July 4, 2016

Hello everybody! Happy 4th of July! Has this week been amazing or what!? To start off, we met Randy, and helped him fix up his house and teach him the restoration! He's super cool, and the story of how we met him was even cooler. We received this referral for a part-member family, but the address we got was for the trailer park where they lived without the trailer number. It was in these perilous circumstances that Elder Winsor and I decided to pray that we would be guided to the right trailer. We felt drawn to 3 different trailers, so we decided to try them all. As we were going up to the 3rd one (the first 2 were unsuccessful)that was their house. we knocked on the door and talked to the lady that answered, she said she wasn't interested, but her boyfriend (Randy) Would be. He's super awesome and he hasn't been wearing a shirt the 6 or 7 times I've seen him. They just moved here from Sacramento where they had been living out the back of their van. They were a lot more awesome to meet than the referral turned out to be. Randy is super open and humble I love it!
a guy drove up and started working on the trailer, and lo and behold, he was the owner of the entire trailer park! And he knew exactly where they lived! Talk about a miracle! we went up to the trailer, but no one was home. We felt that we should knock on their neighbor's door to see if

The other miracle we had this week was in Hawthorne. We have an investigator there who is super golden. Her name is Lizzy, she lives with her grandparents who are less active. it's a struggle to teach her because Hawthorne is an hour drive away, and so we can only go there once a week. For whatever reason her grandma is a little reluctant to let her get baptized even though Lizzie really wants to. We saw her Friday, and we committed her to fast and pray on Sunday that her Grandma's heart will be softened. Lizzy is the kind of investigator that every missionary in the world prays for. I'm so lucky to have gotten the chance to meet her and be part of her conversion.

A little bit about Hawthorne, it's the worlds biggest arms depot, and so they have a lot of dissembled tanks, helicopters and missiles.
