Tsing Yi! A, A-Yan, Stinky Tofu, Black Rain, JJ, Brother F.and Aunt Lori‏

It has felt like a really long week with moving into a new area with new people and a new companion. My companion is Sister Law. She is a native Hong Kongian. I thought she was shorter than me. She is the girliest girl Ithink I have ever met.  Her english is perfect, and so we have been mostly communicating using english.  But the first day we just spoke all cantonese so hopefullly I can keep that up. I think you are right, I really need to treasure this month with her and do all I can to really learn the language. She says my Cantonese is really good so she has been giving me some good motivation to learn more. But she also really likes speaking english. Its her birthday today so you can send her an email. 

Tsing Yi is an island and so we walk along the pier almost everyday. It is so beautiful. It's pretty small so hopefully I can learn my way around within a month. The ward is pretty tiny but so far they are all really nice. Sister Law told me that Tsing Yi was built for the crazy people a long time ago so that is why the landscape is beautiful and relaxing. ha.

A. was one of the first investigators I taught here. We have a lot more lessons than in Sha Tin. She is sooooo special to me already. and I just have this huge love for her. She is a middle-aged woman and is pretty lonely. She has a dog that she loves very much named Saa Gaa but is sick and old. So yeah our first lesson was just kind of very sad and I felt pretty bad for her, but the next day she came to our bread activity that Sister Law organized, and she looked just a teeny tiny bit more happy. We are best friends already. Haha when she was walking out the door I told her how happy I was to meet her and she turned around and smiled and said: I really like you:) haha she is so cute. Pray for A.

Stinky Tofu because Sister Law fed me stinky tofu and it smelled like death, but was worth the experience.

Black rain  because it has been raining cats and dogs here. There are different levels of rain. Black is the worst and you can't leave your house when we have black, but i don't know if it got that bad. We were soaking wet everyday though!

J.J. is our less-active's son. He almost died when he was seven years old. Their family attended a church activity and he fell into the pool but couldn't swim so passed out for 23 hours. He cannot do anything on his own and his mom just takes care of him all the day long. It is kind of heartbreaking. But I got to meet them and we got to sing to them. I am a child of God. I sang english and sister law sang chinese. it was so good and the spirit was strong. 

So Aunt Lori's convert Brother F. is in my bishopbric! We went and had dinner with him and his wife and when he told me I almost cried! It was so cool and he showed me pictures of Aunt Lori.

So it has been a long but good week. We had interviews with President Hawks and he told me that it really felt right to send me here. So I think I've already felt that same way as well. I. from Sha Tin accepted a baptismal date in July.  Please pray for her.
