Facebook is now part of my mission!

Hi Everyone,                                                                                                     Jan. 28, 2015

Well this week was full of awesome things. At the beginning of last week we headed out to ZhuBei for our specialized training. There we received some super awesome pointers of how we can be better missionaries and more effective. I think this was a super inspired training too haha, the temple sister's gave us some advice on small things that will help us have better Chinese which really helped. And the assistants gave the most effective useful training you could ask for: finding in the rain. Especially being in XiangShan where the wind is super strong, when it rains the last thing you want to do is go outside so that was super helpful.
This guy is one of my favorite persons here!
Ward Party...my first experience with digua

 We had our District meeting this week and we are just full of culture! We have 3 Americans and 1 Malaysian, 1 from New Zealand, and 1 from Taiwan so that is a huge party tonight. Also WE HAVE FACEBOOK! We are asked to use it everyday and make contact with our investigators and such. It is really  different and will take a little getting used to. When we set up our new account we had to shut down our old one. So that is why if you want to look on my page it will not be there. FYI.

Love serving here and love this man

 Also this week I went on exchanges with one of my favorite missionaries ever. Elder Huang! He is the old assistant now our Zone Leader out here in ZhuNan. We had a blast and a half. He is a great missionary and really showed me some new ways to do missionary work that are super effective. It was really awesome as well because he is Taiwanese so he was able to answer a lot of cultural questions. Oh man, so much fun.
This says China doesn't it?

 Also we will be having W's baptism this Saturday! I am so stoked and so is he. He passed his interview with flying colors and is ready to enter into the covenant of baptism. I am so proud of him and this awesome decision he is making. Then the week after our other investigator J will be baptized! So needless to say, this is going to be a really awesome couple of weeks. Today we are in Taipei, so we went to the temple which was so incredible! And now we are off to have an adventure.
Our new district!

 I hope that you are all well and that this week is full of some great missionary experiences for you. The work is true and it is hastening! Really fast! I hope that we will all do our part to honor our covenants and do our best to share the message of the gospel with everyone we meet! I love you all and hope that you all are well!
