Spet 30, 2014

Dear family and friends, 

This week went well! Standards again. We almost got a baptism. We are hoping that it will happen this week. 

This week we had an activity called "A Day of the Life of a Missionary", basically members followed us around and took pictures of us. 

Since pictures are stronger than words, I'm going to just let you see the pictures.

Spet 22, 2014 Awesome week!

Dear family and friends, 

This week was great! The reason I sent this so late was because we went to Point Pelee. It is the southern most part of Canada that sticks into Lake Erie. It is amazing to see the big currents on one side of the point and calm waters on the other side. 

Anyway, this week we had Sharon and her boyfriend, Billy, at church. I am glad that we could introduce him to the gospel. He is a little hesitant but I believe that eventually he'll yield the the Spirit. 

Rachel was another one of our friends that came. She loved it. We found her through our other investigator. Referrals are just awesome. 

This week we had a general authority visit us. Elder Craig A Cardon. He gave some amazing instructions and really helped us feel the spirit of missionary work. I am glad that I have at many chances to see seventies, president of the seventies and even members of the twelve to come. 

I am very excited for the coming couple weeks.

Sept 15, 2014 Good Week!

Dear family and friends,

This week was good! We picked up our missionary. So now it's Elder Lee, Elder Sherman and Elder Kendell!

This week was really short for us because of all the driving that we have done. We confirmed Daisy this week! It went well and she bore her powerful testimony right after. 

We are enjoying the missionary work now. Bring you  more news later!

Sep 8, 2014 Baptism!

Dear family and friends,

This week was awesome! 

Our investigator Daisy Liu got baptized. The story began last year when the missionaries knocked and her mom answered. Her English wasn't good enough to understand so she asked her son Edison to answer. He got baptized on Sept 7th of last year. At the time, Daisy was not interested in the gospel and occasionally sit in the lessons. The missionaries discontinued teaching her and we finally picked her up again about 6 weeks ago. Her desire changed. She has developed great love for the Book of Mormon and her heart has changed. There were so many challenges that we overcame together. She was finally baptized yesterday, exactly a year after the baptism of Edison. 

It was just a really spiritual day at church yesterday especially because it was fast and testimony meeting. President and Sister Clayton came (an 8 hour drive round trip) to see the baptism. Everything went well and we are just so touched for the love that Heavenly Father has shown for her.

So that was the week. We expect a little drop in exciting news for a moment and we will work harder for the rest of the transfer. One of the reasons being WE ARE TRAINING!!!! We will receive a new Mandarin speaking Caucasian elder later today. So we are going to help him to have a good 0.67th transfer.

Sep 3, 2014 Good week! Excited for the next.‏

Dear family and friends,

This week was awesome. My new companion Elder Sherman is a very good missionary and I have learned lots from him. We are performing well and loving Windsor.

Our investigators are doing well in their spiritual progression. Daisy is getting baptized next week! We are so excited for her. Seems like Heavenly Father has helped us along the way to solve every problem that she had. 

We watched a movie last night with Daisy and 6 of our other investigators. At the end of the movie, Daisy bore her testimony and it was very spiritual for everyone that was there. They promised to go to her baptismal service and they are going to feel the Spirit even more there I am sure.

Everything is going well. Our only concern is that we will loose one of our best investigators soon...
because she'll become a member!
