General Conference weekend!

Hi all,
The past week has been a bit rough that nobody would listen to our message. I don't even know how many doors we knocked on. But it was still a pretty good week with General Conference.
I got sooooooo sick last Wednesday. I just got a really bad sore throat that I woke up in the middle of the night. I could hardly speak. Sister Choi told me to call the doctor, and the only thing the doctor told me was to use salt water. I was like "Are you kidding me?". I was dying, so I asked Edler Larsen to give me a Priesthood blessing. I wasn't healed immediately but was given strength to continue to work. I tried all the medicine that I had, but they didn't help. Elder Larsen gave me essential oil, supplement, honey stick, and a bottle of honey. The honey stick was totally a magic! My sore throat was completely gone after eating it.
Last Saturday was my click day #4! It has been 4 months since I went into the MTC. And it was General Conference day also. All the talks were great. When President Eyring announced that the next speaker would be Elder David A. Bednar. I was like "YES!". His talk was awesome!!!! Between the morning session and the afternoon session, the Asian family that we have been teaching took us out for lunch. A family in our ward went also. They remembered me saying in Testimony Meeting that I missed Chinese food, so we had lunch in a Chinese restaurant! DIM SUM! I was sooooooooo happy. I felt like home. Most people working there spoke Cantonese, and I enjoyed listening their conversation. But believe it or not, I've lost my Cantonese. Anyway, the lunch was great! I really do love this family a lot. I had never prayed that often for any of my investigators before, but I have been praying a lot that I will be inspired to know what I have to do to help them come closer to Christ.
General Conference was great! I'm looking forward to the next General Conference already. Even though I was born and raised in the Church, I didn't pay attention to any General Conference until 2 years ago. My mom used to say that I was "cold-blooded" just because of the face that I wouldn't cry when I listened to any talk. It was simply because my heart wasn't softened yet. Now I cry even when I read the Ensign because I can feel the Spirit strongly. While watching the General Conference, I could feel that the Spirit filled the whole chapel. And I know that President Thomas S. Monson is chosen by God to guide us in these latter-days. I'm grateful for the Gospel in my life. I'm grateful that my grandpa joined the Church years ago so that I was born and raised in the Church. I'm grateful that I can serve the Lord as a full-time missionary. I love the gospel. I love my Savior and Redeemer. And I love you all! Have a good week.
