Carrie got baptized! Carrie is in the Qing Shui branch. She is awesome! The baptism was a very uplifting experience. We had our investigator, Grace, come to it. She is 19 years old. When we invite her to do things or to come to places - she won’t come unless the Elders are there. She is obsessed with them I swear. But she is opening up to us sisters as well. The Spirit was so strong and you could tell that she felt it. She came to church on her own the next morning. That was a total miracle.
We got locked out of our house this week. We went out running at the elementary school in the morning. We don't take a key with us because we have a spare in an umbrella. Well, we checked the umbrella and there was no key. So we waited for about 2 hours for the locksmith to answer his phone. We met a lot of cool people out at the local park. Taiwanese people are awesome! Everyone here is so kind and generous. Really, like the other day we were contacting and we ran into this girl and her mom. She was super sweet, after sharing a little about the gospel she gave us bread that she just bought and a drink. I am going to be more like that when I get home.
Updates on investigators:
Chen jie mei: we had dinner at her house this week. She has been super busy with work and taking care of her grand kids. But she was able to read some of the Book of Mormon this week. We have taught her about prayer a lot but she is still doesn't know how to do it.
Ming Ling: we have been on and off meeting with Ming Ling but last night she was so into the Book of Mormon and wanted us to read with her. She shared with us her life goals. Most of them were like, "be more charitable...humble...help family be stronger." Very excited to keep on meeting with her.
We had a fun FHE. Good food and games :)
