Hello everyone! Well, I officially have been transferred to Wildomar, in the southern half of the mission, in Lake Elsinore...... for the day. :) Elder Drebot, my old Zone Leader needed a companion because he is being transferred down here. So, he asked me to come along for the day. I will be back in Eastvale tomorrow. Elder Nelson will be joining Elder Crowther and I in Eastvale and we will officially be a trio. I was also called to be the District Leader again and I am excited about that opportunity to serve. The three of us are going to work so hard. That I can promise you. Here is how my week went!

We taught Shanon again this week. We taught her about the Plan of Salvation and it was a really great lesson. I am so grateful for the wonderful opportunity to teach Shannon. She is so awesome. We also went down to Lake Elsinore and had another lesson with Eva Huang. She sadly hasn't kept her commitments, so we only had time to teach her a couple of principles from the Restoration. Please pray for both of these ladies!

Wednesday was super awesome! Elder Crowther and I went down to Lake Elsinore again to have our first lesson with Blair who is Evangel's 11 year-old daughter! It was so awesome. Blair is super smart, and already has a strong desire to learn about Jesus Christ. We taught her about the Restoration and she accepted a baptismal date for June 18th!! Pray for her and her family as well. 

We picked up another new investigator, John Zhai. John is currently living with the Li Family, and he is pretty awesome. We taught him the Plan of Salvation. He had a lot of questions and already goes to a different church but we are going to see if we can continue to teach him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

We continue to spend a lot of time out Seeking With Faith. We are doing our best to find the elect and prepared souls. We also had an awesome English Class this week. We are really excited for our area. 

On Saturday morning we had our Weekly Blitz. I went out with Elder Olsen, one of my first Zone Leaders in the mission! He is an awesome missionary. We weren't able to find any referrals, but we talked to a lot of people and planted a lot of seeds. :) 

Sunday was craziness, but super great! We had 3 investigators come to church on Sunday. Evangel, her 11 year-old daughter Blair, and Shanon all came to church!! During our second hour of church, we had another lesson with Evangel, to teach her about some of the commandments, and prepare her for baptism. All of the sudden, her husband texted her, and said that he was sick, so she had to leave early. :( We had scheduled her interview directly following church, but that didn't happen, so she will have to wait until June 4th to be baptized! Please pray for her, and that she can have her interview this next Sunday, and that she can progress towards baptism. 

This week has been awesome. I really am excited to continue to work hard, and help those in need come unto the Savior. This is the greatest and most important work on the earth, and I am so grateful to be a part of it. Love you all have a great week!
