This week was another great week here in Hong Kong. This week we were blessed to have a special meeting with yet another general authority. Either our mission just needs a lot of help or maybe the general authorities just really like us. Haha!
Elder Evans who is the Asia area president came and gave us a training, This is the 4th time he's visited while I've been a missionary. It was really good though. He taught about how we need to make better use of the Book of Mormon in the work.
The Book of Mormon is such an amazing thing, one thing that he pointed out was about how quickly and clearly the book teaches us powerful and important doctrines. He took some time to read with us and pointed out that we are taught powerful doctrines even form the first page of the book.
As far as the work goes here, it is going great! We have a couple of people working toward baptism that seem really solid and the members did a great job fellowshipping them at church.
Anyway, hope you have a great week! Add oil!
Fun fact 1: One of the sisters from his first area (TKO) bumped into him last week at the stake center. She was preparing for a wedding reception and he was teaching English class-and she was kind enough to take pictures.
Fun fact 2: He said they've got four people committed to baptism and found some new investigators last week.
Fun fact 3: He had a meeting with the local stake president this week about setting up mutual (youth group) activities in the stake. He sounded excited about that.
