The Right Place and the Right Time!

Hello hello!                                                                                                           Feb. 3, 2016

Well this week was a bit warmer than last week:) So that made it a lot better. Last Wednesday we went on exchanges with the assistants and that was fun especially since both are in my generation so we had lots we could chat about. :) Then transfers happened and I am staying another 6 weeks in Tucheng! So that was a little bit of a awesome surprise! 
So excited to stay here with these awesome people for another transfer!

Lots of cool miracles happened this week. One though that I wanted to share was, M J. We were going out to contact for like 20 minutes before our lesson. We were going somewhere that we go quite often but for some reason decided to pull in and park on the other side than we usually do. Then while we were parking our bikes this girl walks past. So we say "hello!" and stop to talk with her. We start having a great conversion and then all of a sudden she says "it is fate that I am talking to you." We were like...what? She said that, that day while she was on the MRT she was actually thinking about Jesus Christ. Nothing in particular about him, he had just crossed her thoughts. Then on her way home she decided to walk a different path that was actually way out of her way, where she ran into us. (Although we all know that wasn't just fate) We shared about prayer and baptism to which she really wanted to learn more. At the end we invited her to say the closing prayer. She did and started to cry. Afterward she was embarrassed and was just like "why is this happening! This is so weird I never cry!" We asked her how she felt inside and she said that it was a good feeling. We then helped her to recognize that, that was the spirit. We are meeting with her tonight and I am so excited to share more about he gospel with her! She is awesome!
Dinner with the Gang

On Saturday we spent like 7 hours helping set up tables and chairs for a huge activity for all the old and homeless people. They are having a big dinner and Chinese New Year party for them in front of the govt. offices so that's how we spent our Saturday. It was good and felt good to do service for those in need. Everyone was pretty impressed with how fast and effective we are.... I felt like it wasn't that hard but we taught everyone some pretty effective things to help them move stuff faster haha. 

Other than that, I don't have too much to talk about. Life is great! We have some sick (slang for awesome) investigators that should be getting baptized this month. Just working on overcoming some problems, so that is kind of cool. Anyway I hope that you are all doing really well and have an amazing week! Love ya'll.
