Rancho Cucamonga, California -October 15, 2013

Hey family,

Sorry I didn't get to you yesterday....Columbus day.  It ruins my life.

So today we went to Beehive Clothing.  When we were in there, there was a lady with the last name Facer, who just so happens to be the sister in law to Lin, and Lloyd Facer in Smithfield.  Crazy huh?  And another lady in there is from Franklin and says that is was her family that put the Rite in Ritewood eggs. What a small world huh?  Her son and daughter are both expecting their mission calls this week some time. 

Well for mission work this week...We had another lesson with Isabella and Bianca Chamberlin.  We just have the commandments to teach them.  The whole family (minus the wife) came to church for all three hours and the kids thought it was so fun!! The were practicing for the primary program.  They are planning on going to the ice cream party/practice for the program again on Saturday and then be in the program Sunday at church.  I was so happy that they loved church.  The dad, Richard, who is less active, wants to baptize his two girls, so he is meeting  with the Bishop to figure that stuff out.  So once that is figured out, we will be able to set a baptismal date with the family for them to work towards.  I am excited to see where things go with them.  We have a lesson on Friday with them.

Yesterday, Janet Hernandez, (who is Nico, our investigators mother) wanted to take Sister Pollard and I shopping.  She is just my favorite and I love her to death.  So since we had a little more open of a day because we couldn't email, we met her for a bit during her lunch break.  I got a couple of shirts at Ross and two pairs of shoes.  One is for p-days because it is either running shoes or my church shoes with pants when we do activities and neither are my favorite and then just a red pair of flats.  So it was good. We had a lot of fun with her.  I was in need of a couple new shirts.  Wearing these clothes all day every day while sweating and moving around so much, really wears them out so fast.  It is crazy!

This week, Elder Robbins from the seventy is visiting our mission.  Tonight there is a fireside for all investigators, less actives and recent converts with in the last three years.  So we have invited a few people out to that and that is what we will be doing for the rest of the day.  Hopefully we can get a good turnout.  It is mission wide so there are probably going to be a lot of people.  I am excited.  We are only allowed to go if we bring someone so we are trying our best to find people.

Tomorrow we are being bused up to Apple Valley for a zone conference to hear Elder Robbins speak some more.  This one will be focused on missionaries though.  It will be from 130 to 530, so quite long.  Then the drive there is an hour so we will be gone from probably 12 to 7.  So most of our day will be at that.  It will be super good.  I am excited for it.

But that is about all that is going on down here in Rancho Cucamonga.  Three weeks til transfers!! Half way through!! Woot woo!! We are still going strong. Still pushing through

Love you all
Sister Woodward
