This week was an awesome week for us! It was filled with a bunch of miracles. During the daytime this week we had meetings, and set up for Khmer New Year, so our proselyting time was limited. Monday started off with a miracle. We met a lady who is visiting from Cambodia. She invited us in, and we taught her the Restoration! She set up to meet multiple times in the week. The next day, I called one of our YSA Cambodian converts and asked if we could teach her niece. She said, "Yes." and so we drove down to McDonald's, inside Walmart, in downtown Long Beach. There's not many more ghetto places you can teach, but we had a really good lesson, and we were able to come back and teach them again on Thursday! On Friday, we got a referral from another missionary. We stopped by and taught her about repentance and Baptism. She loved it. We went back on Sunday and she set a Baptismal date for June 7th. I hope I can come back and see it! This week we went from having no investigators, to 4! It was awesome. I've never had an area doing so poorly when I got moved into it, but now we have found multiple less-active members, investigators, and are seeing real progress. I see God's hand in this work, and it is only because he loves us that he shows us these tender mercies!
I'm sending pictures from our event at El Dorado park. We had a spinning wheel and handed out candy, donuts (10 dozen donated by a member), and a traditional Cambodian desert, Loat svet. It was a big hit, and a LOT of people signed up to learn more. It was a great experience (and I got some cool shirts from winning a raffle after buying a shirt for 12.50). A lot of members helped out, and I am so grateful for their service and sacrifice!
Until Next time!
