Transfer 14 Week 1 August 10 2015

So in tuesday I arrived to my new area with my new companion. Like i said last week my new companion is named Elder Miller he is from Grand Junction, Colorado. He has almost been a missionary for 6 months and he is really cool! We get along well, and we had a lot of success this week!

So there are actually 3 companionships of missionaries in my ward! So ya that means that there are six of us. Which means that my area isnt extremely large like it usually is. Which is nice since both of us are new to the area so we kind of have to learn it together. 

So most of the week was spent meeting all of the members and investigators that live in our area. Which was great because we have a lot of really cool people in the area. We have and investigator named Ricardo who is super excited to be baptized! he has read the whole Book of Mormon and he has an extremely strong testimony of the Gospel. Unfortunately he needs to get married before he can be baptized. But we are hoping that he can get married very soon. 

We also found a new family this week. We contacted this man in the street. He is a very active member of a different chuch. Actually i am pretty sure that he is basically the pastor, but we shared a short message about the resoration of the gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith right there in the street, and he said that he wants to hear more. He also said that he is going to go to the church with us this coming Sunday with his family. He has a wife and one daughter. He also gave us each a bag of prickly pears (Ya like the ones in The Jungle Book) which are super good! 

Well i dont really have time to write any more but really a lot of things are happening in the area. Oh ya! yesterday church was great! there is a family in my ward that lived in my previous area that i had a year ago! it was really great to see them again! they live in my area and they are a really cool family.

Anyway i guess that is it for now
