Holli - November 16, 2015

Hello Everyone!

This week was pretty awesome!

So we have been trying tracting this week and we run into lots of Chinese people so Sister Maughan downloaded Because of Him in Chinese and we grabbed some pass along cards and we've shown the Chinese video more
times than we've shown the English one! So hopefully the Chinese sisters will have some work to do :)

We are offering service like crazy when we tract. We visit this lady (Sister Terrill) every week and she is 100 years old! Sweetest lady ever and so missionary minded. During our visit this week she didn't have her hearing aids in so we got to offer our services and help put her hearing aids in! Haha, actually Sister Maughan put them in because I was too afraid of destroying her ear canal.

We stopped by a referral from a member. Her name is Maria. She is the sweetest lady ever and has four children. She initially told us she was too busy to meet with us so we offered our help.  It was awesome because she let us clean the house and we got to talk about missionary work and temples and eternal families! We asked if we could say a prayer before we left and she told us that she was used to recited prayers. We gave her a rundown of how we pray and she gathered her kids together and she prayed. The Spirit was so strong and it was way awesome!

We had dinner one night with the Rossiters and the Ausen's joined us (Brother Ausen is the Ward Mission leader). Their whole family is so missionary minded - it's the best! 

One night we were walking home because all of our appointments fell through. We were about halfway home when this guy starts walking beside us. We start talking to him and he started telling us about his beliefs and his doubts and everything! It was awesome! He knew a little bit about Mormons but not a whole lot. It's amazing how the Spirit works with Heavenly Father's children. We ended up giving
him a Book of Mormon and told him about church. 

We had an awesome lesson yesterday with Ilene and Yang. Cute Chinese couple who want to learn more about God. Sister Maughan contacted him last week and set up a return appointment. When we came back they invited us in, gave us juice, and then sat down and just stared at us. I've never seen someone so eager to learn about God before! It was 
awesome! We taught them about half of the restoration before they were lost - kind of a language barrier. However they told us they would go to the Chinese Ward next week and meet up with the Chinese missionaries. They also want to go to our Ward so they can improve their English. We were about to show them Because of Him in Chinese when I asked Ilene, who Jesus Christ was to her. She said initially she thought He was God but we had told her He was the son of God so that's what she learned - Jesus Christ is the Son of God. She just automatically believed it! No doubt or hesitation - it was awesome!

That's about it here from Arcadia! The Lord is hastening His work - and He uses the weak and simple to do it! Loving the missionary life - can't thank you all enough for your prayers and support!

Love, Sister Dunn
