Tae Tuan Do

This past week was a complete blur! But it was the best!!!

So, we'll start with the major exciting things from this past week. TUAN GOT BAPTIZED!!! It was the best thing ever! So I told you that he has been investigating for more than 6 years?? Well during that time he accumulated like a bajillion friends. So there were a ton of people there! We ended up having to move it into the chapel so that we could fit everyone in there. Super awesome! Ha all of the people who spoke told us how lucky we were to be able to be the missionaries that got to see him be baptized. Just think 6 years of meeting with the missionaries... that would be a ton! But it was also a very humbling experience cause without all those contacts, without all the fellowship, without everyone else Tuan wouldn't have gained the rock solid testimony that he has. After the actual ordinance and everything had taken place Tuan wanted to bear his testimony.  It was super sweet. Yesterday was his confirmation and it was awesome as well. Ha he even received the priesthood and got a temple recommend. He's just going to be the best member ever! So excited to see where he goes cause he has such a solid testimony and wants to share it with everyone now.

Dawsyn got baptized on Saturday. For the past couple weeks we have been teaching her the lessons.


Tuan again... he's so happy :)​


Kyndal... one of our YW

So ya, that was the high point of the week! But there were some other fun things that happened as well! We picked up 2 new investigators this week. So Megan and Daniel, the couple that we picked up last week, told us to come back and teach their kids. They have 4 boys who all have so much energy!! But they are all so smart!! We taught them the Restoration and the 12 year old boy was talking about the priesthood and asked when it came back... cause ya know, God loves us and wants us to have direction. Ha it was awesome! And they are super excited to read the Book of Mormon together and just learn more. We're really excited to teach them this week!! I feel like they are golden and the spirit is going to hit them real hard. Sick.

Alfred-- so remember when I first talked about Alfred and he said that we were "planting a seed on hard ground." Well we felt like we should keep meeting with him, and at his last lesson he told us that we were softening his heart. Ha so he's 87 and doesn't believe that there is a God... but he said that he's starting to believe in something. His wife, Ann, was there and her jaw dropped and as we left she said that we've got the farthest with him than anyone has before. So there's a glimmer of hope!!

Zeyu-- So Zeyu is just the best. We met with him this week and taught the Restoration. He has tons of super awesome questions. He's just super sincere and wants to learn and grow. He wants to know for himself. Man, I can just feel that he's going to get an answer! Unfortunately he's going to China for a couple weeks :( so we won't be able to meet with him for a bit. Ha but he set up a return appointment with us for June 14... Zeyu on June 14th! ha so that'll be great! Plus he said that while he's traveling there he's going to read lots from the BOM-- PERFECT!! We're excited for him.

Ha biggest tender mercy of the week though: our ward mission leader brought us Jamba Juices from the states. He literally put them in a cooler for us. Please don't take Jamba Juice for granted. It's the best.

So ya, life is great. We are meeting with some more potentials this week that we are really excited about! Plus I feel like our YSA ward is starting to get the missionary spirit and it's the best. We have a bunch of RMs coming home that just wanna baptize nations-- so that's chill.

Shoutout to Mama King and that award that she got this week. Yay... you're just the best :)

Another shoutout to Baby Briggs-- please come soon. 

Anywayyyy I'm loving this area. It's awesome. And so so happy that me and Sister Ho Ching get to stay together and see some more miracles!

Qote of the week: "Our promised blessings are beyond measure. Though the storm clouds may gather, though the rains may pour down upon us, our knowledge of the gospel and our love of our Heavenly Father and of our Savior will comfort and sustain us... as we walk uprightly... There will be nothing in this world that can defeat us." -President Monson

Scripture of the week: 2 Nephi 22:2-- Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.

Love you all and hope that you have a killer week!!!

Sister King :)
