Later that day we saw one of our friends from China. He is studying at the local University and got baptised about a month ago. We were seeing how he was doing and he told us, "I wish I could baptise all of my friends and family back home in China. I one day will though. I will." He has such a strong testimony and loves the church. And later on we saw another one of our recent convert Chinese friends. He expressed the same desire. What an amazing day it will be when China opens up to religious freedom.
Later on that day we had to drive up north and help the other missionaries teach someone. The coast was so pretty and the rolling green hills were amazing to see as they dipped into the ocean. The Sat Nav took us a really really wrong way and I ended up having to do some 4 wheel driving in the country side. Reminded me of off roading in my jeep. While on the ride we were able to stop off at some cool places for pictures. I will attach them at the end of the email.
I hope you all had a great Easter. The Easter Bunny did find me an delivered some much needed American Oreos haha. The ward was really nice to us and got us a lot of stuff. One member owns a Kebab Shop and brought us a large pizza to take home and another member had us over for dinner.
It was really a neat experience to be on a mission during Easter. What an amazing thought that because of Jesus Christ the sting of death is taken away. The Church released an amazing new video. Here is it! Give it a watch. http://easter.mormon.
Oh yeah and moves calls were last night! So I am.............. Staying! I am going to be training a new Zone Leader from Brazil. I am sad that I only got to spend one transfer with Elder Vogel but he is going to Northampton to be a Zone Leader there. I am excited to have another Portuguese speaking companion so I can learn a bit more!
