To mom - I love the new house!

PS Just to mom: 

I LOVE THE NEW HOUSE SO MUCH!!!! thats amazing!! aww everyone is so nice. MOM! the blog is INCREDIBLE!!! it looks so awesome! holy smokes! I showed a lot of people in my zone and they say it looks so cool

hahaha about that skirt, leave it there! its probably a bit too tight, and it is kind of warm. but thats so funny, have fun with my clothes as long as you dont stain them. i may need to bring a few cute warm sweaters to HK... nvm! I can buy them there. less to pack/

ooh! no vitamins please. i cant swallow them. BUT, sprouted powder! I MISS GREEN SMOOTHIES. I dont poop 3 times a day anymore, and some days I never poop!! :( :( :( im still eating well, its just the food here isn't as nutrient dense as food at home. but im still staying so healthy! I cant wait to start making smoothies in HK! 

Love that dad chose a green smoothies over a cookie. that;s me any day. and I love that ty is going to choir. YES. love you! thanks for the socks! unfortunately none of them work tho.. they slide off and show through my shoes. so i gave them to Tu'avao and she was so touched! haha i said they're from you!! but i used the work out socks! so thank you!! I love you!

The Woolf Pack!

Wooo this week has been SO fun!! And it has flown by, holy smokes. I ran into a TON of people I know from BYU! Breeze, caroline, Johnny, Sam, and even a second cousin of mine?? Muirhead? pretty awesome!! Everyone is here! It's definitely the best place to be ;) Honestly though, I get kind of sad...well no, I guess I get pretty motivated because I think, "wow, I only get a few more weeks in the MTC. I'll never get this experience again!" This experience of learning SO much, pushing myself so much every day, laughing every day, feeling the spirit every day, and the best part, being able to teach and bear testimony of Jesus Christ in another language every single day. whoa. It's so awesome. 

Weeeell a lot has happened!! 

First things: parents, I owe you big time. Where much is given, much is required AMEN! Or should I say, A-muyhn! 

Man, it's so true that when you struggle, the Lord will reveal hidden talents you didn't know you had. For example, to work. To concentrate. I'm the worst at focusing at home when studying! But here, when I'm obedient and go to bed on time, and stick to the schedule, and PRAY before I study, I can concentrate SO well. I study SO much but the time flies and my brain just absorbs! It's incredible, I can't believe how much Heavenly Father is helping me! wow. This past week I've been speaking in SYL (speak your language as much as possible) even though no one else really is. I can feel the difference! I think a lot in Cantonese even, instead of having to really concentrate. 

Detail. Dad, you're one of the most detailed people I know in your profession. S Kartchner said, "gosh you're so detailed!" And that's SOOO important when learning Cantonese! Have I ever mentioned how many sounds and tones there are? Literally every other word has a slight change in vowel or tone. If you say it too high or too sloppy and low, or without a hidden "r" or not sharp and abrupt enough; or not forward enough or not a with a closed off, throaty final; or if your initials sound like a 'z' or a 'j' instead of a 'tz' or a 'ch' -- no one will understand you. it's crazy! So, thank you for teaching me how to be detailed. It's incredible because I've realized the way I remember words is by visualizing them. Many times we'll be walking around and I'll totally forget how to say something, but then picture in my mind the flashcard and then all of a sudden I see the word, how it's spelled, and know exactly where the accent is and what the tone is. IT'S SUCH A MIRACLE. 

Music., Mom, THANK YOU for making me sing when I was little. Yes,  thank you. Oh Debi McMindes, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. I have a suggestion. If anyone wants to learn Cantonese, start by playing piano, harmonizing with your parents and singing fun little rounds at 8 years old to the song "I love the Mountains" and join the Honeybee Trio. Yup, I CANT TELL YOU HOW MUCH THAT HAS HELPED!!! Haha no joke!! In HBT, when I'd try remembering what note I'd have to harmonize with next or maybe what note a song would start on, i'd picture it in my mind on the sheet music and pretend to play it on the piano. Also, I'd remember certain songs just by the tune or remember crazy 2nd soprano parts by drilling the part over and over again. Weeeell, with cantonese, I picture the word (or note) and then I can hear it in my head. This especially helps with memorizing phrases or scriptures. I have 1/3 of Daaih Yat Chi Yih Jeuhng (The First Vision) down and it's because I can hear it in my head! so cool.

