Ni Hao Everyone! I'm Learning Mandarin ;) It has been so long! I feel like so much has happened this week but I don't know where to start! Rau and Phern are getting baptized on Saturday!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited it is finally happening! Yay!!!! I love them so so much and I am so so so happy for them! Yay! Rau is such an amazing example I am so blessed to know her! We are still teaching Ida and James, with Sister Cheung, They are so so lovely and so willing to learn! I've learned so much from them in the past couple of weeks!
I hit my 4 month mark on Saturday! That is crazy! I can't believe it has been 4 months!
This week has been all over the place, Its been hard, fun, happy, and I've learned so much! Our area is so big we've found a lot of really pretty new places this week! We've been visiting a lot of members and less-active members trying to strengthen them and get them excited about missionary work! I've learned a lot about how the spirit works, when we show up to houses randomly and it just so happened to be the perfect moment! I'm so grateful for our Heavenly Father, I know that he loves each one of us! He knows us personally and he sends us people to help us and strengthen us!
I love the Mormon Message "Hope of God's Light" Everytime I watch it I get something different out of it! Prayer is so powerful and I love that he gets his answer during a simple prayer at a church picnic! Our Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to communicate with hime! That is how we will receive our answers to questions! Through Prayer!
I love you all and I'm so grateful to have such wonderful family and friends! Thank you for all that you do! I love you so so so much!
Have a wonderful week!
Love, Sister Penrod
