Sheung Shui


Elder Dudfield


Hey Friends!

This week was another awesome week here in Sheung Shui lots of things going on this week.

We've been staying pretty busy, but one highlight of this week was that we had interviews with President Lam! Interviews are always a treat because we get to learn one on one with the mission president for a couple minutes.

One thing that came to my mind while talking with him was the magnitude of the missionary calling. That morning I was reading Elder Bednar's talk "Called to the Work" from April conference, and while I was meeting with President Lam the thought came to me that although we have been called as full time missionaries to a specific mission, we should try to magnify our calling to everybody we know including those that you keep in contact with from home and that your experience here should influence your life even beyond the mission.

Anyway, it may not seem too profound but it was cool because I was able to receive some revelation for myself and for my life. I know that God knows each one of us personally and will reveal his will for us if we seek that knowledge.

Not too much else to report on this week but I hope y'all have a fantastic week! Add Oil!
