Good Week

This was a really good week, Elder Williams and I are bossing it up here. We got a baptism yesterday and the other Elders in our apartment (Staheli and Pincock) got one too. So between the two wards in our church building we got two baptisms. Both of them found the church by just walking into the Wan Chai chapel. Self refferals are awesome. Our invesigator, Randy, is 27 and he started out with a pretty good Christian background and had a lot of family problems cause his parents are separated and "baai san"(ancestor worshipers) so he didn't like that and they don't like him not liking that. But the gospel has helped and comforted him a ton, he is way happier now than we first met him in a turnover lesson from another set of Elders. He read the entire Book of Mormon, D&C and Pearl of Great Price in 31 days. He did have quite a bit of free time cause he hurt his foot working, but that's still really boss. The other convert, Ada, Also walked into the Wan Chai building (you should look it up, it's the 2nd most expensive building in the church, it's a church disguised as a skyscraper) She started out super weird and always wanted to speak English with everyone, even the Chinese members and was struggling a bit from coming back to Hong Kong after getting divorced from an English guy. After every lesson Elders Staheli and Pincock taught her she got more and more normal and happier. All this really happened at the same time a little over a month ago. It's been a really cool experience. 

Sorry I forgot to tell you last week, I withdrew some money cause I'm thinking about getting a suit for my year mark, my clothes are holding up pretty good, but my suits and shirts aren't quite as new and nice as they used to be. Finding for almost a year will do that though. The members and especially converts in China have way more opposition from all sides and it's a miracle anyone here is active at all, let alone all the new people we find. Tell the fam that I love and miss them. Also, can you try to get my updates/pictures of how Zach and Jake and other people are doing. It'd be nice to know.

 Tell Grandma that she is welcome to send the movies but doesn't need to rush. Elder Williams already got them for his birthday, but they would be nice to have when we're not companions anymore. That's about it this week, we'll see how stuff and conference goes, all the missionaries are pumped  for conference again. Gotta love it:) things are going good, I love you and a I'll hear from you soon.
