Hola buenos días muchachos!!!

Hey what's up homies… I'm living in the California Heat for sure and it's definitely a blessing we have a car to blast the cold air in or else me and my companion would die. It's been a weird week to say the least, but I always love what California has to offer. Me and my companion have been going to Dutch bros a lot to get Frosties to cool down, but we realized that we were going to go broke if we kept that up so…. yeah

Happy Father's Day!!! It's 2 days late but …. I'm so appreciative of my dad and all that he does for me and always there when I need him. I'm grateful for everyone who has supported me while on my mission and I love each and every one of you. On Sunday at the church the men got to have a bunch at church, and we got Lucky in getting the leftovers which was well needed but amazing to appreciate all the things men do.

I love doing the Lord's will and have seen so many blessings from it!!!

☆ EMMA IS ON DATE FOR BAPTISM!!! She will get baptized on July 8th so if you want to watch it, we will have a zoom link! We got to see her at church, and she brought a nonmember friend with her, and she even went to one of the lessons where we taught the plan of Salvation which was so amazing. She had so many good questions and we could feel the spirit testify that it was true and made sense!!!
☆ Our zone put 10 people on date for baptism in just 1 week!! 10 second Miracle videos every day.
☆ We had so many spiritual lessons and got 5 return appointments!!!
☆ Found Connie in the middle of nowhere and she had met the missionaries before, so we went to go knock and she opened the door and said, " Not even a minute ago I was just thinking about you ". That was crazy but we talked and shared a video with her, and it was exactly what she needed, and she started to feel the spirit from us, and she told us to come back again!!!!

Interesting Things That Happened:
○ Made lemonade from actual lemons that were on a tree!! Had to squeeze all the Juice out while using an ancient tool … I need to do more arm days.
○ Downloaded an app called "White page" and felt like I was the FBI because we can search people's names and find members by knowing where they move to and their new phone number along with their email address…. Don't even know how I can have this app but It's approved ... and let's just say we found a lot of people ….
○ Got like 10 bug bites on my shoulder and the same on the other …. I hate mosquitos so much!!!! Now I look like I have chickenpox because I may have itched them too much lol.
○ Finally figured out what a "Delta Breeze" is. I guess it's an Elk Grove thing and it means you get to always have a breeze in the summer and it's super nice!!!
○ Got to pick cherries off of a few trees by using a claw. Then we had to give out social media cards and we have a bowl filled with those now!
○ Me and my companion committed to not eating otter pops anymore, because we want to cut out sugar. We decided to take the rest of the box and give it to some kids in front of our apartment and they just fought over them …. so, me and my companion slowly walked away and went back inside…. Then they knocked on the door to say Thanks and had me "Dabb them up" as they left …it was interesting alright.
○ Saw two peacocks just roaming around a farm and they were huge!!! I tried chasing one, but it went on the roof … also saw a monkey bush in someone's yard that was cool.

Spiritual thought: Book of Mormon
I FINISHED THE BOOK OF MORMON for the 2nd time!!! I was able to finish it today and just realized how important the Book of Mormon is in my life. We were teaching Emma about the plan of salvation(happiness) just with the Book of Mormon and what happened before, now, and after this life that God has in store for us. She felt like the plan of salvation was familiar to her and knew that it was God's plan for her and that was the spirit testifying to her yall!!!! I know with all my heart that the Book of Mormon teaches us about our Heavenly Father and how to return to live with him again. I know that Jospeh Smith was a prophet and didn't make any of this up. It is by the Holy Ghost that I know these things are true and I have prayed about it and felt a deep love for God's plan and love for me and it shows through the Book of Mormon. It has taught me Jesus Christ and the grace he gives me to be able to know that he cared and loved me.

I love this quote from Elder Tad Callister
"Together with the Bible, the Book of Mormon is an indispensable witness of the doctrines of Christ and His divinity."

I know that you could know it's truth by praying, reading, and pondering on the messages it has for you specifically. GOD LOVES YOU!!! If you need anything prayers let me know

Scripture: Moroni 10:32
32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.

● - me and my companion talking about using my epi pen in an emergency situation. " I'll stab you with no hesitation" my companion "Wait you got to give me a 5 second grace period" Me " You'll die! I won't even give you a 3 second grace period" "oh great…Thanks a lot…." me.
