Mosiah 15:16 And again, how beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of those that are still publishing peace!
Here is a portion from my letter to Pres. Day:
On Tuesday after Transfer Meeting, Sister Smith and I went straight to work! She asked me what I liked to do and I without question said, "Finding!" And she told me, perfect because that's what we really need to do. We went out finding that same day and ended the day with 7 lessons. The next day, we went out finding again. The Lord this time allowed us to fulfill our goal of 8 lessons. I just kept thinking, "is everyone in Datong this nice?" It seemed like everyone we talked to wasn't in a rush to leave and was willing to listen to us. One miracle that we had was in the last 30 minutes of contacting this day. We made a goal that on our way back home, we'd talk to everyone who passed us and hopefully have 2 more lessons to reach our goal of 8 lessons that day. And as previously mentioned, the Lord provided us with people who would listen to us.
The following days were a little harder. Many people wouldn't even stop to listen to us. But those first two days that we had together just boosted our confidence and gave us the strength to press forward through those rejections.
On Thursday, we went out right before Weekly Planning to go contacting and were looking for a place to eat lunch. We followed our stomach and our senses which told us that we were really hungry but wanted to find a convenient place where we didn't have to rush home to start WPS on time. So we decided to just eat in the place right under our apartment. As we sat down, this guy, Jerry Cheng, comes up to us and asks us if we are Mormons. We showed him the Book of Mormon and he was so excited. He said that he had just finished reading a book called "Spectacular Grace" by a Mormon author, Adam Miller, I think is his name. And the next book he wanted to read was "Letters to a Young Mormon Boy." We ended up giving him the Book of Mormon and having a lesson. He asked if he could use the Book of Mormon as a reference to the two books. We laughed and said, "no, it doesn't work that way." Well, he was blown away at the coincidence that he just finished reading the book and he meets two missionaries. We got his number and had him add us on Facebook so we can schedule a time to meet. He's a university professor so he's really busy.
Bro. Huang was one of my favorite investigators. He has a baptismal date for 10/18!!! Pray for him to overcome his Word of Wisdom/smoking problem!
