February 13, 2017

Hello everybody, 
This week was a little slow because we had a ton of appointments that fell through. We set up a really good week and it slowly crumbled and fell apart as the week went on. We had Zone Conference though which was good. They are always uplifting and edifying. We still got some stuff done but plans don't always go as expected. There's always next week though!
So the Woodland Park Elders that we work pretty close with got a Costco card and we've been shopping there with them and using it. They also found a waffle maker for $5 so we got a huge bag of waffle batter and make a bunch of waffles like every other day. We also got 50 packs of ramen noodles. I discovered that ramen is pretty good with siracha sauce as well. Oh and everybody in California has orange trees and they've been growing a lot and so people always give their extra oranges to the missionaries. So we got like 3 huge bags of oranges this past week. So overall we are basically dining like kings. 
So we picked up the Woodland Park Elders from Microsoft the other day and they have this robot in their parking lot that roams around that we discovered. It basically goes around and scans license plates and takes pictures. I guess that each employee's plate is in their system so they can see if there is anybody there that isn't supposed to be. It also does facial recognition too I think. But we befriended it and briefly tried to share the gospel with it but it ran away. Oh well.
We went to the mall earlier and we went to the Footlocker House of Hoops which is essentially heaven. I love that place. We also found a Gucci flip flop for $240 lol. It's hilarious. We just finished mini golfing and we got to go for free because the owner is a member so that was pretty fun. The weather was actually good today, it's been raining a ton. Which sucks when we have time set aside for contacting because nobody goes outside. So far there have been just as many (if not more) rainy days as there have been sunny days which has been an interesting first experience in California. But I don't mind the rain too much, I just wish that it would actually thunder storm instead of just rain. I miss thunderstorms. 
But anyways, things have been going just fine, the weeks have been moving really fast and I don't know where the time goes. It's kind of a freaky feeling whenever it's already Monday again. But I love you all and hope that you are all doing well, I love hearing from everybody and it sounds like everyone is doing fine. Until next week,
