We found a new way to care for our members and investigators. If we go to their house and they are not home ,we will leave a balloon with a face on it. It is a lot more exciting than a note.
Another thing that I learned this week was to talk to everyone with out respect of persons. It is weird talking to kids. Like jr high schoolers. They are very immature and I find it hard to talk about the gospel with them. But as we were passing a jr high school we talked to a lot of youth. And there was this one girl who was interested in baptism. And she gave us her info and said that we could go visit her family. Well, found out that she does not live in our area. There has been a lot of that lately.
But as we talk to everyone we find those who are prepared!
Sharon didn't go to church last week and she felt like her whole week was out of place. She is pretty much a Mormon. Just need her parent's permission to get baptized. We found that she really liked the parables that Jesus tells.
Yan brought her daughter to a baptism that was held on Saturday. They both really liked it. Yan is still reading the Book of Mormon and has a lot of questions. She is still trying to find answers. Her daughter told her dad that she wants to become a Mormon. She is only seven years old. Hopefully meeting the whole family this week!
There are two part-member families that we are working with. One is the Qi family. The dad is a member. He has a wife and three daughters. We have only been to their house once. But we have been able to establish a great relationship with them. The dad came up to us on Sunday morning and wanted to set up a time to meet with the whole family.
The Dragon Boat Festival, also called Double Fifth Festival, is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth moon of the lunar calendar.
The Chinese Dragon Boat Festival is a significant holiday celebrated in Taiwan, and the one with the longest history. It is one of the most important Chinese festivals, the other two being the Autumn Moon Festival and Chinese New Year.
