Week 30.5 Chinese New Year with Family in Hong Kong 1/30/2017

This week has been great because of Chinese New Year!!!!!!!! but before I get into the china stuff we for preparation day went to Sai Gung and had like an actual legit american burger (all ingredients imported from the states) so it was a really nice slice of america right there

We did a lot this week first I went on exchanges with Elder Stober super fun. There were 7 people we got phone numbers from... all from china... but studying in poly tech haha but we got no cantonese! :( so that was interesting haha. We were also coming home from buying Mcdonalds (cause that is everywhere in hk) and we bumped into Elder Wong (the first person to speak in his native language in general conference) it was super cool! and luckily we were not doing anything we were not suppose to haha :)

We also had 1 hr of church because it was chinese new year haha :) and it was pretty good. I was also able to visit my family for chinese new year and they are super great! (dont worry I got permission) Then afterwards we went singing finding in a tunnel which was great and fun and attracted a lot of attention haha, and the funny thing was that this lady passed by and we said hi and she said hi back, but then she came back and gave us chinese red pockets! it was super funny and proved that there are nice people everywhere! So we earned 40 hk dollars for the LORD that day haha :)

We also were able to teach Andrew and set a baptismal date. He actually lives in Kwun Tong and I think he has special permission to be baptized in TKO but we will see. He is doing well :) I love how the lord works through us because he wants us to learn.

The lord definitely shows his hand in our lives in tender mercies :) This gospel is true and apparently the missionary schedule will change and we shall see on Thursday!!!! 

The Wu family also asked us over to eat and it was really good haha there were like 10 missionaries there and the daughter is going on a mission to Korea I think? but it was super fun :)

pride is diminishing or elevating what we see in ourselves and others
misunderstanding is the prelude to offense - James E Talmage
Christ is sad when we sin because we are hurting ourselves
the spirit can only testify of truth. If we say we know something but we don't actually know, the spirit will not be with us
we as missionaries are throwing seeds into the wind, to sow, so many fail but a lot will succeed. The ground can always be soften. (parable of the sower)
spirit is a light switch to help you remember but it is not to give you new knowledge you have never heard of before
It was only when I found God that i was truly happy -sis Ho

D&C 50:24 that which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.
