This week was awesome! A lot of funny things happened.
I got told I was pretty, to stop following Joseph Smith and to just go back to America and get a wife, and also witnessed a man wiping his dogs bottom which I found odd.
I also sort of noticed I have fallen back into previous eating habits. I am not eating very much again, which is weird because in the MTC there are three big block meals and until now I have been doing, that but recently I have started eating small and drinking a lot of milk. I am not sure if that is good or bad, but it is fun.
We have Brother 莊s baptism this coming Saturday which is super exciting! Zhuang Dx is very prepared. He is converted and I have no idea how. I know I didn't do anything special, so I think it must just be God's hand that guided him. He shared his testimony with us and it was beautiful. One of the coolest miracles I have seen on my mission. I am excited to see more of these with the time I have left.
Thanks for sharing your testimony on forgiveness. I have seen forgiveness take a very important role in my life. I have forgiven before but I find most of the time I am the one that is getting forgiven. I have felt incredible amounts of mercy while I have been out here.
I am worried mom. This time is going by so fast and I am scared. I know for a fact that I am not as far as I should be by now and I know that I have an eternity's worth of space to improve. Doesn't it seem hopeless sometimes? haha.
I am grateful for the Atonement. I feel it is the only reason my lack of progress is acceptable. I am reminded constantly that when it says God chooses the least and lowest to do his work he was talking about me. I am humbled at your faith and testimony as well as love for me. I know that I don't deserve it mom. I know it. But I am so glad to receive it. I am grateful for my family. Both here and there.
Love, Elder Henry David Christensen
