Some good...some sad...and some crazy stuff

Dear Friends and Family,

This week was pretty good. Our new investigator Lee, came to church and brought her son.  It was pretty sweet.  Her son is not deaf.  He really liked church, so he says he will come back next week.

Last night we ran into a lady who is from the Gwong Chau Province.  She is planning on having her baby in Hong Kong.  Her name is Tina.  She wants her kid to join a church.  So she was very happy to run into us on the street!  She scheduled to meet us this Wednesday with her husband.
Sadly, our investigator Mr.Wong was not able to be baptized right now because of some pressure and opposition from his family.
So here is a crazy story.  Last month when we had summer missionaries, my companion had a run in with some guy from Chi Fu.  The guy had pretty good English and he was mocking my companion and the summer missionary.  I was not there for that part, but later that night when all four of us missionaries were together,  we ran into him again.  He approaches my companion and starts saying some rude stuff to him. Then the Elder whips out an English Class flier and tells him to come to English Class to improve his English. The guy was super offended because he is prideful about his English, so he said some British cuss words to us that we did not totally understand until we later asked an Elder from England.  Anyway we got on the bus and escaped from that guy.  I thought we'd never run into him again...

However, two nights ago he saw us in Chi Fu and started following us around.  Eventually we go into the mall to go to the bathroom.  Before I go in, Sister Chan (the deaf member) walks by and we start chatting with her.  As we are chatting, the crazy guy comes up to the same Elder as before, and gets in his face.  The words that came out of his mouth were startling.  He was cursing left and right. The guy was not happy at all.  At the end he walks away.  As he walks he whistles to get our attention and then sticks his middle finger up.  Sister Chan saw the middle finger and she was in shock. Anyway, was a bit humerous. 
Love you all,
Elder Phillips

  1. Sounds interesting. I have found that when God is working the hardest is when people "buck" the gospel. They do not want to change (The Advisary makes sin fun for a reason). The anger comes from within, their inner battles.
