July 25, 2016


How are you guys doing?

Wait so am i allowed to vote from over here?

Still in An Ding...move call comes in 2 weeks

Luckily no dysentery this week haha

lol when i say sister teh wrecked our apartment she was just shocked at a lot of the stuff that's pretty normal here in Taiwan. Our aparment is actually better than the majority of apartments so she'll be even more shocked when she visits her second and third

I hadnt realized the Lees had already moved!

Yeah Senor i did not understand what the editors want you to do but it sounds like a major pain

This week was a good week. It was great to be able to get out and actually preach the gospel, which was something that we couldn't do last week haha. We were able to meet a really cool bro on the way home one night named Danny S. He's a sophomore in college and is studying to be a tour guide at the college in our area. It's summer break for him so this last week along we met 3 times. He told us he wants to join a christian church and hopes that the Book of Mormon can help him to be able to feel of the existence of this God. The first day after we met with him he had already read 6 chapters in the Book of Mormon. Said he's gonna come to church this next week. 

He was definitely the most "golden" of all of the investigators that we found this last week. Besides that, this bro who we tracted into one night came to church this sunday. His last name is tian. His mom is christian and he went to a christian church when he was young but hasn't gone in a long time. He seems to have no purpose/direction in his life. He's just like work, eat sleep repeat. And we were like dont you think theres more than that? and he's like is there? And we're like let us tell you about a really cool Plan. we'll see how he starts to progress.

We tracted into another bro who's christian but he refused to read from the book of mormon until we told him where in the Bible it talks about the Book of Mormon. Also met a family of 3 with a mom and her two kids. They are a part of a religion called 一貫道 (yi guan dao - doesn't have an english sorry). Basically it's a religion where they worship alll the gods. Like Jesus Christ, buddha, they cover their bases and worship it all. And theyre the hardest people to teach because they're always like nah its all the same! I already know it all! 

Brother W is still doing well. We're hoping to have his baptismal interview this week.

We got a referral from the states this week saying there was a kathy chen in the US who said for us to go visit her nephew and his dad. So we bike out to this really far part of our area and then there's this dude yelling in Taiwanese at us to never come back so that was exciting.

Besides the normal 'ing of the , most special thing was a mormon broadway group came to taiwan this week called synergy. It was a great opportunity to bring investigators and less active members to. It was weird seeing so many white people. One of the guys had served in this mission so he helped them to translate haha. It was fun, they did some classic brodway stuff, classic rock, country, michael jackson, etc. The Taiwanese people ate it up.

quick thought from 1 Nephi 13:16 " And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld that the Gentiles who had gone forth out of captivity did humble themselves before the Lord; and the power of the Lord was with them." iaidk when i read this verse it just stuck out to me the connection between humility and power. It is only through humbling ourselves that we can obtain that power of the Lord in our lives.

Love you all have a great week!
