This last weekend was pretty fun. We had our ward Fall Festival. For dinner, we had pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, and nacho's. It was all pretty good. After dinner, we helped be a part of door-a-treating instead of trunk-or-treating since it was raining that day. I bet it's going to be a wet winter this year here in California. I took a bunch of pictures for the whole event and all the doors that were decorated. We even had a non-member family show up--none other than Monica herself who we helped paint her house. Her husband, and 2+ of her kids showed up. We even took home some of the candy that they gave us to pass out. I was surprised that Monica was going to help us out with the candy to pass out since we are always poor.
Monday, we had dinner with Sister Cassetta again. This time, we had a non-member at dinner and we were able to do a member home lesson. We mentioned the whole plan of aalvation but didn't go in depth. He thought it was interesting but he wasn't interested yet. He said that he will really think about talking to us more and taking up our discussions.
Thursday, we accidentally called a member from Ripon ward who we thought was the member that was in our ward. They both have the same last name: Brother Roberts. We had him help us go out into the countryside again to contact some potentials. He was super nice, bald, and had an interesting mission back in his youth. He was called to the French islands of the South Pacific. He was the mission president's main man in keeping the missionaries on task since a lot of them were very lazy and very apostate. He traveled the mission doing some of the President's tasks such as reorganizing branch's, doing missionary/baptism interviews, keeping missionaries in line, and giving council to him of what he thought was the next best thing for the mission to do and become. Overall, he loved his mission. I don't remember the whole story since he talked for the straight 2 hours. It sure kept us entertained. It's hard finding addresses in the dark in the countryside for sure.
We had another dinner with Brother Cortez, and sister Cervantes. He gave the pineapple surprise again to all of us, especially to the new elders. Later that night, we taught Sally another one of her new member lessons of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We had a great discussion on faith, hope, repentance, baptism, and enduring to the end within the temple and gaining all the ordinances. That's about it for this week Love you all.
