I have had such a great experience regarding finding. Before I came, my companion Elder Glazier and his Companion Elder Neild made a street display board about the Restoration. They were only able to use it once because the police came by and told them they were blocking traffic and that they needed a permit to do so. What is amazing is that every effort counts in the sight of the Lord. One person stopped by to look at the display board. Her name is Sister Mercy. She later started taking discussions from the missionaries and was baptized 2 months later, which happened to be last week. Although Elder Glazier and I are Cantonese elders and she is from the Phillipines, he had the privilage to baptize her because she wanted him to. Even though it may have "seemed" to be a waste of time to go buy the wood, a waste of time to buy the screws and assemble this makeshift board, it brought one soul unto Jesus Christ. Though our efforts, creativity, and patience, the Lord can work miracles in our individual lives. Today I challange you to make a way to share the gospel. It doesn't have to be creative, it doesn't have to be time consuming; All it needs to be is sincere. I know as we first pray to find those we can help, the Lord will inspire us to touch their lives. In Hong Kong there are spiritual giants. Looking back, if I grew up in Hong Kong, I don't know if I could stand the adversity's blows. Hong Kong= Busy, Fast-Pace, exciting, bright, shiney, stylish, technological, cheap, loud, creative, large, and rich. How stong my testimony is now, how fortunate I am to have known the gospel, how grateful I am to share what I have with others.
