1- That is so crazy. I think nature is running out of things that it can do to us. What even happened where was he and how did he react? I really cant believe it though it is quite the story!
2- Everything is beautiful here ( though it is a little hot ) I am loving life and at this point my mission has become part of my life as of now everything I do is just normal i have adjusted and it is no longer waking up and being a missionary but it is waking up and being me and sharing the gospel with everyone and having fun and smiling and laughing and passing the time in good company.
3- It was a super good week! Quite stressful at some points because it was zone conference this week which took a lot of energy out of me. Basically in preparation every living breathing moment was spent just setting up appointments and interviews and planning for our training. Making sure there was food and everyone knew about it! It was quite the week with that going on! I also gave 2 baptismal interviews this week for 2 young boys 14, and 9 in a family of 5 that was baptized this week. They were from haiti and president came all the way from montreal to see it because of their extraordinary story! They had been investigating the church for like 5 years and they are just now being baptized! It was amazing to see it all really! Other than that. this was elder chous last sunday because there is a broadcast this next sunday so this is his last full week and it is going to be very busy..
4- I have been studying a lot out of chapter 4. This is honestly probably the most important chapter in PMG when it comes down to it. It is through the spirit that we really accomplish everything in missionary work. It is through the spirit that we will testify of the truthfulness of the gospel and it is how God speaks through us to his children. It has been amazing studying the importance of it. Also how it relates to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Basically all throughout our life we will have the need to repent and as we exercise faith in Jesus christ and repent of our sins accessing the atonement of Jesus Christ and listen to the promptings of of the spirit telling us what we should do to change and become better we really become converted as we continue this process throughout our lives.
5- Favorite ward member.. honestly two of my favorite families in the ward are the grahams whom you are friends with on facebook as well as the von scheels! They are a young couple in our ward both about 22 but he was recently called to be the Elders quorum president he served his mission in Greece! They are so cool and they invite us over all the time and they are just on our level and they have become friends really! I am super tight with them! Eating? I have no idea basically Elder chou looks at what we have makes the most amazing meal you can ever think of with all of it and then we live happily ever after it is pretty great! I would say he is probably the best chef in the entire mission..
6- Honestly after everything that happens through the week it means a lot to me to just sit down and play a board game with the other elders in our apartment and hang out and just talk and laugh. Not worry about anything and just take the time to get to know one another and grow closer! When we dont do that we go out and eat together or go down town and shop and site see! All super fun things!
7- Well there is an investigator in our area who has been investigating the church for about 9 months now and she passed her basptismal interview officially and she should be getting baptized this weeked or the next so that has definitely been an amazing tender mercy from the lord we have been trying really hard to focus our attention on her and just help her progress and accept the gospel into her life and I think all our efforts will finally pay off in the next couple of weeks!
Well I think that is all for this week! love you!
