week 93.5 Zone Conference & Teaching A-shan 4/17/2018

In an effort to write more detailed emails, the following resulted ;)

We had zone conference this week which was great! The thing that had the most impact on me was Elder Bednar about teaching with the spirit and how I should really just get out of the way. I am excited for smartphones. I think it will do a lot of good things for the mission, but we just have to learn how to really use it.

Its getting toasty out here only like 25 cel (no idea what the translation is for that). but also like 3 bajillion percent humitity. Gotta love it

A shan is doing well. She is progressing well which is good. Our ward mission leader also scheduled 2 lessons for us which was good. They are 2 former investigators, but the way he scheduled was kind of weird. I don't think that the two of them knew we were coming, but one of them has good potential. Gotta love Bro. Leung :) such a great guy :)

We helped Andrew with English because he has a test this week, so I hope he does well! Ramond is also fun, there is a video somewhere of Elder Devries and I (exchanges) talking about missionary stuff.

We also taught Nathan but he still has to work :( hopefully he can come to A-shan's baptism

Lastly we watched priesthood session in chinese, but a member had the english that we could read which was good. My favorite quote was "the priesthood is more important than any of its offices."  Thats all for this week. God loves us, and He love all of us.

Pictures!! I know I am not the best

Week 92.5 General Conference 4/9/2018

I know that I made a goal to take more pictures... but it didnt happen. any suggestions on how to be better?

We had conference and it was great!! It was great to sustain a new prophet. I really liked how he talked about how to receive revelation. I feel like even though I have been on a mission, I am still not good at that. So I will keep working on it.

A-shan is working  towards baptism still and attended all 4 sessions of conference. I was very happy that she did.

Thats about it for this week.

Week 91.1 Disneyland, Easter, and teaching A-Shan 4/1/2018

Well we went to disneyland this week so that was really fun! We stayed until like 4:30 it was really great!! lots of fun stuff. The one thing we did multiple time was the iron man thing. It is basically like star tours but with iron man.

Funny thing about china, they get easter holiday, its like a 4 day holiday. I wonder why we don't have that in America (we are more christian). Really wierd to think about but thats really funny.

Also another exciting thing, A-Shan has a baptismal date for the 29th of april. Super exciting!! (She is the sister of Nathan our recent convert). We were also able to meet with Collin and he was to change its just hard, so we don't spend that much time on him but hopefully he will progress.

Last thing. Transfer Calls :) I am staying with elder adams but Elder Condie is leaving :( os that is sad. Thats about it for this week!

Week 89.5 Elder Stevenson's visit, pies, and more 3/19/2018

This week has been pretty good. We did a lot of things. 
I went on an exchange with Elder Devries because Sister Webb  suggested it. We have Wong JM this week.
We found her in the zone find which was good. She came to church but after sacrament. She has 3 kids and they are pretty naughty but our ward was really good in helping her out and stuff. 

A Shan, Nathan's sister is doing well. That is about it for this week. 

Elder Adams is doing well. 

Elder Stevenson this last week was so good!!!! We learned a lot about how to be a better missionary. I was very happy to see an apostle of the Lord and that meeting was able to answer a lot of my questions. It was great!! definitely built my faith a lot. 

We went on a hike I think its called duck something and it was super good! loved it got a few investigators to come too! 

It was stinking pie day this week and you know what that means! 3.1 for pie at mcdonalds!! (thats 40 cents a pie). 

We also went to Gin Curry this week and Elder Condie and I ate it all!!!!!! 

We took pictures with Kot family for our records

Week 87.5 Exchanges & Zone Finding 3/4/2018

Well friends this week was pretty good :) 

I went on exchanges with Elder Wong. He is also an abc so it was good! We had some lessons schedule but they didn't show up. Its all good!! 

We then had zone finding in Kwun Tong. It was pretty good. Got a good amount of potentials this week for them. Hope they are greatful ;) 

We then ate with the Wong family. They are a wonderful family who have gone through so much. I am extremely humbled by people who will give their best "to the Lord" I don't necessarily deserve their kindness, but I know that they are blessed for the services that they offer. I also know that there are a lot of silent and faithful people who's story many will never know, but they keep doing it regardless because they have a perfect understanding of God. 

We then had bishop take us to kbq it was super good! and enos (a friend) is in the liahona!!! picture on google drive. It was super funny to see him haha. I thank you all for your prayers. Love you all!
