Los Angeles Visitor's Center

Dear family,
     This week was good, we did some neat things. First to tell you transfers, I'm staying in Cerritos for another 6 weeks. I'm like happy but at the same time I kinda want to go some where else now, haha. At the end of this transfer, I will have been here for 1/4 of my mission and yeah, apparently the Lord still has something for me to do here. But I know missionaries that stayed in their areas for like 10 months, so yeah. 
     A fun thing we did this week was that we went to the Los Angeles Visitors Center again with one of our investigators. Her name is Jyssika and she is 9 years old. Her whole family ended up coming so we had a party, ha. Jyssika didn't seem too interested but her Grandma did.  She totally felt the Spirit while we were there and we are going to be working with her very soon. I'm pretty pumped about that one and if we get her to progress, it will definitely help Jyssika progress, and yeah. 
     Now on a more funny slash salty note. We got locked out of our apartment. Now the reason that was super salty is because we also left the car keys inside, our phone inside the apartment, so we couldn't drive any where and we couldn't call anyone. Of course you would think that the apartment manager would have a spare right, makes sense right, EH! WRONG!  He did not have a spare key. We tried calling the one place for the key but they were on vacation or something so we couldn't get the key from them. so it is Sunday morning and we have to get to Church. So what do we do, we walked. It's not that far but we were late so the whole thing was just a bugger. We walked a bunch and then decided to stopped by a less active member's house to see if he would give us a ride to church and then come inside with us. Well that day he decided to go to Church and on time so he wasn't home to give us a ride, but his random cousin was so we got a ride from him. When we got back, that less active member got a ladder and climbed in through our bathroom window and unlocked the door. So, all is well, peace be still. 
      One of the Sister Missionaries is going home, back to Tonga. Before she left, she gave me a LAVA LAVA! you know one of those Samoan / Tongan man skirts. I love it.  I'll send you a picture of that one later.
I love you guys 
Love Elder Richards
