Hello All! This week was pretty great. We talked to a lot of awesome people and got chased off of another churches property, so that was fun. Long story short we were walking down the street and two gentlemen called us over and we started teaching them and then this huge bulky guy runs out of the front doors to the building and starts yelling, we don't need any cults standing on our holy ground! So we left obviously and looked back and realized it was a street church...whoops. It was kind of funny though so I wasn't bothered.
Funny thing was that later that night we went to McDonalds for dinner and found one of the gentleman there and finished talking to him, crazy world huh? Mitchell has been coming out with us a lot lately. He is such an awesome guy and he has such a strong spirit about him.
The rest of the week was pretty normal, we did a lot of service on Saturday like normal and we're helping a member move all day today.
Yesterday was amazing though, we were searching for a young man named Eric and couldn't find his house and as we were walking back to the car we met a woman on her doorstep and she invited us up to teach her.
We gave her a quick lesson and asked her if she believed what we were telling her and she said absolutely and then we asked her if she would be baptized as she continued to learn more and she said absolutely again. First transfer and I'm already getting people like this, I'm praying it stays like this.
Elder Freitas is being transferred to an area called Ottawa and I'm staying here. I'll tell you about the new companion I'll be receiving, next week. It's harder than I thought to think that I'll be making all these friends and then leaving them two months later. I'm definitely going to miss Elder Freitas but he lives two hours from home so it's not like I'll never see him again.
It's starting to get much colder, this week was in the 60's. In Cali it's still in the 90's so I'm definitely not used to it. But I can handle the cold so I'll be fine.
Other than that I have nothing else to really report other than the fact that I can tell that I'm slowly becoming a better teacher. I'm definitely not a good one yet but I'm working on it. Also, sorry to everyone who is getting this for the first time as it may seem confusing. This is just my general email.
Love you all!

P.S. I do have Facebook Messenger but I'm not allowed to use it to contact family or friends so they have asked me to tell everyone to not message me, I personally appreciate the messages but I'll be banned from using it if it gets too distracting.
