This week was a very blessed week for me.  My thoughts and emotions are changing so fast due to the surreal idea of going home that it's difficult to discern what I'm actually thinking and feeling.  I have nothing more to say than thank you to my God!  This weekend was General Conference and two people (Erik and Maria) were baptized in between the first and second session on Sunday.  It was a baptism full of miracles that we didn't deserve but that a loving Heavenly Father granted us.  Hearts were touched, lives were changed, and future baptisms will follow.  We spent the whole week preparing for those baptisms. 
The Departing Fireside that was held Sunday was a time for all the missionaries going home to bear one last testimony to those they had taught throughout the past two years.  Once again the unreal feeling of going home caused me to be relaxed and composed.  I have continually put off the thought of going home these past few weeks so that I can endure to the end.  When I have taken the time to ponder, the Spirit fills my soul with joy and hope for the future ahead. 
After being so fortified and strengthened by the call of being a full time missionary for these past two years I have been humbled as I have come to realize the changes that will be occurring in the near future.  I am grateful for all the support and love that I have felt while on my mission.  I know that this isn't the end but a beginning.  I'm looking forward to the further growth that Heavenly Father wants me to gain.  I'm excited to share my stories with all of you! :)  I know God lives and love us. I know this church is true.  I testify that it is only through the Atonement of Christ that anything good comes to pass.  Our God is a miracle producing god, and for that I am eternally grateful!

This week was a really good week and the excitement and faith and hope that I have for next transfer just makes it better!  I feel that with transfers and the changes that will be taking place will help this ward turn around and that we will see a lot of success in these next 6 week!!  I'm super pumped!!  we didn't get to go by and see Sylvia this week.  It is a big bummer because of how close she is to baptism.  I hope to stop by this week.  John is doing really well!  He is reading in the Book of Mormon and we had a church tour with him this week.  We set a date with him for the 29 of this month!  I had a cool experience where my bike tire popped right next to my ear but I didn't suffer any hearing problems.  Divine intervention?  I think so!! :)  Elder Manwill and I went on exchanges again.  I love going on exchanges with Elder Manwill. We always have awesome spiritual experiences and this time we had an experience with the power of prayer and listening to the Spirit.  During this experience the Lord blessed us with help instead of us blessing the person we came in contact with.  It was really cool!  I'm looking forward to helping out the new district and trying to get the work bolting forward! :)

So we do a lot of service.  We pull weeds,  clean peoples yards, things like that.  We have helped people move too.   

I was "baptized" into a family here. They put
powder on your head.  It was pretty cool.

We do have transfers this Tuesday.  I will get a new companion!!  His name is Elder Plewe.  I will be back-up training him and I was called to be a district leader too.  There are 15 missionaries in my district (including me)!  That's a lot,  that's as big as some of our zones!  Two are sister missionaries and two are a senior couple and two are me and my comp.  That leaves me with 9 Elders that I will need to go on exchanges with and I need to go on one with a zone leader, so that's 10 exchanges this transfer (6 weeks)!  That's a lot! I'm excited for it!!  Other than that everything is the same.  I'm in the same ward, same area, same house.   So it should be a good, busy transfer!  yay!

It's awesome to hear about how you think of us all the time and that we are actually in the white shirts, ties, and black name tag.  It is kind of unreal, when you look back on it, having three sons serving missions at the same time, and then to think that it is almost over for one of us is even crazier!! haha.  Thank you for your prayers :)

Last Mother's Day phone call from the mission!

I cant wait to call home on Mother's Day!! The last phone call of the mission!

This week was a good week as always!  I was getting a bit sick at the beginning of the week but I'm feeling better now. We had a ward talent show this weekend and that cause us to give a lot of extra unexpected service.   So this week we didn't do too much teaching.  I've been making the best of what is thrown at me and I'm having fun with Elder Olson.  I hope that we get some teaching done this week.  I just feel like I'm accomplishing more when I'm teaching.  Knocking doors isn't too effective in this area because there are just better things to do with your time.  I have been getting to know some of our ward members really well as they feed us dinners (which we have almost every night) and as we visit with them.  I was on exchanges with Elder Manwill this past week and that was awesome!  We were able to do some good 'ol hard work.  We contacted a lot of people and had some good lessons!  Elder Manwill has a great mindset for missionary work.  Elder Olson is different than any of my other companions.  We are friends and we have fun together!
Your words this week are exactly what I needed and right on time! :)  We helped clean up the grounds of the local veteran's hospital and we did wear the yellow vests, haha.
Until next week,

Cali Elder keeping it real!

