Hello Everyone,

Great week of work! Our hard prayers and faith are paying off. I am grateful for the many spiritual experiences I go through on my mission. I am most grateful for the time out here to be able to develop good spiritual habits and see how the pattern goes. One thing I have learned out here is how prayers are important. We have to pray when we pray. We have to pour out our hearts into the prayer to be able to receive specific revelations.

This week we were able to meet with almost all of our investigators. Our investigators have been keeping their commitments. One of the struggles out here is helping people gain a desire to learn about Christ and His teachings. We ask God everyday to soften their hearts and to help them develop a desire to learn and follow Christ. We are excited for one of our investigators, his name is Tony. He is full of energy and his enthusiasm is contagious. He has been progressing really well and we are giving him a baptismal date the next time we meet with him. I am also very grateful for the many investigators we are teaching, the relationship we created is eternal.

I was able to sit down with President Lam and have an interview with him. It was really spiritual. I am very impressed with his spirituality and knowledge of the scriptures. I am grateful for the suggestions he gave me to help me become a better missionary. Not only for missionary work though but also in life.

Elder Forston has been great. He is really faithful and we are working hard together. We are always tired everyday and that is great! The area has been really great. There are tons of families and students so its a mix of both. Hopefully this week we get good finding time and we will be able to find the golden people.

Hmm, I guess this letter is full of tender mercies. I am just very grateful that I get to see Gods hand  touching my life and others as well. I invite everyone to take time and write down a tender mercy from God every day and you too will see how He is blessing you.

I know this is the greatest and most important work. I am grateful to be apart of it. I know Jesus Christ lives. I know God lives. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints is the restored church. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It really is another testament of Jesus Christ. I am grateful I am able to serve my master here in Hong Kong. Hope ya'll have a great week.