Animal. Dad: THANK YOU for teaching me how to work out!! haha here at the MTC, gym time in heavenly time. I LOVE IT!!! Some elders formed a group called the Wolf Pack. I cheered them on as they did their squats and pushups as I ran past every so often. Well they invited me to join and I totally did! So on Saturday, I led the lunges. Yeah thats right, Sista Boss was leading the Wolf Pack. Haha so we did Sneaky Lunges half way around the track, some slow, some fast, but every turn we'd dp 15 jump squats, and then run 3 laps. HAHA THEY DIED!! they couldnt even do it!! And everyone's legs were sore the next day! Oh yes. but then someone led pushup walks down one length of the track and I nearly died. shows that I don't lift...ever. I realized afterwards I had rug burn on my hands! lol! So thanks Dad for teaching me not give up and keep working hard! It's been so fun pushing myself super hard those 50 minutes of gym every day. Oh, and, I realized about this Wolf Pack... what's my Name???? WOOLF! haha oh yeah, im born to be wild. hahajk.

The other person I need to thank: Tony Horton. dad knows.He helped me beat the record at gym for longest wall sit! and so did S Kartchner, because she distracted me with stories the whole time. Guess my time? 9:16! haha yay. It was shaking like crazy, but it was so worth it. Those 5am work outs over summer paid off Dad..

So here's an example of the pride circle. You ready? Leih jeunbeihhou? (idk how to type accents on here so everytime I type in Cantonese it's wrong.)

Well, the beginning I was thinking, "HOW IN THE WORLD am I ever going to learn this language?" so I humbled myself. I knew I couldn't do this without the Lord. I know He has me here for a reason, so I know I can only learn this language through His power. Well this week at gym, I offered to say the prayer, and I said it in Cantonese. After the prayer, SOO many people from different zones and districts came up to me saying how cool that sounded and how smooth it was and how they all looked up during the prayer to see who was speaking. I felt so awesome!! Well, literally 2 days later, after I was feeling all cool and what not, I met a man from Hong Kong. boom. I couldn't say one word correctly. haha. Humbled once again. Man you guys, I know I can't do this without the Lord. He is helping me in EVERY way. even with having energy, with being happy, with working hard; He has been helping me since Mom put me in Kids R Music! all of this has been preparing me to learn this language. I'm so grateful for His constant support. 

One more fun thing this week: Sister Kartchner accompanies me singing Abide with Me; Tis Eventide. So I sang and she played in our Sacrament meeting and holy smokes, the spirit was so strong. I loved it. When I sat down, one Elder looked at us with tears in his eyes and said, "thank you sisters. That's the strongest I've felt the spirit since being here. I needed that. Thank you." wow... I love the words so much. Abide with me, tis eventide. Thy walk today with me, has made my heart within me burn, as I communed with Thee! i know that if we constantly seek His help and His guidance.. if we constantly pray for the Spirit to be with us, He WILL bless us with His help and support! Man, there's nothing greater than having the Spirit of God. 

We also sang at a departure devotional last night, and today, we're performing for the new senior couples missionaries coming in in about one hour! and then either next week or the week after they told us we'll perform again for something. we'll see! I love it. However, I do have to admit, it's much harder to sing to invite the SPirit than it is to sing fun 1940's songs! haha. 

ahh sso many other things I wanted to say! one more thing about gym: i just discovered i shoot basketball left handed! You should've seen the moment I discovered it. I felt like 100 people just accepted baptism. I felt like I discovered who I am! haha it was so exciting. S K and I shoot some bball outside of the skoo every day. its way fun!