This week was a super good week for Elder Fife and myself. We had some days this week full of lessons and then we found some great potentials! We found a family of 8 that are just potentials at this point but we are praying hard that things pan out and the Lord blesses them and we teach well enough so they can make the correct decision to follow Jesus Christ!! The Lord is really stacking the deck in our favor!! We have 3 people with dates and we soon will have more. We invite everyone to be baptized on the first lesson so when we go back for the second one this week we hope to have them commit to a date. We have had some cool experiences this week and I'm excited for this week coming one!! We both are super tired at night and I don't know how we make it through the next day but the Lord helps us out. Its great to be with a companion like Elder Fife who is always trying to do better. We've been working great together and I'm very grateful for that.

I don't think i need anything at the moment but if you would like to pray the we do the Lords will with this family of 8 that would be awesome and that we get guided to a "golden" family :).  Did you have a baptism recently??  We are close to the church and we are and in average apartment.  The showers are cold depending on the day but life is good here in Whittier :) 
Thanks for your help and encouragement.

Happy Easter from Cali!

This week was another great week! one of our investigators, Alex, is progressing very well. He's reading and praying and is always there when we meet with him. I went on exchanges with Elder Taylor this week. He took over the area for the first time and did a great job! Elder Manning is doing a great job traning him. We set his first baptismal date while on the exchange. It was a great lesson! The Spirit was there. This week we found a member that was going all the way to L.A. to go to church because she didnt know about the one we go to. We ran into her later on p-day and then found her house by a miracle and she came to church yesterday! She is a solid member. We're teaching a boy how to read English. Next time we want to share the dvd about the Restoration. We have a lot of potential and will be focusing on listenting to the Spirit about who to go by and when. HAPPY EASTER!!

You asked what white washing was.  White washing is when two new missionaries go into an area.  They don't know the members, investigators, city streets,  they are new to everything in the area.  A lot of it is happening because wards are getting more missionaries.  If you get sister missionaries they will be white washing because there aren't any sisters to "hand off" the area to them. I'm sure the missionaries in the ward know what it means.  The display from the visitor's center in D.C. sounds cool!  Send me some pictures if you can.

Transfers ...... to Whittier!

This week was a great week! It's awesome to be with Elder Fife again! The area is great and we have a lot of potential going for us and for the zone. Elder Fife is a go-getter and that is super awesome. Its good to be on the move all the time. I feel like Elder Fife and I are going to do great here! We found a man named Chris who seems to have a lot of potential and we just contacted a family who were former investigators yesterday! With a lot of prayer and faith the Lord can bless this area a lot! I can feel the Lord putting everything into our hands.... I hope we don't mess it up. The zone is doing well and so are the areas that are white washing. Elders Tamacas and Wahlen have a date for the 31st of this month and Elder Manning! I think this zone is about to blow up!!

I think Elder Fife likes being a zone leader and I think we will work well together!  I'm excited about it.  We have always had sister missionaries in this mission since I have been here and we do have some in our zone.  They do the work a little differently then Elders most of the time so I'm interested to see how it will help out the ward back home!  We are seeing the surge big time.  We are at 191 missionaries in our mission and we were around 150-160 and we might be getting up to 250 before the end of the year so things are getting intense out here!! It is super awesome!

News from Long Beach

Como estas?  This transfer the zone leader responsabilities have really taken up a lot of time.  I'm not in the same stake that we meet with because the Spanish stake that we are a part of is outside of our mission.  We meet with the Stake President of the Cypress stake as apposed to the one for the Santa Ana Sur stake.  He has a way to get the whole stake more focused on missionary work and making it the "culture" of the stake.  He is going around to every ward during wark council and sharing this plan he has. 

One of the coolest things to do is to learn how Christ taught, or the Apostles and then mimic it in a lesson or a contact and feel the Spirit work throught you because you take on a better mind set and incorporate different attributes of Christ, which allows the Spirit to work.  I am really starting to realize how to love and show love.  I'm not perfect but its getting better.  I realized it a lot this week as I was saying bye to people because tomorrow I get transfered to Whittier after being here for 6ish months.  I will be with my MTC companion Elder Fife so im excited about that.  I don't know my new address yet but I'm still a zone leader and I'm still in a car but I think we will be biking because it's a small area.   You can still write me at the address to the right and I will get the letters.

This week was a good week.  I went on an exchange with Elder George this past week.  His heart is in the right place and he has been doing well.  He has a good sense of being able to tell when things are working smoothly and when they are not.  He has the desire to always do his best and he knows why he is out here.  The Martinez family is doing great!  I gave the kids some HLJ (CTR) rings.  this past transfer we have had the opportunity to give many blessings to the Sisters.  It's always tough to leave an area but it helps me see the love I really have for those I have served and helps me feel and understand the purpose of a missionary better.  It does cause me to feel like I wish I could have done more but I like to turn that into motivation for the next transfer.  I'm excited to be with Elder Fife and hope to teach some families in Whittier!!!
