|At a member's house for dinner and smores for dessert|
This last week for flew by! So I went on two exchanges, one with a Zone Leader (Elder Young from South Jordan) and another with our district leader (Elder Deem from North Dakota). Both were great! I had a lot fun with both of them and we got to be really close to the beach but we're not really allowed because the girls aren't dressed modestly. Also last week we ate dinner at a members house, his name is Bro. Tuitama and he's a great guy! And afterwards he had a fire pit their and we roasted marshmellows and hot dogs, it was awesome and Elder Hurst got to burn his old pants to signify his year and a half being on a mission. So what we do in the field is we burn different sets of clothing signifying how long we've out on a mission. So if we've been out 6 months we burn a pair of socks, a year we burn a shirt, a year and half slacks, and for two years a suit. It's pretty cool and I can't wait to burn some socks in about 6 months! We've continued to meet with a lot of Less Actives yesterday Amador and John (two of our investigators) both came to church!!! It was great Amador sat with us while John sat outside because he felt that it was disrespectful for him to go into the chapel wearing shorts and a sweatshirt. After Sacrament meeting John left so he could find some food because he was starving. And Amador stayed for the second hour and then he left. I feel that Amador is ready to be baptized but it's just that he's still skeptical about the church because he'd been in some anti, but if he doesn't progress this week and he doesn't come to church we might be dropping him. So far it's been a great three weeks here in the field and I've learned a lot during my time here! The people are great and the weather is great too!
I hope everything's going good back home and I love you all!
