Teaching English

This week is late because we went to the temple today! Never gets old! (luckily - I mean I will be going there quite a bit for the rest of my life) and the session was in Cantonese so they gave us headphones but it was fun to turn them down and listen to the Cantonese sometimes. Well this week has continued to just fly by. We taught English class, and I've got to say it's probably the best one I've ever seen. Me and my companion taught it and we taught about different countries so we took everyone on a big "trip" and flew around the world. Sounds lame. but we made it super fun. Everyone was laughing the whole time (in a good way), learning English, and having fun. Then we shared about how God is a universal god, not just an American god or a Chinese god (lots of people here think like that) . 
Edmund came to church this past week and he loves it! We couldn't get hold of him Saturday night to remind him so we were pretty nervous but then the next day, bright and early at 9 o'clock we saw him coming to church! It was super awesome to see how willing he is to come unto Christ and learn more about Him. Adi is continuing to be awesome! She is learning more and more every day and we are just praying that she will continue. We taught her about faith and holding onto the iron rod (the Book of Mormon) because if that book is true then we know this is God's one and only true church. None of the little things matter. If the Book of Mormon is true, we don't have to worry about little things like the one thing where you have more than one spouse (I can't remember the English word) you know like Brigham Young had a lot of wives?   Anyways sorry not a whole lot of time but here are some scriptures you all should check out:   2 Timothy 4:7,8   Oh and that thing I told you over the phone, the tongue twister, it means:  one dollar for a turtle, one dollar for a chicken. on the left you buy a turtle, on the right you buy a chicken.  He says the chicken is more expensive, I say the turtle is more expensive. so I'm asking you which is more expensive, the chicken or the turtle.  Sounds pretty lame in English but in Cantonese it's a whole tongue twister.   Oh and mom you called it. I forgot to tell you but on the phone when we first started Elder Smith said a couple lines... we were trying to see if you would notice.. you did.. still sharp! Well that's it for the week love you all!
Love, Elder Cederlof
