So first off mom to answer some of your questions from last
week.... I haven't really been able to try all the local food places because we are considered a suburb, so it's all pretty fast food style and lame. Ha-ha, but I will find some soon. Plus it isn't in San Fran so there aren't a lot of local vendors. It's literally just like Holladay, not really a ton of uniquely "local" does that make sense? But we do have good sushi sometimes and it has a lot of good shops, and old houses etc... No, I haven't gotten the CD's yet because we haven't gone up to the mission home yet, but thank you beforehand!!! :) We aren't doing any service with our zone because our zone is pretty spread out, plus Alameda is the farthest away and we are the only Elders that are in Alameda on bike. So someone would have to drive 20 minutes just to pick us up and it would kind of be a hassle to do that. So we just do our own service projects So, I sent some stuff home. Did you get it?? Was there anything broken in them? For the program I have it, I'll send that home too with the next letter that I am sending. The weather is really good it's been like 80's like the whole time I’ve been here! It hasn't rained but it has misted a few times. Let's see last week wasn't very eventful but there are two things that I do want to share!!! The first one: We went on exchanges with the ZL's and I went to San Leandro again!
It was nice to be able to go out and work again even if everyone was speaking Spanish the whole time. But we did go give a blessing to a lady, she had said her house was haunted and stuff was being moved around at night, and lights were turning on without her even being in the room. I didn't know what she was saying that until after we left, because she was speaking in Spanish the whole time. But it was still kind of scary! We also ran into the a vicious dog named Bobby, Bobby is a ferocious dog that bite Elder
Y’s (the ZL I was on exchanges with) shoe!!! It was seriously the buffest dog I had ever seen! But. Craziest thing is...Bobby is a Chihuahua! The Buffest Chihuahua EVER!!!! It literally looked as buff as a pit bull!!!! When we were leaving the yard I sprinted out of the yard and left Elder Y for Bobby!!! Sad right? Well it was fun, I wish stuff like that happened in Alameda!! :D
Umm concerning our investigators we have only met with G! He is chugging along and is reading the scriptures and everything!!! So he is really searching to know if the Book of Mormon is the word of God. B, the one who was supposed to be baptized on the 17th has fallen off the face of the planet. We can't get a hold of him, his phone is dead or lost because whenever we call it goes straight to voicemail.....We are praying and hoping to find some new investigators soon!!! –Elder Meier
