This week was great! I had a lot of exchanges and we were able to spend a lot of time in the area! We set a baptismal date with a new investigator named Farah! She is currently living with a member in our ward and expressed interest in the church. We went to teach her on Wednesday and shared the Restoration with her. She loved it and committed to baptism on the 19th of March. We're really excited about that! Also, I was able to go on an Exchange with Elder Hales this week! He is a Chinese Missionary from Tuscon, AZ. He is really funny and we had a great day together! We went contacting at UC Irvine! Which can be pretty nerve racking because College Kids aren't exactly the nicest bunch.. but we had a good idea to use a Religious survey to try and talk with people because what college kid is gonna say no to taking a survey? haha well, our plan worked and we ended up finding a heap of new investigators for us and for the Chinese Elders! It was awesome! And then, Elder Ashton and I were able to go to the temple with a member in our ward named Michael Vance! He wasn't very active in the church for a lot of years, but about a year ago, the missionaries found him and worked with him for a while. He decided to quit UFC fighting and riding his motorcycles and go on a mission. He has been doing a great job! He got his mission call to the Washington D.C. North Mission and he leaves on April 13th! We went and did an Endowment Session with him and it was awesome! He will be such a good missionary. And one of the missionaries who served here a year ago came back to go through the temple with us. His name is Elder Robison. He was companions with Elder Corcus and an Assistant when I got here. So it was cool to see him again!
