Subject: A Chinese recent convert named Yixing, cooked us Chinese food
Alrighty, so this week was another excellent one. I don’t think i can say i have had a single bad week in Loughborough, it really is amazing. We have found some more people to teach, who are very excited about the gospel. One is named Han, who is another chinese student who we have taught a few times since last week. He has told us how everytime he meets with us, he feels like it is helping his spirit, as well as every time he reads the Book of Mormon. He is so excited about all of the things he is learning. experiences like this make me so grateful for the gospel in my life. it really is an amazing thing that i took so much for granted in my life before my mission.
So we have Feng who is scheduled to get baptized this saturday, which is so exciting. The other three that i mentioned last week have been postponed, so we will see what happens with them. Feng is very excited though, and he has changed so much ever since we started teaching him. it is so awesome to see how the gospel really can change peoples’ lives. He is so much more confident and has been so much happier than he was before we started teaching him.
Another highlight of the week was when a chinese recent convert named Yixing had us over for dinner and cooked us Chinese food. It was SO good, and Yixing is one of the funniest, most converted people i have ever met. I swear, Chinese people are the nicest people on the planet. We had such a good time with him, and it was so cool to hear him talk about how much he loves the gospel, and if he wasn’t 29 then he would definitely serve a mission. Loughborough has so many people who are so converted to the gospel. they have strengthened my testimony so much, and i cannot tell you how much more i appreciate the restored gospel of Jesus Christ since i have been on a mission. I am really loving life, it really is great. i have so much to be happy about. Well, enough of my ranting on about the greatness of the gospel, i hope you get the point. well, have a great week!
Love, Elder DeBeikes
