This week we met with Shi Jie Mei. She is a less active and just had a baby. When we went to visit her she told us that she really wants a temple sealing. Her husband is not a member but she really wants him to start coming to church. Part-member families. That is where it is at. But she is so ready to come back to church :)
After DTM on Tuesday, Sister Rumsey and I were not feeling too well and we missed our train out to Dadu. So we prayed to know what we should do. I had the feeling that we should do phones. So we called around. We called a lady that we met last week. She answered and asked if we could meet right then at the church. Of course! She is really excited to learn about the gospel. She has the cutest little girl ever too.
Tonight in English class two of our students said the prayers. Dana and Blake. And it was their first time too! So proud of them. The whole class had a question about baptism so next week we will take a tour up to the baptismal font and explain baptism.
We met with a mother of two, Wu Jie Mei. She is a member's friend. And the member who helped us Pei Ke talked like the whole time. But we were able to explain the basics of the gospel. She is really excited to learn how this gospel can help her family.
Usually we just meet with He An Ting but this week we met with her and her mom. After seeing her mom and asking for her permission about her daughter getting baptized she wants to be a bigger part of it. We had a great lesson about the Holy Ghost. They will start reading the Book of Mormon as a family. And they are praying about baptism together. Her original date was March 5th. But her mom has some concerns that we are working with. It would be great if they could get baptized together!
I have had a headache everyday this week. And I am not quite sure why. But other than that Sha Lu is on fire!
"All must come to realize that Jesus came into mortality to show us the way, the truth, and the life. Indeed, He is the only way, the whole truth, and the perfect life."
Our mission has had a big focus on the Godhead lately. We all need a correct knowledge of the Godhead. I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father who wants all of His children to return to Him. He has provided a Savior, Jesus Christ, to accomplish His purposes. I know that through Jesus Christ we can find peace and forgiveness if we repent. I know these things because of the Holy Ghost. I know that if we pray and pray and pray we can be guided in ANYTHING and truly know our Savior and Father. I am really grateful for this knowledge. I know that I can always find peace and happiness.
The old guy through the window. That is Cai A Bei. He is the funniest old man you will ever meet. He likes to peek in on our meeting and show his baldness.
There is a pic of a parade. There is post Chinese New Year holiday this weekend. So there have been fireworks and music crowding the streets.
There was a YW activity. They made cupcakes and just happened that we were at the church getting out of a lesson when it was picture time.
Love you all! And we will see you next week.
