August 1: Today we had exchanges! It was super fun! It is always super fun to go into English areas! Especially when the neighbor of the people you are talking to threatened the Elders with a shotgun last time! hahaha
August 2: Today we made cookies! We then brought them to one of our investigators who recently got married! She is going to be baptized soon, hopefully!
August 3: Had lunch with a super cool Samoan member today. His wife is Hmong so he is still in our ward. He is so cool!
August 4: We were driving to an investigators house and saw a bunch of cops so we figured we would go street contacting. Turns out there had been a drive by shooting within the last hour or so! Sweet! Also gave a referral to the English Elders of someone who said they wanted to get baptized. Pretty cool. Also got to see a real CSI truck for the first time! (It came to check out the shooting) Pretty cool!
August 5: Today was HMONG GATHERING!! There were some SWEET Hmong dances. The longest one was about a half-hour and depicted the Hmong people in Laos and their life before the war. It then went into the war and their exile to America. They then met some Mormon Elders, joined the church, and went to the Temple! Super cool!
August 6: Today we met a bunch of people at church from other parts of California who came down for the Hmong Gathering! Super cool. Also had 5 investigators at church so it was pretty cool to see all of them! The Lord is definitely pushing his work forward in the CFM! It is awesome to see it happen!
