So this week was like a flash and a half blink of my eye. Last Monday was spent with a little shopping and basking in all the Chinese New Year decor. The malls were packed with anxious Chinese people just making their last 50 purchases before the new year. We went shopping at the grocery store TASTE which is basically target meets costco China edition. In what may well be the best impulse buy made last week I bought Turkish Delights. Thanks for the inspiration CS Lewis and Edmund. We also received our brand new and approved by church headquarters split name tags. We gave three cheers of hip hip hooray (x3)
Yesterday we only had Sacrament meeting. As we were greeting everyone Vanessa, Tang Jimuih, Mak-mak and LEUNG HINGDAIH all came. Leung Hingdaih has NEVER COME TO CHURCH. he's the one we've been teaching for the past couple of months but we've only been able to teach him about three times. His wife and grown three daughters are all members but as I looked down the road and saw him pushing his wife to church tears welled up in my eyes. It was a New Year miracle! The Holy Ghost is softening his heart and i can't WAIT to hear the story of how he ended up there. Such a good day.
In closing I want to share my testimony. I know this church is true. It's amazing--even though almost all our investigators and less-actives are in Mainland for New year, The Lord has still entrusted us with so much to do. I read a talk recently that has got me thinking. If I was to receive a letter from myself in the pre mortal life, what would it say and how would I change. As I think about that, it gives me a greater resolve to work harder, past tired, and be better. To be selfless and know that GOD IS THERE. He hears all of our prayers. I know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real. I can't wait to share with you all the many things I have learned about the Atonement here in Hong Kong. I love repentance. This gospel is perfect.
I love you all so much. Have a wonderful week. Thank you for all your prayers, nice words, kind thoughts and unending thoughtfulness. Love you!!!!!!!!
Love, Paak Jimuih
