Transfers, a New Companion and Teaching the Hmong to Ride the Bus

July 18: Transfers were today! Elder Ellestad (who was in the MTC with me) and I are companions! We are super excited! We are the only set of Hmong Elders in Fresno! This means we have a lot of people we are teaching and a HUGE area! We are super excited though! We are now on a late schedule so our curfew is later at night so we can do more teaching. Also, today, we were able to go give a blessing to a pregnant member of our ward. She had the baby a few hours later! Super cool!

July 19: Today we had a TON of teaching appointments! It was super fun though! Having the number of people to teach basically double is super sweet; it just means you have a lot more work to do!

July 20: Today was the same as yesterday. 

July 21: This week has been crazy! We have had so many lessons it feels like a month has gone by! We have also gotten 7 member referrals to go teach people so far, this week. It is crazy how much the Lord blesses your area when you work with the members of the ward you are serving in!

July 22: Today there was a big sewing activity at church to make blankets for local children's Hospitals and stuff. It was super fun. We also helped a guy push his car off the road after several hoses in his engine blew up from over-heating - struggles of triple digit temperatures. 

July 23: Today we rode the bus to take three old Hmong women who can't drive to church. There are a lot more that want to come and the end goal is to teach these people how to ride the bus so they can take people to church in the future. It seems to be working super good so far! The work is going awesome here in Pioneer Park!!
