Great Week!:)

Hi everybody!
We had a wonderful week! I will first start out by saying that it is so incredible to be with companions that speak pretty much every language;)!! (French, Haitian Creole, Korean, and English). There were so many instances this week when Sister Shin and Sister McArthur were able to use their native languages!! We had a cool experience where we were knocking on a lady's door. We introduced ourselves as missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She looked at us like we were crazy and with her broken English she told us she wasn't interested. Right then, Sister McArthur said something to her in Haitian Creole (Sister McArthur is from Haiti) and she just lit up and gladly told us to come in! Turns out this lady is from Haiti as well! It was so cool! They were able to communicate and connect really well. We are going back tonight to teach them more! It was so awesome! There was another time where we were walking and there was this Asian couple.  Sister Shin stopped to talk to them and asked where they were from and they said Korea! So they were able to have a wonderful conversation as well. It is so cool to see the Lord working through his missionaries!

Tuesday we had specialized training for Sister Shin! It was a long but very good training! Sister Shin is doing so well! She is adjusting so fast and is such a powerful and strong missionary! I just love her to death!

Wednesday we went to the temple! That was so special! I love the temple and the personal revelation you are able to receive when you go! I am so grateful that we get to go so often in our mission! We also met with Rachel on Wednesday. She is this really sweet girl who has such a strong desire to do the right thing. Her parents don't agree with her desire of getting baptized but we will pray super hard!
Keep her in your prayers! I know everything will work out and that everything that happens is on the lords timing!

On Friday we were out contacting and we met two really awesome people! The first man is named Tom. He was waiting for his son by the metro station and agreed to hearing our message! He is super neat and so family oriented! We are so excited to be able to meet up again with him! The second man is named Ali. He was smoking when we approached him and was standoffish at the beginning but his interest grew as we were taking with him! I love love love getting to meet all these new people and the influence they have in my life.

Kadia and her family are doing so great! We were able to meet with some more of her family and give them a tour of the Visitors' Center!! They are all just ready to accept Jesus Christ and take His name upon them!

Well, this week we had a lot of trainings with a similar theme, which is Missionary Work and the Atonement. I am so grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the role that the Atonement plays in Missionary Work. The Atonement truly does cover everything big or small. 
Love you all!
