Hello from Cali. Things are picking up slowly as far as teaching appointments go. But out of the people we are teaching, none of them seem real solid. One cool finding experience I had this week: We were walking through this parking lot and I spotted this guy, kind of hidden, just chillin, sittin on the curb. And I felt inspired that we should talk to him. So we go up to him and we end up teaching him the whole first there sittin on the curb in the parking lot. It was cool. We have a return appointment with him later this week. We have also been busy visiting less actives, some who haven't had a visit for a long time. Bro. Valentine, one of the few white people in our branch, who speaks just a little more Spanish than I do, has been helping us out quite a bit lately since he lost his job at Nummi( A big car manufacturer here). He has been a good help. O, and I heard today that Pres. Obama is going to be in my area tomorrow for something at this solar power company? I'll try and slip him a Book of Mormon if I run into him:) For P-Day Elder Medrano and I climbed Mission Peak. We climbed it from a different trail that was a little tougher. We made it though:) But we almost didn't because this bull came running out of the bushes at us-probably because I was wearnig a red shirt. But me and Elder Medrano went all Matador on it and chased it off. It was a little scary there for a second though. O and one other funny thing that happened this week. For service we were helping to bus tables at this community dinner honoring volunteers- the mayor was there and like a 100 or so honorees. And so I'm bussing tables and I'm filling this Indian guys water And it gets near the end so I tilt the pitcher just a tad more to get the last drop and that's when disaster struck. A bunch of Ice comes fliyn out and goes all over this turban-cladded guy's lap! So i start to give him my deepest apologies as I'm cleaning up and to my pleasant suprise he jokes in his Indian accent "It is ok, hot weather out today, no?" Ha ha so it was still kind of embarrassing, but atleast it was the chillest Indian man in the world:) Any how i have to go but hopefully things continue to get better here. I'm noticing small changes in my self for the better so atleast all this work isn't going to complete waste:) No, we have been blessed to help some families and have helped a few inactives get back to church. I alsohave a good feeling that with the Lord's help we will be able to help somebody come into the waters of baptism and bask in the joy of the Gospel this new transfer. Please pray for hearts to soften and doors to open here in Fremont. Thanks, with love, Elder Flake
