Goodness. You forget to click send on your email just one week, and you get raked-over by every single family member. Ouch... Really feeling the love here guys.Anyway, other than the lack of love from those who should care about me most, it was a good week ;) Ya, Evonne's baptismal date is still on, and as long as she keeps doing as great as she is, she should be getting baptized this weekend. We announced it in church, so it's looking good.
Also, I almost got emergency transfered. I didn't though, so it's okay. Elder Hudak (that missionary that almost joined us a few weeks ago) had to leave his area, because too many of the people there had dogs or cats, and I was going to be rotating with him. I was going to leave for 3 weeks and then come back at transfers, which would just stink, because I'd miss Evonne's baptism, and Elder Lau's last three weeks. Anyway, after president called and told me that, he called again about 10 minutes later and said "Never mind, we've got it figured out." So, I'm not leaving. Yay! However, we are pretty certain that Elder Hudak will be coming in here at the transfer, so he'll probably be my next companion.
Hadley - Man! The Testamants is my jam! I know that movie so well! As missionaries there are only a few movies that we're allowed to watch. Basically, if they have the church's stamp on them they're allowed. So we have gotten to know that movie super well. Also Meet the Mormons. Also the Restoration video. And the Doctrine and Covenants videos. I've got them memorized! Also, thanks for clarifying that that is a "frowny crying" face. I would have gone with the "sobbing been-dear-johned" face. Thanks. Also, tell mom I'M SORRY ALRIGHT!!!
Mom - Things are going well. Yep, Evonne is still on track, and Joe and Jeffery are still moving along. One of the hardest parts is just trying to keep faith in every single person on the street. It's easy to lose faith when they're smoking or look like they have a rough personality, but it's important to just remember that they are all sons and daughters of God and should be loved, even when they forget to email their family one week, or something like that. Honestly, the biggest hurdle is probably just getting them to believe the basics. For Chinese people, they usually are okay with all the commandments, but they just have a hard time with the basic belief. The days are super short. Gillian reminded me that I got my call like a year ago. Ahh! I think I'm okay as far as needing stuff from home for now, but thanks for asking. Love you!Ashleigh - Man, did you really say "what the goodness?" You're such a Utahn. Also, first date eh? Did he have a current temple recommend. Were you home by 10:30? Do you need to borrow my shotgun? Man, you should totally keep Princess. I would be totally fine with having my dogs multiply by 200% when I get home. SOOOOOOO YAAAAA!!
