July 29, 2014 Week 2 in Windsor‏

Dear family and friends,

The second week here was great! The area is still going through a big change right now. A lot of the people that we have been in contact with are returning to China for the Summer, including our recent convert, Sharon. So it will be a little bit harder to keep up the business. 

This week something really cool happened. We decided to "clean up" the ward list by visiting all of the less active members that were Chinese. We visited a lot of places and most of the Chinese students that has been baptised left the address already. We were pretty disappointed but we kept trying.  At the end of the day there was a name on the list: Simon. All we got about him is that he works in a store along a street. We tried a couple ones and they were all owned by non-Chinese. We were about to give up as we drove past a store. We were about to give up but suddenly a Chinese person walked out. We talked to him and confirmed that it was him. He has been lost for many years now. We talked and expressed our care for him. 

It was Heavenly Father's will right then that he will walk out of his store as we were almost going to give up. How amazing!

Anyway, that was the week. Until next time!

Dear family and friends,

My first week in Windsor was great! Elder Howell and I get along well and we working working hard to improve the area! Usually you only find Chinese around the university. This week we found a couple new people to teach which is exciting. A lot of the students here go home for the summer. So we will see if we can find and teach those who are staying in Windsor. 

Windsor is a pretty small city with not a whole lot of Chinese people. The people here live slower lives. It feels kind of like going on a vacation. 

Our members are awesome here. I've already been fed three times and later again tonight. This is going to be a memorable time.

July 14, 2014 Transfer! Windsor!‏

Dear family and friends,

How is everyone doing?

The day has come that I am finally leaving the Greater Toronto Area. I have been assigned to labor in Windsor, Ontario, Chinese speaking. It will be my 3rd area in the field. I am super excited and I am a bit sad at the same time that I have to leave the people that I have met here and love. 

Aaron is getting baptized in less than two weeks and I am so happy for him even though I won't get a chance to see it actually happen. The fruits of the labor is so sweet!

Anyway, I'll tell you a little bit about the new area that I'll be going to. This area is pretty new, It has only been around for 3-4 transfers. Windsor is just across the Detroit river from Detroit. It is about a 4 hour drive from Toronto. I will work with both Cantonese and Mandarin speakers. My new companion, Elder Howell, will be sowing and reaping in Mandarin.

Summer and fall is especially great for missionary work. I am so grateful that Heavenly Father gave me this chance to serve him.

Dear family and friends,

The week was good! we taught a lot of lessons again even though we slowed down comparing with last week. 

We met the new president! President and Sister Clayton are from California and they are amazing leaders and teachers. I miss President Scott but I am excited to serve with President Clayton for more than a year.

Time flies and next transfer I will have only 1 year left. I thank the support from you and our Heavenly Father. I have truly learned a lot and I am looking forward to the 2nd year. Time to rise and shine and work even harder!
