"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

Learning Mandarin Chinese

October 14, 2013

Nihao ma? (I'm learning Mandarin now):
Thanks for fasting for me mom. The whole pastor thing didn't happen, but the one pastor that I sent a picture of us is getting baptized on Saturday.

My clothes are fine. I'll just wait till I go home and buy some new clothes. I'm still jealous you guys hit up the  Faggioli cabin! We never got to go.

We gotta start doing school stuff soon! Hopefully I still get some scholarships and stuff.

Conference was way dope! Some of my faves...?  Obviously Elder Oaks about if you don't prioritize the Plan of Salvation, your worshiping other gods. Uchtdorf and Holland of course. The one football quarterback all excited and about member missionaries gave a great talk. 

This transfer's gonna be dope though. My one companion Elder Lansang, goes home tomorrow, so it'll just be me and Elder Liu (my new comp). This kid is so freaking funny. He's from China like 3 hours south of Mongolia and has only been here for like 4 months, so I get to teach him English and Tagalog. It's kinda tough but it's way funny. Yesterday we worked on using the letter "L". He struggles so badly and it's super funny, but he's chill so we just have a blast. Everyone here loves him though. It's kind of hard because not many people can talk to him, so I kinda just translate. I have received a few comments of how cool it is we have a Chinese guy here. He's for sure gonna be a big help for the church when he goes home, so I'm excited to help him out.

Not too much going on this week because of conference and meetings, but pray for us that we can get a couple of baptism dates to happen. There a two that are close to being baptized.  My companion hasn't had a baptism yet, so I promised him we'll have one this transfer and he'll baptize them. 

But ya, that's all!
