February 6, 2017

Hello everyone,

This week flew by. I don't know where all the time is going it seems like just yesterday I was having Thanksgiving and thinking in just one month I will be able to Skype home. Now we are coming up on General Conference in just a few short months.

This week has been full of meeting down at the mission office. There has been a lot of driving but thankfully the weather has been fair and there has been nothing to extreme when it comes to the weather. We have seen some places that have flooded a little bit because of all the rain but this area needs it. And I am making sure that I am staying dry and safe when biking in this weather so you don't have to worry about that at all.

This week we started to teach this lady by the name of Josephine. She is a great lady. She has been looking for the true church for a while now. She has tried to see if a lot of churches are true from Jehovah Witnesses to Catholic. She has shown some really strong interest in our church and we have not been teaching her for very long but I am way excited to see where this goes. She really already has a strong testimony of what we already believe just the big thing now is to get her a testimony of the Book of Mormon. Once she gets that there will be no stopping her. Then she has worked on Sunday's but she said that she will come to church this following Sunday witch we are super excited about.

Then we have been teaching a boy by the name of Joseph. He is in a part member family and it great to work with him because he already has a foundation to gain a testimony of the church but the challenge has been trying to get his mom back to church so that he does not get baptized and become less active. As missionaries it is not a good thing to baptize kids into a less active family because they then become less active by default. Kind of sad but it happens more then you would think. So hopefully we can get them both to coming to church and becoming active again.

Other then stressing out about training a new missionary it the same old here in Sacramento. If you have any questions for me feel free to ask me and I will try to answer them.

I hope you all have a great week!

Elder Berry
