Visited Kwun Tong

It's been a good week, did a lot of good missionary work this week. Just barely went to Kwun Tong to visit some people before I leave. It's super weird going back to an old area. Also celebrated Elder Williams birthday with him, chenged us all out to a nice pizza place. Elder Williams is awesome.

We're teaching a lot lately so everything is kind of blurring together. We're working with the most solid people of my mission so far. I'm super happy and grateful. Elder Dale and I just get along so well that we find and teach really well together, it's awesome. Not sure what else to tell you about, things are just awesome right now.

Keep up the good work. Madie will be great, a mission is going to be good for her. Thanks for Madie's email. I'll email her and see how she's doing next week? I'll fill out the thing now.

Advice: do your best with what you've got, get your homework and stuff done. Think about a mission.

Anything else: Why are you wearing trousers with holes in them? Is that in again? Weird.

It's weird to think that you've already done all our spring time traditions like the easter egg hunt and stuff. Hope conference is good for all of you, I've still got a couple weeks till I see it. That's about it for this week, I'm really out of stuff to talk about, so have a fun week, I love all of you and hope you have a good week.

Cool Crew

Yeah it's temple day. Super good. It's nice having so many good friends in my district to go to the temple with. Also had a great week, working with so many solid people, taught some really good lessons. I'll tell you some of the cool stories when I get back. Elder Dale and I are super awesome together, we're getting tons of good success and helping lots of people feel the spirit.

Saw pictures of Madie's farewell, that's so crazy how fast that happened. Feels like she just barely got her call. That's awesome that she's going. Also saw Alex with the poopy pants, I think he'll make good use of them. It's awesome to see how good everyone is doing. After email we're going shopping to get some stuff, maybe some cool souvenirs for you guys.

Looks like you had a good week this week, make sure I get Madie's missionary email so I can email her while she's in the MTC and I'm in HK. That would be cool. I like the pics, those tiger poopy pants will be the best things Alex has ever worn. I'm glad you're having fun and doing well. I'm doing awesome, being companions with a Brit is the best. Elder Dale and I are super chill together and find and teach really well together as well. It's awesome. Missions are awesome. I'll fill out the thingy now.

Story: We were finding on the street when we ran into Stefano, who is super chill and already knew about us cause his good friend is Frank! So now our investigators are fellowshipping our investigators! We've got a cool crew that were already friends before, Frank, Tong boy, and now Stefano. Super cool.

Not trunky, just happy!

Had another great week this week, did a lot of good stuff and helped a lot of people. Super happy week. It's weird to think that Madie's farewell is coming up so soon. Feel free to give alex the tiger poopy pants whenever. I should be good on stuff and money, so don't worry about that. Don't worry about me, I should be set. Can't believe how fast time is going by, especially for you guys, Jugs growing up, Honey's pretty much already grown up, Lou is like the same.

I'm super happy right now, Elder Dale is awesome and we just barely went on a cool hike with one of our investigators, brother yeung. Super chill hike. Also, went to a cool fireside last night where this one Elder Christianson talked about economics and the gospel. It was pretty appropriate for Hong Kong. That's weird that you got the travel plans already, I'm not looking forward to getting mine when the time comes. Don't worry about me, I'm working hard and having fun, hoping you are too. I love you all and hope you have a great week!

Sorry I don't write much, I'm just not good at typing. I'll do my best today. Sounds like school is going good for you, you'll have to let me know how to get into byu salt lake center now that you're going. What'd you think of President hawks's talk? I'll fill out the thing now.

Investigators: Isaac, Frank, Philip, Brother Yeung, Sister Tam, Kenneth, Noel.
Food: not much new, my favorite place to eat right now is Tung Chung curry. The owners and workers there love us.
Feeling: Happy, healthy, doesn't feel like the end to me. Not the way I was thinking at least. Not trunky, just happy.
Weather: really nice today.
Advice: Keep it up, keep the faith, keep being happy.
Story: nothing too specific stories to tell this week. One thing that's cool is how good we're doing, Elder Dale and I are doing awesome together.
PIctures: ok.

