This week was very fun, full of Chinese people doing what Chinese people.
To start this email off I'm going to give you a run down of what we do for seeking, in California. We are in a unique situation being that the majority of the population is Caucasian. So we're pretty much bound to driving to parks and "Racial Profiling". We know where ever park is in our area and we drive to all of them to see if we can find anyone. So picture this...2 dudes driving a silver Corolla very slowly through a park. We both proceed to lift up our sunglasses for better vision obviously, aggressively staring at everyone in the park to see if they are Chinese or not.
Now there are few things to knowing if they are Chinese:
1. Are the parents exercising (Swinging arms side to side), or stretching?
2. There tends to be a large pack of them.
3. The parents are having more fun on the swings than their children are.
These are all things that help us find those Chinese people we love so much. I thought you guys would be curious as to how we find Chinese people in Southern California.
This week however was quite fun. I had my Birthday on Tuesday! I received many great gifts and I'm thankful for all the love that was sent my way. Mission Birthdays are quite different but still quite exciting!
We taught 2 new people on my Birthday with both very sweet names!
First was Rono she is about our age and was very curious about our church since another member family took her to church. She had tons of questions and was very fun to teach. We hope that we will be able to teach her again since she will be going to college very quick!
Then we taught later in the evening, a lady by the name of "Apple", (I love the names that Chinese people come up with), always entertaining. She had a very good lesson except her son "Thunder"( Yes Thunder) was quite crazy so it was a little hard to teach her.
Skipping all the way to Friday after English Class, I had a good conversation with Sister Bao, one of our investigators. She randomly said to me that she wants to be baptized, because she has felt the spirit so much!
Then at Church on Sunday she said she will be leaving for China in a week... So we kindof panicked and the lesson was one Baptism. She expressed she feels ready to be baptized but her daughter keeps talking her out of it... So she may or may not be baptized this Sunday we will all know soon enough! Keep her in your prayers she is amazing and has such a pure heart!
That's enough for you guys! Hope you all had a great week, 我愛你們!!!!!
