Hey family!
Elder Flake here in Salinas. Sounds like everyone is doin well, good to hear. So what happened this week? Fidel didn't make it to church this week, so we'll have to push back his baptismal date :( But he's still the world's nicest old man and we have an appointment with him tonight so a la mejor he'll still be baptized here in the near future.

I did some more service on an exchange this week with Elder Campbell. It was a 'clean up Salinas' project and we got to wear little orange vests and walk around the streets and a park picking up trash. There was a BBQ after so that was nice.

As a part of the Zone Goal this week I had to ask 2 random people on the street to be baptized. The crazy part was that both of the people i asked said yes! One of them Elder Mote and I will teach on Wednesday, and the other was this cool black guy named Keis who the English Elders will go and see. I should ask random people to be baptized more often... :)

On Tuesday we had a Zone Conference and I got to hear from Elder Gavarret again. He's a very loving man. President Watkins is a very qualified man. He talked a lot about the need to be 'pro' in our actions and appearance, and that we need to win the hearts and minds of the ward members, and especially the ward council members, in order that they will trust us.

On Monday we ended up going to the park and throwing a football and also playing scategories at our Bishops house. It was fun. We're hoping to get a member to take us to Monterrey or somewhere today. Just to see the sights. This will most likely be the last week of Elder Mote and I being together. I can't imagine us being together for 5 transfers. I'll let you know next week about transfers. We have the car week this week. So hopefully we'll be able to meet with a lot of our potentials we have gotten from all the contacting and increase our teaching pool a bit. Well that's all for now. I love you all so much!
