This was an interesting week for sure. On Tuesday we had MLC on the 4th of July. So, I wore my American flag tie and Elder Allred had an American flag pined to his tie. I stuck an American flag in my scriptures on my table and had a little flag waving. We had a good discussion about how to find new investigators. We also decided on a new way of evaluating the new missionaries language. That was pretty interesting. Then right before lunch we sang the American National Anthem. It was great. All of the Chinese and foreigners were having to use the hymn book. It was a good meeting. After that we went home and met up with a few of the missionaries in the Zone and went out and got good old American style burgers. That was a lot of fun. I miss doing those kinds of things.
Sorry this is going to be all over the place. Last Monday we went to the beach in Tuen Mun and played beach volleyball again. This time it was raining slightly so the sand did not burn our feet. That was a lot of fun!
SO the title of this weeks letter is The Plague!!!! This is because on Tuesday Elder Stober (our roommate) got sick. So he stayed in bed for a bit. The problem came when his companion got the flu on Wednesday evening! So Elder Stober hardly went out of the house for 5 days. This is making Elder Fakatou and I very nervous and we are taking Airborne and any other kind of preventative medicine we can find. We also make the Elder with the flu wear a mask in the house. I really really don't want to get sick.
Long story short, Elder Stober had some serious cabin fever so I took him out to do some things in his area. They got a request for a Book of Mormon from a person who lives on Palm Springs which is a very very rich part of the Yuen Long area. I will attach some pictures. So we went there thinking it was going to be some crazy old man. Turns out it was an 18 year old girl who goes to international school, so her English was perfect. We taught her a lesson in English which was super hard! haha
Then that night Elder Stober had some members from Shum Shui Po come up and take him and me to dinner. I got a HK$200 steak and it was amazing! The three ladies were super funny and they took us grocery shopping afterwards. It was great!
That is all for this week!
the pictures of the cars are from inside the Palm Spring place... yeah it was that rich!
