Gold Strike

This week has definitely been a week to remember. Wednesday was a solid day, we met with Rob in the morning, and those lessons are always entertaining. He is a returning Less-Active, and he is just a lot of fun to be around. It can be hard sometime, he gets sidetracked easily, we just know really quick if the lesson is interesting or not. Then after that we met with Sister Berry who is still staying active. (which is good) The cool part about Wednesday was that we were able to teach quite a few people we had never met before just on the street. One of which wanted to know if we do house blessings. Her catholic friends never showed up so she resorted to us. I have never run into that before, but I think we gave her a little more than she necessarily wanted. We talked about our beliefs about priesthood and gave her a Book of Mormon. She didn't want us to come back, but she has a Book of Mormon, so it's only a matter of time. Then on Thursday I went on an exchange with Elder Watts. This is my Third exchange with him, except my first two were when we were in Thousand Oaks. It was a great exchange. We did a church tour with Hope, and her two kids came as well. We brought along the Elders quorom president and he was very helpful in explaining everything in the church. That was actually my first church tour ever, they all said they really loved it. They didn't end up coming to church on Sunday, but soon. . .Speaking of church we had an incredible miracle on Sunday. Marcia came to church. We met her for the first time at church on Sunday, and a member in Thousand Oaks introduced her to the church a while ago and she absolutely loves it. She has gone to other wards a couple of times I guess, but has now found her way to our ward where she belongs. She already has a testimony of the Book of Mormon and instantly made friends with many of the sisters in our ward. We will meet with her for the first time this Tuesday at the Bishop's house and set her with a baptismal date. It has just been a huge blessing and she has truly been prepared. We will learn her whole story on Tuesday I'm sure, and little does she know that her story is only just beginning. So yes, we had a golden investigator fall into our lap on Sunday. Also something to note. The sisters in our district, Sister Moure and Sister Reneer have a baptism on Friday. I am the one that does the interview, and all the paper work for that, and this is my first one. It is going to be a little stressful, but I am excited.
I hope everything is going well with all of you and I am grateful for all of your prayers. Keep working hard and having fun!
Elder Hamson
