Back to school, huh?! I can definitely wait for that one. This last week has been great. We had a half mission conference where President Bubert went over one more time all of those trainings that we just received and clarified a few of the points there as well. Not much to report, time just flew by so quick this last week that I feel like I just blinked. It's awesome that everyone was able to go down to see the wedding, and I'm stoked to hear that you're planning on using Preach My Gospel in FHE.

This week has been so awesome. We are on our last week of the training so we are seeing a huge difference in our teaching than before and seeing the Lord start to pour out His blessings upon us for our obedience. How is everything going for you all? I found out the other day that after years of making fun of the Georgian accent when I hear people do it now, I just start twangin' with 'em. Elder Soto told me and I didn't believe him at first, but wow! Well we've been having a great time and working hard this last week trying to find some new people to teach. We had such an amazing Family Home Evening with the Rodriguez and Hurtado families. They are so awesome. We have been able to feel the spirit really strong and give us a little extra fire for the week. I didn't really realize how much I was missing out on by not having FHE before. I love you all and hope that you all keep being awesome!
P.S. Elder Rubert could use some fun pics of what you've been doin'!

This couple weeks have been a spiritual feast as we have been instructed by our mission leaders about the new curriculum from the mission department. I love to see the work of the Lord actively moving and it gives me increased faith and a strengthened testimony of whose work this is. Last night I had a wonderful opportunity to participate in a Family Home Evening with the Rodriguez and Hurtado families, and towards the end one of our investigators that we have been teaching named Jazmin came with 4 of her 8 kids. I loved to see the lord working through his representatives (Rodriguez y Hurtado families) to express his love for his children. They went and bore testimony of the Savior and the spirit guided them to say what they needed to. This gospel is so true and I'm happy also to hear that you all had a blast visiting with Grandma Corbett this last weekend.
I love you all so much,

This has been an amazing week here in Hawaiian Gardens, California. This last week we found out that this transfer we are going to start having two zone meetings and a district meeting every week for this transfer to receive some training directly from the missionary department. We had our first one yesterday and it went so amazing. I am excited to see more and more how the Lord is working through His chosen servants to guide His work. How is everyone else doing? Have you heard anything about Drew? Every time that I speak to someone from Guatemala I think about how he's doing. But the work is going great and we are working, which makes time go even faster than it already does, and starting to see the evidence of our labors.
Love you all,
