California Power!

Hello Folks! I am pretty pumped up and happy today. A bunch of cool things are happening here in the area and a bunch of funny things as well. We had two baptisms this week which was pretty sweet. And we hope to have three more this week. Yeah! The work is great. We are working close to the church and have a big teaching group. My new companion is a Californian from Sacramento. We are besties already. We got free gym membership as well so are getting ripped, very slowly. So we had a bunch of funy contacts this week. One guy literally got off the couch, took off his shirt, and then answered the door and said he was taking a shower. Another one was with a kid and we asked if her parents were at home. The parents shouted quite audibly, no just tell them I am really busy. We were eating at a members house and there was a little kid that was watching a movie about Christmas. We asked what the film was about and he said 创Papai Nohell.创 The correct way to say that would be Papai Noel which would be Santa Claus or Father Christmas. But 创No创 means in the. So it became 创Father in Hell创 and my comp and I just busted up laughing. Well thats all folks! Come on really, Elder Healy

Perfect Week

Hello, This week flew by and was one of the best weeks I have had thus far. We had divisions pretty much every night and all of our investigators are progressing. We passed the mission goal for people in sacrament meeting and we have the wards support. We are going to do a super funny talent show which I will be happy to send you photos of when it happens. My companion is going to be transferred to another zone and I will stay here to hold down the fort. He was not to happy with that, and I will be sad to see him go. But I am excited to get cracking with a new comp.Who knows if he will go to the gym with me ^^ Through study and prayer, I have become so thoroughly convinced of the Great Apostasy and the Restoration because of the abundance evidence that can be found, the sense it makes, and the spiritual witness I have received. I invite everyone of you to study the scriptures, to here the story, and to pray and ask God if it is true. And you, like me, can receive a spiritual confirmation. Come on really, Elder Healy

Family Completed

Dear People, I am feeling kind of tired right now so I hope you bear with my probably lack of focus. We had a pretty good week this week and the zone had a great week. We were able to baptize a youth whose family we reactivated and do interviews for other missionaries in the zone. We also recieved 20! references this week from the members. We are going to be busy busy in the week that comes. I was on dvision 3 days this week which really helped me to help others. I love sharing what I know and learning from other Elders what I can work on. I also made cookies for the baptism which everyone loved. Said they were they best any Elder had done. Making my Mother proud. It rained in the house again so a couple of pictures got glued together... that was fun. Also, I dont have diabetes. Come on really, Elder Healy

Busy, Busy

Sorry I didn´t write yall on Monday, I was in a leadership meeting and did not have time. But I am writing now. This last week was interesting and one of growth. We had the opportunity to finally have a solid week of work in the area and the results showed because of it. We were able to teach many people and leave with many members. We had a two-member division like 3 or 4 times last week and were able to visit a bunch of people. My companion knows how to teach extremely well and is very confident in his abilities. We will baptize on Sunday! Woohoo! We reactivated a family that had been sealed in the temple but went away from the church a couple of years ago. We have helped bring them back to church and stop working on Sundays and there son will be baptized at 4 with all his member and non-member family in attendance. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to go on a division to an area that is struggling in our zone. He stayed with the Senior companion there. He had not been doing his contacts, lessons, or new investigators and I went there to find out why. He knows how to work well and we were able to mark 4 baptims, find 5 news, and mark 6 people for church in the course of a couple of hours. I showed him why we need to work and how we can do it. I love being able to help others realize their potential. We also had some interesting encounters. One person we marked to visit tried to avoid us by turning her head and looking off into the horizon when we saw her sitting in a chair in the front. We just stood there looking at the same point to make it awkward. Then we taught her. All the members think I have high blood pressure because of a faulty blood test I did. So now we are eating like rabbits. That´s a good thing, however, because I had some blockage problems recently. I haven´t been drinking as much water as I should so things have been a little drier to say the least. Then I started feeling a extreme pain in my stomach after lunch so President order me to go to the Doctor. They did an X-Ray and discovered that my large intestine was so stuffed up that I had a gas pocket that couldn´t escape which was causing pressure. A couple Lax and I was good to go. I feel more and more each day the presence of God in my life and less and less desire to sin and do anything contrary to his will. I know that I am doing the work of the Lord and know that anyone can recieve the same testimony I have. I love you all. Come on really, Elder Healy P.S. Go Warriors!
