Week 62

Yesterday my companion and I were walking around at the park. It was late, and it had just stopped raining. Not very many people were outside, and so we had decided to go back to the church. We noticed a girl opposite from us exercising and we said hello to her. She stopped. We started talking to her, and found out that she was a member but hadn’t gone to church in years. She didn’t have any friends at church anymore, and the missionaries that she was good friends with had gone home. I could tell that she was embarrassed to be talking to us and that she hadn’t been to church in a while. It was so good talking to her. We prayed with her and invited her to come to an activity with us next week. She agreed and she gave us her phone number. You never know what people are going through in their lives and what a simple act of reaching out can do. It was so cool that we were able to talk to her yesterday. I like being a missionary because of miracle moments like these. They happen everyday.

I love you guys. Have a great week. xo

Love Sis Lee

Week 61

I have owed my family a mass email for about a couple move calls now. ha

Weeks highlights:

We met with a former investigator this week that has come back ready to get baptized. For real! She was a self-contact a couple of weeks ago, and came to the office looking for some peace and happiness in her life. She brought a friend to chruch this week, as well as some hair product for my hair. ha She works at a hair salon so she thinks of nice gifts like that. She really likes prophets, and it’s exciting to see her countenance dramatically change from lame to happy.

Every Friday morning at 7:45 we skype with the Taipei mission. We are working with them to create a new family history pass along card. It’s been fun drawing up cards, and writing vision statements. The Mission presidents are approving it today so hopefully they like it.

Yang Didi (my little friend that got baptized) played catch with us in the church parking lot, and it was a blast. I still haven’t given you guys pictures, but he is so fat and oh so cute. Another recent convert went and got ice cream sundays with us and afterwards we relaxed and enjoyed each others company. We are working on Yang Didi's Mom.... Forever Families!!

The ward is struggling, but it’s a good thing we have three super duper companionships assigned to the ward. ha Hopefully things start turning around.

On Friday night we were contacting and we prayed to find a good referral worth giving away. We walked around forever hoping to bump into somebody, and at the very end of the night we spotted a girl on her scooter over by the hospital. She didn’t have any religion, and was looking for purpose in her life. Didn’t live in our area. So we said a prayer with her, and sent her information to the neighboring city. I learned on my mission that God really does answer our prayers.

i love you guys,

This chruch is true.

Week 60

 Sister Liang

Hi Mom... It is really good to hear from you.

I feel so bad about not sending home good emails. The family only knows 1/16 of what really happens. Ha I will just tell everyone stories when I get home.
My new companion is great. She is Sis Liu’s best friend and so we get along great. We don’t have any investigators that are looking to get baptized right now and so it will be fun finding and people together. The ward mission leaders girl friend is her trainer and so everyday he is calling us and fellowshipping us. ha (that sounds weird in English) Anyways... yeah she is great and its going to be a great move call.

That is so so cool about Asako!! I wrote her an email and I am really excited to hear back from her. :) It’s going to be so fun when she comes to visit.

We had a baptism this week. His name is Yang Didi. He is 10 years old and is like an old man in a little body. He is like a Taiwanese Joseph Smith. His baptism went so smooth and he gave the most adorable little testimony. We are now teaching his mom and working on an eternal family. I’ll send pictures.

I love you guys so much and miss you all. Have a great week. Mom I can’t wait to talk to you on Mother’s Day. :)

Love, Sister Lee

Week 59 - Happy Easter!

Don't we look Pretty!!
Hi Everyone,

We got to watch conference this weekend. It was really great. We also planned an activity for the ward. We had a little lunch right in between the sessions on Sunday and it was a hit. We had 60 members, 9 investigators, 15 recent converts and 5 less actives come. We were thrilled. We defiantly know how to get our party on. J

For the last three days I have been in a three-some because a sisters old companion was training and so she came with us. It sounds fun, but I was so bummed because it was the last three days I had with Sis Hancock and it was different with Sis King. It ended up being ok, but it was just a weird end to a move call.

I am already a little home sick. Being with Sis Hancock was like being on vacation. It was really good though. We worked hard…I needed a little break after being with my other companion. Once I’m with my new companion I will be all focused again. (Its not like I am unfocused? But anyway, I only have three move calls left, and then I am home.

Thanks for the AWESOME package I loved it! All week I hid Easter Eggs around the house, and my companion had fun finding them. :)

P.S. Sister Hancock has all the pictures we took with our Easter Baskets. Bummer! I will have her send you some.

I love you all tons! Happy Easter!
Sister Lee
