Hello everyone!!! Elder Nelson and I have seen many miracles and the Lord continues to bless us everyday. I am excited to continue to work hard and to help more Chinese people Come Unto Christ. I have 2 cousins coming out soon to the mission field. I am so excited for Michael and Joseph. They are gonna be awesome missionaries and are gonna love this work. Go teach it boys!

Our district is doing well and it is so great to be able to serve. I gave a training this week on The doctrine of Christ. It went pretty well!  Our English Class still continues to grow. That is a great blessing. It is a really great finding tool for us. I teach the more basic English and Elder Nelson teaches the more Advanced English. It is enticing to people when we offer different levels and it has been working!!! 

We met this week with Brother and Sister Meaders, a couple living in the Eastvale Ward. They both are converts and are really cool! We shared with them a new Ward Mission Plan that we are implementing soon. It was an awesome visit!!! We've done several visits this week with more members in the Eastvale Ward. It is so helpful when members share the Gospel. We visited with the Deng Family and Tina and Tony. They all are so awesome and have a strong desire to help us further the missionary work here!!!

We went to Gun's house to have another lesson with Guns, Anna and Bao Jie Mei! Sadly, Anna was putting their kids to bed and Grace was asleep so we just taught Guns and Bao Jie Mei. We taught a lot about the importance and power of the Book of Mormon. It was a really great lesson and the Spirit was strong!

Friday afternoon we had another lesson with Jerry. Jerry has a lot of faith and a strong desire to learn about Jesus Christ. We are really really excited for him! We also had the opportunity to go and give Shanon a Priesthood blessing this week. She hasn't been feeling well recently and so we went over to give her a blessing. We also met her husband who was visiting from China. It was a really really powerful experience. More on that later!!!!!!!!!!! 

Saturday was another pretty good day!!! That morning, we had another Weekly Blitz. Elder Phipps and I went out together. It was Elder Phipps's last Weekly Blitz on his mission because he is going home tomorrow! We talked to a lot of people and were able to get 2 referrals for the Eastvale English Elders. Working to the end!!! That afternoon, Shanon texted us, and said that she felt much better. It was such a miracle. The Priesthood is real and I am so grateful for this amazing blessing of the Priesthood of God that the Lord gives. We spent much of Saturday evening out seeking with faith and talked to a lot of Chinese people. I love them so much.

Sunday was also another awesome day!!! We had 3 investigators that attended church. Bao Jie Mei, Jerry and Ada all attended church!!! This past Sunday was the special Chinese Sacrament Meeting that we do as a group once-a-month. It was awesome and I felt the Spirit really strong! Sunday night we had a lesson with Zhao Di Xiong and his wife Susan, our 2 new investigators that we found this past week! Zhao Di Xiong is actually a former investigator that Elder Crowther and I taught. We talked to him again in the park a couple of nights ago with his wife, and set up a time to meet with them! We taught them a little bit about the Restoration. It was a great lesson! Susan said the closing prayer and I felt the Spirit really strong.

I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to represent our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so excited to continue to work hard and to help more of my Chinese brothers and sisters to truly Come Unto Christ. Love you all have a great week!

Elder Willes
