What's up family!

It's been an awesome week out here in Penasquitos! The wards out here are absolutely amazing and so fired up about the work!! It's awesome.

This past week we have been getting to know the members and stuff, Elder Fiso only has 1 transfer here so he is still getting to know the people with us. We had coordination meetings with both of our ward mission leaders, who are awesome. They are just taking care of business in both wards! It's awesome to see how great things can function when
the ward council really works together.

I went to church for the first time in the new area because of conference. It was sweet. 6   hours of church plus 2 ward councils made for a long Sunday but it was all really good. We had President Holmes of the Young Men's general presidency there. He did a training up here and then visited both of our wards for fast and testimony meeting which was awesome.

Fun experience in the second church (Penasquitos 1st ward) our assistant ward mission leader brother Knapp's mom was there and she's from Mexico, so brother Knapp and I switched off translating for her. That was pretty tough but really fun. Then she decided to go up and give her testimony so I translated that over the pulpit which was a little bit scary. haha but it was fun! :) I also translated Gospel Principals for her so I got a good 2 hours of practice in which was good since it's straight English pretty much from now on! Since we are in English wards we don't teach in Spanish, but we run into Spanish
speakers on the street and we refer them to the Spanish Elders over in the Poway branch.

We gave a sweet zone meeting on Friday about Faith. Based it on a talk given by Elder Bednar called "According to thy faith" It was given at BYUI in like 2000. 

(FYI  Elder Hansen has been called as Zone Leader as part of his latest transfer but never really mentioned it in his emails to us until we asked him later in another email).

That day I was also on exchanges with a new Elder in our district Elder Thueson, he's super cool, we had a really good, busy exchange.

We have been doing tons of Service out here too, it's been great. Life is good! 

Love Elder Hansen
