Got a Brand New Corolla, Red, Out in The Parking Lot

Laguna Niguel 
So, to start off I figured that ya'll would know by now, but the ward is called the Laguna Beach Ward....sorry I never actually told you guys what it was called. 

This week was amazing. We started off kinda slow; we didn't have much planned out for the week so we just kinda went and did drop by's all week. One of the best things that happened this week is that we got a new car! Whenever a car gets 50,000 miles on it, they sell the car and give us a new one. So we got a brand spankin' new 2015 Toyota Corolla. Ya it's tricked out. We have a usb port and back up camera in it and blue tooth so we can sync our phone. We get set up a bit more than Drew did on his mission HAHAHAH! 
But even better than that was we went and did baptisms for the dead with Rob. It was the single most spiritual experience in my life. He was baptized for his dad and younger brother and great grandpa and an uncle. Then we had a lady in the ward come and get dunked for his mom and grandmother and an aunt. He totally felt the Spirit. But the crazyiest thing was that when we got done, Hancock was sitting on a bench and I was a witness - we both felt as if there were people standing next to us. It was the most warm and amazing feeling ever!!!

Church yesterday was great. Michael (a members boyfriend) showed up to church. We have taught him once before and he has come a bunch. We have been trying to teach him since but he has been way busy. He is the guy that wants to go golfing with us. So we talked to him and we are going to go this Thursday and after golf we will go over to a guys house and have another lesson. But the coolest thing is the fact that in the Gospel Essentials class he was sitting there and there were 2 recent converts in the class and Michael and these 2 others were just talking and participating in the class so much! Michael is just blown away by the Spirit and love that is had in all of the meetings. He said that when everyone says they know the church to be true he says he can feel it. Needless to say we are going to invite him to be baptized this week, hopefully with a date of June 6 so pray for that!

It's so crazy to think that Josh and all those other guys got ordained Elders! It seems like yesterday that they were juniors. I feel so old!  But that is way cool and good for them.

The last week and a half we have been getting a fair amount of rain. Like we will go into a meeting and it will be sunny and we will come out and its raining. It's good that we are getting rain cause the drought is pretty bad, but not so much that anyone's really freaking yet. The rain just dampens my mood and I don't like that.

Well it's going to be a good week! I hope we have a couple of lessons set up for the week but the worst is that transfer calls come in this week, so I am kinda freaking out but it's like whatevs. 

I love you all and hope you have a great week also.
