Hello there... October 5, 2014

Well this week I don't have too much to write about. I am stoked to watch General Conference though! I heard that they did sound overs rather than subtitles.. Aiya, that means we won't be able to hear Elder Wong speak in Cantonese! Super cool though!

Well Jason is doing super well. He is working on the Duty to God program. He said he really wants to be able to go to the temple. This past fast Sunday we with the youth and leaders and Jason fasted so he will be able to be baptized on the 19th of October! Jason was loving it and also even donated to Fast Offerings. He wants to have all the blessings and is doing great. He brought his friend to church this Sunday and was so stoked. After church he said, whenever you get a new investigator, call me. I will help you teach. I am pro. haha It was great. He is feeling the joy of bringing people to Christ and not afraid to share what he believes. He is great. He reads 3 chapters of the Book of Mormon every night as well. This was his own goal and he is on top of it! Go Jason!

Honestly, this week was so quick and I am not sure what happened. Just been busy with zone stuff and what not so nothing interesting to write about. We are doing some cool things these coming months though. To use the power of prayer, as missionaries we are each night kneeling down and praying for a specific investigator from a companionship from the zone. So we have all the nights broken out and then we send out a text for who we are all praying for. It is pretty awesome knowing that there are many missionaries praying for the person. We send a little bio of them so they also know what to pray for. 
Also in December we have the goal of 65 baptisms and 65 less actives coming back to church and receiving a call. This is our mission's "gift to Christ". To help keep up the excitement we are having each district pass out at 65 Book of Mormons this month. With the rate of some of the Districts this past week, they pass out much more! It is cool to see the excitement. Also we want people to feel the power of the Book of Mormon and President always reminds us that when an investigator reads the Book of Mormon, they will overcome problems with much more strength. 
Honestly I don't know what to write about today. Hopefully next week I will. 
I know that this is the Lord's work and that He strengthens us. I know the gopsel is true!
