This week we had some very interesting experiences, I will just start at the top of my list.
Last Monday was rough. We were invited over to our ward mission leader's house to eat. He and his family are really cool. (he is also the former mission president) We had a great time with his family and his baby granddaughter while we were waiting for the investigator we invited to show up. The whole time we were watching our watches because we have an hour and a half that we are allowed to be at peoples houses. Luckily the investigator showed up and we were able to share the message but we had to leave right before we ate. It was the most awkward thing I have ever done. Brother Chan was so sad and confused. We felt awful(Also hugely disrespectful in Chinese Culture). But That is obedience for you, not always easy. We made him a card later in the week and he understood, he was just really sad in the moment.
We also this week got a specific assignment from Elder Wong (of the first quorum of the 70) to go and visit a less active. That was fun. Unfortunately he was not at home so we talked to his parents and set up a time for this next week so we will see how that goes.
Then on Thursday we had a meeting to go to a meeting with the bishops wife and meet with a local mentally disabled people place. The actual name is "old person training center" That was an interesting meeting because all the people in the center would just run around and punch each other in the face. So that should be an interesting experience in the next month if I don't get moved.
We also realized that mothers day is the 8th of next month which is sweet because then we get to call/skype home so we are all really excited about that.
This last Saturday we had a lady come up to us on the street and asked us if we could cast an evil spirit out of her son... so that was new.
I also realized that I have been in this area for 6 moths. Which feels like a long time, but also not at the same time... I don't know how to describe it.
Love you all,
This is brother Chan. He is the best I love him!
