Wouldn't want to come home early!


So, first things first.  The reason you didn't get an email till now is because Monday we went to Santa Cruz, and yesterday we were too busy to email.  So, I guess you get one today!  :)  You asked why we go to the wine walks. It's not the best place to contact, but it was at the park we usually contact at and there's a lot of booths set up like a fair for people to buy things, so not everyone was drinking, but there was still a lot.  But hey, everyone needs a chance to hear the gospel.  You never know who is prepared!  Our investigators are doing all right.  One is on track to be baptized in October, the other one has addictions to work on, so we'll see what happens there.  Today we tried to set up an appointment with our 3rd investigator, but she wants to study things out on her own and if she has questions, she said she will contact us.   She was like super solid at first, but she is good at reading the material and all, so we'll see how she rolls out.  Transfers are coming up. Thursday is leadership calls and Saturday is transfer calls, so we'll see what happens.  Elder Moody thinks he's getting moved, which I could see happening.  He's been here for about 6 months.  I would love to go back to the Poly program, but I'm guessing that's not going to happen-haha.  That's cool that you talked to Thomas' mom.  Ya, he told me he was thinking about coming home a little early for school, but that's interesting.  I guess he's needed for that full time.  His president also receives revelation for the missionaries, too, so who knows what's in store for him.  I wouldn't want to come home early (sorry) haha.  Vanessa told me she was royalty.  That's super cool!
This last week was all right.  We didn't hit our goal on lessons, but we were able to meet with all of our investigators and help them out.  We also did quite a bit of service (but I am definitely not complaining on that one).  Hopefully, the rest of this week goes better.  So, on Monday, we went to Santa Cruz and played on the beach.  We played volleyball, rugby, and sat around and talked.  It was a lot of fun!  Then, later that night, we went to the Ve'e's.  They used to be in our ward, but now they're in the Samoan branch.  They had FHE with the Samoan sisters and invited us over.  It was a lot of fun.  We had a talent show for FHE, but sadly, they made a rule, no recording.  But it was funny and cool-a really good night!  I did outer space spray painting and they seemed to enjoy it.  The other people danced the hula or a Samoan dance, or sang to a song-it was really cool!  The main reason they did a talent show was because it was going to be sister Kapu's last time there for FHE and she helped bring brother Ve'e, along with sister Tauti, into the church last month.  It was a special FHE that I'm glad we were able to be a part of!  So far this week, we haven't had a whole lot of lessons, but mostly service.  Hopefully, we can find some more people to teach!  Well, I hope you are having a good week and have a great rest of the week!  Love ya!
