Crazy week coming up, going to a new area and I'm excited for it. my new area is near Sacramento and its called El Grove with my new companion Elder Rivera. Our mission has been hitting our goals 4 out of the last 5 months and it feels great. It's kinda tough leaving after such a long time of being here but it has to happen.

This week was great, this coming week looks like we will have some rain which means muddy shoes in the area im serving right now, it would be the first week of rain on my mission so far. I have had about 5 days total of rain so far. This week we found a couple of people but they spoke english and they are going to be taught by the english elders but they are an awesome family and have family in Utah that are members too. I hope you all have a good time at the Halloween activity this weekend. And my investigators from my old area came to church this week!

This week we met a lot of people, and it was a very fun experience. We had a primary program on Sunday and it was great, those kids are great and they are going to be great leaders in the future. It has gotten a little bit colder here but it was only for a couple days and now its pretty much nice weather in the 80's or so. Next Friday we have a Halloween party at our ward. that should be fun. we did not have a chance to do service this week but hopefully the next.

This week was good, we had General Conference and I think this was the time that I focused the most, but it was very easy with the talks that they gave this conference, they were all amazing. When we went on exchanges this week we were knocking doors and we got invited in to one door, it happened that one of their kids was baptized a year ago and it was a Hmong family and we are spanish missionaries. We sat there and when they came in we had to explain that we werent the Hmong missionaries but thanked them for inviting us in to their house. It gave us a pretty good laugh. And I know if we are able to study the conference talks that we will be truly blessed and guided.

My new companion Elder Bawden

Got to ride on my bike for 3 days this week because we had to save miles to make it under for the month. It was very fun, and we found a family who's son is a member and we helped them with their roof, they were replacing everything and we helped them take out the nails and prepare it for them to finish it and put the shingles on. Conference is coming up and the week is getting very busy trying to invite people to it and to come watch it with us. A lot of people are interested in it and are willing to come listen to it. Hopefully we can get a lot of people to it and they can receive an answer to their prayers. this week we had an interview with our mission president and had a language conference were we learned how to interact with people who do not understand English.
