I am finally moving! I am heading to Sheffield... I think I am the only Chinese speaker there...and my chinese isn't even that good hahaa And to make it better I will be with Sis Monroy, whom I lived with my first transfer in England. I will learn more Spanish than Chinese haha Sis Larson will be a Sister Training Leader in Leeds and she's watching the Chinese area there. Sis Xie is having an English speaking companion, Sis Nelson. Sis Hurst is taking over the Newcastle 1.1 area and the area is going to be English speaking. No more half Chinese and half English. I am sad to leave Newcastle, I've grown so close to the Chinese group here and my church investigators are blooming! I'll be so sad to miss their baptisms...but what matters most is I've done my bestest here and can honestly say that I have left this area better than how I found it. I am just so ecstatic to see my church investigators progress closer to Christ thru baptism. But I wish I was there to see it in person. But I know Sis Hurst and Sis Sibisi will rock this area.
The weather here has shifted dramatically. Two weeks ago we had loads of sunshine, almost too much for me and I got TAN! Who knew you can get tan in England. But this past week is so gloomy, rain and wind :( But I'll be moving down South so hopefully it'll be a bit warmer.
So just an update with our church investigators that I will be sad to leave.
Yizhi: She's the lass with a heavy duty Buddhist background and was wee bothered in changing her beliefs. She must've had a huge change of heart when she met with us. Because she accepted baptism on the first lesson! Right now, she had a great experience with the Holy Ghost. She read the 1st book of Nephi chapter 11 in the Book of Mormon. She had an overwhelming feeling she couldn't even describe. Sis Hurst and I told her it was the Holy Spirit testifying to her that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. She just wants to have a firmer faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ before she gets baptised. But she will get there. I am just overwhelmed with happiness for her cuz I've been praying for her to have an experience with the Book of Mormon.
Barry: CAme to Church and even when to church down south with his daughter! The surprise visits we give him have been working.
Wendy: Still working on improving but really has a love for the Book of Mormon, she says it's beautiful(:
Susan: She's absolutley ACE, so solid. She has a stronger testimony than i haha
Then we have two new church investigators. Curtis and Leo. Both Chinese and Sis Hurst will lead them to Baptism
That's all the time I have for email! i'll tell you all bout Sheffield next week!
LOVE YOU MUCHO!
