Zone Meeting and seeing dear friends

My friends Leo and Sis Lin
from Taidong
We had a pretty good week.

Monday had a super fun zone party at a members home. Tuesday we watched the "Teach Repentance and Baptize Converts" broadcast. I learned a lot, but one of the greatest things that stuck to me was the spirit's role in conversion. I thought I already understood what that meant. Before I thought of it as, the spirit is our greatest tool in teaching. No, WE are the SPIRIT's greatest tool in converting souls. SO cool! Wednesday we had a rather successful English party. It worked out a lot better than we thought it would. Elder Qiu and I even found an awesome family that said they were really moved by our spiritual share. This week we're planning on meeting with them and helping them start on the path to conversion!

We had zone conference in
the mountains
Thursday and Friday were pretty solid, but the coolest thing happened on Saturday. We took Amber and Brother Lin to do a temple tour which went pretty good. Before the tour, I saw two of my good friends from Taidong.  After the tour, we were standing in the court yard when I heard someone say, "好巧" (Which basically means, WOW, we didn't set an appointment to see each other, but we're here at the same time, amazing! There may actually be an English word for that, I just can't think of it hahah). It was sister liang from Longtan! She had just finished doing baptisms for the dead. She started to shard with me how well things are going for her, and how excited she is to go through the temple to do her endowments in march. She's almost been a member for a year! It was SO cool to see how much she's changed and how she's growing in the Gospel. Another one of my buddies from longtan just got his mission call and he's going to New Zealand. After I finished talking to them, I heard Elder Taulepa call my name. He was pointing at some guy. I walked towards them and realized it was Harry from Taidong! Another one of my great
friends. It was just a whole day of reunions. To top it all of, we set up for 30,000 homeless people to eat food.

Yeah, good week. Full of the spirit. Elder Qiu and I are really looking forward to this week. We are going to see lots of miracles. Serving the Lord has brought me some of the greatest joys I've ever felt. Having front row seats to watching people change their hearts and become great is such an honor and blessing.

I hope you all have a blessed week. Get caught doing something good, preferably the work of the Lord, because we all know how important that is! Surround yourself with greatness!

Love you all
Elder Chase Matua
