This week has been amazing! There are so many miracle that have happened!
But here are a few that I felt was special enough to share with President
Day in my email to him:
We got in contact with Hu Jiemei from the less active
list you gave us a couple of weeks ago. She was willing to let us baifang
(拜訪) her and her family. We found that she has a 9 year old daughter who
hasn’t been baptized, and we asked her if she had a desire to. At first she
was hesitant, but after a bit of explaining to her about the blessing of
baptism, we set a date for March 28th! They came to church on Sunday, and
our Branch President announced that Hu Liting will be baptized in 2 weeks!
Our investigator, Wanlu, has been hesitant on being
baptized for a while. She has all the fellowship in the world…her sister
is a recent convert, all of the friends are members, she goes to every
single YW/YM activity, and she’s dating the Branch President’s son. But we
set a goal baptism date with her anyway for the 28th. When we asked if that
would be a good day for her to get baptized, she said “No…that is the
weekend before finals”…so I asked “What about the 21st?” she accepted!!!
I was so surprised that I jumped and screamed of excitement because I didn’t
expect her to accept our invitation! Then I hugged her and asked if she was
excited and she said “Yes I am!” Total miracle!
We met some Jehovah’s witnesses while street contacting
this week. I’ve never seen them before. They just stand in one spot with a
stand full of their pamphlets, waiting for people to ask about the church.
We talked to them for a bit and gave them our pamphlets, then proceeded to
contact in front of them. Oh well…:)
But this week was full of challenges and miracles. it
went by so fast! President Day, it was so good seeing you in our branch
juhui (聚會)! Sister Huang and I have missed you so much!
