Tai Po is absolutely INCREDIBLE. we love it so much.
yesterday was one of the happiest days of my life! Bobo was early for church, church answered all her concerns; during sacrament, a missionary who served in Oakland and i met her!!! gave her homecoming talk--oh yeah--and invited 5 friends that we met! another girl named Wilma Ho gave a farewell talk--actually, she sang with her sister --aamazing--and now her sister wants to sing with me! yes! anyway, the spirit was so strong and we were bawling. after she got set apart, we visited their family. we all read D&C 4 together, and since we have that memorized in Chinese, i said it in chinese and they all thought i could read characters ;) haha but we also taught Bobo that day too... i can't even express the love and the feeling i have when teaching her! she knows God loves her. she loves Him. and she's changing her life for Him. she inspires me. i've never been so happy.
we ran all throughout our area yesterday getting to appointments. we met a cute pohpo (grandma) in our ward who's daughter is LA. we became friends with her and she's adorable! but we also had dinner at Bishop Cheung's home. he. is. AWESOME! a potential named Joanne came with us--she's vegetarian ;)
i'm already loving Tai Po so much. it was sooo hard leaving PFL and my family there, but i'm loving this place just as much! i'ts very, very exciting!
my companion ROCKS. she is hilarious and so chill but hard working. haha love her!! she's from Utah and a farmer :) she's the bomb. we run along a river every morning together, and today we're hitting up the street markets of the New T's. life is good.
last week, we were priviledged to be visited by another prophet of the Lord. Elder Ballard. he speaks with power. he has changed my mission--actually, he has changed my life. everything i've been learning the past few months has been changing my LIFE! it's incredible. there's so much more to life than i ever knew! i just want everyone to find out for themselves and give us missionaries a chance to help them find out for themselves! anyway, one thing i learned again is a lesson of love. love is obedience. obedience is love. i never, ever, knew that. i thought you could only be one or the other. but you can't be one without the other.
And something else I know to be true and truly hope everyone knows: I know we are all God's children. What does this mean though? why does this matter? Because He is loves us SO much, He understands us completely. We lived with Him once before, and He sent us here, knowing we would receive trials, become lost, possibly never even have an opportunity to learn of Him, but he sent us here so we can choose for ourselves if we want to change to become like Him. That's all He wants for all of us--to become better. To become more loving, more happy, more full of service and gratitude, more successful, more kind, more forgiving--until we can become like Him. I know each of us has potentional to become as perfect as our loving Heavenly Father. All we have to do is begin to ask Him how we can do so, and follow the answer we receive.
45 For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light is Spirit, even the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
46 And the Spirit giveth light to every man that cometh into the world; and the Spirit enlighteneth every man through the world, that hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit
I invite you to take this opportunity and sincerely ask God what He wants for you in life. Every day we have the opportunity to change. Start now :) it's the greatest thing in the world.
I love you! I love our Savior and Heavenly Father!
Love, Sister Bosler
and on the bus to go visit with the elders!
Notes back and forth from Karli to family:
BEST FAMILY EVER!!! man, im going to raise my family just like that. :) haha thanks mom and dad.

love the update! thank you!
a LETTER from BISHOP??? haha what!! he's awesome. i didint get it!
Dear Bosler Family,
5 mins ago, Sister Bosler called me and shared with me a sad news, she will move to another area called Tai Po Ward, I knew it's a big loss and sad news for many members and investigators in Pokfulam area, but it's definitely a good news for the Tai Po Ward, I know the bishop over there and he's a good friend of mine since we both studied at BYU Hawaii, I knew Sister Bosler will serve in a much bigger ward with a very kind and great bishop, ,and now her leadership and talents can bless and influence more people, Bruce and Sister Bosler, you have all reasons to be proud of your wonderful daughter who demonstrates all Christlike attributes towards everyone she encounters with, I know she is part of our Pokfulam Family since she came here in last year June. We definitely miss her and wish her all the best in her next mission journey. Thank you for raising such a great missionary and sister leader, who dedicated her whole time for the Lord work and being a great example among us, we truly share many happy and challenged moments together.
