Got your letter this week! I love to read those stories, but don't stress too much about it because I can email them now. I just love to hear from you! Thanks so much for your prayers momma, we feel them here everday! No we have not had the chance to meet President Blickenstaff yet but they called us yesterday night to wish my companion happy birthday! (yesterday was his birthday!!) We have interviews with him this wednesday so that should be sweet! I know he is going to really press forward the work here in taiwan, because that is what God has called him to do! We are excited to meet with him and work with him. Yeah I don't have flour on my face because I didn't lose :D Haha that was a fun day!
(Caleb was playing a game that you have to get flour all over your face if you lose)
Sounds like you are keeping busy like usually! Hope everything is going smooth.
As for Elder Washburn and I everything is going super great! We are working hard and really seeing lots of miracles! We are talking to tons of people every week and finding those people that are prepared to recieve the Gospel. We have also been strengthening our relationship with the ward as well which has been going great. Right now we have a few investigators with baptismal goals who are doing really great!
I am growing to love missionary work more and more every single day. I feel like time is going by to fast and I don't have enough time to accomplish everything I want to do! I love being on the Lords errand and telling everyone about his Gospel. It is the most rewarding and compelling work we could ever do! I love my mission!
Well Our time is about up! Love and miss you mom. Hope you have another good week this week! Thanks for all the music too! No special requests, My translator was getting fixed so I haven't been able to listen to it for awhile but I just downloaded it all today so I will listen to it soon. Thanks so much!!!! Love you!! -Elder Ripley
Wow the temple looks great! That is super cool that Jack is going to be painting the leaves, bet he is pretty excited about that!
I loved your story about putting up flags, I can just see everyone laughing so hard at that because it is so true!
I am also really excited to go swimming in that pool when I get home, leave the last part, (at least filling it up) for after I get back so I can remember starting it as well as finishing with you :D Love you dad! You are the best. It really is amazing how the church continues moving forward in such powerful ways. The gospel is being proclaimed to the ENTIRE world! What an exciting thing to be a part of! I am so grateful that I could be on the Lords errand during this special time. I love my mission so much. I am already scared of the thought of taking off my badge Dad. Hope everything is going well. Have another great week. Love you! -Elder Ripley
