This week was pretty good! we were able to have a game day activity and it was pretty good because we had some nonmembers came, which was what our ward mission leader was hoping. It was a 3 1/2 hour activity, but little kids are so energized that they can go forever. I feel like we as HSK elders and sisters really put a lot of work into it, and used our faith, and we had miracles. The sisters were able to find a new investigator from the activity.
As for church it was also pretty good because we were able to have a person we met last week come to church, and he has also been reading the Book of Mormon! :) we are happy that he is a new investigator. He is a rapper and pretty cool. It is an interesting situation. He found the church online and came and wanted to find out more. He is christian and wants to know why we receive so much flack for what we believe. He does kind of have a hard time with prophets but we hope that by reading the Book of Mormon, he can find his answer.
I also loved that we were able to go to the temple this week. I received some much needed revelation that I felt like I needed and afterward we practiced with Elder Love for the lion rock musical fireside. It is really long to go from here to Kowloon because of the time it takes to travel, but it will be worth it!
Also I read in D&C 20:5 and 6 it is talking about why Joseph Smith had a quiet period where he did not receive revelation, and this built my testimony because I realized that a false prophet would not criticize himself. This revelation reveals to us the weakness of Joseph Smith. so that built my testimony of the prophet Joseph Smith
Also Elder Quentin L Cook is coming in a month!!! (I think its him) but an apostle is coming and I am so excited!! its funny because Hong Kong does not have any mission that borders it, we are bordered by china and the sea. so we don't tune into a broadcast but we get to have an apostle come!! i am so very excited :)
we are the branches from the tree of life whose core is Christ. We have all the fruit that grow on us and often times forget to acknowledge Christ who if feeding and nurturing those fruit and we get to feel the success of his work. He is the greatest seed planter.
D&C 50:24 that which is of God is light; and he that recieveth light, and continueth in God, recieveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.