I'm sorry this letter wasn't as spiritual! ahh at TRC we got to teach a REAL investigator from China! REAL foreign exchange student! Our teacher asked who wants to do and S K and I were totally up for it! so, we went in there and taught about what the Sacrament is and how it's so important and the importance of the Atonement and making those baptismal covenants.  This girl was from China, sooo, she spoke Mandarin. BUT, she had a friend with her who speaks both Mandarin and Cantonese! And guess what? the next day was her first day going to church, so it was PERFECT that we taught about the Sacrament! Wow, God knows. God knows. 

Life is awesome. The gospel is SO true! I'm loving it here! I love all of your support, letters, and packages. I can't believe how incredible you all are! Love you tons! I love being a missionary! There's nothing better than changing your life for other people to help them become like Christ. and you know what that is? Motherhood! I think about Beck, Brooke, and Kait often and how incredible you 3 are. You're the greatest missionaries I know. I love you!

Love, Sister Bosler. 

Do you want to STRUGGLE?!

Leih hou!!!!!! 
WHooooo this week has been the best by far. We got to host on Wednesday and the first girl I hosted was a Cambodian sister in our ZONE! We now have 7 more sisters and 16 more elders, going to Camb, Hmong and Viet. Pretty awesome! we have some great people in our new group! I love our new sisters. They're all so positive and have the strongest desire to be obedient. It's refreshing  having them here!

Well. guess what. Elder PERRY came and spoke on Tuesday!!! he was sooo incredible but honestly my mind is just on yesterday. Mir.a.cles. every second of the day.

First, I woke up and turned to Joseph Smith's testimony of the Book of Mormon. Whoa. I know this book is the word of God. I know it. 

Second, Relief Society. This INCREDIBLE woman named Sister Edmonds came and spoke and she was so funny, chill, and spiritual but so down to earth! She has served FOUR MISSIONS. Anyway, she answered one of my prayers. Her example was, "so how many of you have a district leader who is 18 going on 12?" We can ridicule them, we can ignore them, we can be bitter and fake towards them. Or, we can be part of the miracle that happens as we help them come closer to Christ. It was incredible!

Third, SingChaan. Sacrament. One of the Thai Elders, Elder Wright, spoke on the Book of Mormon. He had a whole talk prepared, but didn't use it and just bore his testimony. Whoa. I cried throughout the whole thing. I conduct the music and couldn't even sing as I was conducting, just smile. In every single verse on every single page of the Book of Mormon--even the war chapters--testifies of Jesus Christ. This Book is of God. I can't believe I used to just read the Book of Mormon to read it, or skip days not reading it-- it is my answer to life! It is the most correct, true book on the Earth! Ah, I don't have time to really write about Sacrament but I remember thinking, "wow, this book is changing my life." and just holding my Book of Mormon. I literally always want to read it's pages.. there's nothing so beautiful. I know every verse was written for a reason!

Fourth, the weather. Haha I know that's silly, but man it's been so beautiful lately! S Kartch and I just sat outside after Sacrament during Priesthood and just talked about the Book of Mormon and this gorgeous earth! ah! 

Fifth, choir. This time in choir we sang "Where Can I Turn for Peace?" MY FAVORITE HYMN!!! I've been making up a gorgeous arrangment in my mind for months now, and being able to sing an arrangement of it in choir made me happy. look up the words.

sixth, DEVOTIONAL. Now listen up! We watched Elder Bednar's "The Character of Christ." I reaaaally really really hope there's some way you can all find it and watch it! It is life changing! S Kartchner and I saw the first week here, and we were so happy they were playing it again because it is so is the makes you not only think about how you want to refine your life but actually DO it. Well, once it ended, the lights came up and I just thought, "man that video is incredible!" All of a sudden, the podium lit up. I looked up, and Elder Bednar himself walked in the room! We all stood and I just started bawling! The spirit he brought in with him was so strong and testified of the Savior! 

