Okay so my recap for the week🎃
Monday- So on Monday night we went to a family's house and we had dinner and a little bon-fire in their front yard, it was really relaxing and fun. They live out in the woods kind of by themselves so we got to watch the sunset and it was nice and quiet except for the kids haha. We played some games and stuff afterwards. Every single kid on the east coast is obsessed with Pokémon, they all have a ton of cards and they all trade with each other and stuff. So I decided to start my own collection lol my companion started one in his first area and now he has a ton of cards from all of his areas😂 so yeah

Tuesday- On Tuesday we had district meeting and I gave a lesson on Christlike Attributes then we went on exchanges with our zone leaders and it was awesome! I went with an Elder named Elder Aitken and we had a blast, he's super cool. He had a car so we got to drive all over the place and try a bunch of less active members. We were able to set up some appointments for later this week so it was successful. But we also found one guy who gave us a signed piece of paper saying that he wants his records removed🙃 so technically we lowered the church membership by proselyting and finding, oops. Then we went to a little pizza joint that night for dinner down town and it was really good🍕😋
Wednesday- On Wednesday we did service for Brother Alva again but it was nothing too exciting💁 we just cleaned up around the yard and stuff we got to watch the hawk come back and eat some more rats so that was pretty cool🐀 then I got to see the rest of his pets. This guy gets weirder and weirder the more I learn about him😂 he has a 100 pound tortoise that just walks around his house in addition to his other pets. It looks like bowser, it's so big and it's still a baby! After service we went and visited Modesto and it went well. We started teaching him about the plan of salvation, I try to use a lot of Spanish but then he will just randomly switch back to English so it’s frustrating some times😅 then we helped a homeless man move all of his stuff into an apartment that we found haha not only do missionaries preach the gospel but now they house the homeless. After that we went to dinner with an odd member to another pizza place. The guy that took us lived in Russia for a few years with his friends and said he was doing "unofficial work" for the church🤔 but now he lives by himself here and is retired from the government. I think he's a spy, that's my guess. Then we went to Book of Mormon class which was nothing special.

Perhaps for next week, we could wipe down the miror?
Sunday- Yesterday we went to church and we are getting more and more less actives back out! We got some more members to come with us for team ups this week so that was good. After church we did some studies then went to dinner with a family, nothing really worth mentioning. Then last night we rode our bikes 6 miles trying to find that guy named Orlando but I think we got the wrong number for his address because my companion and I both hear different house numbers and the one we tried knocking on wasn't him. So we are going to try giving him a call tomorrow and find out where he actually lives. I thought it was a pointless bike trip until on our way home we decided to try a potential investigator who we were close to dropping but then she answered the door! She loved our visit, and it was all Spanish and we talked about a few scriptures with her and she has a strong testimony but her husband is very anti-church. He wouldn't even turn off his football game while we visited with her. It was hard to focus with Odell Beckham dancing on screen followed by Kelly Clarkson singing hahaha but we had a good talk with her and hopefully her husband will loosen up a little bit by seeing how happy she is with the church. 🙏
Anyways that was my week! Thank you for sending me emails about yours❤️ I love reading them. Love and miss you guys tons💕
