Typhoon season, service, Pres Jergensen

My crazy Zone
Another crazy week for the books!

I don't even know where to start. At the begining of the week, everyone kept telling us to go home because there was a HUGE typhoon coming. Thanks to a lot of prayers, it went around our area and hardly effected us. We did get tons of rain, just not big typhoon level rain. I was actually kind of sad. I was really excited to be in
my first typhoon.

Heading to Hualien to meeet
Pres. Jergensen
Wednesday we did some fun service for a lady in our ward. She owns a big chunk of land and she always has the missionaries come over and do some service for her. We pulled some weeds for her, but it felt more like we were cutting down a forrest. It was pretty fun. Plus we were doing it in the rain, so that's cool. Earlier that day we also had Zone meeting which was good. Contuining to get the good shepard feel going. We have some super inspired leaders that help us out down here.

Thursday we had the chance to travel up to hualien to meet our new mission president, President Jergensen. What a spiritual giant he is. I'm not really sure why I didn't get any pictures with him. next time. He's super tall, and just the kindest man ever. He also brought his twin 15yr old sons with him. They're pretty funny. I'm super excited to be serving with President Jergensen.

On Saturday we went up to LuYe again. Many great people, many of them struggling with their testimonies. There are too many ways satan uses to shake our testimonies. I hate it. The Solution is sooo simple. Stick to the basics!

The rest of the week was great. Our ward is trying hard to help others come unto Christ. It is super awesome to see missionary work as such a huge focus. The work here in Taiwan is moving forward!

I'm grateful to have the influence of the Atonement in my life. I'm grateful that I have a knowledge of my Redeemer. It's still not perfect, but it gets me through each and every day. I've been developing such a personal relationship with my father in Heaven and it's so amazing. My prayers are becoming more and more specific and they are more and more comforting to me. I pray for you daily.

Love you all and hope you have a blessed week!
