We Listen To A Prophet’s Voice

Sister Huang and I trying a new drink... interesting to say the least haha.

Hello world!!!
First off, shout out to my amazing mom who did a great job translating some talks
for General Conference (even though I can’t read them haha)! Also, SMALL WORLD
because I found out one of the members of the bishopric in the ward I’m serving is
friends with my parents andapparently I went to their house when I was little! Also
found out that Sister Larsen’s (another Chinese sister missionary who finished a
couple weeks ago) mom and my mom served in a trio together in Taichong! Crazy
how worlds collide.
Anyway, this week was so good. Extra good because the two weeks prior were a
bit rocky. To start off, our companionship really saw the Lord’s hand
in helping us this week. First, we had zero new investigators last
week. This week, the Lord has blessed us with seven. Last week, we had
one investigator come to sacrament meeting. This week, we had nine
investigators come to General Conference! Also, contacting has been
slow but this past week, we got four phone numbers! It was so neat to
see the Lord guide us to talk and meet certain people. My heart is so happy.

Sister Xia and I had another chance to work with each other as a two
person companionship because Sister Huang went to Alhambra to do
exchanges with Sister Chan and Sister Gong. I love Sister Xia. She is
so hard working and has a great sense of humor. She is diligent in
improving herself so that she can be a more successful missionary. Once
she knows what she has to work on, she gets right to it.

We had interviews with the President Villanueva this past week.
Besides being the nicest man ever, I know he is an inspired man of the
Lord and I am so grateful to have him as my mission president. He is
an example of patience, charity, meekness and kindness to me.

And of course, the reason why this week was extra good was because it
was GENERAL CONFERENCE. It was another testament to me that Thomas S.
Monson is our prophet today who leads and guides us and that all the
leaders of the church are called of God. Each one of those talks were
truly inspired. I loved them all so it’s hard to pick favorites. I
really liked Jeffrey R. Holland’s talk with his story about the two
brothers. It was another reminder that the Savior, Jesus Christ, will
ALWAYS be there to lift you up, NO MATTER the circumstance. He will
NEVER give up on us. Get to know him. As you get to know him more and
more, I promise you your life will be better. We will all still have
struggles and challenges, but they will be easier to handle because
you can rely on Jesus Christ to help you and bear your burdens with
you.

I am so grateful for this gospel. I am grateful for inspired leaders
who lead and guide us. Jesus has risen! He is here to help us and he
can be your best friend! No matter how hard times can get, life is
still wonderful and there is always hope!
Love you all!
Sister Huang

P.S.: Our zone is going to the temple next Tuesday so I will be
writing next Tuesday instead of Monday. So excited for the temple!
