Hello Everyone,

This week has been a much better week. My prayers were truly answered. From the very beginning of the week too. On Monday night we were able to talk to someone who was interested in learning more about the gospel. We went to this one house expecting to find one person and instead we found another person that was interested in learning more about the gospel. This happened twice to us this week. The first time we went to go and see a Sister named Christina and instead we found a guy named Eddie who said that he was interested in learning more about the gospel and invited us back to teach him more. We are going to have a lesson with him tonight! The second time this happened was when we went to find a guy named Antuan and when we knocked on the door another guy named Eric answered instead. We were able to meet with him on Sunday and teach him The Restoration. He has such a huge testimony that God is real and that He has a purpose for him. This is because he was in this car accident where he was drinking and got ejected from the car 70 feet in the air and when he came down he ruptured his kidney and broke a couple of bones. The best part about this is that he took that as a sign from God that he should stop drinking and should not become an alcoholic like his father. I have a feeling that teaching the Word of Wisdom will be pretty easy!

So did you know that it rains in California? Well it does! It turns out that it is El Nino season so we have been getting a lot of rain here. Oh and it also gets pretty cold at night and in the morning when we are running, like cold enough that I can see my breath. Lol. Lets just say that there have been a couple of nights where after we were done proselyting for the night, we went out and got some hot chocolate.

So yesterday was my first Zone Conference and I was privileged enough to be able to hear from a General Authority for my first one. It was Elder C. Scott Grow of the Seventy. He was such a great teacher and I learned so much from him. We learned about Revelation and how important it is for each and everyone of us to receive revelation for ourselves on how we can become better. 

I know that the Prophet is called of God and that as we listen to his councils we can come closer to our Lord and Savior. I also know that through daily prayer and scripture study we can become even closer with our Heavenly Father and the Spirit. 

I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve the Lord and to teach others how they can come back to live with their Father in Heaven.

Thank y'all for all of the emails and support.

I love y'all so much!!

Elder Rudd