Super Happy

Had an amazing week this week, one of the best of my mission. We did so much good this week and got so much done. We also gave talks in sacrament, which went really well. Elder Dale and I are getting along ridiculously well and we are super powerful together. We got six investigators to church this week, which is super good for hong kong, which was super meaningful cause we've been working hard and love everyone so much it was cool to see everyone at church. Meant a lot to us. I'll send some pics of me and Elder Dale. Yeah so much crazy awesome stuff happened this week it's hard to know where to start. Super happy, I love Tung Chung

Also, Elder Peterson and I are hanging out together this p-day, going on a cool hike.

I'm glad home is happy and that Marie and Deloy are doing alright. I'm not sure if what you went to was the korean bbq I'm used to in HK, we kind of just cook meat at a hubcap thing on a table. We'll see about it. Well that's about it this week, hope y'alls have a great week!

Weird to see snow. Skiing will be fun when I'm back, hope you had fun this week skiing, hope you can get through all the homework. I forgot how much gas costs, wasn't it like 3 bucks a gallon when I left? I don't even remember how america money works. I'll fill out the thing now.
For pday: Hiking with Elder Peterson.
Next temple day: sometime in mid to late march.
Elder Dale: is awesome. And a goofball.

Is Chinese New Year over?: yes.
Weather:pleasant, a little cloudy today but it looks like it's clearing out.
Advice: stay awesome, don't stress.
Story: Had a lot of cool things happen on the street this week. One cool thing was finding Philip, we met him on the street, got him sat down on a bench and shared a message with him. Also, a member was walking past us when we pulled him back and he taught with us too. That was super fun. Philip came to church this week too.

Big change this week, Elder Koochin is moving to causeway bay and it looks like I'm finishing here in Tung Chung. My new companion is awesome, his name is Elder Dale and he's from Yorkshire, England! He's one transfer behind Elder Buss, so he's been out in hk for about 9 months so he's got experience.. Just moved from macau. He's so ridiculously cool, super motivated and happy and hardworking, love that. Looks like it's going to be a good move. We like a lot of the same stuff too so it's going to be a blast. We've got some good people we're working with too like Frank and Isaac so I'm happy. Also, Elder Ballard came to HK this last week as well, super boss.

Home sounds pretty good, It's cool that Madie has gone through the temple now, it's a cool thought.

It's amazing all the cool things that are going on now, also, Elder peterson is in my district now, so I'm a happy boy. Boss companion. Best friend in the district, good stuff going on in the area, can't complain.

Hope home is doing good, tell Madie I'm proud of her for being awesome. I'm glad you're all doing alright, keep up the good work, I love you all and I'll hear from you soon.

Good week this week, got a new comp. this last week, he's from the U.K.!!! Elder Dale is a boss, we're going to tear it up this move. already had a lot of cool stuff happen this last week, lots of cool success and Elder Ballard came here and gave a talk to the missionaries and to the members too. Super amazing. Sorry my emails are getting shorter, I'm just not sure what to write anymore. I'll fill out your thing now.
Moves: Still in Tung chung, my new companion is Elder Dale, this boss lad from Yorkshire.
For pday: probably just going on a hike.
Best thing this week: Elder Dale and Elder Ballard
Wearing: Blue stripey tie
Investigators: Isaac, sister Tam and her son keneth, Frank, and now his friend tom.
Food: Nothing much new Had this cool chinese new year stuff called poon choi last monday. I'll send pics.
Weather: nice, getting warmer.
Advice: Keep up the good work, keep learning and growing and having fun.
Story: when we went to the second elder Ballard meeting (the one for the members, we brought Isaac and Frank and then frank brings his friend tom , which was a surprise for us. So we get there and tom seems pretty just cool guy, doesn't talk much, but then elder Ballard gets going on about the Restoration and Plan of Salvation stuff and tom just sits there taking in the bossness of it all. After he finished Elder Dale turns to him and asked what he thinks and tom said it was amazing, then turns to me and asks, "where can I get a Book of Mormon?" Boom. coolest thing I've ever seen.
Pictures: ok one is poon choi and the other is the wan chai chapel lobby after The Elder Ballard meeting with the members.
Anything else: might come home with a bit of a British accent.
Love, Elder Osborne
