South Coast Ward is Amazing!

Friends and Family,
   This week has been awesome!   There are so many things to do.  It is weird going from a more wealthier area to a more humble area.  We were able to schedule a lot of appointments for this week.  We are planning on teaching a lot. 
   So much has happened I don't even know where to start.  We were able to meet a part member family.  The dad's name is Joe.  He is a convert for about a year and a half and is a great guy.  He has had a lot of trials this past year and has been a little less active.  But we were able to go into his home and share a message with the family and found out his son Jacento is 9 and not baptized.  He has been going to church but has not been able (with their circumstances) to get him baptized.  So we set a date for March 24th for his baptism.  We are really excited about that.  We went from having 1 investigator to 15 investigators this week!  So we will be teaching a ton this transfer.  A teaching missionary is a happy missionary! 
   We met with the Stake presidency as missionaries and all the ward missionaries.  We talked about missionary stuff hard core in the Newport Stake.  There are going to be many miracles this next year.   I am excited to be in this area and stake!
   Elder Childs, my companion, is the funniest kid ever.  He loves the outdoors and likes to challenge people to a dance off.  He is 6'3"  and when I met him he had bleached hair because of the kind of Gel he was using.  haha.  We have some pretty mighty goals that we are striving for this transfer and the Lord has already brought forth some miracles. 
   South Coast Ward is amazing!  We have like the youngest bishopric ever.  Bishop Harmer is like in his early 30's along with his second counselor.  Then Brother Ta'ai the first counselor is 27.  So it is pretty cool to be a part of their ward council and talk about ways we can improve the ward and bring more people back. 
   This week we just did a lot of finding and a lot of setting appointments.  We are excited at the possibilities and we know with faith we will bring to pass Heavenly Father's will.
