Happy New Year! This year is going to be a great one. 2014 was definitely one to remember since I was a missionary the whole time. This last week has been a solid week, but I am glad it's over. School is starting again today and the town is alive again. Elder Kanenwisher got to meet the ward for the first time yesterday and we have appointments now with all of the Recent converts in the ward(Helen, Bella, Jesse, Hana). I am excited to see them again and see where they are at. We also have 2 exchanges this week as well as MLC and a zone meeting, so this next week is going to be a fun one. Some Highlights of this last week though. We met with Mason again and he has been doing great reading from the scriptures and praying everyday, you can see the difference it makes in someones life when they do such a simple thing. He came to church for a little bit, but due to social anxiety left. It was a huge step for him to even come, so we are glad he is moving in the right direction. We did mostly finding this week and we met Jessica. We were trying by a Less-Actives house and they had moved, but Jessica had moved in and we talked for a little bit. We taught some simple truths about the restoration and testified about how it would bless her life. She then broke down into tears and told us that she had been going through a lot in her life right now and has been praying for help. She readily accepted a copy of the Book of Mormon and we have an appointment with her this Wednesday. It was a very neat experience, and I am glad we were in the right place at the right time. It is very humbling to be a missionary and I am so grateful for every minute of it so far.
As for today Elder Kanenwisher drive down to Ventura and stay the night with the assistants, because we have MLC early tomorrow morning. I am super excited, because I get to catch up with Elder Atkin, who I was companions with for 3 transfers, and Elder Lee who I know from home.
Thank you all for your support, you are the best.