And guess what he did? we just held an hour long Q&A! whew. I was just 6 rows from him! Man, I can't even describe how I felt. When he left, I just started crying again. Sister Kartchner and I were talking afterwards and we both felt like the Savior was leaving the room. Okay well, I can't imagine what that would be like, but gosh, let me tell you.. I know he is an apostle of God. I know Jesus Christ lives today! I know we can literally become like Him, just one step at a time. The Atonement also provides increased capacity to do good and become better." wow, I wish I could have brought you all with me and you could have been there!!!! Anyway.. so many of my questions were answered. I didn't ask any, but I had quite a few in mind. 

It's joy that comes through and from the Savior and His Atonement and His gospel! But I've never felt more joy than I did yesterday. It's a greater joy than I've ever felt before. It's athe joy that comes from dedicating your life to Him! Man I love this so much!! Seriously family, I can't even describe anything from Elder Bednar's visit, I'm sorry! It was so spiritual and life changing that I honestly don't WANT to say anything because I don't want to butcher anything... nothing can express the feeling I felt there. 

Well... aside from that, we also had 2 General Authorities come to our CLASSROOM! Of just 10 missionaries! Elder Wong and Elder Martinez. Elder Wong and his wife are from Hong Kong! HE IS SO FUNNY AND ADORABLE. I just wanted to hug him. Both of their testimonies killed me because they both speak broken english yet bear the most powerful witnesses of the Savior.

Well that Saturday at TRC, we knocked on a door to teach someone... guess who it was? Sister Wong!! !hahahaha what.... talk about pressure. She was so kind though. and talked soooo fast. We asked a lot of questions, caught bits and pieces of what she was saying and that's about it. Haha we bore our testimonies and shared some scripture and she was so encouraging! We also taught the Chinese woman, Stella, from last week again. LOVE HER! And guess what she told us? She's Sister Wong's sister!! She said we wouldn't know thought because Sister Wong is so old. hahaha! Okay honestly, every person I've met from Hong kong I've fallen in love with. I can;t wait to go there!!! 

I also had the opportunity to interview the new sisters on friday and saturday. That was the COOLEST experience for me. I have so much compassion for them because I remember how difficult the first week was! I honestly had such a hard time! So I got to share a few scriptures and thoughts I had and it was incredible being able to help them. What a feeling. They're beautiful sisters. Buuuut I did get released now btw! I'm going to miss our awesome meetings on sundays, but aside from that, nothing really changes :) 

Anyway, I love you all! Life is soooooo good. Love hearing from you!  OH!!!! We had a super fun little party the other night! Corinne sent us a package for HUMP DAY! We're half way through??! This wednesday means start of week 6 in the MTC?! Crazy. Anyway, she sent us candies from HK, strawberries, Martinellis!! aaaaand, poppers!! hahaa it was so fun. Everyone loves Corinne. Thank you all for your love and support!!

love, sister bosler

Hump week!!!  It's been 4 weeks already??!!

Sister Tu'avao looooves her package so much!!! 
I love the packages sooo much!

Cute strawberry from Corinne! Everyone LOVED these strawberries bc they werent gross cafeteria ones. and our little party pulling the poppers! haha

OH!!! AND Corinne sent us all a PINATA at the end of our 4 weeks!! Haha one elder got hit in the face... but he's okay. it was so fun though! 


Wow. I cannot even begin to express how much I love all of you. I wrote one little note about a random sister from Tonga who doesn't receive any letters, and guess what, Sister Tu'avao has received 11 packages and who knows how many letters this week!!!!!! I can't believe how incredible you all are! Nothing has made me love you more than this moment. That was true charity. Sister Tu'avao kept saying, "what is happening here? i am so blessed! i dont understand!" the first time I saw Sister Tu'avao cry was this week, because of all of you. ahh it makes me cry thinking about it. my mind is blown! Honestly, it makes me happier knowing my awesome family and friends are serving her than if you sent me a package. so thank you thank you thank you! She not only got letters and packages from you, but she also got letters/packages from -- "sista Baaw" Corinne! A signed beautiful picture of a little girl and the Savior? Her favorite island foods? a ton of gifts and scriptures to open? AMAZING!! She also received things from Brad Wilcox! What!! She showed our  president's wife and she FLIPPED OUT and was so jealous! She received things from 'a random place in AZ!' and even from Elder Kevin Page??!?! Michael Christensen??! Kim Rich?! Wael??! wow wow wow. thank you all, I love you all so much. If I didn't add your name, please know how you mean to me. Every day I have thanked God for you and your charity. Ah! You're the best!! 

