Happy Chinese New Year

Happy New Year dinner with the Xie family
As I write this email, there are fellas all around me yelling and screaming about their League of Legends matches and what not. Bless their souls.

This week was a slow one. Elder Qiu and I are really struggling to find people to teach. He helped me to remember, "Just do your best, and Heavenly Father will take care of the rest." I realized I still over think things a little bit, and the importance of simplicity seems to slip my mind. This week, Elder Qiu and I are going to do our best, and ask Heavenly Father to give us strength to take care of the rest.

Lots and lots of delicious food
Chinese New Years is in full swing. We've already had a full week of members feeding us huge dinners. and this week is full of not only dinners but lunches as well. Chinese New Years is basically a week long of Thanksgiving meals. I'm sure it'll be fun.

The spirit hit me as I read some old conference talks. President Monson once encouraged us to learn what we should learn, do what we should do, and be what we should be. To learn, to do, to be. Heavenly Father gives us the things that are essential to everlasting happiness. It's our choice to accept and act on the counsel He has given to us through His holy prophets. He promises to bless us. Don't you think the creator of the heavens and the earth and stay true to his promise? Prove Him now herewith. Take that next step towards deepening your conversion in Christ.

I love you all. Keep being great examples. Shine so that others can see Christ through you.

Have a blessed week,

Elder CHase Matua
