Another good week in TianMu

It was so cold I wore
a sweater!
We woke up to cloudy skies and rain. Still one of the greatest feelings ever. The weather has been cooling down big time over here. It was feeling nice, and then Friday hit and it was actually pretty cold. It's feeling good though, I love the cold weather haha!

Last Monday we went out to a youzi farm and picked some youzi. I'm not sure how to say youzi in English. They're super good though. They're pretty much like giant green oranges. Then we went out to have some fun at the beach. East and North, all I have left is to hit the West and South beaches.

On Tuesday, the entire mission came up to Taipei to listen to Elder Gary E. Stevenson speak to us. I kept forgetting to tell you all that that was happening. Well it happened and it was so great. EXACTLY what I needed. He's such a funny guy, and he's like best friends with President
Hangin' at the beach
Jergensen so they were joking around a ton. On top of that, he inspired all of us missionaries. His talk was great, but then he bore his testimony and the Spirit entered the room SO strong. There are no words to describe it. All I know is that we are lead by living Prophets and Apostles. God is in the details of our lives and it is frequently through his chosen servants.

Elder Jensen and I have been running into a lot of awesome people lately. Strangely, many of them have never heard of missionaries before. Up until this point in my mission I'd say about 98% of the people I've talked to know exactly who we are. Just recently, there have been many people who look at us and say, "WHO are you?" It's music to our ears. Perfect opportunity.

At McDonald's on Thanksgiving
with our buddy Aaron
Thursday night we were fed by some families in the English ward. They had American food like turkey and mashed potatoes and stuffing. We joked that we must have gotten in an accident earlier that day because it felt like we were in the Celestial Kingdom. I had always heard of Christmas miracles, but that was indeed a Thanksgiving miracle.

Our investigators are moving right along. We continue to see miracles right and left with them.

Not much else I can think of right now. Time is going faster than it ever has before. It's super crazy. I can't believe we're coming up on Christmas again. That's going to be fun.

I hope you guys have a blessed week. Try to be like Jesus.