Weeeeeell I actually forgot my notes of what I was going to write everyone about! but how fun was that to talk to you over the phone??? We were all on cloud nine after :) That was so fun!

Saturday we had another 2 20 minute lessons for TRC, when volunteers come in. Our first girl was a RM from HK and we had a good time. the second volunteer was about 50 years FROM HONG KONG and spoke pretty bad english. We we were waiting in line for our teacher to pick who to talk to. She knocked on her door and said something in Cantonese to the old woman, and when the woman responded, my companion and I looked at each other in horror. WHAT language was she speaking?? Holy SMOKES she sounded like a strangled monkey! It was so scary and sounded NOTHING like what I've been studying! Fortunately, the lesson went pretty well! we'd say something in cantonese, she'd pause, and then repeat what we said but 100,000times faster hahaha. It was a pretty humbling experience. But even during this scary experience, where either of us could hardly understand each other, when I bore my testimony, I couldn't help but tear up. The spirit testifies of truth no matter how big the language barrier is! Haha at least that's what I tell myself ;) 

Did I tell you about our investigator Bobo? i. love. her. She's 18, she's struggling, she's homosexual, and she loves the Savior. Man, all of you PLEASE check out the videos (or .net! or .com! idk!!!)
ah I THINK! Be careful! haha. Go on or and type in mormons and gays and you'll find so many beautiful videos of homosexual mormons and their life in the gospel. Man, they're some of the strongest, most Christlike people i have ever learned about. My heart goes out to them. My heart goes out to Bobo, too. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love her no matter what. They love her SO much. They want her to be happy. She can find happiness in this gospel! After our last lesson she asked, "where  can I read about Christ?" WOO!! she's such a strong girl! Her favorite scripture that we've shared with her so far is Ether 12:27. I know that if we come unto Christ, He will make our weaknesses strong. She knows it too!!! 

One last thing. ELDER HOLLAND CAME ON TUESDAY!!!! We are seriously at the MTC at the most awesome time!!!!! He said that he thinks he has thought about his mission every day (he said, "okay there has probably been SOME days that i havent thought about it, but we get the point). Basically, his mission changed him. He argues that it's changed him more than it's changed anybody. He told us that this mission has to mean EVERYTHING to us.  He said, " I cannot live when a missionary comes home and is not active in the church. We spent every hour of every day crying and praying over people and then fall away?" Many RMs think, "okay back to real life now.." and forget their missionary ways... but no, this mission IS REAL LIFE. What do we preach about? Jesus Christ. what do we do every day? serve. this is real life. I never realized that. he also said this concerning RMs "I can't stand the thought of losing any of His sheep, but I cannot even conceive the thought of losing one of His shepherds. What kind of loyalty is that?" 
He also talked about how we as members of the church take the greatest gift in the world for granted: the gift of the holy ghost. But in all reality, we have the opportunity to constantly walk with one of the members of the Godhead. wow. His words were true. I felt numb after he spoke! 

Sorry this letter was pretty choppy and unorganized. BUT, I love you all so much! I love it here! pray on!

Love, Sister Bosler

Ngoh ge GaTihng!!!! (my family!)

Ahhhh our gatihng is growing!!!! Sammy is SO beautiful and BIG!! WOW! I love love love the pic of all the boys surrounding him and his incredible mommy! Seriously Bec, you amaze me. all my sisters do. You have such a wonderful family!!!

THANK YOU ALL for all your letters. THey make me so happy! haha the district and zone practically hate me because literally every day I receive a letter and/or package. It's so fun!! I can totally feel your love and prayers... man you're the best. seriously. Oh, and CORINNE literally sends me a whole raw/vegan LUNCH EVERY DAY!!!!!!!! really, muihyaht! (Every day!) It's so. so. incredible. Feast upon the words of Christ....and Corinne's food. That's the secret to happiness. :) 

Who sent me that mysterious package with some herbal tea and awesome energy bites? well, THANK YOU!!! It was so yummy. I am so spoiled. I'm supposed to be going through challenges here you know... ;) haaha!

