Hey family! So, last week we went to Discovery Bay to try the Paisano's pizza challenge. 2 people, 20 minutes and a 24" pizza... There were 6 of us, 3 teams of 2.. and two teams won... ours lost. Hahahahaha! I ate about 3 1/2 pieces and my teammate, Elder Goronson, ate a little less... It was pretty embarrassing. He had won the challenge before, too!! I dunno what happened. We prepped and everything!! Elder Anderson ate 5 slices, there are 8 in the pizza, which I didn't think was physically possible. It was incredible. I felt terrible for the rest of the day. I almost threw up like twice, haha.
Other than that we are doing well. Been working really hard with Blair, our investigator. She's been investigating for a long time and hasn't really progressed, but last week we had a breakthrough. We read 1 Nephi 8 with her and explained the vision, read and talked about the scripture. No formal lesson or anything. It went really well, and she told us it really helped her. She read ten chapters last week and really likes it now. So, it's super good.
Other than that, we've had a kind of slower week. It's New Years, so people are really hard to schedule. Everyone just tells us to call after New Years, so we've just been out finding. But after February we should have more lined up. Love you guys! Thanks for everything! Keep swimming. Never quit.
