December 14, 2015 - Solvang Ward

Hey All!

So, this week has been pretty meh. But that's okay! We are still seeing a lot of work happening, still working hard, and still having people progress towards making those sacred covenants with our Heavenly Father!

So, our investigators are seriously doing AWESOME! We saw Johnathan (Baptism on the 26th) on Tuesday and shared the Plan of Salvation with him. We have only been able to seem him twice in two weeks, so we need to start seeing him more often if he is going to be baptized on the 26th! He is really desirous to become closer to Christ though, so we will be trying to see him every chance that we have! Christie (Feb 10th) is doing well too! She like absorbs all that she reads, and tells us perfectly what she has read since our last lesson! She quit cigarettes on Friday, and she is just going strong and trying to progress towards baptism! She said she knows that this Church is true, she just needs to actually put it into action! Super cool to see someone know what they need to do, and to see them being willing to actually do it! Dania went into ghost mode this week. She went to Santa Monica, so we will have to set her date back a little bit. 

We did have four investigators at Sacrament Meeting yesterday! It was awesome, and highlighted by Rick and Vanessa! They are super awesome, and going through a lot! They have found comfort in the church and in the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and it has been amazing to see them progress closer and closer to baptism. They are praying for a baptismal date, and will let us know by the end of this week. It's a big step, because they also have to figure a lot of things out, and setting a baptismal date for them will also be setting a date to get married! Super exciting times :) 

Service? We do a ton of things. We have been helping a member renovate his house, helping people decorate for Christmas, and this week we are going to be going to the Catholic Mission to do some Christmas thing. Not sure what, but it will be a great experience! 

Glad to hear everything is going so well at home! I am not sure what the family's Skype is that we are going to on Christmas, but I will give them your name thing tonight! I did not get a sweater or coat yet, I might end up getting something today if I have time. Contact paper is some roll of clear paper stuff that basically laminates something without actually having to use a laminate machine thing. 

The Branch sounds interesting! And I am sure excited for Christmas time! Things are just going really well, and we have Zone Conference this week!!! Always an exciting time, and just really gearing up to finish the transfer strong!

Oh yeah, Dad I bought some pastry thing. I will send you a picture, but IT IS SO GOOD! I think I put maybe 20 bucks on the card on Monday. I will let you know if I buy a sweater next week!

I love you all, thanks for everything and thanks for keeping me in your prayers :) Merry Christmas!
