Late post - June 26 recap

Sis Willes reminded me so much of
my mom
We had Zone conference on Wednesday, and it was one of my favorites. We were trained on Pride, Self-mastery, and some teaching tools to help us improve teaching repentance and baptizing converts. I learned a bunch, but one of my favorite parts was they showed us President Uchtdorf's talk from the priesthood session of the October 2010 gen. conference. "Pride and the Priesthood".

"Humility directs our attention and love toward others and to Heavenly Father’s purposes. Pride does the opposite. Pride draws its energy and strength from the deep wells of selfishness. The moment we stop obsessing with ourselves and lose ourselves in service, our pride diminishes and begins to die."

Lunch with the Willes'
So I learned a lot about humility and charity and all that good stuff. It's a way good talk and I invite you guys to read it.

Elder Tan and I had a good week. Time continues to fly.

Monday we were treated to lunch by the Willes Family. What great people they are. We were way excited to see Elder Willes. His younger brother actually goes into the MTC the same time Mica does so that's pretty cool.

 Monday night we met with one of our new investigators. The church is closed on Monday nights, so we took her up on the roof to teach her. At first she said, 'This is a little weird." But at the end of the lesson she said that she really liked being on the roof closer to God and "Feeling it."
A famous person we met on the
street: Zhao Chuan

Tuesday was district meeting up in Neihu again. We had some pretty huge thunder storms this week. and when it wasn't raining, it was boiling hot.

Wednesday we had Zone Conference and English class. These are the kind of days when you wake up at 6:00 am and fall asleep 10 minutes later at 10:30 pm. I'm sure that makes sense.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were just filled with street contacting. All day, Everyday. That gets pretty exhausting, but plenty of opportunities to find that golden investigator.

Sunday we saw some pretty cool miracles. We were out for 4 hours trying to find 3 more new investigators to hit our goal. The last 30 minutes (it always seems to be the last 30 minutes) Heavenly Father put some people with potential in our path. It's so crazy how simple and very important our message is. It's hard to see many walk away from it, Often, with out giving it a chance. But it is so sweet to see others experiment on the word, and find happiness.

That just about sums it up. I love you all!

Beware of Pride!
