Hello everyone!

This past weekish has been really good. The weather has been nice and hot, not much rain since last Wednesday which I am happy about! Sister Andrus and I have been very busy contacting and teaching people. The sad thing is the most contacting we do is with less actives and recent converts, not that that's bad but we need some progressing investigators! Our investigators right now are Victor and Cameron and they are pretty stagnant right now, not much growth or progress towards baptism. Victor is worried about being rushed and his family is against him joining the church but he comes to church and activities and takes the lessons well. Cameron is a heroine addict, his mom deals it. He's struggling to stay strong with his current situation. He really needs to move out but he doesn't have a job or anything but he's been trying to get one. He knows the church is true but really needs to overcome his addictions. I was really shocked to see that there's so much poverty, so many homeless people here and such a drug problem!

We had mission conference on Saturday and I was able to shake Elder Nelson's hand! It was such an awesome experience and conference. The spirit was so strong throughout the whole meeting. All of the counsel that was shared with us was so good! Two other member's of the seventy all spoke, it was really uplifting. Elder Nelson was just really funny and shared some really neat stories and things with us. I saw Elder Clegg but he had already left when I tried to find him after. I got to catch up with Elder Andrew! He's doing really well.
​I'm so excited for General Conference to hear from all the apostles. We've been inviting everyone to listen and watch General Conference. I know that we will receive the guidance and inspiration that we need from our prophet and apostles!

The YSA ward is great. Our ward mission leader is awesome as well as the bishopric. They are really pushing member missionary work right now and they are so willing to help give rides to our investigators and less actives and they come teach with us!

Has anyone seen the new Mormon movie Meet the Mormons yet? They had an early showing here and everyone said it was really good. I'm excited to see it and take our investigators to it!

Hope everyone has a great week! Start prayerfully preparing for General Conference!

Love you all,
Sister Richards
