Well Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone had a good week! Things started to get a little toasty here in Huntington Beach and Westminister. After Thursday things started to get hot, like we hit the high 90's and in the evenings it is super humid so you still get a good sweat. But that is ok because with the success the Lord is giving is you focus on the things that are more important.

Well, I don't know what to write about. This week we had a lot of great opportunities to teach our investigators, we found a new investigator to start teaching, and we had 4 investigators come to church on Sunday. I guess I can give a little bit more details about these overviews.

So this week we had 4 of our investigators come to church. We had Angelica, who 3 of her children are baptized but only 1 is active and Angelica has know about the church for a while. She isn't baptized because she has a few doubts and she isn't married to the guy she is living with nor does he want to get married. But she has started making little changes to her life, such as read the scriptures and come to church, and she is starting to see a difference in her life. So that is her. Then we had Eduarda and her 2 daughters, Angie and Lizeth, come to church. We have been working hard with Angie and Lizeth to have them come, especially to the classes. At first they didn't because they don't like the first hour because it is boring. But we had some YW call them and invite them to come and stay for the classes. Well, by the end of the block, both were all smiles and really enjoyed it all. So that was a great first step for them and we are excited for them.

This week we had a great week of teaching our investigators. We have a great pool of investigators we are teaching and all have a great desire to come closer to Christ. We dropped several investigators to start this transfer, and our teaching pool isn't as big as it was when we started. However the quality of people we are teaching is alot better. We have Roxanna, who just wants a stronger relationship with God and for her son to know God. We found a new investigator, Javiera, who has fallen away from God due to other things, but now wants to come closer to Him in order to find the peace and happiness she sees in some of her friends at school who are members. So this week we have been able to accomplish many of our goals and have seen a lot of success from the Lord.

Well, things are going good with Elder Obray and I. With the heat and hard work, we have been trying to do everything possible to stay awake and have the energy to work hard. Elder Obray has started settling in to the missionary routine and is starting to get the hang of things. It is pretty different being a DL and trainer at the same time. But like I said 4 weeks ago, the Lord doesn't want me to slack off and I definitely have had no time to do so. If anything I have felt an urgency to just work hard and finish everything off as best as I can. So I couldn't have asked for a better way to finish my last two transfers.

Well that is pretty much everything. I hope everyone is having a good week and are ready for a new one. We are super excited for this week and can't wait to see what the Lord has prepared for us.

Love,
Elder Roberts
