Update from July 12

Zone meeting
Elder Tan and I are up early trying to get our emails done before we head the temple, so short email today!

I've been pumped up to be in a typhoon 3 TIMES now... and nothing ever happens. Twice in Taidong, and once last week. They're all just hype. They prepared like it's the end of the world, and then it rains a little bit. Oh well, I'm thankful Heavenly Father blesses us with safety.

Last week was probably one of the most memorable weeks of my mission. We worked so hard. And saw a lot of miracles from it.

Monday night we were out finding and we get a text from the recorder (one of the office elders) for a referral. An investigator named Brother Xu just moved into our area. He's way awesome and is on track for baptism at the end of the month.

To be honest, all we really did this past week was find. We had a blast and found a lot of great new people. 

Things have been going really well. 

Sunday we spoke in sacrament meeting about repentance, and then later that night we taught at a family home evening about the atonement and forgiveness. The longer I'm on my mission, the more I grow a deep love for the Atonement and for our Savior. ALWAYS remembering Him has had a huge impact on my life, and I've seen it happen countless times in the lives of others. One of my favorite scriptures: Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." I'm grateful for the power of the Atonement. 

I love you guys!
