This week we found quite a few great people and taught many too. That was a miracle within itself considering how long it has been since we have found. We had a few family history lessons as well here and there, TONS of service for a variety of people. It was overall a great week. We worked on making the most of every minute more than the past and it paid off.
The firework show at Knotts Berry Farm was neat, the end looked like a volcano erupting; never seen that kind of effect before. Sister Montague got all of it but the end on her camera by recording, but I got some decent enough photos. We had to cram into a small part of the window, and we barely got a view of it since we had to stay in the apartment. It was fun either way! Fourth of July is fun in Buena park, not so many all around overall than in Norwalk last year.
We also spent a good part of the week teaching all our recent converts in the area and less actives as well, since we have so many we didn't have too much time to find new people so we are keeping busy
The miracle of the week was yesterday when we planned to visit Tanya and Stephanie (we met them first at park Anaheim while at service), and they pulled up just as we were knocking and we were able to talk to them for a while and were able to talk a little about God's plan for us. Tanya was in a coma at the hospital and was told she would never walk or talk again after that. To this day she walks and talks remarkably well for all that happened. The end result meant that she needed help, and that is when Stephanie came in to be a wonderful friend and help to her. Sometimes in life the things that happen to people may seem unfair, but because of that trial, we receive blessings, and even some of life's greatest friends as a result.
Sister Montague has to go to a funeral today for someone she knows in Huntington beach who she taught, so our P-day is cut short, but I am glad she is able to go. That also means this is short as well.
