I love you guys so much... Happy Holidays!
Everyone had like the best week of your life’s it sounded like. I am really glad that everyone is so happy and so exhausted. Thanksgiving break is always really fun. It sounded way more fun then Halloween. :)
This week was great! It was power week! It means that we left the door early and we had a special thing that we were focusing on each day. We were supposed to set really high goals and work extra hard. It was a good week, but exhausting. ha As a mission we passed out 1037 Book of Mormons in a day. To legit to quit.
Today was a busy day. It’s the last P-day I have with all my roommates. We ran a ton of errands and got all our Christmas shopping done. Move call is coming up next week, and so we will be split up. It was SOO much fun while it lasted. I made best friends for life with these girls, and some of the best memories of my mission so far have been bonding with this apartment. Good times, good times...
Ren Mama is adorable. We went and visited her last night, and after we had been home for about 20min she called us just to say that she misses us. She asked what we were doing, and we asked what she was doing. She was reading her scriptures with her son. It was so cute. She is an aboriginal and so she taught us how to say, "I love you" (sa har gu gan nu) in her dialect. Sounded nothing like Chinese. It was awesome.
She has had a rough week... we had this feeling that we should go and see her on Monday night, and when she showed up she was balling. balling. balling. she found out that her son was dying. It was a perfect time to get out the scriptures and review the plan of salvation with her. She felt lots better by the time we left and then on Tuesday the Elders went over and were able to give her a blessing. She didn’t come to church on Sunday which we were both really really sad about. Her baptismal date has been push back and so she just might get baptized on Christmas Eve with her son. That would be the best Christmas present ever.
Other highlights from this week:
Traveling up to Shen Gang and everyone being so nice to us and having a lot of success.
Having our less actives randomly show up to English
Going to the Relief Society broadcast with a recent convert
Making Turkey Hands on Thanksgiving as an apartment
Helping a member with her LA son
Meeting lots of Less Actives that were on our ward list
Miracle Chen was too busy to meet with us this week, but we called her everyday and shes doing great.
Its good being a missionary. It was a great week to re-energize for the next move call.
I love you guys a lot. Thanks for praying for me. I’m really happy, and thankful for the time to serve in Taiwan. It’s really humbling. Really humbling. But it’s great. Its perfect, and I am loving it.
Love Sis Lee
