In Fresno, We Teach the Gospel in Many Languages!

We met the coolest family. Mele, one of the investigators we have, has a date to be baptized.  She lives with her brother, who is super Catholic.  We helped him take in some groceries and we ended up talking to him for a bit. He thought we were cool guys and ended up inviting us to dinner later that night. We really got to know that family. They are super cool. We invited them to go on a church tour, where we talk about the Sacrament and about a few pictures in the church and then we finish by talking about Joseph Smith and baptism. It is super cool. They really liked it. They are still our good friends and invited us to dinner again, right during the Stanford/Oregon game, so it was really distracting. But we ate dinner with the wife in the other room. She is interested in what we have to share so that is really cool.

This week we have also ran into the Tongan boys all over the place. It is cool to be able to get to know them so well. I can tell that I am an example to them and that is accomplishing one of my goals of being on a mission.

On Monday, I also taught in Chinese. I taught with a translator. It was super weird, but kinda fun. One of our members married a Chinese lady, the funny thing is, he does not speak Chinese and she speaks very basic English. So that is weird. We are going to set a baptism date with her tonight.

Well sorry I do not have much time today. Today I am at a zone activity. I get to play basketball again!!! This week has been one of the best ones so far. We have been involved in lots of teaching.
