I was freaking out this morning!
12:54 am – We had this strange guy start knocking on our door. Elder Zhang woke up and tried to go back to sleep but this guy kept knocking on the door and yelling.
1:30 – Elder Zhang couldn’t go to sleep so he woke me up. I was so confused, I thought it was time to go and exercise but I was super tired. I looked at my clock, 1:36, of course the clock is broken I think. I finally came to my senses and realize that there is a guy outside our apartment yelling at us to give him back his phone or he’ll call the cops.
1:45 – Too tired to go outside and confront this guy and actually a little scared so we just went back to sleep (tried to go to sleep). We wanted him to call the police so he’d stop knocking on our door anyway. I told Elder Zhang he didn’t have a phone anyway so he’d be a while until he came back.
4:00 – Police actually knock on the door and say, “Hi, we’re here because some man reported that some lady stole his phone and she lives here.” Elder Zhang – “Sorry, its just us that live here. Yeah, I know that guy! He was knocking on our door in the middle of the night and annoying us.”
Police – “Is it just you two that live here?” Elder Zhang – “Yes.” Elder Zhang then closes the door and says, by the way, we didn’t take his phone.
Story of the week (Super long story ha)
This week was pretty simple. We meet with *** everyday and he’s striving to live all the commandments and he’s preparing for his baptismal date on February 7th! Pray that he can have the strength to obey the commandments!! We fasted with *** yesterday and he’s keeping the commandments.
Sister *** read 1/4th of the Book of Mormon. Says she can’t be baptized because she’s a communist! Pray for her!!!
Taught Sister ***s son who acts like he’s old but he’s really only 10. Super interested in the Gospel though, he’s not a communist!
He had a sweet World Mission Conference which we were able to hear to Apostles of the Lord and leaders of the church teach us how to Teach repentance and baptize converts.
This week Elder Russell M. Nelson is coming to speak with the 3 missions of Houston. Tri-Mission Conference!! It’s gonna be sweet! Elder Nelson also speaks Chinese so we’ll test him, maybe he’ll test me!
The work is coming along, we still need to find some new investigators but things will work out. The work must go on!!
Love ya’ll out there. Have a great week!
