Chopstick Hairdo

These past few days have been bad and good. We've witnessed some miracles. The best of which was with Kelly, our new investigator. She is a member referral. So we were just having a normal lesson. I offered  to say the opening prayer. I was asking HF to bless her family. I couldn't really think of what to specifically bless them with, but i got a prompting to just bless them with peace. I asked HF to have him help her understand and know that these things that we're telling her are true. After the prayer, I looked up and she was crying. She explained that I kind of like took the words right out of her mouth and that they were exactly what she needed. She kept explaining to us while she was crying that she felt so warm around us and that she didn't understand why because she had just met us! We then explained that it was the Holy Ghost...She couldn't really grasp her mind around the Holy Ghost but was totally feeling it. We then read 3 Ne 32:2-3 explaining how angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost. She kept pointing to me and saying Ha Ji Muih jauh haih tinsi haha Sister Hadley is an angel! haha It was kind of embarassing but I just really appreciated it because maybe Panda Bear (dad) is right: maybe there really are people in Hong Kong that need me. That need me to be an angel to them. So, that was a really cool experience. The Holy Ghost is REAL. Also, E has been progressing pretty good..she told us that since she has been meeting with us she feels God's power and its like he has opened her heart! Way cool. But, L.our other investigator told us she doesn't want to be baptized anymore. I cried a little bit after meeting with her, but I think just because I felt like the Savior and Heavenly Father were still just proud of me for giving her that opportunity. She will get more. You guys are awesome. I don't know when I'll see you but I really hope that as you grow and progress, I can as well!! Okay ta ta for now.

Thank you for your fasting and prayers!

Hello Family:
This week I honestly have felt your fasts for me. My anxiety this week has been lessened and I am so incredibly grateful for that and for your time and thoughts in my behalf. Thank you so much. This week we've seen some miracles! I don't remember if I talked about this, but we taught Sister L. about tithing. She works only part-time and is a single mom. She accepted to live it without a second thought.  I hope she understood what we were really saying. But, honestly it was a miracle. .I love you all and miss you a ton.

Love on Sister Kartchner and Little Mulan
 My companion is really great and loving. Definitely an answer to my prayers. I finished my first journal this week so that is an accomplishment and I think I ran five mornings with my comp! I literally almost bull dozed this Chinese man over when I was running back to my apartment. It was such a hard hit! I felt so bad. He looked as if , if i wasn't a little foreign girl trying to find my way around China, he would've clocked me haha. It was like something you'd see in a movie.

 Also found out ARia is pregos! Whoa! I wanna hear all about how she told you and your reaction and everything!

So monday was a really good day! Don't know why but after emailing I felt like i was on cloud nine and I just wanted to be a good missionary and change myself and extend charity to everyone. I think it may have been Aunts and Uncles writing to me idk...haha but it was a real good day filled with hope. It didn't last very long though haha I hate that...when you think it will stay for the rest of your life and mission and then it doesn't even last til the next mornign haha.

Tuesday I had quite a bit of nervous times during teaching and such. I don't know why this happens! But we got another Baptismal date. E. She is eighteen. Sister Johnson and I found her one day. Also Sister L. excepted the invitation to live the word of wisdom without any problem or hesitation. Wednesday, was a pretty good day. Found some answers in the scriptures during personal study.  I realized how funny my comp is. We get along pretty well and she laughs at all my dumb jokes so that's good.

We also taught A the older grandma we've been teaching. I just love her so much. She reminds me of grandma Shann because she's really strong. She has declined two invitations to get baptized but we will keep inviting her. please pray for her. I remember in a blessing that dad gave me...he specifically said I would be helping both the young and the OLD come closer to the savior. I don't know why but that stuck out to me so strongly then. I think she might be the one he was talking about.

 Sunday: was okay, but Satan is working hard because all six of our investigators in the morning canceled on coming to church with us!!!I love you and miss you a lot. too much.
