Monday November 14, 2016


What's goodddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd.

The klan's all doing great, enjoying life in Austin

Not a lot of time, buttttttt highlights from the week:

We found out that Trump won the election during an RC lesson with Tand S....That was kinda nuts. Taiwanese people care more about it than Americans.

A set a solid baptismal date for Christmas Eve! Him and E both came to church this week. A is seriously incredible. We asked him what he thought the purpose of life is and he said "learning and growing in families and that we should share this beautiful message with everyone"

We have a couple investigators named T and J. Which is purely coincidence. 

G went to TGI Friday's on Saturday night and came by our apartment bringing us the leftovers. Hence the ribs and other delicious american food.

I know a lot of other stuff happened this week but can't remember........

Look at elder Thomas's email for other stuff

Love you all have a great week!

Elder Nelson

Notes from E. Thomas.......

good morning family 

im currently amazed that its already November of 2016... 

once in awhile i have moments where im like... 

oh yeah.. im a missionary.. this is super cool... 

or like.. oh yeah i speak Chinese! 

i think about where i would be in life without my mission and im very happy i made the choice to come here. 

days go by very fast... ive already been in this erea for 8 weeks... 


ive seen a lot of miracles here with elder nelson. 

these last 2 weeks we have been able to help 16 new people come to church and three of them set baptism goals :) one in particular is named A and he is so amazing 

we asked him what the purpose of life is and he answered to learn and grow with our families.... 

we were like..... yeah... thats right... 


then at church he was asked to say the closing prayer and in his prayer he asked heavenly father to help us be able to come to church every week to learn more... 

elder nelson and i were knuckle bumping during the prayer XD

meanwhile president drove over from the mission office to meet our Filipino investigator who placed our pigeons which is the chinese way to say... never showed that was awkward... 


elder nelson and i spent 30 minutes sharing what we wrote about the mtc in our journals and realized we wrote the wrong character for the chinese word "chinese" and he blames me but im pretty sure it was his fault. so we argued about who asked who how to write the character... its one of those -we will never know till heaven -things...  

i was just reminded: this week we were fed noodles soaked in octopus ink... which was.. interesting.
