This week here in Temecula was a little better! We picked up 2 new investigators! :D We brought Hermano Zapot to a lesson with Judy and it turns out that he actually knows her! Her and her family used to live right next to them! He tells us that he wants to bring his wife over there and invite them to church and become better friends with them to help them come closer to baptism. Again, the Zapots are an awesome family!
We also taught this guy named Jared. He's about 14 and he speaks no English whatsoever, which was different haha normally all the teenagers speak English, but this guy doesn't. But he seems very interested and wants to come to church! So we're praying for success with him :)
Yesterday at church we had our combined lesson in the 3rd hour on Member Missionary Work, and our Ward Mission Leader taught the lesson. It was really a great lesson! He reminded us all of our duties as members of the church to share the gospel, and helped the members to think of how to strengthen their desire to share the gospel. It was a great lesson! And he and our Branch President want us to go the homes of the members and basically share this message with them again, but shorter and from us.
The Branch is also starting a 28 day fast. It's where members will sign up on a calendar to fast for 1 day, and then the next another member or family will fast, and it just continues down the line so that it's a continuous fast for 28 days. They've done this in the past before, and it worked really well for increasing missionary work. :)
On Monday, I used some of my birthday money and bought a super cool Batman watch and T-shirt!
Also, next Monday is labor day, so next week our P-Day will be on Tuesday instead.
Please continue to write and email when you can! I love hearing from you all!
With much love,
Elder Patrick Wockenfuss
