Week 75

This is going to take forever to load all of these pictures so I will tell you about my last two weeks.

First off You Meng Ting is BAPTIZED! She is so solid. She has such an incredible ability to understand doctrine. She has such great prayers and that is why I am convinced she progressed so fast is because she learned everything on her own with the help of the spirit. The day of her baptism there was a crazy crazy lightening and thunderstorm that actually fried all of the office computers. ha It didn’t scare her though, she came to the church two hours early for her baptism. We had a great night. We went out to dinner with her and we all made a pack that September 2013 we would go to see the northern lights in Alaska. She is so great. She loves church because of all the friends she has met and is getting fellowshipped to death. Everyone loves her. Anyways. It was one of the highlights of my week last week. I just didn’t have time to tell you guys about it. ha

My little recent convert also came and went proselyting with us last Saturday. He is SOO cute. He was so brave and talked to everyone. We taught this less active Guo Jeimei and she loved him. She hasn’t been to church for a month or more and she totally came last Sunday. It was cool. He came and went proselyting with us this last weekend too. He is adorable.

This week we saw a lot of miracles. We didn’t have any investigators last week, and now we have enough to stay busy. It’s crazy the ebb and flow of the work. Rei Xiu. The cute little recent convert missionary came with to be missionaries. Anyways his mom is way interested and we are both really excited to start teaching her.

We are meeting with the Bishop to talk activities. I am so excited. Do you know how long I have been waiting for this invitation? he he Sometimes you just have to be patient, and things all work out. I feel like my work is almost done in this area. He taught a great lesson about the importance of having friends in the ward, and so after church I just talked to him about the importance of ward activities and how it brings unity and an opportunity to meet new friends. Anyways... I’m excited.

The RSP is a doll face. Melody our last week baptism already has visiting teachers. So cool!!

I had my first break down this last Thursday... I had just gone to dinner with Sara, and was so happy. After dinner we talked to her about eternal marriage, and her future lds family. I was so happy, after she left for institute I had a 10 min breakdown in the bathroom and just realized that cool moments like that are coming to and end quickly for me here in Taiwan. It just makes me sad sometimes.

Today we went to Sara’s work and she did our hair for us. It’s my companions birthday on Wednesday and so we started her birthday week celebration. We went shopping and out to eat at the Modern Toilet. It was a pretty fun day. :)

I love you guys... I can’t wait to see you all. I still feel like I have forever left, but whateva. haha


See you soon. I hope you like all the pictures!

Week - 74

Bahh!! I am coming home!! I TOTALLY feel like I have three more months on my mission. I seriously feel like its forever away. I still have three weeks. There is a lot that could be done in three weeks. We still have a lot of work to do in our area.

But then every once in a while my companion will say stuff like: "Well now you only have 2 more P-day’s left." I kinda freak out. Ha

Just so you know…I am leaving everything I have worn out and wont use. It’s weird that I literally have nothing to my name? It’s not a fun feeling. haha
Any last requests for things from Taiwan?

I LOVE YOU, and am SO grateful for all the love and support I have gotten on my mission. I would not have been able to do it without you... Seriously!

Love you,
Sister Lee

Week 73

My favorite treat! Its squishy and so stinken good.... 
You guys will all have a chance to eat it.

This is the little sign leading up to the little village we went hiking to.

Me and Sara. We have the same t-shirt. Bah. 
She picked it out? :)

Sara was way excited to bring bubbles. 
We blew them and took a lot of really fun pictures.

I am really happy!
Today my recent convert came and spent the whole day with us. She is so stinken cute... She is behind me on another computer just messing around waiting so we can play after email. I love her. I can’t wait to tell you more about her story when I get home.

I only have about a month left, but it feels so far away? I went up to the Liston’s house last night and talked to them for a while. It was a lot of fun, and even though we talked about home it still didn’t feel like it was close at all.
I am playing with Sara and so I don’t have a lot to time to write, but I hoped you like my pictures...

We had a great week finding former members and seeing success.

We also had some cute Young Women with us for a day, and it was a blast being able to go do some missionary work with them.

We also had a nail painting party that was a blast, and it was so great seeing Recent Converts and Investigators there.

I love you all!! Thanks for your prayers.

Love You!

Week 72

I spend so much time at this place. It my favorite store in Taiwan. I took pictures so you could see it. We call phones, eat, meet new friends, use the ATM, and buy stamps here. It’s everything you could want and more. It’s just around the corner of the church.

I don’t know what to tell you other then my favorite parts of my week.

Monday- I got to see my investigators and missionary friends. Oh the blessing of living in the mission home area! It was such a fun day!! We ran around tracking down less actives, and everyone we bumped into was either looking for us, or we were looking for them.

Tuesday-Even though are recent convert was ridiculously busy she still managed to find time to come to the church to surprise us with some treats to say thank you for helping her get baptized.

Wednesday-English class was a blast not only because I we played games but friends ages 9 to 60 all participated in the animal game. I was dying. They were all so cute, and so brave. I was a proud teacher.

Thursday- A handful of members from China came to tour the church! It was their first chapel they had ever seen. It was incredible to see their faces as they looked around. It made me so grateful to be in Taiwan serving a mission. I can’t wait until China opens.

Friday-We went on our less active hunt again, and we couldn’t find anyone, so we decided to tract near by. We came to a street said a prayer, and both my companion and I agreed to turn right and start on the right side of the street. We started at the top and went all the way down the bottom with no success. As we were walking back to our bikes the house we had parked in front of had a family just get home. As we started talking to the Mom we found out that she had contacted the missionaries last year, and recognized that us meeting her that night was a sign that she needed to start meeting with us. It was the very last house of the night. :)

Saturday- We went out to lunch with our Recent Convert and his mom. Our other Recent Convert came back from Taibei so we could meet with her, and another one of our RC missed us so she came to the church and put off her plans so she could spend the night with us at the baptism. Our incredible investigator came to a baptism as well, and loved it. She is way excited for her own baptism in a couple of weeks.

Sunday-We visited the Liston’s at dinner and had a great talk with them. They are incredible. Melody also came to church and we had an incredible lesson with her afterwards. My little RC sat next to me in sacrament and I gave him a coloring Paige of Nephi building a boat. He drew me a picture of my self, and my nose took up half of my face. He wanted to wear my CTR ring during church, and so I wore his. I really likes it. I am giving it to him before I leave.

I love you guys.
Have a great week.

Tiffany was confirmed in church this sunday and gave an awesome testimony about how much she loves the church.

We were in a 4 some for three days and even though it was crazy it was the best. The bigger the better.

We had an incrediable stake musical fireside!! We had a couple of new converts there and they had a blast. It was so so well done! We were really impressed. There was about 20 missionaries who sang, and it was a lot of fun playing with friends.

Ok that's all for now!!
