We went to the beach with Sharon and the other Sisters. So much fun :))
Our investigators have been disappearing one by one, but God is still being merciful and everyday gives us a little glimpse of hope. We meet people who are just awesome and we have a lot of opportunities to share our testimonies. That is one thing that I really liked this week. Being able to share a heartfelt testimony to people I love.
The ma gong elders had an investigator who was going to move to our area next week and her baptismal date was the weekend she would get here. Her name is Lauren and she is awesome. So we started calling her periodically to friendship her. Then we found out that she is moving to Canada for a few months. But then the elders called us and said that President would like her to be baptized in Ma Gong, come to church for the one weekend that she will be in San Min so that when she comes back from Canada she will have friends. So that means there won't be a baptism on the 25th. But good news is that the xiang gang elders have someone that they are working with that is getting ready to be baptized. She will be moving into our area next week. She is not on date yet, but we will help her get there.
Sister Daknis was sick on Friday with a fever so we stayed inside for most of the day.
I have learned a lot about the importance of studies. I wish that I could express the importance of daily feasting on the word, but there are no words to put to it. DO YOUR SPIRITUAL HOMEWORK. And you will be blessed with knowledge, light and strength. Here are some quotes that I found that I would I would share:
"The discipline contained in daily obedience and clean living and wholesome lives builds an armor around you of protection and safety from the temptations that beset you as you proceed through mortality." -Elder L. Tom Perry If any of you are wondering how to keep your family safe from the bad influences of the world.
"Regardless of your calling, you are always a leader, and you are always a follower. Leadership is an expression of discipleship - it is simply a matter of helping others come unto Christ, which is what true disciples do. If you are striving to be a follower of Christ, then you can help others follow Him and you can be a leader." Christ is the best example of a follower and a leader. He followed God's will to the end. If we follow Him we can be a leader to help other follow Him as well. He is the perfect leader, perfect follower, perfect teacher, perfect way, the only way.
Love you all! love Taiwan! love the gospel!
