Alan Leads Them Astray!

This week was exciting, we started off with a multi-zone hike. President Felix took us all on a hike and had us blind folded and our companions had to guide us down the trail. It was fun and we would switch off who was blind folded and whatnot. While this was going on Sister Felilx went around trying to lead us off the path. I may or may not have listened and started walking into the bushes. I guess I know who not to listen too! Then we did one where President had me be the one to try and lead one of the missionaries astray. I had fun and had Elder Gray going the wrong way for a while before he figured out he probably shouldn't listen to me. It was a fun hike, and I got to see some good missionary friends. Daniel is doing well and he is set to be baptized on June 27. He has been taught for almost two years and he has made some big steps forward in the last couple of weeks. Saturday night we all knelt down and he prayed to know if this is what God wants him to do, and he felt a burden was lifted and he just felt good. He is still a little nervous about the whole thing, but is moving forward with faith. His dad is cool with it, but his mom is a devout catholic, and he isn't sure how she would react. Parents seem to be the most common problem in the YSA ward. There is a lot of other good things going on, and it always seems there are things coming up with either the people we are working with or the missionaries in the Zone. One of the bad ones was our investigator Samantha dropped us over text, because she is too busy. On a better note 2 of the investigators in the Spanish branch wanted to get baptized kind of last minute, and we were scrambling to get one of them interviewed by someone who speaks Spanish. Elder Hunt did the other interview and he pretended like he had problems with question 4, turns out it was all planned out by the Spanish Elders and Elder Hunt was grumpy about that. It was good that the baptism went well. Thank you all for the support, transfers are next week so I'll let you know if anything crazy happens. Hopefully I just keep living the dream here in Simi.
