This week has been good! It went by so fast I can't believe it is preparation day again!!!!! We have been following up with potential investigators and we have got 4 new ones!!!!!!!!! Yessssss!!!!!! 2 out of the 4 I can't understand half the words they say. ha ha. We have been looking for people that have been sincerely seeking the truth. We met a man named Edgar who we taught the first Lesson to. We invited him to be baptized and he said he already has been baptized. We explained the priesthood authority and told him tha the could come to know the things we say are true by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. He is a very humble guy who found God when he was in jail and he is so sincere. I have so much faith that people can come to the knowledge of the truth by praying to our Father in Heaven. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that Edgar is going to come to that knowledge too. We have taught Mo who is from Burma and speaks Burmese. ha ha. He is a very smart man has read every book in every religion. He calls himself Budhist and has already read the Book of Mormon all the way through and is in Alma for the second time. He is seeking and he loves how the Book of Mormon testifies of one God. So its interesting. Then our next investigator, Named Kirit, has a baptismal date. He is from India and is Hindu. He was praying for truth and more knowledge in his life one day and we "knocked" into his life. He has read to Mosiah in one week and believes what we say is true. He is getting permission from his family to see if he could be baptized because he is scared that he will be an outcast with all his friends and family if he joins our church. They are all Hindu and I am praying really hard that they will soften their hearts because its a culture thing with having the blessing of the family. We are teaching him of the blessings of being baptized. Its really frustrating, I can only understand half the words Mo and Kirit say and I have to pray for the gift of tongues to understand them ha ha. But they are amazing humble people and so glad we have found them. We finally got investigators that are progressing. I am starting to forget everything at home about sports and myself. I notice when I do that, the work progresses and time flies by. I can't believe I've been out four months. I am starting to really enjoy Fullerton. We reached our goal of placing 5 Book of Mormons in the hearts of the people this week getting 7. I am really learning how to reach goals and relying on the Lord. My goals are high so I am praying and serving hard. I LOVE California. Forecast clear and 70 degrees blues skies above it's beautiful. Love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!
