"And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things for myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety? 46. Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God... 48. I say unto you, that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name. 49. And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren."
-Alma 5:45-46,48-49
"Come unto Christ and be perfected in him and deny yourselves of all ungodliness."

救主 Service

Hey all!
This week was not too shabby!
It rained for half the week, and I even made Sister Gong bike in it
for a little while haha she did not like me after that! It was hard to
find people because of the rain and I guess the doors we knocked on
were just not sympathetic to soaking wet missionaries in their house.
Oh well what can you do? Well we learned Chinese and English! Sister
Gong is super adorable. English is so difficult but she is trying so
hard! I sneezed the other night and she said, excuse me. We were also
watching a Joseph Smith video and she said, I love you Joseph Smith.
And then when we were walking and I asked her if she liked music she
said I love you music!
I love my companion so much and though it's so hard to talk with each
other and communicate I learn that there is one language that we all
speak and that is service. Everyday this week I looked for every
possible way I could serve my companion, to make her feel comfortable
about English work and the language. It worked too! We were both
smiling and having fun, understanding that these acts show each other
that we love each other. I'm so grateful for the Savior and his
perfect example of service and charity. I love what Sister Marriot
said in the women's general broadcast, "Love is making space in your
life for someone else." I hope we all can follow the Savior’s example
this week and serve those around us, whether a neighbor, a family
member or stranger, everyone is going through something and can always
benefit from the love that comes through service.

Sister Gong made me some Egg and Seaweed Soup and it was delicious!
