|P-day trip to the Taipei Zoo!!!|
Here are a few of the happenings with me this week:
1. This week I think I've really felt like we are on the downhill side of things (in a good way). I feel like we've been climbing a mountain for the past few months and we're finally getting to see the beautiful views at the top. We've gotten more investigators, we've gotten better relationships with our members, we've really been working very hard. I think we've also gotten to learn a lot of good lessons in being positive. The Lord is helping us to be humble. He is helping us remember that it is ONLY through Him that we do this work. There literally is no other name by which we can be saved.
2. Mom asked me how much we are teaching each week. We're teaching anywhere from 20-30 lessons a week. We do a lot of teaching on the street. Which is good and it gives us a lot of faith-building experiences but very rarely are the people we meet on the street from our area. We're the queens of sending referrals. We also have to call the APs any time we send a referral so... they might be sick of us by now haha but it's fun to talk with them once a day!
3. I've been thinking about some of the things I like about being in Taipei. Here are a few.Secrets! Something I love about all areas is finding new parts of it. There's always something new to be discovered. A new street to go down a new address to try a new person to contact. It's just so much fun! I love finding new things. I also love seeing Taipei 101 all the time. It's such a beautiful building and they light it up with different colors every night.

a. These surgical masks actually enhance your sense of smell. Especially rancid smells. Don't ask me how it works.
b. There are two choices, adult size, which covers your whole head, or child size, which makes you look like a small duck.
c. Biking while wearing a surgical mask is a completely different sport than biking without one.
I don't think I'll be wearing surgical masks again soon :) Sorry Taiwanese culture! haha
Thank you again for all the love and support! I continue to be stretched, but I'm so grateful to be on a mission:)
Love you all,
