Well, guess what! KISMET got Baptized!! It was amazing. I have seen her change so much in these past 4 months. When I first met her she was not happy at all. She hated herself, her family, God and everything. She was an English student and saw how happy the missionaries were and wanted to know why. When we met she refused to believe that it was because of the Gospel that we were happy. But as she spent more time with us and other missionaries her heart was softened and she took hope and faith. Her mother sent her to live in Taichung for a little bit. While she was there she felt lonely and she started to use prayer as a way to find faith. And then she felt it. She felt the love of God. From that time forth her faith in herself, the happiness of her family, and faith in God has increased so much. She shared a beautiful testimony after she got baptized. She shines with the light of Christ now. She loves people. She is happy. She feels the joy that God wants for all of His children. She was super-nervous before the baptism. To calm her nerves I taught her some English. Haha I thought it was funny.
We also met another great girl. When we introduced Joseph Smith and Prayer we asked her what she thought about the lesson. She said "I want to pray." And she came to Kismet's baptism and church that weekend :)
I spoke in church...ummm...it doesn't help that my companion is a huge crier.
I am so grateful that I have had this opportunity to serve in Taiwan. I love the people here. I have felt the Spirit daily and I have learned so much.
