Hello the family!

This week went pretty well, we found some cool people, had some fun events and are preparing for our zone conference where there will be some pretty big changes in this mission because they are releasing a new "rules and clarifications" missionary hand book for the 台中 mission.  There has been a bigger push lately here to try and work with more of the less active members here and so we have been working on trying to get some less actives as well as recent converts to keep coming to church.

The week started pretty well, just business as usual just teaching and during the time between lessons finding some cool people or just making some calls.  But about Wednesday we found out that one of our RC's by the name of 楊弟兄 who got baptized right before I came into the ward, was going to be moving out to 台北 and so we spent a lot of time this week meeting with him preparing him to go to 台北, but the interesting thing is that normally when we meet with him we would usually go out to eat with him, and so because of that, and because he was leaving soon, we went to a lot more expensive places this week, so I spent a lot of money this week.  糟糕  But I'll survive =)

Other than that though I don't really have much to report on what happened this week, it was a pretty average week, nobody really special popped up this week and nobody really specifically dropped out this week.  We have been working with a couple of interesting people this week.  One is by the name of Jesse.  He goes to school at one of the colleges in our area, and is about to graduate, and is majoring in some sort of a fashion design or something like that, kind of interesting.  But he has no real religious background in his life.  He has never really heard any sort of religious stories in his life and so we are working hard on just developing his basic beliefs before moving onto other things.

Well that's all that has really gone on this week, hopefully next week will be a little more eventful and I will have a lot more to say.  The weather he is getting hotter, but as the heat increases I think the prices of fruit drops as they all slowly come into season, so I will be havinga  good time eating all of the cool fruits in the coming weeks. =)

Well hope you all have a great week.  Until next week!
