love you all so much, and thank you for the birthday wishes. My companion says he has already made plans...so we'll see where this goes. ;) LOVE YOU and talk to you later!
