Subject: Loughbrough – Teaching Vida, Feng, Mingxi, Antony
Hello hello once again! So, great things are continuing to happen. We currently have four people scheduled to get baptized on the 21st of this month, and it should be pretty exciting. we are just trying to do all that we can to make sure that each of them happen. I have really grown to love these four people, and i have been so blessed to be able to teach them. Their names are Vida(from Ghana), and Feng, Mingxi, and Antony(all from China). they are really amazing, and i am so excited for them. The work has continued to pick up, and we are having a blast. Time is passing by faster than ever, I can’t even believe it. I feel like i am at that point in my mission where time doesn’t even seem like a real thing anymore, if that even makes sense. it is very hard to describe.
Elder Swinemar is still great as ever, and we have really loved serving together. It is a very strange feeling to think that i have been with him for almost two months, i feel like i just got to Loughborough. Anyway, on Saturday we had a baptism in the ward. his name is David, and he is a Chinese student studying for his masters. While i interviewed him and was able to hear him bear his testimony, it was really amazing to see how strong his faith is. Four of the Seven converts in the ward this year so far are Chinese, and they are some of the most faithful members i have ever met. it has been so amazing to see how converted they have become to the gospel, and witness the changes that have taken place in their lives because of Jesus Christ. I love this gospel so much, and it has been such an incredible privilege to serve in Loughborough and see these people who are so faithful and love the gospel with all of their heart. They have strengthened my testimony so much, and i am loving my life at the moment. I am just so grateful to be able to be serving a mission at this time in my life. Thank you once again for all that you have done for me, have another great week!
love, Elder DeBeikes
