Hello everyone!

Today I got an AWESOME package! The pictures were great.

Um.. . . . yeah so I got the package when we went to the mission home to take me to my new companions. Yes, I am in another tri-panionship. Sister H is my new senior companion, and our other companion is Sister s from California. She was also in my older district at the MTC. I have now moved to Kwai Fong and will be serving in two areas- kwai fong and tsuen wan! It is really nice here, I am sad to leave tuen mun and sister e, but I have great hopes of this being an amazing move. Our apartment is about the same size as the one in tuen mun, but having three people instead of five means it is a TON more spacious. Its nice to not have to be quite as careful with your space, because you can spread it out and be a little more easily organized.

The ward members here also give them food all the time, so they've got like a lifetime supply of noodles and chinese candies out on the table. I've attached some more pictures because at the library here we can access the little attachy places to stick the camera into, and yes I AM pretty computer illiterate but somehow was able to figure out how to attach a few to the email even though the computer is in characters. These photos are in a really weird format, but hopefully I'll be able to figure out how to get them on the blog soon. This last week was amazing though- some of the pictures are from last week- like from when S was baptized, she is the one in the white and then in the black dress with the flower. It was so cool, her mom was there supporting her and I just have to say it was probably one of the happiest days ever just to see the joy from everyone. Afterwards we had a dinner gathering with a few families in the ward at the church and that was the last time I got to see S. I'm going to miss her so much, attitude and all!

Then Tuesday I found out I was moving, and went to crossroads the next day. I was kind of hoping i'd move to macau if I moved, but maybe later! :) I know that this is where I'm supposed to be. Anyways, crossroads' bugs were out on the prowl again and somehow managed to find my legs. I'm trying to resist the temptation to itch but it is so hard, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to come home in a year with scarred up legs. What a great thing though, right now my biggest personal worry is to not scratch the bug bites on my calves.

Last night we taught S again, who just got back from thailand and brought us these cookie cracker things. I They were so good and it was really nice because she wasn't going to be able to meet with us but I called her tuesday night and told her I'd be leaving and going to Kwai Fong, so she made time even though she's super busy to see us. And it was probably my favorite lesson I've taught since I've been a missionary. The spirit was so strong and we taught her about faith, repentance, baptism, and the holy ghost. She is amazing and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to teach her. I know how important these things are, because without jesus christ's gospel, without his perfect example of how to return back to live with our heavenly father, what is our purpose? Jesus Christ set the example- he was baptized by someone who had the proper authority. It is so simple, baptism and then just continuing in your efforts and striving to follow him- repenting when we do something wrong and changing every day to become more like him. He is so cool!! And the amounts of blessings for following His example are really incomparable.

Ok.. so that is about it. I hope you enjoy the pictures and stuff. I love you all so much!!! I am so full of gratitude for the opportunity I have to serve heavenly father's children, my friends here in Hong Kong.

One thing I realized might be interesting to know- on door handles and elevator buttons here, a lot of the time they have signs talking about how often they are disinfected- "this handle is sanitized four times per day" and stuff like that. I love it. It makes me not feel Quite as gross.

oh ps. I am getting kind of sick right now with a cold and stuff, which an undisinfected four times per day handle probably gave to me. geesh.

ok I'm out! I love you all so much!! :) Take care and keep choosing the right!
