This week was great! I know I say that every week, but I really mean it haha. Every day I'm more and more grateful I'm serving in the area I'm in. The YSA are such a huge boost to missionary work. All of them are converts, so hearing their stories and getting to know them so personally not only makes me love them more, but love the people we teach! Yesterday at church President Ertel asked our investigator Phanida to get up and bear her testimony. (Backstory: She's the mom of Pankou and Emily, and her husband won't let her be baptized because he's still Shaman, but she's faithful in coming to church every week! We've been teaching her since we got here, and her faith has grown exponentially! Obviously not attributed to us, but to the fact she has a natural born desire to believe. #believingbloodofisrael). Sister Xiong and I exchanged looks of terror from across the room, because Phanida is extremely shy, but she walked up there with "peng xue" and shared how even though she's not a member yet, the gospel has already changed her life. She was baller! There wasn't a dry eye in the chapel when she was done. We're praying her husband's heart softens with time, and that he'll let her be baptized.Saturday we went to a sealing at the temple, and it was so beautiful! It's weird seeing YSAs become YAs. They're the cutest couple in the whole universe and are so in love with each other. I'm so grateful for temples and the ability to be married for time and ALL eternity, not just "till death do you part." That's not God's plan for His children! Families are meant to be together forever, and I'm so blessed to know the priesthood authority to do that has been restored again on the earth today through a prophet of God.
