Que transa queridos amigos y familia??
Hope you all have had a fantastic week! I know we have for sure!
Here's some highlights of what's been going down in sunny San Diego.
Last week I went on exchanges to the other elders area here in the Logan Heights branch. I was with Elder Diaz, who has been out for about 4 weeks now. He's awesome and it's awesome to see how much fire he has for sharing the gospel. We had an awesome day and met a couple really cool people throughout the day, it's a walking area so it's nice to be out and able to talk to everyone we see.
Thursday I came back to our good old area- we helped Gissel, a convert of a couple of weeks find a name to take to the temple which was sweet, and then we brought Abdi, our recent convert out to a lesson with us and he shared his testimony which was super cool. He's such an awesome kid! We also had an awesome lesson with Veronica Partida- who we met on exchanges and she is just so prepared. Her son is preparing for a mission, and she has a lot of LDS family members but isn't baptized herself. We had some great lessons with her, she's super cool. One of the nicest people I've meet and so humble and open to the Holy Spirit.
Saturday was super awesome. The branch had a temple baptism trip for youth and recent converts and since we had two recent converts going we got to go! (Picture at the bottom) it was awesome. The temple is the best, it's really great to get away from the world. It's like heaven on earth
Sunday Veronica and her sister Rebecca and her nephew Brian came to church, Rebecca is a member but Brian and Veronica aren't yet. It was a really good sacrament meeting and I think they really enjoyed it. It was cool because they called Veronica in to work, but she said sorry I can't go until later because I have church. That was awesome because that takes a lot of faith, but she really loved it.
Today Anna from the valley was over here in San Diego! We met for lunch, that was a fun surprise. Unfortunately we forgot to take a picture...
Those are pretty much e highlights of the week! Everything out here is good, Elder Burt and I are having a ton of fun an seeing miracles left and right. God's hand is truly in His work and in each and every one of our lives, I love you all!!!
