Well, Hello Everyone,
This has been an interesting week. It is truly a blessing to be able to serve up here. There are a lot of great people. I live with members. They are the best and are super cool people. But last Saturday they had a water pipe go out on there property and they were out of town. So we shut off the water and waited for them to come home on Sunday for a plan of action to fix the water. So the past couple of hours we have been helping them fix their water line so that we will be able to get some water so we can shower with and to get living to back to the American that we are all so use to living. But you could say that we got it all Jerry rigged so that it will work. But i never thought that i would have to worry about not having water in Sacramento on my mission. But I guess you should never say, "never."
But then on Saturday we did about 8 hours of service up in Coloma National Park weed-wacking the weeds so that the park would look a lot nicer for when tourists would come to see the sights. You will not believe how many tourists that there are up here. It is almost as bad as Yellowstone but it really is not all that bad. I can't blame them for wanting to come and see this country because it is sure beautiful. Then after we had finished that service we went and did some yard work for an investigator. It was a lot of fun to be able to do so much service.
Then on Friday we go and volunteer at this place called the Upper Room where homeless people come to get food. We just bring them their food so that they can eat it. It is really fun to talk to those people. A lot of them have a really sad story on why they ended up on the street but they don't really have any desire to change that so it really is hard to feel sympathetic about it because they just kind of go from one hand-out to an other. But it is super fun to get to know them.
Then we had a lesson with an investigator. He is really a cool guy. He is very skilled at guitar, welding, and a lot of cool things. At the last lesson we invited him to be baptized and he said
that he would if he came to know that these things are true. Really cool all he needs to do is to pray with real intent then he will for sure be ready.
Then we went on a road trip and were able to go to Nashville. Just kidding there is just this really old building that has Nashville on it. There is a lot of really cool old things out here.
But I hope that all of you have a great week and this email finds you well!!
