Tou Fen # 17 + pictures!!!
This week has been good. We had an awesome Specialized Training in the Forest Jungle of Nanzhuang, just east of Toufen. It was so great and a very good experience. We had training along the trail from Missionary Leaders and a great training at the top of the mountain. We read Mosiah 15:14-17 (How beautiful are the feet upon the mountain of those who publish peace and salvation). It was a very special and spirit filled training. Zhou JM got baptized!!! The 15 year old girl who we started teaching when I got here with Elder Hopper. She finally got baptized :) We met with them on Monday to follow up on their Church experience and were finally able to set a baptismal date!!! Other than that we didn't have another opportunity to meet with them, but they did come to Zhou JM's baptism and actually, they wanted to be there so bad that Lin Dx told me that he got a speeding ticket to get there on time to see what a baptism was like. I think they are pretty serious about the truthfulness of the message of the Restoration if they are willing to get a ticket. Anyway, Cai JM (Lin JM) was wearing a pretty immodest dress to the baptism and I was thinking about who I could ask to give her that talk but my prayers and my question was answered at church the next day. Lin JT walked in and they looked so naturally Mormon... :) Cai JM's dress was a little better, but they walked in and sat down and it just so happened that the place where she was sitting, was right under the AC :) and I know that she listened to the Spirit when she left the house this morning, because she brought a sweater :P. It was an answer to my prayer! They had a great time at church and the ward did a great job of fellow-shipping them. We have another follow-up visit with them tonight. Sacrament Meeting... Kevin from English Class walked in. I saw him and I don't know if he saw it but I feel like my jaws just hit the floor. He promised he would come to English Class and when I asked him why he came to church, he reminded me that he promised he would come to Church. But because we didn't get his number for some reason, we hadn't been able to remind him. He came and had a good visit. We set up a time to meet with him on Tuesday and look forward to setting a baptismal date with him. I love that kid! Chen Dx is progressing toward baptism and really wants to change. We committed him to live the Word of Wisdom this week and is excited for baptism! I am sending a few pictures :) hope you have a great time looking!
