Hello! This week went really well (: This past Saturday was soooo hot! Apparently Mexico had a tropical storm, so it pushed all the warm air up into the states. So it was hot and humid... Nasty. Not a good combo! I have decided I'm never going to live somewhere where it is hot and humid.... So that's good to know (: I am so climatized to California it is funny.... Anything below 50, and I'm cold. Anything above 80, I'm burning up. It's going to be a sad experience when I come home and it is 3 degrees. Ha should be fun!Anywho! We had a great week! this past week was the 5th week of the transfer. The transfer has gone by so dang fast! I can't even believe it. I really feel like I just got here! Ventura is awesome though. The member and investigators here are great.
We are also planning on stopping by the Gagnon's this week to hopefully talk a little bit and set up a return appointment.
We have been still seeking out all the less actives in our ward. There have been lots of varied experiences with that one! A few slammed doors, a few people looking confused becuase the people we are looking for moved, and just a lot of other things. But we are making real progress with that. We haven't found anybody to teach through the people on the list, but we have found a couple potentials from the areas where they live, so that is good (: we also have found some great less active members that we are trying to help get back to church, including the Martin's who I will talk about a little bit.
The second blessing this week was one for Sister Martin. Bro and Sis Martin are less actives, but they are sooooo cool! They are awesome. We have had dinner with them in the past and we are going there in a couple days. We have been helping/inviting them to come back to church, and the came a week ago, but weren't there yesterday, so we stopped by last night to check on them. Sis Martin's back was hurting quite a bit, and she asked us for a blessing. They went for a long walk yesterday, and she said that her back had been bugging her a lot all day. (I could tell because she wasn't walking too good.) Bro Martin insisted on us giving the blessing so Elder Castro gave her one after I anointed, and it was so great! After the blessing she was very grateful and she said it felt a lot better. and I could tell because she was walking normal! It is so amazing what the preisthood can do (: It is so amazing!
I hope all is going well at home! I love and miss you and you are all in my prayers every day! Thank you for all that you do for me (: I hope your schooling is going well and I hope you are getting into the hang of things! Love ya!
