Thank you all for your birthday wishes! It really meant a lot. It was a good week! We were able to teach quite a few investigators and they are all doing pretty well. Charles is still planning on being baptized on the 29th of November. He understands everything that we are teaching him and he knows it's true.
Charles is a really cool guy. He has had a pretty hard life. He grew up in California with his parents who adopted him. He is a little slow mentally so it has been hard providing for him self. He loves playing the guitar and creating his own music. He is always super positive and very nice. He is very excited to join the church. He comes from a Catholic background so he understands quite a bit of our doctrine pretty well and the new stuff he is picking up quickly. We are all very excited for him.
The ward is pretty awesome! One of the members that we have been able to spend some with is really cool. His name is Caesar Valdez. He is a recent convert of a couple of years. He was a Marine sniper for 20 years and he has some crazy stories. He has seen some crazy stuff. He is also very decorated. He also was one of the people who helped train the group that the American Sniper guy was in. Anyway he is really awesome! He loves the missionaries a lot. He feeds us every Sunday and it is great. He also got me a tie for my birthday! He is an awesome guy.
This past week we had interviews with President Cooke. It was great the theme of his interviews was be positive. It was really good. During the interview I told him about our infested apartment and he said he would make something happen. So hopefully we will get to move apartments.
Thank you everyone for your emails, it always makes my week go by better. Take care.
