Chapter LVI – Last Week of Training! // 第五十六篇 – 訓練的最後一週

Friday, August 1, 2014

I am running out of time so this will be very, very quick. Things are good here. This is the end of my 9th transfer. On Monday, we will have transfer conference and transfer day is on Wednesday. I might lose a PDay, so we will see! Sister Hadzik and I will probably get split up because this is my last week of training! Yesterday, they announced who was going where for outbound. They used to tell us 2 days before we left where we are going, but now they tell you on the same day. That’s so much better ’cause it’s way less stressful. I remember I was stressed out of my mind and scrambling to get everything ready to leave for outbound.

Anyways, nothing super exciting happened. We are taking tours and teaching people. Our whole teaching pool is basically all Chinese people and 1 German girl. Sister Hadzik is patient though. Even though she doesn’t understand the language, she loves the Chinese people and is so willing to teach them. The German investigator actually came to Temple Square today! Unfortunately, I had to take a Mandarin tour so we had to go on exchanges, so I didn’t get to meet the girl. She sounds very eager to learn though!

The only thing I want to share is this video that came out this last week on the Church website: http://www.mormonchannel.org/video/mormon-messages?v=3701964025001

It is AMAZING. To summarize this video, God is always there. He hears your prayers and He loves you. However, we need to do our own part. We need to put in the effort to find out for ourselves whether or not He really is there. We need to pay attention to the still small voice of the Holy Ghost. This last week, a couple of our investigators dropped us. Yeah I’m disappointed and sad because they said they never got answers, but I guess that’s where our agency comes into play. You won’t receive an answer if you never do anything. If that sincere desire isn’t there and you’re not willing to do all you can to find the truth, then you won’t find your answer. I know God has a plan and I trust Him.

Have a great week everyone! I love and miss you all.

Love,
Sister Olivia Ying

2014年 8月 1日,星期五

我的時間不多,所以這個星期的信會很短。我最近很好。這個禮拜是我第九個搬家期的結尾。這個星期一是我們的搬家大會,然後星期三是搬家日。我下週可能不會有一個準備日,再看看!因為這週是我訓練的最後一個星期,所以我和昊姊妹應該會分開。我們的傳道部會長昨天宣布誰將要調到別的傳道部去。以前的傳道部會長是在你調走的前兩天告訴你地方在哪裡,但是現在的話,他就會在同一天告訴你這點。這樣子比較好,尤其是因為這樣的方式會減輕壓力。我還記得調走的前幾天,我一直感到很多的壓力,也一直在忙忙碌碌地準備好離開猶他州。

這個星期沒有特別的事情發生。我們帶了很多的團體,也教導了一些人。我們的慕道友大部份都是中國人,但其中的一個是德國人。昊姊妹很有耐心。雖然她一點中文都不會,但她還是對中國人有很多的愛心。她總是很樂意地教導他們。對了,那個德國的慕道友今天來過聖殿廣場了!不巧,我在那時需要帶一個中文團,所以我沒有機會認識她。但我聽說她對學習福音很有興趣!

我現在想要跟你們分享的,就是上個禮拜剛出來的教會影片。http://www.mormonchannel.org/video/mormon-messages?v=3701964025001

這部影片很棒!它的重點就是,神是永遠存在。祂會聆聽你的祈禱,祂也愛你。不過我們還得做我們的部分。我們需要努力地追求祂,來知道祂真的是否存在。我們也需要注意到聖靈,祂微小的聲音。我們的一些慕道友上個禮拜決定不要再聽福音的課程。我當然是因為他們沒有得到自己的答案,而有點失望也感到難過。但是我們都有選擇權。你若沒有付出努力,就沒有辦法獲得神的回答。如果你不用真心誠意的態度,或你不願做你所能做的來找到真理,那你就一定不會找到答案。我知道神真的有一個計劃。我信賴祂。

祝你們一週愉快!我想念也愛你們大家!

愛,
應姊妹
