Give Honor to the Sabbath Day and Reap Blessings

Hello everyone,                                                                                    Aug 31, 2015
I was informed this was was National Dog Day, so to all those happy k-9's out there, wishing you a good one! (Porter loves dogs!!!)
 This week was great! We were able to see so many miracles! :) That's the best kind of week you can have right? We weren't able to meet lot's of new people this last week but we did see lot's of miracles with our investigators and LA's so that was lot's of fun!
A really nice restaurant where we ate!!! Great blessing.

We were able to share with 黃 the commandments and she is sooo awesome! Some of them were really hard to accept but she is so prepared. We started with the 10 commandments and she was so funny. She was having a hard time with the fact that we can't worship idols (because that is what everyone does in Taiwan) but by the end of the discussion she was like "You know what I actually don't even like 拜拜'ing those idols, it's actually kind of scary. Not to mention I told like the 香." So that solved that problem!

 And then we started on the Sabbath  Day which was a really hard one for her since she always works out on that day. I told her about my experience with sports and choosing not to work out on Sunday and the blessing I saw from keeping the Sabbath Day holy. When I finished bearing testimony of that she said "Alright I will move all exercise to Saturday. What!?!?! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!!!!!! We still have lot's of work to do but she is so awesome!
Porter committed to never working out on Sunday. Keeping the Sabbath holy blessed him immensely in his athletic career.

Also another huge miracle was 馬. This is the one that was hearing all the voices. We met her this week and she was still have quite a few problems. But we had a awesome member help us 陪課 and she just told her that the voices weren't real and not to listen to them. 馬 was pretty surprised by that but she said she would do it. At the end of the week we met with her again and she had improved so much! She still hears things but not she ignores it and focus on reading the scriptures and praying instead of listening to the voices. That is a night and day difference! I am so happy for her and I believe if she continues to improve like this that she will for sure be able to be baptized. God's power is so great. 

Well that's about all for now. I love you all so much! 加油!
