Aloha Ohana and Friends,

How are you all doing?  Well for me, I am doing just great here in Glendale - Sharing the Gospel and helping others receive the happiness that comes from living the Gospel in their lives.  This week was pretty good, it was pretty hot - from the week before but it should start cooling down.  We had some great lessons this week with our investigators that we are teaching.  Last Sunday, we were riding home for the night when we met a former investigator that we thought moved out of our area so we talked to her for a little bit and found out she moved a few blocks away.  She told us where she lived so on Tuesday, we went back to teach her and her 2 siblings.  She was not there but we met with her siblings Ben (11yr) and Britney (15yr) and started teaching them.  They were taught most of the lessons before so we are just reviewing it with them and committed them to be baptized on October 13.  We also met with the Ledesma kids (Florrena, Florisa, and Florencio) this week and read 1 Nephi 8 with them about the Tree of Life and committed them to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it is true and if they should get baptized.  We also met with Georgiana this week and continue preparing her for her baptism. She needs to meet with Bishop to discuss getting married soon.  We also met with Joanne and read Alma 7 with her and taught her that everything lays upon the Book of Mormon and it is the keystone of our religion.  The Book of Mormon is evidence that the Gospel was restored through Joseph Smith and we continue to have the fullness of the Gospel today through a living prophet Thomas S. Monson. We ended the lesson by reading Moroni 10:3-5 with her bearing our testimony about the Book of Mormon and committed her to read and pray about it and she will receive an answer that it is true by the power of the Holy Ghost. We know that if she sincerely wants to know the truth that the Holy Ghost will confirm her that it is true and by living the principles and ordinances of the Gospel she can return to live with God again. This past week we had a great transfer meeting with 24 new and excited missionaries that joined the Arizona Phoenix Mission.  It is so wonderful to hear the new missionaries bear their testimony of how grateful they are to start their mission and serve the Lord. My companion Elder Vaoga and I did not get transferred but we had to go to a meeting so we got to see the missionaries who got transfered to new areas with a new companion. We had a great Sabbath day with wonderful talks on doing Family History work and doing the ordinances for our ancestors so they can enjoy the blessing of the Gospel.  Then we had a very spiritual missionary fireside that evening with great talks on the restoration of the Gospel, Plan of Salvation, and the Divinity of Jesus Christ with wonderful musical numbers that made the spirit so strong. Well that was my great week here in the mission field teaching the Gospel and helping others Come unto Christ so they can be on the straight and narrow path towards eternal life.  I know that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lives and loves us all so much that they want us to return to their presence.  The Book of Mormon is the word of God that testifies of our Savior, Jesus Christ and his ministry to the people in the americas. Jesus Christ is our Savior and redeemer that atoned for our sins so we can be with our families for eternity.  My prayers are with you all.  Till next week.  Take care and have a great week.
