Not  a whole lot happened this week as far as lessons. But we had a good week so I don't really feel too bad about it. So to start off we had transfers and as I'm sure everyone has noticed. I'm staying in Coachella! Yay!!! Hermana Santiago and Elder Harline were transferred and that was sad. But Hermana Deroche's MTC Companion, Hermana Wong is now Hermana Thomas's companion and Hermanas Wallor and Deroche are companions. That puts 3 of the first 5 Mexico MTC missionaries in my District and the other 2 are in the Palm Desert B Zone (Hermana Howe), and in Fontana (Elder Moore). I really want us 5 to all be in the same district.. no same ward someday. That would be super cool!!!!

The Zone before transfers last week

I got a package from Carolin!!!! It’s full of awesome German Chocolate!!! It’s super super awesome!  

So Shout Out To Carolin!!!!

We had a really cool experience this week that led to a new investigator. We were going through the area book and organizing the people into categories and then we went out to start finding. We went to the first house looking for a Cynthia and we knock on the door and nobody answers. So we knock again, and still nothing.  We are about to leave when this guy walks up and turns the door handle then knocks and rings on the same door. We look at him for a second kind of stunned and then we ask if this is his house and he says yes and his brother opens the door and the guy asks if we want to come in. So we are like well yeah for sure. So we go in and we are talking. Sharing a bit about what we do as missionaries and he stops us and says he has something he wants to show us and he (sorry his name is Victor as we have found out in our talking) Victor goes into another room for a few minutes and then when he comes back out he has a bunch of books. He hands each one of them to us and says this is a Catholic Bible and this is a Jehovah's Witness Bible and he had 3 copies of the Book of Mormon and we are just like whoa... And so we start talking to him and we realize that he is super prepared. He has been searching and searching and trying to learn and find the truth. We shared a bit more and asked if we could come back the next day and we asked him to 2 Nephi 31. We went back the next day and read the chapter again (again because  he had actually read it!!!) and then we taught him about the Gospel Of Christ and we invited him to be baptized and he accepted!!!! His baptism is set for Jan. 12!! Its soooo exciting!! That's the last time we were able to meet with him so far but we are hoping for tonight or tomorrow! Please keep him in your prayers!

On Saturday we went down to Thermal and helped a brother of the ward fix up his house. We put floor boards down and ripped up tile. We even started putting the wood panel flooring in! It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. When we got done we went to the church building and we traded our Corolla in for a new Chevy Cruz! It’s blue and super cool, fast, maneuverable, and has a pretty nice sound system. It has 4000 miles on it. So like basically if something happens to the car it’s my fault. But don't worry! I'm taking great car of it and we are keeping it nice and clean :)

 I hope you guys all have fun and make good choices! Remember the reason for the season!

Have a great Week!

Love you all!,
Elder Zachary Gore :)
