Hi everyone.

This week wasn’t too eventful. We had a lot of meetings, so I was all over the mission. We had to go to Concord for a medical thing on Tuesday, so it was weird to be back there again, and on Thursday we had a follow-up training meeting for Elder Castillo in Oakland. Also, we went on exchanges with the Filipino Elders on Wednesday.

I wish I had more to report on, but I don’t really. Pamela is doing alright. Still progressing. She had trouble with a bit of depression this week, so we went by to give her a blessing and talk with her about how the Lord strengthens us in times of trial.

We also added a new investigator named Charles. He’s a behavioral health specialist and is super cool. Really nice, quiet guy. He has a lot of questions and is very open to meeting with us. It was great to add a new investigator this week, especially since it’s been weeks since we have added anyone.

We got transfer calls last week as well. No news to share. I’m staying here for a fifth transfer, which is the longest most missionaries speaking English stay in any area in this mission. So, in October, I will probably be shipped off elsewhere.

Being on exchanges with the Filipinos this week was really good. I always enjoy working with Elder Perandos because he’s one of the goofiest missionaries I’ve met. He’s a funny guy. While on exchanges, we went up to the city to work (because their area covers the entire mission). It was really odd to be back in the city again. Walking up and down city streets and contacting names there threw me back to my days in the Golden Gate Ward. It was kinda neat to be back in the city again.

I wish I had more to write about this week, but I really don’t. So, I’ll just leave you with the only pictures I took this week (sorry Mom). A Tongan member sent us home with two big bags of food this week:

Dinner at the apartment.

Tongan food…

Know that I love you all! Have a great week!
