Week 101.5 Teach Austin & MLC 6/12/2018

So this week has been pretty good we were able to teach Austin and that went well. He is took the IELTS so hopefully it went well. We also had missionary leadership council which was good. We talked a lot about obedience. That's really about it for this week. 

I also went on exchanges to Po Lam with Elder Devries. The man is a legend!! love the guy. We also got our sim cards at MLC!!! but its kinda 唔關我事 because I don't have a smart phone... so yea!!! We also got a lot of rain this week... so it was cooler! Also bought some Pizza and thats expensive here... but you know its all good, glad the boys enjoyed it.

Week 100.5 Whatsapp 6/4/2018

Well this week was good!!! we were able to do a lot of whatsapp stuff!! trying to use it to its full extent and its been great so far!! A -Hei was able to come to church this week!! That was great!! We went finding... a lot, but I am definitely going to miss finding. You meet the coolest people. as my trainer said they disappointments outnumber the great moments but the great moments will always outweigh the disappointments. I love it. You should all do it!!! it will change your life. The church is true. 耶穌基督係我哋嘅救主同咪我哋大家可以同佢一齊返到去。

My pride is my Pain, 
My prayer is my peace, my humility is my hope, my savior is my salvation.

Week 99.5 Tsz Shan Temple 5/29/2018

Crazy that its the 99th week of my mission... um... I don't know how I feel about that. 

Anyway we went to tsz shan temple on monday. That was pretty cool! It was a giant white buddhist statue. Pictures in the drive. We took a taxi because I'm dying and I can use my money for travel and food... so yea Taxi it was. We were also waiting for the bus for like ever. It was good though. Definitely worth it. The pictures don't do it justice.

This week was good. We were finally able to meet with more people!!! YAY!!! 

The rest of my pictures is from English class this week. How the adventures and joy of children.

Week 98.5 Busy Week 5/22/2018

Well this week was pretty interesting. We originally were going to go to lion rock but Nathan got kinda woozy so we came home and yea. We got home on time though which we wouldn't have if we had hiked the whole thing. 

This week we had a phone training on tuesday and that took longer than expected so we had district meeting after that and that was about it for tuesday. 

Wednesday we had English class. (bear with me I am trying to remember what happened this week.) Oh! we also met a girl named Kathryn. She is super cool, last minute she cancelled on us but later is fine!! super excited for her. 

Friday we ate with a family, and saturday we met with ji kiu who was pretty cool and wants to learn more. We met with President Lau as well and he wants us to get A-shan and Nathan back to Po Lam. So that will be a process. Thats about it for today though! till next week. Sorry I literally forgot to take pictures. but I have like 3

Week 97.5 Mother's Day & Pray/Listen/Write/Act 5/14/2018

There has been a lot of finding this week. We are trying our best, I think it is interesting that when you are working your hardest, you have the most amount of miracles but also I feel like I experience the most amount of discouragement and just feeling lost I guess. It is interesting, the harder we are working how Satan will try to match that to make us fall.

We have a new potential, Jacob, who has potential to become a new investigator. I guess the hardest part for us right now is to try to turn potential investigators into actual investigators. Other than that everything is great! the ward is really supportive

I also feel like I am growing a lot more. I did something that our leaders have said and that is to pray, listen, write down, and act on those promptings. I heard that from somewhere and it is really working! Its interesting how much I can still learn haha, I know I'm only 20. I think it is really cool that I am able to receive inspiration for how I can do better, or what to do in this specific situation and all that. So that is great! I will try to keep it up. You should all do it too!! I know it will bless your life.

Till next week!!

Got to call home for Mother's Day!

Week 96.5 Finding & Listening More 5/6/2018

This week has been pretty good. I think Elder Johnson is really helping us have more faith when finding. I feel like this week was very good, even if we didn't really meet with a lot of investigators. 
Ken hasn't been answering our phone so we don't know but hopefully he will answer one day. We had Hudson and A-Ting that became new investigators this week. I would give them like 60-70% potential. Hudson was the one from English Class that I talked about last week. A-Ting has a brother in Tuen Mun ward and she is pretty good. I think that she has heard about church stuff for so long that I think she has kind of lost what is most basic, so we are going to try to help her understand what is the most important things to focus on which is the core principles and doctrines of the Gospel. We found a lot more this week, and found a lot more people this week. We are hoping to have a lot more new investigators this coming week. Things are working which is great! Even with MLC we were able to find a lot it feels like.
I guess I was pondering my mission, and as I have listened after my prayers especially at night, I have been able to get answers when I listen more which I was just so surprised by, only because it never really happened before. I learned that we should be happy for "the good that has been accomplished." I feel like I have been receiving a lot of "inspiration" recently, and some I would even call revelation. I am really happy that God has been able to help me realize and receive those things.

Week 95.5 A-Shan's Baptism 4/29/2018

This week was pretty good! A Shan was baptized and her brother was able to come to church (he hasn't been for a while because of work :( ). 

for exchanges exercise one day we ran to a waterfall. Elder Johnson is super solid :) I like him a lot. Elder Adams and I are doing well as well. With A-shan getting baptized, we will need some new investigators, so if you have friends in hong kong, you should send them our way (also our mission is going to get whatsapp soon so that will be really exciting). 

We also had Hudson and Judy randomly showed up to english class. a random person in a restaurant gave them a flyer who they say is their friend, but don't know what their name is... so I don't know, but Elder Adams and I have attributed it to the 3 nephites. Hopefully it is, because that would be kinda cool.

Thats about it for this week, good luck you all!!!
