My Oh My Oh My......

My oh my oh my!! What a blur of a week....So great!

The only way to describe last monday is "oh my GOODNESS!" hahaha. For p-day we went to the bat caves....an interesting experience. hahaha. Just imagine several 18-20 year old young men walking through 2 feet deep bat poop having bats flying all around us. hahaha. Gives me butterflies just thinking about it. Then we decided to see some mountains so we biked on the longest, steepest road I've ever seen. It's called "Long Dragon Road" for a reason. Cool views. They should just make a gondola up to there and we can ride down;) BUT THEN, we had 2 dinners with 2 sets of members and found a new investigator. mwhahaha the mission is so good!

Found out our doorman at our apartment is an avid Clash of Clans player. haha plays it all night long. Is that even a thing anymore?

I'm just so in love with my mission right now. We're just seeing miracles left and right. Here's one: on Thursday night we were contacting over to lesson. Pulled up next to a lady named Sister Wei getting on her scooter. She was super nice and very interested in the message of the Restoration. She set up for the very next night. We taught her more about the restoration and she and her 8 year old daughter, jun jun, came to church on Sunday!! WOW!!! And she really liked it. Blessed on all sides.

I'm loving this scripture from Mosiah 4:5-8...well actually, it's pretty long. Go read it!! But ask yourself the question: "has the knowledge of the goodness of God at this time awakened ME to a sense of my nothingness?" Then he tells us where to go from there. "Trust in the Lord...be diligent in keeping his commandments, and continue in faith..." and as we do this we'll receive salvation!! I heard a talk from Bruce R. McKonkie about how for the most part, the word "salvation" used in the scriptures is referring to exaltation, or the highest state of glory in the next life. What King Benjamin does in these verses is what we missionaries do on the daily with our brothers and sisters, helping them come to a knowledge of the goodness of God and then teaching how to use the gift of the atonement in our lives in order to receive salvation!! So cool. I know it's true.

Love you all so much!! Have a great week!

FIGHT ON!!
