Dear family and friends,

I am getting transferred! I am leaving Hamilton to go to Kitchener with my son Elder Kendell! I am pretty excited to go there! They just baptized a couple weeks ago. It is a good area. 

This week we did a lot of Christmas stuff, we went carolling and visiting members a lot. They gave us so much food!! Too bad I am leaving the area... So many snacks and drinks. 

I skyped my family! It was awesome.

I don't know much else about the area. Let me know if you have friends there. 

I have limited time to write today cause we just has a long and nice all you can eat sushi lunch. It was super delicious.

Dear family and friends,

Merry Christmas! This week was pretty good! 

As the holidays approach, people have been returning home. So we don't really have a lot of investigators that we are teaching right now. We are working a lot with the members and they have been giving us quite a bit of referrals so that is pretty awesome. 

I'll keep you all informed! 

Keep Christ in Christmas!

Dear family and friends,

This week has been an improving week. I am feeling much better from an allergic reaction last week. 

This week we confirmed Grace. I had the opportunity to speak the blessing for the first time!(not counting the ones in the temple) Because the blessing was for her, I gave the blessing in Mandarin. I felt the Holy Spirit so strong while giving the blessing.

The Niagara YSA branch welcomes another Chinese member! It's awesome. The branch is incredibly fun and I enjoy serving here every single day. 

The exam season's ending soon. We will be really busy soon... Hopefully we'll see fruits soon.

Dear family and friends,

This week was awesome! We didn't hit Standards but that's partly because Grace was baptized! The baptism was great. We were so busy teaching lessons. We are having fun. 

It has been a spiritual week. We had Christmas dinner at the branch and we did a nativity. I was a wise-men. We thought that it would be just alright. At the end the branch president invited all of us the "bring the good news" so dressed in costume we went out from the stage to the tables and bore our testimony. It wasn't too hard for the missionaries to do it. When the member actors (Mary and Joseph) finally stood up bore their testimony about the divinity of the Savior, it was very strong and I was so grateful that the Spirit was there. Souls were touched and hearts were changed. 

I am grateful for the priesthood. We gave several blessings this week. To missionaries and investigators. The power is real. 

The work is going good!

Grace got baptized! The elders found her on the street. She is from HangZhou and she is so prepared to receive the gospel. The baptism went really well.

Dear family and friends,

This week was good! We achieved Standards! The best part was that we brought 4 investigators to church which is awesome. Grace is one of them and she is planning to be baptized this weekend! I am excited for her. We also found someone named Fiona last week and she has been reading and praying  since we invited her to do so. 

It feels like I have been in Hamilton for a long time now even though it has been 2 weeks only. The mission recently had a huge shift in focus and now we are going to work with less-active members a lot more than before.  I am pumped for this change because we have lots of recent converts in the branch and I have always wanted to strengthen the unit more instead of just bringing people in. 

We go to the sacrament meeting for the Hamilton ward then we drive to the Niagara YSA branch for the whole 3 hours. It's a long day but it is fun and worth it. YSA members are so good at befriending our investigators! 

Life is good!
