sooo remember how i just went senior and step training last week. yes lets make this clear. 1 one week ago. Well got a lovely call from President Hawks today... went a little something like this.
Pres: Sister Lier, how are you doing.
Me: Great President thank you.... blah blah small talk...
Pres: how's the area
Me: oh its wonderful i love it
Pres: how familiar are you with it.
Me:...well as familiar as i can be with just living her for a week
Pres: how fast can you become familiar with it.
Me: ...well as fast as you need me to.
Pres: great, prefect answer. your companion is moving to macau this upcoming tuesday, and i want you to train a new missionary coming on tuesday.
Me: ok. yes sir. anything you want.
then he was like i know this is sudden, but this is what the Lord needs you to do right now. I have full faith you in, this is a big responsibility.... ect ect.
YEAH WOW. right... like i had a feeling that i would train soon but not that soon, like i was thinking the soonest was next move at the soonest... well yes. lucky me.
But yes i know that Lord has a lot of faith in me, and he is trusting me, which also means that i need his help A LOT!!!!!!! wow. yes a little bit overwhelmed but i am excited for this challenge and just another opportunity to push me a little harder.
YUP... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME hahaha have a baby on my birthday pretty much thats great.
its just super interesting because you can train UNLESS you step train.. yeah i step train for a week. hahahaha so funny. Well this is me putting full faith in the Lord!!!!! i know he will help me.
alright well other then that, I LOVE LVOE LOVE LOVE THIS AREA.
i was able to see my mami sister chiu, and the first day she came to english class and brought me egg tarts our favorite thing when we were serving together!!! :] she is the greatest. but here is the sad news apparently they took seung seui out of our area... which is my last comapnion sister wong, and sister chius ward dang it. but i know everything is for a reason... just at this point i am not quite sure haha but i am still able to see sister chiu so good!!! the other day when i saw her after my companion was like i love watching you two together... you two really are the best of friends!!! we get crazy when we are together and laugh and ramble of in chinese hahahai love it. i love her.
well my companion that i am only going to have for 1 week .... i love her she is amazing. this little sweet heart studying chemical engineering a little nerd but she is the greatest. i am super sad she has to leave... because i really do love her. oh my goodness but she is just the greatest. and so nerdy hahaha like typical sister missinoary but its so good.. yeah my first non native companion.... and word on the street is that my companion is coming from malaysia... so that should be interesting where the speak indonesian.... and not good english or cantonese... so yeah pray that this time will be good. but i have a feeling heavenly father is really going to push me this next move!!!! i will love it though. Come what may a love it right.
i love the ward the are so great its like heaven and the are so willing to help the missionaries its like what a ward is suppose to be like. SOOO HAPPY. the first day i was there they saw that i was new and starting giving me all this food and went out and bought us like watermelon and mcdonalds and donuts hahah i was like wow... what a welcome right haha i feel like this scripture has been applied the last couple of days "Luke 10:8" go read i am sure you will get a kick out of it.
Elder Nield is serving in my area again... do you know who that is.. like one of my favorite elders we were in the MTC together!!!! :]
i have been working so hard in this area and trying to make every minute count the moment i got in i started memorzing the area book i know you probably think i am crazy and those crazy intense missionaries... and yes i kind of am but i wanted to go to church on sunday and know most of the people there... mind you we serve 2 wards so its not the easiest thing in the world. but you love how i stratigically worked it all out for sure getting in contact with all the leaders of our ward.. starting with the bishop i gave them a call when i got in talked to them on the phone for a little bit of what the expect of me to do for their ward and they welcomed me ... they loved it... and then sunday. they already we expecting me and knew my name. BINGO. and invited me to introduce myself and bear my testimony in sacrement. it was so great and then that night the bishops family invited us over for dinner and their family home evening. OH YEAH. haha so good though. hard works pays off. and lets be real i had to push myself because its not easy coming into a new area and not know if they are going to like you...ect ect but you just have to push push and push yourself so more. BUT it will all work out, and it will all pay off!!!!! The Lord is amazing that is for sure
On sunday i pretty much got a job offer from one of the ward members to come back and do graphic design for him. He is a HUGE graphic designer and travels the world setting up like theme parks and games and all the stuff its awesome and we just talked forever on sunday and he was like dead serious about me coming back and working with him... he was getting a little to excited haha so maybe i will be going back to HK to work haha that would be cool!!!! but i am sure i could work out of NY too. he goes everywhre milan russia, america EVERYWHERE so cool
oh and we have a family of geikos that lives in our house they are everywhere haha but its good because they eat the bugs!!! well thats a plus and they are pretty cute hahah
sorry so many thoughts and craziness in this letter. i am sure the next one is going to be just as crazy i swear this is Heavenly Father being like alright my little darling its CRUNCH time. hahaha but its super good and i love it.
i love you all so much your amazing.
