It's raining blessings!

July 31 2017


Hey familia!

What a week this has been full of fun lessons, crazy weather, promptings, service, lessons and new friends. Haha it was a great week! We had 7 people at church this week absolutely amazing!! Wow
Heavenly Father is toooooo good!!! I don't think I have done anything to deserve this so it must be elder Tsai.

this just happens to be parked next to our house

This week we found this new Chinese guy named B....... Haha he is a funny character. We taught him once and he kept asking us why Christian's haven't taken over the government yet and teach people how to be good.
Haha the reasoning behind it was good, but not quite the way of doing it. So we will see what happens with him.

We also taught our amazing Family the I....... family. We taught them the Plan of Salvation and it was aweosme they seemed to really like it. It was a powerful lesson, but please pray that the spirit specifically of the restoration will touch their hearts. But they came to church this week as well and I just love teaching them!!

On Sunday we also had a really cool experience. So right after sacrament we were talking with members and this senior couple sister comes up to us and introduces us to this guy named A......... Turns out this guy ALSO JUST WALKED INTO CHURCH and wants to learn more!!! Wow amazing so we will try and meet with him later on this week. What a blessing!

Everyone knows ELM  stands for England Leeds Mission! 

So really amazing experience this week. So on Friday this week we had just finished our lessons for the day and we were coming in to the flat to eat tea and to do our language study. But after tea I just felt like we needed to leave. Had no idea why? And not only that but with the English summer as well it was raining so my desire to go outside was very little. But we went anyways and as we are walking down this road to the bus stop. We run into this less active who hasn't been to church in years and who we have been trying to see since we came to Leeds. And there he was so naturally we took the bus with him just so we could talk. And it was such a good conversation! He said he would come to church but he didn't, but I believe that was a definite prompting of the spirit to lead us to this man and one day he will come to church. It strengthened my testimony even more of the importance of the spirit in missionary work.

I love this gospel so much, and more importantly I love my Saviour Jesus Christ. What a blessing it is to know that He suffered specifically for me, died for me, and now supports and guides me in all I do! This week I was able to finish the Book of Mormon again following President Nelson's council from conference highlighting everything in it about Christ. What a great testimony builder I invite you all who haven't done it to do so, grab an empty Book of Mormon, and mark it. If you don't have one call the local missionaries and ask
for 2 copies one for you and one to give to a friend!;)

waiting for our investigator....

still waiting..... 

A member brought us tea (dinner), it was awesome! 

Love you all and hope you all have a great week!
