This week was a great week! We got some good work done. I also got sick a couple days... Fever, fatigue, etc... It wasn't fun, but I feel better now!! (: It has been sooooo hot yesterday! It was 103 yesterday when we got to church. We went on a couple exchanges and for one of them we walked all day because their bikes weren't working. So we just drank lots of water and walked in the sun all day (: It was great! Both exchanges went really good. I went with Elder Kanenwisher last Tuesday. We just seemed to be busy all day doing things. It was cool going on a second exchange with him! I really like Elder Kanenwisher! We just worked hard all day and we were really effective in our efforts. I went with Elder Walker on Saturday and that was when it was blazing hot... that was when we walked all day so I got to talk with him about a lot of things. He is a great missionary. He is really good at connecting with people! I was really surprised. We spent the morning talking to this guy at a garage sale, who was in his 70s or so. After listening to a couple of his stories he brought us into his home and showed us pictures of his family. It was so great! We really felt like we made a friend. It was cool (:
Ryan is doing great! We saw him a few times this week. A couple times he was really distracted but it was pretty good. He is just as funny as ever though! He likes to link arms with Elder Gerber and I when we walk around at church haha (: I've really come to love him a lot! It's so interesting too, because I never really spent much time around people with special needs. I have really come to love being around Ryan though. He is really great!
Ben and Anna are doing so great! I love every chance we get to teach them. We taught them about Priesthood and Auxiliaries, which was a long lesson, but it went really good! They had so many questions, but we did our best to answer them. We moved his baptismal date to September 27th so he has time to work out his marriage papers before he gets baptized. Thats the Saturday after transfers, so I reeeaaaalllyyy hope that I survive transfers here! We have a lesson scheduled with them this week, and we are excited for it!
Elder Gerber is doing awesome! We've gotten along so well this transfer. Things are going smoothly and we are coming up with ways of how we can be more effective in this ward. We seem to be spending a lot of our time in neighborhoods where there aren't many YSA's... We thought about it a lot. We are thinking about spending a lot more time up by the institute in Moorpark, and around the restaurants by the campus. And around apartment complexes. It should be really good. We also have a chance to proselyte on Moorpark campus with a student so that should be so awesome! The member just got off her mission and she is so excited to proselyte again!
Well have a wonderful week! Thank you for all your love and prayers (: Talk to you next week!
Elder Teeples (:
