for service this week, we set up the Loveman's patio set. As it starts to cool down in the morning we do personal study out here. so yeah the service was for the benefit of us too but don't judge :)
●First of all, shoutout to my Cougars! Brother Loveland told me the score Saturday night :) #perksoflivingwithamember. I'm sure Uncle Jason is so proud.
●For our Zone Training this week, we had one training all about the song "Brightly Beams our Fathers Mercy" and as you know this is my favorite hymn. About 2 weeks ago—prior to this zone training, while I was on an exchange with our DL Elder Monreal, I explained to him about the meaning of the song like my mom and Grandpa Ross had taught me. So after the training he said "Elder Faldmo already gave me that training 2 weeks ago on exchanges."
●Miracle this week: Rosa Flores (investigator) got a job and is working now to make her own income because her boyfriend won't marry her. After she gets a sufficient amount to provide for she and her 3 kids, she will kick him out unless he changes. She set a goal for December to be baptized. Her boyfriend is the one that stayed in the bathroom the whole lesson one time when we were there.
●Missionary Shopping Motto: if it's not GreatValue, don't buy it.
●Thursday was the best day this week for Elder Rivas and I. We met TEN new investigators and had 4 lessons with a member. One was a family of 8. We had an awesome lesson with them and a couple that just got sealed in the temple was with us. They shared how the gospel has blessed their family.
●Well, I blinked and I have been out for 1 month. I am starting to get a hang of the area and I know where almost all of the streets are now. I love it here and I love the people. Thank you so much for all of your emails, letters, and packages. I love them so much!

Meet the Saballos Family. They are hilarious. they are the type of people that when they are giving a talk in church last week and would sometimes say in english "know what im sayin?"
these are the El Rancho ward's missionaries with Able (right of Elder Rivas) who just got back a couple months ago from his mission in Brazil and is leaving this thursday for BYU-I. He has been awesome coming out with us a few times a week. He is amazing!
