Hello! Great week of missionary work. Amazing week of feeling the Christmas spirit.
This week we did tons of service. First off we delivered Christmas Candy canes to our members. We did that to invite them to come to the Christmas party and to strengthen the relationship between members and missionaries. The branch has been doing great recently. Being a missionary you have to get to know the members as quick as possible in order to know who we could use for fellowship. But the most important thing is to strengthen their testimonies as well. This week I learned about service. During zone training the zone leaders and sister training leaders gave a training about serving others. Sometimes as missionaries we get busy with appointments but we have to look around and try to see if someone is in need. Just like the story of Jesus visiting Jairus. As Jesus was going to the house of Jairus to heal his daughter, a woman with a sickness touched the robes of Jesus. Although they were on there way to an important thing he still gave time and administered unto the woman with the blood disease. Sometime we may be busy but we have to always look out on the service opportunities we could give.
This week we did Christmas caroling as well. We were in Central and we found a spot to sing. Honestly I was having a hard time because the sisters voices are so high but nonetheless I just tried to keep going ( My voice was prolly bad, ha!). It was interesting while singing there would be a companionship doing finding in front. Basically we ended up just saying Merry Christmas to everyone. Well, we still managed to talk to a couple of people. We were able to meet a Mormon actually. He was from London, he acts and is having a play in hong kong. Pretty Cool. We also met a young man in which we were able to bring to the Christmas concert. It was a great experience!
Christmas concert was pretty nice! We were able to bring a couple of people. We even brought Mr. Shi. The super old guy from fujian. He was so funny. He just sings with his Chinese type of voice( if you know what I mean). He actually came to church yesterday as well and he is having a great time. The members love him. Its been a ride with these old people in hong kong. They are the funniest. Hopefully we will be able to help him progress in the gospel. The christmas concert was great, we had a guy named Wayne Burton who sang for us. The name of his album is "What would I give" and he wanted us to ponder of something we can give Christ as a gift. So I extend the invitation to you as well. What can you give Jesus for this Christmas?
Our investigators are doing really well. They have been keeping their commitments. Elder Forston and I have been praying hard and we have seen the difference it brings. I love this work. I am honestly having the greatest time of my life. I know the church is true. I know Christ lives, and he is the reason why we celebrate this holiday.
