Sept. 2, 2014B-day

Once upon the last week, in a land far away. Full of fruits, nuts, Democrats and all manner of Cali fornication. Where the sun never ceases to shine. There were two missionaries, with one goal in mind. To FIND, TEACH, and BAPTIZE. Scouring the landscape painted with a blazing orange sun set, speckled in palm trees. Spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. This epic, action packed, real life, experience is happening in an area near you.
Alright So this week was good. Sorry there was no email last week. I ran out of time. This week was a lot better then the last. After spending most of last week at the Er and doctors appointments. I thought I had appendicitis. Luckily I didn't. SO it could only go up right? Thankfully it did.
This last week we were able talk to Sita and start teaching her again. She knows the Book of Mormon is True, but doesn't think Joseph Smith was a prophet. We are helping her through that. The good news is that she said that she would be willing to do anything that was required to join Christ's Church. It is only a matter of time before she enters the waters of baptism.
We started teaching a couple last week named William and Linda. Their Friends introduced them to the gospel and they came and found us. A few weeks ago Elder Tyger and his previous companion were walking up the long drive way to our apartment. William and Linda pulled up and asked them to come by and teach them. Of course this never happens, so their first reaction was that they just wanted to bash with us. So they didn't stop by. Then I got transferred here and decided that we should stop by any way. Who knows, I thought, they could be golden investigators. So we have been stopping by over the last few weeks and no one was home. Then we finally met them, and they have no intentions of arguing about our beliefs. We have taught them the plan of salvation, and have been trying to set up another appointment. However they are not getting along and don't want us to come over when they are arguing.
Other than that.... I had a fun Birthday yesterday. Thanks for everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday. It was great. We had a cool miracle yesterday. We split the ward with Sister Missionaries and they have almost all of the active members on their side. So we don't really get to know any of them. Yesterday we had a awesome family move into our side. They are recent converts and absolutely love missionaries.
