Aloha Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? I am doing great here in Glendale - Sharing the Gospel and helping others Come unto Christ. This week was pretty good, lots of our appointment fell through but we still had some great lessons with some new investigators. We had a great lesson this week with Dian on the Book of Mormon, she is starting to read the Book of Mormon from the beginning. She had some questions when she was reading it so we tried to clarify some things. She has a lot of concerns but hopefully by reading the Book of Mormon, the Spirit can resolve them and she can know that the Gospel has been Restored and it can help her come closer to our Heavenly Father. We took Barb Davis to a Baptism on Saturday and she loved it. She had her baptism interview right after and passed. She is getting baptized this Saturday - September 8. We also had a great lesson on Wednesday with a new investigator Raymond on the Restoration of the Gospel and committed him to read and pray about the Book of Mormon. His girlfriend is a less active member so we are trying to help her come back to church also. He seems pretty interested in learning about the Gospel and how it can bless his life. We also had a lesson with the Ledezma's family on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her mother - Lisa is a member but her 3 kids are not baptized so we are starting to teach them. We had a great Sabbath day, small church attendance because it being Labor Day weekend lots of people were busy but we still had 4 investigators that came to church. We did not get to meet with a lot of our progressing investigators this week. The Mins Family - Vanessa, Tashaney, and Camia are set to be baptized next weekend September 15. Jessica Luzinia is also set to be baptized on September 15. September is looking to be a great month for our investigators to make their first covenant with God through Baptism and Confirmation and enter the gate towards Eternal Life. That was my great week here in the Mission Field Teaching our brothers and sisters the Restored Gospel that our Savior - Jesus Christ taught and showed us the way to Eternal Happiness. Through the Atonement we can return to live with God and our Families Forever. The Gospel is so amazing and I am so honored to be able to represent - Jesus Christ and help those that the Lord is preparing to receive his message and how it can bless their lives. I love and miss you all. My prayers are with you always. Take Care and may our Heavenly Father continue to guide and keep you all safe.
