this week has been off the wall!

so this week has been super fun! we spent a lot of time with our investigator Rick. he is a super awesome guy! i went over with Elder Law on Wednesday, and Rick connected with him very well. it was a cool experience to ​​​​​​​​get to know Rick better. than on Saturday there was a baptism and we asked Rick to come and give us a ride. well he showed up to give us a ride, but he had slept in and was in his PJs! so he gave us a ride to the baptism and was planning to wait in his car. we assured him that it would be ok for him to come in. so he came in and sat at the back with me. he loved it! during the service he began praying to God in gratitude. after he took us out to eat, and than back to his home to help him out with some stuff. we set up his internet, a royal pain! we had to call customer support after hours of banging our heads against the wall! that was finally set up. that we set up his smart TV. that was a lot easier. so finally at 4:45 he started taking us home, but than remembered something that he wanted to buy at the store for us! so he took us to Ross and bought a cushion for our bike! so we called dinner and asked if we could bring Rick. they graciously agreed and Rick came to dinner, than on the way home we got a call from the Sister missionaries, they needed a blessing. Sister Allred had some intense migraines. so Rick took us over to there apartment and we gave them a blessing. then he took us home after. we had spent from 9:30-9:00 with Rick. it was intense!
we also had a lesson with Anita this week. she told us that she feels that she is going to Hell. with the sharing of scriptures and bearing of testimony she has come to belive that she can make it to heaven! she is such fun to be around! we call her mamanita! she is so great!
we also had a lesson with miguel. we taught the Word of Wisdom. he commited to live it! after we got home he called and asked if we would come back. he just loves having us around a ton! so cool!
other than that we have just been doing a lot of finding!
love you all!

ok so this is the week that makes a year. this thursday will be exactly one year for me. that is crazy. this week has been awesome!
monday: just the normal stuff i promise!
Tuesday: we had district meeting. than after that i got super sick! we ended up being laid up for the rest of the day. i felt so bad!
Wednesday: we did squash for friends. than we did some service for a lady named Pat. she is super nice. we taught Miguel today and Anita. Anita is on fire! she is doing so well.
Thursday: we saw kieron today and passed him off to the YSA elders. we also went by to see Lon on our regular visit. and than we finished our night by seeing the Jasper family.
Friday: we weekly planned today. than we saw Brian, sister Calvin, Miguel, and Anita.
Saturday:  true day of service. at 10 we replaced Anita's Transimssion Speed Sensor. than at 1 we helped someone move in. than at 2:30 we helped the lacombs move furniture. in the evening we saw the rodriguez family. they fed us some super good mexican food. nothing like the stuff back at home. it is so fun being immersed in so many different cultures. i have learned how to be "proper" in so many fun ways! like using tortillas for utensils. its really fun. dont tell mom. all the hard work she has done to make me civilized is crashing down. when we woud go to a samoan house before in Barstow almost everything is finger food! and it is polite to eat until you can no longer eat. than eat a little more. if you do not they are offended and you are not a true friend.
sunday: Rick came to church! woohoo that was so cool!  than we studied and i took a quick nap. my usual all day headache was present due to fast sunday. this continued until 9:30 that night when i fell asleep.
