Well, being in the local church's Sheffield 3rd Ward has taught me a lot about church member and missionary relationships. Church members and missionaries need to have a good relationship so church investigators who get baptised have a smooth transition/hand-off from missionaries to the church members. Missionaries and church members need to do their part in introducing themselves to the newcomers and welcoming them. Especially the Chinese. Chinese love to talk to English people! They love to practise their English and be involved. So, that is one things, from many, that I have learned from my mission. Before, in high school and university, I never bothered with getting to know the missionaries haha I feel a bit bad now. So I am really glad Sis Broadhead made that gospel teaching demonstration thingy for me. Ethan, a Chinese church member, Loved it. He thought it was so clever and was like 'wow, it's homemade, and so cool.'
This past week, it was the hottest July in England in ages. I have never sweated so much since visiting Taiwan a few years ago! It got to 34 degrees (92° F) in Sheffield, we had a long day of street contacting. Good thing we were in the city and the buildings cast their shade on to us haha
Starting up the Chinese group again at church is hard work. We did a lot of street contacting and had a few funny rejections...When I say 'Hi' to them they look at me as tho they recognise me. Cuz i am Asian haha and then we just have some fun conversation(:
But this week we have been just focusing on finding new people to teach. We work hard in street contacting and inviting others to learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I fasted for this yesterday and for the Family Home Evening activity tonight we have a potential church investigator coming to the activity with her friends! So good will come from this activity(: Also we have been ringing this potential church investigator for ages and last night she rang us back and we set up an appointment with her! So miracles happen when we fast sincerely. But patience is key, but have hope all things will work out(:
