A Great Week

This week has been great again! Every week is great! The highlight of this week was the Temple! Such a great place. 

Chinese New Year decorations at our apartment
We had some more great finding experiences. I'd like to share one: While finding in Victoria Park one evening we came to a fork and Sister Tse was like "Should we go left or right?" and I was like "Right!" so we did. At the third bench we passed there was a girl sitting there, so we started to talk to her. She was actually from the Philippines so we spoke to her in English. We ended up sitting with her for a while and sharing with her about the gospel. Her name is Jasmine. She was really awesome and we were able to really bear testimony to her that what we were saying was true. We gave her a Book of Mormon and read with her and she was really touched. It was so awesome! We became great fast friends! At the end she asked if we could meet more so that she could keep learning. We were like "YES!" and so we set up an appointment to meet the next day. The next day comes and we meet her at the park (she has her Book of Mormon in her purse and everything) and then take her to the church and introduce her to the Philippine missionaries (Sister Aro and Sister Posadas who are actually our roommates) who then take her to a relief society activity. That night, when we all came home Sister Aro and Sister Posadas told us that Jasmine had a great time! She loved church and she is so happy to learn more! Yay! They also told us that she had told them that last night, before we had met her, Jasmine had been sitting in the park and was actually waiting for a friend...though he never came and we did instead :) and some creepy guy was coming up to her, and so she was really scared. And then, a little bit later we approached her and she saw our name tags and said that she knew that she could trust us! So, without even knowing it we had been totally led to her not only to bring her the gospel, but also to comfort her when she was scared and protect her! She is so awesome!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy we met her :)
Sister Tse, Candy (an investigator) and me
We also met several new investigators this week....they are all so great! I am so excited to get to know them more! We have one who is 19, just like me. It's so cool because she is always like "Hey you're 19 too, so...." and then she asks me a question! I am so happy to have the opportunity to meet and help such wonderful people!
Shopping in Mong Kok

I'm also really happy right now because for P-day today we went to Mong Kok! Which has really cheap shopping places! We went to a thrift shop and for about 10 USD I bought 2 skirts, 3 shirts, a cardigan, and a dress (by some miracle I was able to find clothes that were actually long enough for me ... so I'm happy for that too!)!  AND Sister Tse and I bought selfie sticks - you attach it to your camera and then you can take better selfies! Hahaha :)  Every Chinese tourist has one and now we do too :)
Check out my Selfie Stick!
