Goodbye Dragon Pool, hello East Side

Last P-Day with BaDe District
What an incredible week. Unfortunately there were a lot of good byes. Fortunately, there were many awesome hello's!

This past week was President Day's last as President. His departing testimony was awesome. He spoke a lot about the family we have as a Taiwan Taipei mission. He is a man of God. One of my favorite things he counseled us on in his testimony was our most important investigators being our own children. I feel a huge sense of urgency and importance in raising a generation of righteousness. All the things we do as missionaries prepare us to become the best parents we can be. I love President and Sister Day, they will be missed. As for our new mission president, I still haven't got the chance to meet him. I feel like it may be a while before I get to because the missionaries down here tend to stay
Peace out w/buddy Martin
down here for a while. I'm super excited about that though.

Oh yeah, I got transferred down to TAI DONG!!! I feel like a very lucky soul. It's every Taipei Missionary's dream to come down here. We are the smallest zone in the mission, but cover one of the biggest areas, I love it. I just feel like I'm a part of a big family down here. My new companion's name is Elder Stephens. He's from Farmington, UT. Great guy. He's only been on island for 2 transfers, so I'm only a bit older than him. We're gonna do some great work together. We live in a 4-man apartment, and we're all just so excited to be in the greatest place on earth. I've already made some awesome friends down here. It's so great. Life is great.

The ride to Tai Dong
I've learned so much these past couple of weeks. I'm actually on my mission. Sometimes I feel like I'm dreaming. It's so great. Sure it's rough sometimes. But I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. It's crazy to think how much Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us. There are times when I feel like I get caught up, I feel like I may be going too fast. Nothing helps more than the basics. I mean prayer and reading the word of God. He provides such perfect ways to feel of His love for us. It's ALWAYS there. Sometimes we have to do some work to find it. I'm glad I've had this chance to be out here to learn more about myself, My Savior, and My loving Father in Heaven.

I love you all and hope you have a blessed week!
