Ahorita, voy a practicar mi español entonces en mis lecciones con Michelle puedo hablar mejor. I feel like Heavenly Father has helped me a lot while recalling my spanish in lession, I've even started to read the Book of Mormon in Spanish when ever I have time. In our lessons with Michelle, I use as much Spanish as possible(: I think for the most part Michelle understands but mi compañera doesn't understand the whole picture so it's a balancing project haha Michelle is actually very open when we talked about baptism and proper priesthood authority. She is just WAY prepared.
I am glad you had a great relaxing holiday! Yous deserve it(: I think we need to ask permission if we want to go to the temple with our RCs (recent converts) for their own ordinances, but most time we don't go with them if they are doing baptisms for other people. Oh and I found out that Liu (Newcastle RC) was called to serve as the first Clerk for the newly established Chinese Branch(:
I will try my best to build Sheffield's chinese group so that they can have their own branch, we just really need to work on the less-active RCs to set up a foundation for a branch. We also need to get some Chinese families. I'll keep an eye for them while fun finding (FF). Finding/street contacting has never been so fun in my whole mission life! Sis Pugsley is just SO full of energy, it really helps me get energy as well. She's pretty mental and when you get two mental people together, you have some great miracles haha This week we've destroyed it in FF. We are hunting all the Chinese down, and there's new targets since the English learning students are all coming in this month(: Having Sis Pugsley is definitely bring miracles in the Sheffield area. This week we got 3 new church investigators and 3 new baptisms scheduled! They are all solid too! One of them is named Bin Zhao or Abel. He's so excited about God, after we (Sis Dietrich and I), met him on the street and invited him to learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ, he's had loads of miracles happen. Like his English has improved and he got his passport for travels. He is so hyped about God that we can barely get a word in to teach him, literally!(: But he has a solid testimony that God exists(: our other two new church investigators are so committed to learn more and to be baptised, the Lord prepared this area for us. I am so glad he trust me to care and nurture His Children(:
Mission President Pilkington just wants to use me til I die! I just realised a few weeks ago that I only had a 3 weeks rest between trainees. And I am so shattered, but good thing Sis pugsley brings the crazy outta me and give me energy!(:
She thought I'd be mean because of past stories of missionaries and trainers. Her mam actually sent her my blog while she was in the MTC so she knew me before she was in the mission
Yesh Our apartment is super posh...I like it tho, better than Newcastle but smaller as well.
I LOVE YOUS