Well, here's one thing i'm concerned about. Sister Tu'avao, from Tonga, can't email, write, or receive letters or packages from her family or anyone. She. Never. Ever. Receieves. Any. Letters. Never. It breaks my heart. There's a missionary here who is leaving for Tonga and she gave him 9 letters to get to her family. Ugh, breaks my heart. So... next time you want to write me a handwritten letter or send a package, please send it to Sister Tu'avao instead? Her address is the same as mine. (OH!! Our unit box is changed to 130 not 81!!!!!!!!) Seriously, that would make me so happy, and it would make her happy, too. You would make her life. She hates healthy food though.... ahaha!! But she LOVES love and pictures!! I gave her an HBT pic and she gasped, jumped, picked me up and hugged me and loves it. She also recorded me singing God Be WIth YOu Til We Meet Again 3 times when I was in bed one night, and then played it over and over and over again. Hahaha I love her. She makes me feel loved and important :) Please though, it must be so hard for her here! Coming to a foreign country, speaking NOT her native tongue, and learning a whole new language, knowing she will never hear from her family. not once. ugh.. it kills me. I love you all!!!

Well well WELL, this week has been life changing--no joke! Tuesday, I was feeling sorry for myself. Haha so lame. Sis Kartchner had to go to the clinic, so I was just waiting for about an hour just being lame. She came back out, I asked her how it went, and she looked at me and said, "The Dr said I most likely will be reassigned." I started bawling. S Kartchner has ulcerativclytis (Kaitlin! How do I spell it!!!) and cant eat SOOOO many things including sugar, raw veggies, and beans because it makes her bleed internally. Her condition got worse after she turned in her papers/ The Dr couldnt believe she got through to HK. She was so confused. "God specifically assigned me to go to HK. I don't get it. But, this does NOT shake my faith." I looked at this sister as she stood up to walk back into class, ready to work, full of faith, full of love. WHAT?! I was so amazed. Well that night we had a devo from... ELDER CHRISTOFFERSON!!!! Ahhhhh I am so lucky. He talked about the word "trusted". "It is greater to be trusted than to be loved." oh how true that is!!! How many of us can God trust? He loves us ALL unconditionally, but how many of us does He truly trust? Can I call myself trustworthy?  I wonder if Peter the Apostle had an opportunity like I do to learn a forgein language. He would JUMP all over than and learn as many as he could so he could teach the gospel in so many foreign lands! How lucky I am to learn this language!! So I can preach the gospel and HELP others come unto Christ! Elder Chri. talked about how trustworthy our ultimate examplar, Jesus Christ is. He talked about when Christ was suffering for each and every one of our sins, pains, frustrations, trials, weaknesses, sicknesses...and how at one point, Christ mustve thought for a moment, with concern, "I might shrink and not be able to finish." But He did. WHY? HOW? He was SO intent with the Father's will, that he COULD NOT SHRINK. Wow, I never even realized once that the Savior thought He couldn't finish for a moment. But no, He went a little further, like always, and He finished His Father's work. Our purpose here on Earth is to gain a physical body, to gain experience, to learn from our mistakes, to feel joy, to have families---but what was Christ's purpose here on Earth? Literally focused on you, on me, on everyone. His sole purpose for coming to Earth was to suffer for all of our afflictions, sins, and pains, so we don't have to suffer alone and so we can repent and be forgiven of ANYTHING; so we can learn His perfect ways, have charity and love, serve, be humble, and forgiving, just like He was; and to have a perfect person to follow so we know how to return to our Father in Heaven; and so that we actually CAN be resurrected and return to live with Him, in our perfect form. His life humbles me. He changes me. He makes me want to be as trustworthy to the Father as He is. He makes me want to live every moment for Him. 

