For this week we did a lot of cleaning! We definitely needed it. It can get really gross when you have two missionaries living together ha ha.

We had our confirmations this week and it was a really good experience. The girl I baptized said she felt really funny and can't describe the feeling she had and that just put a smile to my face. We have been working hard with some of our investigators and we have the potential during the next six weeks to baptize a lot here in Santa Barbara. I've have gotten the nickname of David of Santa Barbara because they haven't had a baptism for 4 months here until I came which is ridiculous here so we are just taking on the impossible and watching miracles here.
We have been traveling a lot this week throughout Santa Barbara. It's huge out here! I haven't been to even half of it. But it is so beautiful here also it's like half coast and half mountains. It's really cool.
We found a man that was very very sick and the family doesn't know what to do for him. None of the doctors know what is wrong so we gave him a blessing. I really like when we go out and do stuff like that. There are a lot of things that are like that here where people just have a lot of problems and you just can't do anything about it.
This is what we drive in a lot they are called TUK TUKS
Wow it is so weird to me that it is so cold there at home because here it's crazy hot! I eat stuff and just walk it all off. . . and sweat it all off. Today we are going to be having iguana yummy! I have lost a lot of weight. Everyone tells me. I found out I weigh 170 pounds now.
It's really good with my new companion. He is a little more serious but he is also funny and I'm enjoying it with him. We hit it off really fast. Douglas [my previous baptism] is doing good. He blessed the sacrament 2 weeks ago and we are now working with his family to try and baptize them.
Next week we should be having a wedding so wish us luck!!! Hope everything is good at home.
Love Elder Toma
