Busy week. Transfers take a lot out of you. Especially with 13 new sisters coming into the mission... It was good, though, we are done now. It was a lot of training and managing logistics and all that stuff like where people are going, apartment closes and openings, people forgetting passports, visa problems, some of the sisters had to go to Macau to get out of the country for a little bit... it was interesting for sure. We moved a lot of sisters around to make room. Some of them had so much stuff it baffled me! The only day we really had to move a lot of them to be ready for the move was, of course, the day we had a red level rain warning. Trying to get things moved without getting it all wet was difficult because if it gets wet it will get mold for sure, so we had to be extra careful.
We also took the returning group to the airport Friday morning which is always a weird drive... you just dump them off, throw them their luggage and drive away. This time wasn't as bad as when Sister Moody's group went home, though. We got to sleep until 5:00 instead of 4:00 in the morning because their flight was delayed. This last week we had to have spent 20 hours in the car. Just driving from one side of Hong Kong and back again over and over. But, I've decided that if you can drive in Hong Kong, you can drive anywhere on the PLANET! Imagine down town Vegas but wayyy more complex, unforgiving roads, and absolutely ruthless crazzzzy Asisan drivers, haha. But, we got through it. We are hoping to get Elder Falks drivers license this week, so he can drive some too. He is in no rush though, haha. Being on the other side of the road and all freaks him out a little I think.
We didn't really have a ton of time to do a lot of proselyting, but we did get to meet with a new investigator named Joseph who is really cool. He has a desire to be baptized, but he doesn't feel super worthy and is worried about not staying faithful till the end. He's also on parole right now, so we'll see how it goes. He's really cool though. In a band, loves America and wants a Ford Mustang, haha. Other than that, Elder Falk and I are just trying to figure out how to handle everything without Elder Kho here to babysit us... but it will work out. Elder Falk is smart.
Well, I love you all. Keep the faith, never quit, just keep swimming. I don't know if you ever watch Mormon Messages, but these two are probably my favorite. You should check them out and then share them with friends online!
