We have continued to see some
huge miracles. On the street we had a lot of time to talk to people about
their culture and learn about Chinese New Year’s. The biggest miracle was
that Tyler (hsk ward) finally got baptized! Elder Black and I found him
back when we were serving in Tuen Mun. Fortunately, living with the Hsk
elders, we could continuously get updates on how he was doing! Throughout
all the problems and trials he has had to go through in order to be
baptized he has finally made it! He put his trust in the Lord's promise as
contained in 1 Nephi 3, and received the answers he needed.
The next big miracle is with Kelvin. He has committed to quit smoking! It's
definitely going to be a challenge for him but he can do it! We set a plan
with him a couple weeks ago, but he still has been struggling, so we went
over with him what worked and what didn't and we came to realize very
quickly that when he actually did what the Lord, through us, invited him to
do-read the scriptures/pray when he had the feeling to smoke- he didn't
smoke. However, he didn't do that every time, therefore hasn't quit
smoking. We talked about the reasons behind the things we were sharing and
he committed to pray and/or read when he feels like he needs to smoke.
A-yung was confirmed this past Sunday! So awesome! The correlation
throughout the leaders is impressive! Before, she and Nicole were confirmed;
they already had home and visiting teachers! Bro. Tsang is playing a huge
role in pushing this work forward! So grateful for him!
The past week's "deep clean" definitely brought an inviting
spirit! It seriously was a good feeling to clean the entire apartment from
the ceiling down. When thinking back about the things I've learned about
cleanliness and the fact that the home can be as sacred as the temple, but
it needs to be as CLEAN as the temple as well. I've set some goals for my
home now, as well as future home, to be able to maintain that level of
cleanliness in order to have my home feel as sacred as the temple.
Tung Family, the family that came to the church by themselves, seemed to
have vanished. We called and texted them to no response, until Sunday! Bro.
Tung texted us back and said he had some medical issues so he won't be able
to meet for a couple weeks. Not being able to meet for a couple weeks is
the bad news, but the good news is that they still have strong desire to
learn more about these things! It is all in God's hands. His timing is
