September 10, 2012

Hey mother dearest! Watching the ASU game at Pauls sounds like it was a good time! Blake even got to stay up late, wow! What a lucky guy! He probably gets to stay up later than me these days! Haha I got a pretty good laugh out of those pictures of Dad and scout with the discs on their eyes! Yeah that is a good idea, moving that trampoline over to darcis, they will get some good use out of it! Tell Aunt Alice and grandma that I say hello! That is so great that Rachelle came to say hi! I miss her! The floss you sent me was perfect! I love that kind, they don't have the good stuff like that at the store we live by. So thanks abunch!! Also, I am going to use the proactiv this week and see how it goes so thank you for that too! Your lectures on faith class sounds pretty fun and interesting! You will have to let me know what you are learning there. You asked about my watch-yes it did break but I recently got a new one so no worries. And I have not met a Taylor Powell, tell aunt winnie sorry!
Taiwan is doing pretty great! The weather has been a little warm the past few days which is weird, because it had just started cooling off! Other than that it has been pretty nice though. Not quite as much rain lately but still a few days every here and there. As for our investigators...well..recently we have been having some trouble. The last few weeks we worked to find some new investigators but just couldn't seem to find those prepared people! After some long days of contacting and lots of prayers we had some more success this week. This week my companion and I talked to more people in a week than we have since we became companions! We are set up with some pretty cool people that we met this week so we praying that the Lord will help us help these people progress towards baptism, confirmation, and enduring conversion!
We have been working with some less actives in our ward lately who are doing pretty good. One is a dance teacher! He teaches pop/lock/street dance type stuff! Pretty sweet! I told him he needs to teach me how to do that crazy stuff. We will see how that goes! We are hoping we can help him see the importance of keeping the sabbath day holy and partaking of the sacrament. That is one thing that I was really grateful yesterday. Not that I am not always grateful for it, but yesterday as I was taking the sacrament (and trying to control brother Huang's rascal child) I was thinking what a great promise we have, that we can have God's spirit with us always! What a huge blessing! Well I hope you have an awesome week next week! Love you mom! You are looking pretty stylish these days, especially with the peace sign! :D
