Week 6 Sept 19, 2016

Hey guys! Transfers just came and I'm staying in El Monte with my companion but, were moving districts. Which is weird because we were the center of the district, but it's cool. Plus the area right next to ours is being cut in half so they won't need their car anymore and it will come right to us. No more bikes! It's a possibility that I prayed about it. Bikes are cool but it's hard being late to appointments because people live so far away, and riding a bike while someone is driving a car right past you at full speeds... It's scary. They come so close you and it doesn't make sense how they can get so close without touching us. 
Last week we didn't have that many members have us over for dinner but this week everyday was filled. A true blessing, plus everyone goes all out for the missionaries and gives desserts too, and extra food that is easy to cook by ourselves. People really do look after us here. Whether or not they're members.  People respect us here and what we're doing, maybe not enough to hear our message but enough to say that it's cool to see such young people do something that isn't for themselves.
Tomorrow is my two month mark, and it's difficult to believe that it has come by so fast. It doesn't feel like it's been two months.  It's a weird feeling, where has all the time gone, but then again it is a true blessing that I'm enjoying my mission and having fun at the same time.