Both Natalie and Tod have written me beautiful letters, thinking, "how did I deserve all this?" Look at what you have. Look at your life. Count your blessings. Why me? Why did Heavenly Father bless me with all of this? I could have been born years ago, or have been born with psycho parents and turned out to be a drug addict myself... I could be living on the streets... But no, God has blessed me with an INCREDIBLE family. He has blessed me with this voice, with Natalie and Sarah and having the opportunity to grow closer with them and to share our talents and love to thousands of people. He has blessed me with 2 arms, 2 legs, and the ability to run and not be weary, run and not be faint... He has blessed me with the knowledge of this gospel, and with a sure testimony that cannot and will not ever be shaken. He has given me this opportunity to come to this sacred place, the MTC, and study His life, study how to change, study a whole freakin new language and what incredible blessings come from that!! The opportunity to make new friendships and love people from all over the world! He has blessed me with this wonderful companion. And He trusts me enough to walk, talk, and love as His representative for 18 months. He trusts YOU to be the incredible mothers you are, the incredible men you are, the incredible individual and caring person you are. He loves you so much that He has given you this opportunity to live the best life you can. He loves your so much to bless you with the gospel in your life so you can constantly become a better person; so you can constantly become closer to Christ and LOVE ONE ANOTHER. We are so lucky. We have all we need, and more. I'm so grateful for this!!

Well about Sister Kartchner... after the devo, we have a devo review where we share our testimony. As it started, the specialist actually came in and called her out to talk with her. Oh man, I was praying my heart out. She came back 20 minutes later, with tears rolling down her face (no one knew waht was going on but me) and I just froze thinking, "she's crying. no. why is she crying." She looked at me, and just gave me thumbs up with a smile. WOW!!! Miracles happen!! I wanted to know WHAT the Dr said because he said there's no way she should be in HK since she has to get her blood drawn every 6 weeks!!!! It was actually her turn to bear her testimony, and she just bawled and told everyone what happened, and how she KNOWS without a DOUBT that she is supposed to be in HK, serving the people there. The Lord definitely wants her there. And I just sat there thinking, "here I was, earlier today, feeling sorry for myself....and here she is, almost getting reassigned, but having the faith and the heart to do whatever the Lord wants her to do." Turns out, our mission president said, "her heart is in Hong Kong. We will find a way." and there is a specialist for her disease in our mission area.

I'm so grateful for her positive example! I'm SOOO happy she's staying, too!! YAY!! And gosh, just that devotional about becoming trustworthy and the scare of my comp almost getting reassigned, and just thinking of all my blessings: LIFE IS AMAZING! I am loving this so much!!

Some awesome goals I've accomplished this week:
1) I realized I love to work. The mornings are my FAV, because I'm so pumped and ready to go. I love running during gym, I love the healthy food I'm eating; then we study hard and focus hard, and have fun during lunch and dinner. But at the end of the day, I just lay in my bed thinking "oh yeah!" haha! Man, I could not do all of this on my own though!! I am so grateful for the Holy Ghost@
2) I can shower, eat, and get ready in 20 minutes. When i'd schedule an hour 30 at home.
3) TRC - awesome. It's when volunteers come in and you give them a spiritual message. Our volunteer was in my BoM class and she served in HK! We talked about Heimohng (hope). At the end, she was going on and on about how great our Gwong dong wa is (Canonese)! YAY! She was amazed we were here for 3 weeks
4) We have a TON of foreign missionaries. Tongans. Love. White. Girls. Here's how Tongan's hit on white sister missionaries "oh hey seestaas! u need help to find scripta?" or "aiii seestas!!! you have crayon?" HAHAHA kills me. We always politely answer and then just die laughing afterwards. This happens like every 10 minutes when we study outside hahaha.

Mom, Thank you for the flip flops yay!! Can you please send a good family picture? The only one I have is of me in a swimsuit and I'm thinking that's not the best for a missionary to show... haha. I keep it in my scriptures though :) I have all my pics on my wall and love it!

Well, that's about it for this week! It's been incredible! I love you and miss you all! Give Sammy a kiss for me!
