Another Fantastic Week

Hey y'all,

This week was another good one here in TKO. Not a lot really happened but it was still good.

This week we were at English class and a new person came and we scheduled to teach her the next day about the Gospel. It was pretty neat; the next day we had one of the longest lessons I've ever been in. It lasted for 2 hours and 15 minutes. We found out that she is from mainland, so before she didn't really believe in anything, but now that she came here she started to think that religion may be a good influence in her life. It is so cool to see how the Lord prepares people to hear the Gospel. She said that she has been trying to find a job but other less qualified people are getting the jobs she's applying to, so because she is unemployed right now she had a ton of free time so that gave her an opportunity to come to English class and meet us missionaries. Sadly for us, she lives in Po Lam area so we'll turn her over next week, but it was a cool experience nonetheless.

Also, thank you all for sending letters I really appreciate them! And also, in case you missed it, the Light the World campaign is starting, so check it out and give it a try. It's a great way to help others feel the light of Christ.

Hope you have a good week! Add oil!

Fun fact 1: The Light the World campaign, is an effort by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to encourage people to reach out and lift others during the holiday season. They have a scripture and a video along with ideas on ways to help others every day from Dec 1-25 listed at

Fun fact 2: Elder Ashton has been in the TKO ward/area since he arrived in Hong Kong in March (so almost 9 months), but he says that in their mission they don't switch quite as often as some other missions might- and he LOVES his TKO ward family.
