Happy Chinese New Year
What's A Valentines Day?
Just starting this email off by acknowledging that Valentines day is super irrelevant on the mission, however it's almost CHINESE NEW YEAR! Which means it will be super difficult to meet with anyone, but that is ok!!
This week was quite crazy and full of Chinese:
Wednesday: Elder Crowther and I did a split. Elder Crowther went and taught a person by the name of Amy. She is the wife of a member in another ward. He is like a 70 year old white man and she is like a 25 year old Asian! So that was interesting, however the lesson went really well. She has a few concerns such as she didn't like church because she couldn't understand it. But she was super stoked to meet our Chinese group on Sunday Whoot!! Whoot!!
Thursday: Thursday was quite fun too! We went with a less active to teach the Wang family she had referred to us. They only had like 30 mins so we couldn't teach as much as we would have liked too. But they were still super cool and looking to come closer to God so we will keep you updated on them! Then that night we had dinner at a Chinese home. It was actually the parents of some kids we teach in our English class, so they were non members. They are super cool, we had squid which was interesting but still a good meal!
Saturday: We wen't on exchanges with the AP's so... ENGLISH LAND!! It was an alright day, we taught a super awesome family. The kids were LOVING the Book of Mormon, even after the lesson ended the kids kept showing verses to the dad. I hope they work out, it was super weird to teach in English... I found it harder than a Chinese lesson!
We had church as usual, we had Sara, Angela and Amy all there! They all liked it, especially Amy. She had been attending the other ward that whole time, and her English wasn't that good. So she was super stoked to have met our Chinese group!
That night we had the opportunity of going over to Yutong's house (Investigator). He is doing super good he is almost through 1 Nephi! We taught him the Importance of the Sabbath day and why we need to keep it Holy. He loved it and committed to keeping it. He promised us he would be at church next Sunday. Right before we left he gave us a ton of Chinese Chips, I'm too scared to eat them so they are on my desk!
Overall great week, time is flying by so fast im freaking out!
Have a great week 我爱你们!!!

I always ♥LOVE♥ when Ben shares some thoughts with us about things that are happening at home. It warms my heart to know that even though he is SOOO busy out in the field doing the Lord's he let's us know that we are not too far from him thoughts and prayers.
I read a scripture the other day that I thought was awesome.
Hebrews read the JST footnote at the bottom. "for without sufferings they could not be mad perfect". I thought that was very true, if this life was perfect we wouldn't get much from it!
