We have a new investigator this week. His name is Solaiman Joshan. Come to find out, he lives in some apartments that are above a tattoo parlor. I didn't even know that apartments were up there. I guess where there is room, use it! It's like ants. We live in these big hives called towns and cities, and we don't spread out across the land. I know there is plenty of land in California, it's just the water is all I guess. Anyway, Solaiman goes to some kind of Christian church-- don't know which though. There are so many church's that man have made, it's hard to know which one is true without reading ALL the scriptures that have been given to us. We gave him a copy of the Book of Mormon along with a Bible that he wanted. We still have yet to set up another appointment with him to have our first discussion.
Sally is still having a hard time with her grandson with the drug problem. She's ill right now, but nothing major. God has a message of hope to all the world. That message is the plan of salvation. Before we were born,we understood that we would go through hard times. This life is the time to meet God and test our faith whether we will obey our Father in Heaven or not. If we endure our trials well, God will exalt us on high. If we follow the commandments, we will find peace in this life and for eternity as well. That is God's message and promise.
The Tagal's dropped us when we were about to drop them. I said to myself after that, 6 months is way to long to work with someone. They just did not want to convert from Catholic. All we can do now is love them and pray and hope that they will warm up to God in finding a true answer from Him through the scriptures.
That's about it this week. We have been trying to see a bunch of prospective Elders this week. Most seem to not be interested. Take care everyone.
P.S. We are going to have another Zone Conference on Wednesday in Stockton. Going to see Elder Brown again and many other cool missionaries.
Elder White and Elder Beus enjoying themselves!
