My name is Sister Hunter Kai Malie Ellis-Lui-Kwan and I have been called as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been assigned to labor in the California San Jose Mission and will be there for the next 18 months!

Welcome Sis. Young! : )
This week we had transfers and the lovely, wonderful Sis. Fraser got transferred. We cried. Haha it was kind of really awkward. I'm going to miss her but it's okay because I got a wonderful new companion from Heber, Arizona. Her name is Sis. Young. (Sorry, I don't have a picture just yet!) But she is just great. She's been out 11 months and she is just an amazing missionary! I don't think she has a mean bone in her body.
Our week has been great. We were able to get a ton of work done and teach a bunch of lessons. It was so much fun. And here's the greatest part... the little girl that we're teaching who we keep trying to get her to talk to her mother about getting baptized...well, she did! :) Not about getting baptized but about church!! YAY!! :) Oh I was so happy for her! We asked her how it went and she said her mom wasn't mad or anything. What a tender mercy! :) Then, that wonderful little girl prayed and thanked Heavenly Father at the end of the lesson for the missionaries who encourage her to talk to her mom. Ahh my heart.
Onto another stud of the week. This other little boy we've been teaching. He's almost 13. He's going to hopefully get baptized within the next month, we're still trying to work out a solid date for him but he's so hilarious. He said, "Girls are so weird all they want to do is shop." His brother told him, well what about the sister missionaries they do all kinds of stuff and he responded back and said, "Well, not them. They're beautiful!" Haha. Love it! So basically we, the sister missionaries, are in the same "beautiful" category as his sisters and his mom. Haha. Totally awesome!
Another wonderful thing that happened this week was while we were contacting! We were headed back to the car and we decided to contact this one last person. We handed him and mormon.org card and went on our way. Then we heard him say, "You know what..." And my whole body tensed. I was so nervous he was going to yell at us or something and thought, please no, this night can't end with that! Then he said, "Would you like some free ice cream samples?" WHY YES WE WOULD!! :) Haha! Only in Hollister does an ice cream man offer you free samples at the end of the night! It was awesome.
Well, this week was full of random things that just made everything about it entirely great. I can't wait to see what this next week holds! I hope you all have a great week as well. I love you all!
