I hope all of you had a fun and exciting week! Things were pretty normal around here. sister Luk and I are still making miracles happen with giving out a Book of Mormon a day. The Lord truly blesses you for your righteous desires. Our zone has a goal to give away these Books of Mormon and the Lord is helping us accomplish that goal. We may be out finding for an hour and not give away our Book of Mormon until literally the last minute. Or we may need to give out a Book of Mormon while travelling to and from places because we don't have time to go finding and the Lord will put the most unexpected prepared people in our paths. It is truly amazing seeing the Lord's hand in His work and knowing that as long as we are doing His work His way, He is going to bless us!
Sister Luk is doing an amazing job with training and teaching and finding. I love her so much! She is starting to talk to people more on the streets and in lessons so I am feeling less and less like a trainer and that's a good thing! She is really humble and wants to do well so that's an attribute that will take her far in life. She is giving a training in district meeting this week and she's super nervous about it because she has to give it in English, but I think this will be a really good experience for her. I have complete faith in her though! She doesn't think her English is that great, but I think she is doing amazingly well!
Our investigator Alice came to Yuen Long 1 ward for the first time yesterday so that was really exciting! Her friend Siu Mihng introduced her to the church and she goes to Yuen Long 2 so Alice has been going with her. The problem is Alice lives in Yuen Long 1 boundaries so she is supposed to come to our ward. She has been nervous to come to Yuen Long 1 because she doesn't know anyone in our ward and she already has friends in Yuen Long 2, but Siu Mihng came with her to Yuen Long 1 and some of the YSA were really welcoming. She says she likes Yuen Long 1 though so that was so good to hear!
I'm a little nervous for our recent convert A-May who was baptized back in January. She hasn't been to church in 3 weeks and the bishop has asked us to schedule her this week so he can visit her with us. She is in her 30's but her mindset is similar to that of a poh po (grandma). We have taught her all the lessons over and over and we keep encouraging her to come to church, but every time she doesn't come she says it's because she's too tired or doesn't feel well. I really don't want her to be both a recent convert and less active! Hopefully Bishop can help encourage her to come to church and make some more friends. Maybe this will be a turning point for her! :)
I hope all of you are enjoying your last few days of summer! time just flew by! Not sure when school starts again, but have fun! Love you all!
