Time to write about the cutest little boy (the Elder's investigator) who ever lived. His name is 홍. (HYB) He is 8 year old and yesterday he got baptized!! He has had a sad, hard life, but he has the brightest eyes, the biggest smile, and the sweetest heart. When he was a baby, his mom left him and his dad. His dad remarried a Vietnamese woman, then his dad passed away! And (understandably) it was really hard for the Vietnamese step-mom to take care of 유, so she gave him to his grandmother to live with. I think the step mom went back to Vietnam. Also, he has a really awful skin disease and has open wounds all over his arms and legs. And just by meeting him, you would NEVER guess he has had such a hard life, because he is the cutest, happiest 8 year old ever. Also, his grandma is really poor, so they have to get food and other necessities from the government center. So they go there a lot.
|This week was Sister J's Senior week. She did a great job! She decided to knock doors one day, and the apartment building had a gorgeous view. Here it is!|
Hmmm...Also this week as I have been reading my scriptures, I have felt so much love from Heavenly Father, and I have realized how many times He has answered my prayers through the Book of Mormon. Whenever I read the Book of Mormon and find an answer to a question or prayer, I put a heart next to the verse and write the date. My Book of Mormon (that I have only been using for 3 years... it's my newish one) is COVERED with little hearts and dates. Just reviewing all of the times that God has answered my prayers through the Book of Mormon has really strengthened my testimony that 1) God answers prayers and 2) God talks to us through the BoM and 3) The Book of Mormon is TRUE! If you have never had the experience of getting answers to questions through the scriptures, I suggest you try it! Sincerely pray, exercise some faith, and then just flip open the scriptures and start reading. You will be amazed at the answers you get!
Hmmm...the bummer is that we still don't know about transfers! President Madson is going to have the APs do transfer calls TOMORROW...which means today is just agony! Hahaha. If I go I will only have a day and a half to hurry and pack everything. Also...sad news...today Sister K went home! Her mission is finished! I can't believe it! Six months with her went so fast. She really was like a BFF! AHHH!!! Tears have been shed. I LOVE HER! Also..it freaks me out because my mission is going by tooooo fast. When I first met Sister K, she only had six months left. Now that is where I am...six months left! Noooooo
|This is one of my favorite sisters ever! She lived in America for a long time. She was baptized a little over a year ago and has the most strong testimony!|
|This sweet member made us a treat! Beans mixed with watermelon and another type of melon (it isn't in America) with honey dumped on top with rice crackers! It was a fun experience. She was so excited to share it with us...it was adorable!|
Well. This was a long email. Sorrrayyyy. And next week I will maybe be transferred to a new area. We will see. Love y'all! Gotta go.
