God Knows Me:)

Our Harry Potter themed English Class Party
Sister Meyers and my reaction when we heard that we will be staying together for my last transfer!!
After listening to the Worldwide Missionary Broadcast we treated ourselves to Pizza Hut to celebrate:)
Dear Family and Friends,

TEACH REPENTANCE AND BAPTIZE CONVERTS! Something Sister Meyers and I do a lot now is invite people to be baptized AND repent on the street. It's really fun. I'm also learning a lot about boldness. If the Spirit tells you to say something... just say it! It might catch people off guard right now, but if it's God's plan don't fight it. 

One of the most important lessons I've learned this week is that God knows me. I think the past week I have just been reflecting on my mission and realizing how perfect it has been. My companions, my areas, my ward, my investigators have all been exactly what I needed at the time I encountered them. 

Mom asked me what our Sunday's are like. This week was super super super busy and it was a delight! We have church at 8:30-11:30 and it's great. then we just go out and chuan jiao like any other day. Yesterday we had a lesson before church, 3 after church and then we attended the other ward's sacrament meeting with 2 of our investigators. It was a little bit crazy, but Sister Meyers and I both really love being busy. 

Chinese New Year:  (Each year during Chinese New Year, the missionaries have opportunities to share special messages with the members, who also invite their non-member friends over.) Here is our plan for our message this year.  So we have created a monkey trap and made our red envelopes. We'll be sharing the monkey trap story and giving them red envelopes. It's not going to be nearly as exciting as the dragon head last year :) haha but we're still doing our best to participate! So we're going to use the monkey traps and as an analogy for repentance. We're going to talk about how when we sin we grab that banana and then we have to let go one finger at a time and then we're going to explain the steps of repentance. 

I testify that Jesus is the Christ. One of my goals for my last transfer is to re-memorize The Living Christ. It's been really fun to have Sister Meyers coach me through it. I really love the Spirit that comes each time you recite or read the Apostle's testimonies. I love this gospel. I love playing for Team Jesus. I'm thankful for my Heavenly Father and all that He does for me. 

Thank you for all of the support and prayers and love.
