This week was a great one here in TKO! Melody and William were baptized--it was awesome. It has been such a blessing to work with those two and see them prepare for baptism, and luckily I remembered how to say the baptism prayer in Cantonese.
Things are going great here. It is amazing to see people make the covenant of baptism, and show that they are willing to follow Jesus Christ and take his name upon them.
Also we were able to start meeting with a new investigator named David, he's awesome. He is 17 years old and super nice. I'm so blessed to work here in this great area. Don't have too much time today so Hope Y'all have a good week.
Fun fact 1: Elder Ashton’s sister is heading to the Santiago, Chile MTC in just about a week (heading to serve in the Chile Santiago East mission) and he’s very excited for her. They will both return home about the same time.
Fun fact 2: He says his Cantonese is improving but it’s still really hard, and he knows he has a lot of work to do.
Fun fact 3: Elder Ashton has been out 6 months! 25%.
