Brody has had an ok week. He went out for pizza one night and the Ohio State vs Alabama game just happened to be on the TV. He was pretty happy about that. He was in fairly good spirits as we chatted today. Thanks for your support.
How did new years eve go back at home? It was super lame here, we had to be inside of our apartment by. We just sat around talking about how boring it is to sit in our apartment for new years eve. Elder Falslev asked if I wanted to watch a video and I told him no because I am so sick of the church videos and i could quote them all by now. So we just sat in the apartment and heard a couple of gun shots. speaking of gun shots...we were in Huron teaching a lady on her porch at an apartment complex. When we finished the lesson we headed back to coalinga and found out that a couple hours after we left in the same apartment complex there was a guy that got shot by 3 gangsters. the guy they shot was another one of our investigators friends. Our investigator used to be a gangster and did like 12 years in prison over the years. he always tells us gang stories. this past week we also found a new investigator that is kind of a goober. We left him 3 pamphlets and a Book of Mormon. The next time we went he had them all marked up and had so many questions about them. he studies the bible for 6 hours a day and annotates it. We went on a church tour with him and one of the ward members, it went really well. he has already read the pearl of great price in the past and believes it to be true. He said that he has a 7 year old daughter that turns 8 next month, when he said that Elder Falslev and I looked at eachother and smiled. We also taught a lesson to Gurvinder's brother Harvinder... and yes that is his real name. Gurvinder plans on leaving Coalinga soon and heading up north for college. Right now we don't have a lot of people to teach. Have a good week I love and miss you all!
