We have definitely been seeing a lot of good things happening in the area. One of the major miracles of the week was the lesson we had with Tam SS. He has continued to learn and grow in faith up to this point but he hadn't come to church yet. We decided to teach him about the Sabbath day and the importance of that commandment. Because he drives a car for his work, people will usually call and book him for Sundays, that's why he can't come to church. As we shared about this commandment and 1 Nephi 3:7 he definitely felt something. Before sharing about that, he had the reason of : I'm a special case, I need to work. After that scripture and a little bit of discussion he said something to the effect of: I believe in Christ, I need to follow his commandments, I will come to church. He showed up bright and early to church! It was definitely good to see him and the smile he had on his face as he came to church was priceless!!
The room under our apartment is under construction and it can get loud at times. This past Thursday, they started working and so we decided to go to the church to do weekly planning. Definitely a miracle!! While we were at the church planning, a lady rang the doorbell and asked for help. She said she really needs Jesus Christ's help. She is a single mom, with no job. At the time she only had 15 minutes to talk with us because she was in a rush to go pick up her child from school, so we just shared some scriptures and promised that through the healing power of the Atonement, our burdens can be lifted. Since I've been here, we've felt twice that we needed to go to the church for weekly planning. Both times, someone rang the doorbell while we were there!
The Tuen Mun and Butterfly ward is splitting this upcoming week! Elder Black and I will be going to the new ward! I'm so grateful that Elder Black and I get the opportunity to work in this area at this time! It is an exciting thing to be here when the new ward is being created. New Leaders, new callings, I'm excited to be able to meet with all of the new leaders. We don't who they are yet, so this week we will be preparing the records and be sorting out the investigators and less-actives. I'm so grateful to be here right now! The work is definitely moving forward!! Good things are happening, some many miracles. I know that when we purify ourselves and dig deep, God will amplify our efforts!
Til Next Week,
Love, Elder Cederlof
