Everything here is fantastic. The City Branch will open on February 19th, and we will tentatively be having 5 people confirmed the opening day. I have come to see how quickly Heavenly Father's work springs forward when we are all aligned, from the missionaries up to the prophet and Jesus Christ.
This week my spiritual highlight was teaching our new investigator, Lanhao. We met Lanhao (from China) on the street, and at our first lesson with him last week he said he decided to meet with us "because you were nice guys, and I wanted to make new friends." Initially we were worried that was all his motivation was, but we had both Lei and Chris--our Chinese recent converts baptized in January--with us at our first lesson, and Lanhao felt something inside when Lei and Chris shared their experiences. At our very next lesson, Lanhao decided to be baptized on the 18th of February. Lanhao was a miracle because a couple of our other investigators on baptismal date dropped us the same week. I know Heavenly Father always provides opportunities for us when others are taken away, because He knows who is ready now.
