Elder Chew is home!

Mother and Son reunion
We went to the England London Mission to pick up Elder Chew and also to meet up with Jesse my step son, who had served in the same mission 3 years prior. It was a spirit-filled and very touching evening, with lots of tears. President and Sister Stevens and Elder and sister Williams were very attentive, kind and loving to all the missionaries and 5 families who were there picking up their sons and daughter.
First time we have seen him in almost 2 years!

Very close is having to make 2 trips.

A Lovely rendition of Army of Helamans by the missionaries who were transferred out on the 26th July. A little note: I got to meet Sister Lund from Hong Kong whose dad had served as a missionary in Ipoh, Malaysia...my father's hometown.

11/07/16 - Last Zone Meeting

Hey!

Last week was pretty rough, it seems like we're starting over with our
teaching pool. Elder Dalley and I were thinking about what we could do
to find better people. We decided we will do a water fast every other
day this week! We put our trust in the Lord that he will help us find
a new family and help us with our health.

I had my last zone meeting which was a little sad, but we received
good trainings about attacking the morning and talking to others
without using "Mormon language" so they can really understand what
we're saying.

We did a zone study today about the parable of the lost sheep in Luke
15. The Saviour left the 99 to find the one lost sheep. He rejoiced
when he found it. We talked about this as a zone and discussed that no
matter how busy life can get we should always have time to help those
who have lost their way. It is one of the greatest feelings to help
someone find truth and understanding by teaching them simple gospel
principles.

P-day last week was fun in Lavenham! I will attach some pictures. We
saw the house that Harry Potter was born in!

P.s. The Meet the Mormons movie is on the gospel library!


Love,


Elder Chew

04/07/16 - Happy 4th of July!

Hi!

Hope you're enjoying the 4th of July. Apparently America is 240 yrs old! I'll have to go back and visit one day. Our fast and testimony meeting was good and our investigator M. came with the Butcher family. She is staying with them for another week and a half before she goes back to Spain. We taught her yesterday at Bishop's home. She is open to reading and praying to know if the Book of Mormon is true. We hope that when she goes back to Spain her family will support the choices she wants to make. She wasn't sure what they would say about her getting baptised when she is already Orthodox. 

We are going to see Lavenham today with the district, apparently it's a really old village that has been well preserved! This week we will be teaching someone new! His name is D. and we found him when he was jogging. He looks interested in the Book of Mormon and he seems so humble. We are excited for him to work towards a baptismal date and he said some of his family should be there too! 


Love,
