Hola Familia,

Como les va? Same old same old. It’s nothing but white people here in Temecula! Sure there are Latinos but it's like an Easter egg hunt, and even when you find an egg, a lot of the times there's no candy inside. One Elder said it’s like finding hay in the needle stack. It is definitely hard to find new people but we're working hard.

We have 3 investigators that should be getting baptized here in the next couple of weeks! We're really excited. We also helped confirm Erik Zapot who was baptized last Wednesday, to receive the Holy Ghost. It was really cool, you could definitely feel the spirit there and it was a really cool experience to help confirm someone. He was a child of record baptism so in terms of numbers for the mission it doesn't count because he's 8 and both of his Parents were members. Still we helped them get back to church and become active again, so that's the important thing.  I'm super grateful to have the investigators that we do have.

A lot of times missionaries have a hard time finding solid people to teach. Anyways we are doing great up here and the members love us.  Me and my new companion Elder Ellsworth are getting along great and we work really good together. I hope that everyone back home is trying to do their part to help the missionaries. They work hard and it's discouraging at times when you don't get too many new investigators or investigators at all. Just keep doing your best and the Savior will make up the rest.

I know that the church is true! Read the Book of Mormon and find out for yourself if it’s true! Missionary work is so rewarding. When you get to see the blessings that people see in their lives it’s incredible.

A family that we contacted is getting baptized this Weekend, they were English but we contacted them and referred them to English Elders who now have them on date to be baptized this weekend. They told the missionaries that their lives have been changed dramatically just from talking to a bunch of 20 year old kids about their Savior, Jesus Christ. There are blessings from living the Gospel and especially in sharing it as well. I hope that you guys have a great week and pueden seguir adelante!

Elder Emerick
