Super Dope Revelation
So this week was the best week ever. We got a ton of stuff done, like so much stuff it's insane. We spent almost no time in our own area is the issue haha.
This week we had trainings to go to and meetings to attend and zone members to help, so we spent pretty much all week outside of our own area. It's alright though because next week we have a ton of time to get back into our area and find some super awesome people to teach.
We did see some super cool miracles this week for our area though. Like I said, we have spent a lot of time in meetings. The other half of our time has been all put into preparing a training for the zone that we are giving tomorrow. It has literally consumed all our thoughts for a while, but we know it is going to be one of the greatest trainings in the history of forever haha. But while we were amidst one of our legendary brainstorming sessions (which consists of me laying on the floor staring at a whiteboard while Elder Alexis planks on his chair staring at it as well) we got a phone call from a number we didnt recognize. So we answer and the guy introduces himself as Webster, a less active who REALLY wants to come back to church and have us teach his wife. So obviously we jump on the opportunity ASAP and go and teach him that night (last night) and man... he is literally the coolest less active I have ever met in my life. He just got this random urge yesterday to go to church and his wife wants to go to church as well so they got our number and called us and now she is going to prepare to get baptized while he is coming back too!! They are the coolest couple and I am so happy to be able to have met them. We are going back on tuesday to teach them again and I legit can't even wait for it!!
So that was an awesome miracle. Also, of course, conference is a super awesome time. We got a ton of super dope revelation from the talks given that we can use on the training we are giving, and we learned how to be better leaders and, of course, stuff to help me in my own life in the future too... so that is always an awesome added bonus!
Love you all and hope you have a good week!

Transfer week again! My goodness... time flies by really fast on the mission. It's crazy! But this week was super amazing and fun. We saw some super dope miracles and watched the Prince of Peace videos with, like, everybody! It's been really fun and I love the video. We got a Part member family to church on sunday (miracle) and the wife really loved it. The husband is going to be working on advancing in the Priesthood so he is super excited and it is helping her out a ton too. Also, our bishop found some youth that always come and play basketball at the church with the young men who want to be taught as well so we are going to be teaching them tonight... so we are really excited about that.
Also we got a referral from the spanish speaking sisters for a German lady. She is super cool. She is really excited about coming to church next week and continuing to learn.
I will have pictures for you all next week :)

Man! So this week has been super cool.
Our amazing miracle part member family is still doing flipping incredible and are probably my favorite people on earth. They are so fun... and they fed us and bishop's family last time we taught them... so they are coming super strong and I am so excited to keep teaching "C". Also this week we got a referral for an amazing man named "F" who is "The most elect man on the face of the earth"-Elder Hansen. So we are so excited to keep teaching him. He already knows the church is true and explained in detail why (i.e the apostasy and the need for a restoration of Christ's church) so that made us all super happy as we taught the restoration and it all just clicked in his head.
Tons of miracles are coming to Hollywood and we are way happy and excited to keep it going.
Elder Hansen is super awesome he reminds me a lot of one of the other missionaries I served with before that I really liked, so it feels like a blast from the past. It is so freaking awesome being with him. He already served in this area about a year and a half ago too, so he is picking up the area super quick which makes everything a million times easier.
That's about it for the week. We are all good in the hollyhood.
Love Elder Foster
