Love over everything


Crazy p-days as of late. We have been doing lots of service for the special Olympics in town. So I don’t have time again to email.  But know I am still doing work. I love it, I love peaching, I love talking with people every minute I can. It's just changed my whole life.

I got a fresh cut for the airport but I am going to put this doo to work for one more week. If I don’t finish strong, I just would be showing ingratitude for the miracles that Father has given me these past two years, I couldn't do that. One more week to give it all to him.

Love you all! I still can't believe Amanda is married

stuff, stuff, stuff

So much stuff be going on!! baby blessings, wedding prep, new canopies and fence posts in the backyard!!

Time has just been flying by. It makes me think of my first transfer. I felt like my first transfer was like 6 months long. But after that it was super super fast.

So our golden investigator turned golden brown because he told his mom that is in china about learning and she flipped. She was going to like have him deported to make sure he didn't get baptized. ahhhh, he was going to be baptized and confirmed on my last Sunday!! but don't worry, continue in faith and good things will come. 

I can feel the Lord has a reason for me being here in this time in July, it may be to meet certain members here, it may be to teach certain people here, I don't really know, but I am praying to find out and working to find out. 

Congrats again to Amanda!!! I hope you have chocolate fountains and Coke in glass bottles galore at your wedding!!!

I had my last ZTM and Zone conference this past week, they were both really emotional. Its hard to express in an email how grateful I am that I came out.

But hey! I love you guys! Imma keep hittin that pavement! You guys keep hittin those scriptures and get those Korean girls baptized! talk to Jake Westbrook, he served in Korea and should be back by now!

love you!

apricot trees

Hey hey hey!!!

So, it was really funny being in LA for so long because you can always see the movies that will come out. And for 2 years I saw moveis that I wouldn't be able to see, and just the other day I saw a movie that had a release date after I go home. It was kind of a scary realization.

okay, enough of that trunkiness

So basically the talk of Church was the gay marriage stuff, which I thought was a little weird. We had people talking about all kinds of things, like this is the end of the world, second coming is upon us and etc. What I was thinking was, for sure we need to be aware of this change and need to react accordingly, but I think that this is a tool from satan to distract people. I think it would be really bad of people got so caught up in fighting some legal decision and weren't inviting people to feel the truth of the restored gospel in order to come closer to Jesus Christ. We as a church have always had the responsibility to help people find that, and to be examples of that to them. We are always going to be weird, we are always going to be counter culture, but the Savior has promised that as we choose to follow Gods laws, He will stand by us. Also, the Savior himself was counter-culture, but he brought the truth, and that's all that really mattered.

So do you remember Regina Huang? She was baptized about a year and a half ago. SO her mom came to visit from Guang Zhou and she started  taking the lessons and now she will be baptized. yeah!!!! Huge miracles!! Its just amazing how the gospel spreads, and its amazing to see these ripple effects. I am so grateful for the bonds I have made out here with these converts (that are not so recent) I can feel that it runs a lot deeper than a couple years, but ions. I am grateful to where I came from and where my potential and nature came from, and it just makes it even better looking into someones eyes and knowing that we came from the same place.

Well, word on the street is my older sister is getting married next week. I will be there in spirit. ALSO the 17th is my companions birthday!!! whoo!! I hope your thinking about my li'l Asian companion on your wedding day!!

love you guys
