So Andrew who is Patricia's husband wanted to meet for a lesson. We did and taught the restoration to him. He says that he knows that the first vision happened and wants to learn more!
I went on exchanges with Elder Bartholomew. He has been very stressed with his companion, they teach together great but hopefully they can improve their relationship. No one was really home but we contacted a referral and had a lesson with Joan on her doorstep. 
We taught Millie and she is so stressed about her taxes that she scared us by saying that she contemplated suicide. We were able to calm her and give her hope by praying for help. We also taught Lito the Plan of salvation and he said that it clarified a lot for him! He has read the Book Of Mormon to Mosiah 12!
We had zone conference and it was very cool. Our new Christ like attribute that we recite every morning is on Virtue. The scripture is D&C 25:2 
We decided to fast for Lito. We wanted to set him with a date that night for the 29th. We went to a ward dinner that had food from places where ward members served their missions. We later taught Lito the gospel of Jesus Christ and invited him to be baptized. He said he still wants to learn more first before he sets a date. 
That morning we felt we should go by and see Charles, the guy we met a few weeks back. He was outside and wanted to have us come by another day for a lesson so we set it up. Later we decided to tract what we called secret street since I had never gone there before. One man let us in to teach him the Restoration, nothing came of it but its always cool when that happens. We had dinner with the Rodriguez family and after Bro Rodriguez came with us to teach the Indian family. They both have 2 year old's that were born on the same day we found out so their was an instant connection! We taught them about Jesus Christ and why he is so important to us. They wanted to come to church the next day so we planned that out. 
We took Sister Nielsen to pick up the family and bring them to church. Besides that family we had 3 other investigators at church! Millie told us she has made her decision but won't tell us until Wednesday what it is. Madelene called us and told us what she thinks about Millie. They live in the same apartment complex so Madelene knows her situation and told us what others think of her. That really ticked off my companion that she was being nosy.    
     For dinner we went to the Tarbets and had an early family home evening. It was really good!  Their son, Allen, directed it, we watched the end of the Testaments and wrote down our thoughts on what it would be like to be in their situation at the coming of Christ to the Americas. There was a strong spirit that came into the room, I knew and felt that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I know that he did come to other people around the world because our Heavenly Father loves all of his children. I feel reassured and privileged to be one of his representatives doing his work.
