This week was the last week of the transfer. I can't believe I've already finished a transfer here in Newark. That went quick...
This past week was more of the same, with a few nice differences. On Sunday, we got 2 investigators to church, the ones we barbecued with a few weeks ago. One of them comes pretty consistently, but the other one hasn't been there since I've been here, so it was nice. They are doing well, and we are trying to take them to the temple visitor's center this week. That is a great resource that we have up here.
We also had a good street contact with a man named Richard, and we are going by his house tonight. The Zone goal last week was for the whole zone to place a whole case of Book of Mormons. We started talking to him and gave him a Book of Mormon. He said he would try to come to church this coming Sunday and said we could go by his house sometime. It was pretty cool because we've had trouble finding people to teach here. We've been teaching lots of less actives, but not many non-members. He seemed really genuine, so we'll see how it goes.
The downside of last week was that is was so hot! It got over 95, and some people are saying it was over 100. And it isn't like Florida where everyone has an AC unit. It only lasted a day though, and then the wind from the bay started up again and it cooled everything down.
For Pday yesterday, we went across the bay over to the peninsula and hung out with missionaries in Palo Alto and Menlo Park. We were up on Stanford's campus, and it was really nice. I was glad I was walking around as a missionary there instead of a student though.
