Hello the Family!!! 你們好!!

This week has been a good one, we have been working hard trying to find lots of new people and just going at it preparing souls to hear the gospel.

As far as food goes this week, I had the chance to go to a hotpot with one of the members in another ward that goes by the name of Ryan, this hotpot was a little special because it was a lot of food but it wasn't a buffet, or in Chinese a 吃到飽 which literally means eat to full.  But rather they gave you a big bowl filled with some random veggies, meats, and other things and you do the normal hotpot thing, which is throw it into some boiling broth till its cooked.  Its actually super fun to do but sometimes I get a little impatient with it because I don't really want to wait to eat my food =)

As far as people we are working with, there's come cool people, one goes by the name of Guo or who is a college student at a university in our area.  He was found by the elders before me and Elder Wootan, but he is really cool, has heard all the lessons and is very prepared, however he wants to have a really big something for an answer before he accepts the invitation to be baptized, even though he already has gotten several spiritual "Answers" to many of his prayers... but thats okay, he is still pretty cool and is just about ready to graduate.

Another person that we have been working with is our new RC Brother Huang or 黃弟兄's mother, who has been taking the lessons with him but just hasn't decided on the whole baptism thing.  The hard thing with her is just the fact that she prefers to speak in Taiwanese or 台語 which makes it a little difficult to communicate with her, but we are working on it, and the people in relief society love talking with her so she is cool.

Well that's just about it for this week.  The people are really cool but we just haven't really had a ton of time to be finding new investigators, so heres to hoping theres a little more finding time in the next coming weeks to find some cool people that we get to meet with.

Hope that you are all having a good week and that things are just going well.
Until next week
加油!
Elder Heaton

P.S.
here is a Chinese tongue twister
吃葡萄不吐葡萄皮但是不吃葡萄吐葡萄皮
I may have gotten some characters wrong, but it should sound right =)
