Last Monday we went to the BEACH for P-Day! Except for the fact that it was the beach, it wasn't anything too exciting. I live in the coolest place in Taiwan, it's actually kind of a big deal. We did a lot of biking, a lot of riding trains with our bikes on it, then more biking. Our area is so big, and I've only seen a small portion of it. I love it.

It's pretty cool, I was talking to Elder Aiono (He's in my zone). I was asking him about his family. We figured our ancestors were probably introduced to the Church at the same time in Samoa. Of course we don't have any solid evidence or anything, but we starting thinking there was a really good chance that they were close friends.

I was never blessed with a singing voice, but I've already performed like 3 times. hahah I'm not saying it sounds good, I'm just wondering why I always get pulled into doing those things haha. It's good memories.
Friday, A young boy in our ward got baptized. It was cool to see. He was actually baptized by a returned missionary who was visiting last week. That was super cool.
We went up to Lu Ye on Saturday. It was like super farm land. I've seen more people driving there tractors on the street here than I have in Lehi. Crazy huh? tons of people out here are farmers. Lu Ye is a special place though. There was a man from Luye who served

The Sabbath was great. I've found a new love for fast Sunday's. I was feeling the spirit super strong yesterday. We have a great ward, with many inspired leaders. Our ward mission leader is such a great man. He's kind of got a rough life, but he has great faith. I look up to him a ton!
