Mission Scripture

Wherefore, be of good cheer, and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you; and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the living God, that I was, that I am, and that I am to come.

D&C 68:6

hi guys how's everyone doing? this week was fine. will you pray for Aida, Julian, Michelle, and Heaven. Yes we are teaching a 13 yr old girl named Heaven. That's perfect huh! She's really cute but a little gothic.. lives with just her dad, her dad is 100% supportive but doesnt want to learn for himself. well all 4 of those people didnt come to church yeterday but we did have 3 investigators there. this guy at the bike store frank, his friend james (those are the 2 guys we went to lunch with last monday) james came to church. and last week at lunch he was drinking alot of alcholic beverages so we gave him a word of wisdom pamplet and well he obviously didnt read it cause he showed up to church yesterday and hmmm how do i say this. you couldn't get too close too him cause his breath smelled like beer! ah!! i've never had an investigator come to church drunk. the other 2 were kedesha's family. she is in NY but her 10 yr old daughter and her little bro who i think is 11, they came. Sister Latty (who is Kedesha's co-worker and orignally invited her and picks her up every week) she went and picked them up yesterday. so that was good to have 3. this satruday morning we have a baptism in the ward.. you know jordan collie. well he has a friend named jordan nunez (who is 14) and they've known each other for life. jordan n was at jordan c's house once and we taught him.. he wanted to continue going to church so he has but the homestead south elders taught him cause he lives 2 blocks out of our area! lame. but so happy he's getting baptized saturday, and how cool the jordan is already being a missionary! we had a training by my zone leader this week about sacrifice.. so i'm focusing a lot on what i can sacrifice. it hasnt been easy but i am giving up a a few things for something i want more.. like i give up some journal writing time at night so i can get more sleep.. cause i need it! but i am still writing in my journal every day. a few days ago we were driving and i asked sister crane to call rickie to see how he's doing and make sure he got connected with missionaries in NY. while the phone was ringing i pulled over because i saw ...rickie.. walking down the street! dont know if he lied to us or what but he said his trip got pushed back. man people here are so weird. i met my first person from hong kong this week. she spoke some english but we ordered her a BOM in her kantonese language. only problem is, she's a jehova's witness and already gets the watchtower in her language! i got a little sick this week and threw up 2 nights, i think it is cause i'm getting a little stressed when i look at a calendar.. but i'm ok and know i just need to calm down. ha. my big announcement is that, i cooked a whole pound of raw hamburger for my first time this week. wow. it was ssick. sure hope i dont have to do that often in my lifetime. yucky. michelle and julian.. well i love going over there every week they feed us and we have a lesson but this week we wanted to extend may 22 but it just didnt happen and now i feel so bad still, like the worst missionary ever and if i leave homestead and julian isnt baptized i'll be sad for the rest of my life.. so i pray that this week we will have success! yesterday for fast sunday.. i know many of you fast for me (and for that I THANK YOU!) but i wanted to do it too so i did a gratitude fast because i am so grateful for each of you. next week mon-wed i will be on exchanges. sister denson is coming down here and i am so happy! the coral reef north elders gave Aida a blessing this week and it helped her a lot.. she is for sure all set to get baptized on the 15 yay! saturday was a long day, we only got to see 3 out of our 18 plans and backups. BUT we had something great happen. there is this lady, Ionie Moore, who got baptized about 9 months ago. She's been once since she was confirmed. we go visit her weekly or every other and she always says she'll come but never does!! well we were there satrday, and we had her call a member to come pick her up for sunday. when she called sister samways and she said "i want to go to church'... i almost cried it was so happy for me, and how great when she walked in (late and sat front center front row) on sunday, i was in the back and so happy. it sure is nice when i get to see results from all the work i'm doing here. i look forward to talking to you all on next sunday and hope you have a really good week. xoxoxoxoxoxo
