Ahhhh!! We only have 20 days left! All of the missionaries that came in with us are leaving!! Speaking of which, there is a Portuguese missionary, Elder B. who has been re-assigned to Chicago while he waits for his visa, maybe he'll come to Ottawa!!! Oh, listen to your last year's EFY CD. I know the girl who sang "I am his Daughter." She is super sweet!!!
I wanted to tell you about a cool experience this weekend. This weekend I was feeling a bit like a "buhngaausih" (a missionary coined term which is a combination of buhngaau (apostasy) and chyuhngaausih (missionary)). I really wasn't, but I really wanted to be working harder, I knew I could be doing more to be prepared for HK in 3 weeks, but I really wasn't sure how. It's so frustrating! Saturday night and Sunday morning, I really prayed that I could figure out how to snap out of it and be motivated to work hard for my last few weeks here. I also dedicated my fast to figuring out what I needed to be doing to be prepared for Hong Kong. Heavenly Father hears prayers!!! We had barely gotten to church when I realized I was speaking Cantonese with my companions without consciously deciding to do so! That alone was a motivation boost! The rest of Sunday was really uplifting and rejuvenating, I learned a lot! Since then, I haven't been "cured" completely, but I know that wouldn't help me, I need to learn to work hard and learn, but Heavenly Father has blessed me with lots of little experiences that have really kept me motivated and helped me know what goals I can be setting and how I can improve. I still have to work, that's not going to change, but I know Heavenly Father is behind this work 100%!!! He is going to help me, and with Him I can do this!! That is perfect!!
I love you all soooo much and I hope you have a great week!!!
