Family and Friends,
I can't believe how fast this last move went by and it was actually the longest move we will have. They extended it an extra week and it went by faster than any move yet. The last move has honestly been the best 2 months of my life. I can't tell you how grateful i am for elder liu and the area. We have worked so hard and built kwun tong up so much. When we got here, they had nothing. Elder liu had been serving here for about 8 months and i was brand new to the area. They had not one investigator, but with our faith, love, and dillegence, that all changed. We became the number one companionship in the entire mission. We worked so hard and had so much fun at the same time. We have made so many friends and loved learning from them and teaching them about this spectacular message. This message we share is so uniquie and unlike anything you will ever hear. It can make anyone feel glad. One thing that i have really focused on this last move was, instead of focusing on guys and teenagers, i tried focusing on families and it honestly has been the best thing. While we still do have a lot of men investigators, being able to watch a family change and grow together has been so amazing. It has changed my life so much. To watch satan work on them and try to drive them away from us, and to see them overcome him and trust in the lord and our message, wokring together has been such a miracle. They aren't just a few people prepared in this world, everyone is prepared! Anyone can be prepared but you have to share this message with them so that they can prepare themself for it. YOU have to have the spirit with you at all times to direct you in your paths, to help you walk the path that hf wants to you walk. Elder liu and i have loved serving with each other and this last week we have made the best of it because we found out that i will be staying in kwun tong to help train a missionary and he will be moving opening a new area in hong kong. Both huge responsibilities, but through this last move we have both grown together and are prepared for this coming move. My new companion is amazing. His name is Elder Fogt from Utah. He lives in Highland. He's way cool, i knew him a little before and we are so excited to serve with each other. It should be excellent. Vincent is doing amazing. He is unreal. He is so prepared but only because we prepared him and SHARED THIS MESSAGE of love and friendship with him. My district is great. The weather in hong kong is cooling down and is suppose to get quite cold, its been really nice not sweating buckets every single day. I love serving so much. My language is coming and im so grateful for that hahah. I can understand a lot more than i can speak. Tones are coming a little slower than i want, but its all good because where he calls he qualifies and i figure i'm doing all that i can and being 100% obedient so thats what the people need to hear right now. We have a few baptisms coming up this week. We have a couple of families and a couple of new rad teenage boys around 19-26 years old. They are all so different. I have really fallin in love with the chinese people. I love them so much. I feel as if i am one of them. This morning we woke up at 4 am and did a hike as a distrcit before we exchanged companions for the last time. We got to the top of Lion Peak and got the opportunity to see all of hong kong and watched the sun rise over 15 million people. I have a funny quote, " God loves these chinese people, because if he didnt he wouldnt have made so freakin many" by: Elder nelson. If thats not funny you need a reality check asap. I about died laughing at that. Because how true is that. I know that hf loves these people and im so glad that through me he can express that love. I am so grateful to be able to serve here in hong kong. A mission was the best idea that i have ever done. It has changed my life for the best and given me so much better out looks on life. We have so much to be grateful for, just to wake up in the morning, to be apart of the only true gospel on the earth. Not everyone has this opportunity to know what we do, you need to share, thats why you have it. If your not sharing it, you are not fufilling your life purpose. Thats why he sent YOU down to the earth, thats why he gave you the opportunity to be apart of this church and if your not sharing it with everyone you know and come in contact with you are a failure. I love you all so much, i want every young man to serve a mission i know it seems long, boring to some, and not worth while, but i PROMISE you that if you give it a try, you will NEVER regret it. Start preparing now. Missionary work was the very first thing talked aobut this last conference. President monsons first address was about missionary work. If you love god, then you will follow the direction that our prophets have given us, they speak for him and if you love him, you WILL follow and do, you will act upon his words. Young men of cedar hills 13 ward or ( whatever the new wards are ) im talking to you right now and all the young men i know. Reality check is that you need to prepare today, right now so that you can be ready to serve the lord when you are 19 years old. Its hard but its worth it. Its so MUCH FUN. I love you and bear testimony to you that hf loves you and is very aware of YOU, he wants you to be happy, to have success, to live your life to its fullest potential, if you dont feel that, that is your fault you need to figure out why, pray to him ask him and he will answer if you have FAITH and a REAL DESIRE. dnc29:6 ( i think could be wrong vincent has my scriptures. I love you all and know as oyu continue on your path, that hf is with you, your path was made for you individually no one else will go through all you do, but he HAS PREPARED A WAY FOR YOU> figure it out and hold tight to the iron rod.
love elder wright.
