Hello the family!

Well this week went by really well.  We were working hard trying to stay diligent and as one of our big focuses right now we have been trying our best to be able to find new investigators every week.  It has been fun and we have been able to see miracles because of it.

Well this week was also kind of weird because we knew that transfers were coming at the end of the week, and one of the members here who likes to help the missionaries kept saying because I had been here in Dong gang for about 5 months now that I was going to be the one to move.  So of course me and my companion just kept saying that nothing was going to happen, mostly joking, and we just kind of went through the week, however the topic was brought up multiple times during the week.

Starting on Tuesday we were working hard to be able to find some good new investigators, we went out tracting, we tried to get on Facebook with little success and so to end the day we still hadn't found anybody, but we were able to meet with some investigators and had some good lessons.  Once again the topic that I might move was brought up...

Wednesday we of course had our English class and as it was the last week of transfers we had our English Party.  It was lots of fun and we had it as a Birthday Party theme.  We played some party games and had some snacks and cake with a little bit of a gift exchange and all in all it was a pretty good time.  it was really good to see everyone in the English class and we had an awesome spiritual share about forgiveness to end the party, but that member was there and once again brought up that I was probably the one that was going to move...

Then the really big thing that happened this week was that our investigator that lives in our furthest away area was finally able to pass her Baptismal interview!!! woohoo! we were super excited for her and we were able to really get a good lesson with her explaining once again the need for baptism and blessings that come from it and she was super excited for it.  She said that her son was going to come down for it and everything should be good!! Woo

Well the rest of the week was more of the same, just doing the missionary work waiting for Saturday night when we would finally know the results of transfers and see what was going to happen.  Finally Saturday rolled around and as we get in the door, we got ourselves some good ice cream and headed up to the roof to wait for the call... but before we were even out our door heading for the roof we get a text from our zoneleaders, saying that there were no changes in transfers for now because it was going to be extended to wait for some of the missionaries that were having problems with their visas.  haha, lots of suspense for nothing, but it really made me laugh. =)

Well I have some more time now to be in dong gang and to bring more miracles down here, so I'm excited to still be doing the work.  I know that this church is true and I know that Taiwan needs the Gospel, that is why I am here and that is what I am doing!!

Love you all!
