I'M PRETTY MUCH CHINESE

This has been a very normal missionary week. It wasn't necessarily bad, nor was it super good. So it was average. 

MONDAY We went to Ipswich for a Zone Pday. We played sports & ate pizza. At one point we did this weird trust exercise (not really sure if that's actually what I can call it hahah) where I had to walk on all the missionaries' hands across the gym. That's a really bad way to explain it. So they held hands with another missionary & while they were standing up I had to walk across their hands.... Anyways, just know that it was scary. 

TUESDAY We taught someone today who speaks no English, so by "we" I mean "my companion taught & I pretended like I understood." Then we taught a few of our other friends at the university. A member who is 16 & preparing for his mission came with us for the last half of the day. In between a couple lessons, we bought pizza (I think that was the highlight of his day). Then we went to Youth Night & played games with the young women. 

WEDNESDAY This morning we went to the uni super early to meet a friend called Heydon. While we were teaching him, a girl came to us & asked if we were a part of a religious club on campus. We explained to her that we were missionaries & while Sister Lung continued to teach Heydon, I talked with Clara about what we do as missionaries. She was so interested & so excited to meet with us. After, we taught Heydon & put him on date for March 18th! Such a miracle! 

THURSDAY Today was Sister Lung's birthday! We went to a Japanese restaurant & Sister Lung ate sooo much raw fish. Then we saw a couple friends & put them on date! We had correlation in the evening & our ward mission leader brought cake & party hats. 

FRIDAY We had zone meeting & learned about the importance of the sacrament, both for the people we are teaching & ourselves. Then we had zone lunch at Subway & went back to Colchester to see our friends. 

SATURDAY We helped paint someone's house in the morning, then saw some friends. 

SUNDAY We taught the Plan of Salvation in Young Women's class. Then we went to visit an elderly member in a care home & sang to her, then we did weekly planning & had dinner at a member's home. 

MONDAY All day long we prepared for the Chinese New Year family home evening ward activity (that's such a long name). It was so fun & so many of our friends came to the activity! I'm a professional at making Chinese food as well hahaha.
