Hey guys,

I am loving Sacramento, California (Sac-town). It kind of reminds me of Pembroke Pines, FL.  I have been teaching a couple of wonderful families. The Valdez family, from Mexico, and the Gullermina, also from Mexico. They have been progressing very well and I do love their families and teaching them about the gospel. The other day, when we taught the Valdez family, we explained to them in depth about the Plan of Salvation. The spirit swelled the room and they were crying at the end of the lesson. I bore my testimony and I couldn't help but try to hold back my tears. It was a wonderful lesson. They want to be baptized so my companion and I are ecstatic about that! My companion is Elder Villalva, from Ecuador, and he is so AWESOME! He's been showing me the ropes of being a missionary and is so much fun. He is also hard-working, which keeps me motivated to go out every day and teach. He has been helping me with my Spanish quite a bit. So, in short, he is the best trainer I could've asked for.  I'd send pics, but I forgot my camera... I gotta head out, but I love you Mom, I love you Dad, I love you Benjamin, and I miss you guys, but right now I love the mission more. I love being here and I love serving the Lord. The church is true.

Elder Sierra
