Getting closer, friends and farewells

My good buddy
Great week in Songshan!

Miracle of the week:
A dude named Brother Lin moved from Gaoxiong up to Songshan and he came to our ward yesterday. He's a convert of about 3 years. What was way awesome is he brought his two roommates with him to church. They seem super prepared. Our ward has been picking up the missionary work and it really is one of the greatest joys as a missionary.

Don't have much to say today. Things are just going super good. We're having tons of fun right now in our area!

I had my exit interview with President Jergensen last week. It's been super fun serving with him, and that interview pretty much was the icing on the cake.

It's going to be a busy busy week, but Elder Seamons and I are so ready for it.

I'm so excited for Utah winter. I have to sleep with the A/C pumping and a fan blowing on me. Although it's beginning to cool down a bit, I'm ready for some dry Utah! We've been hearing of another typhoon that's supposed to come in tomorrow. I'm not sure if I've fallen into the Taiwanese brace-yourself-for-the-end-of-the-world mentality, but I think this one actually might hit. Which will be a bummer because we have SO many appointments this week. People love to pull the weather card on us.

Last week was super awesome. Elder Seamons and I have been working our tails off, and feel like we haven't seen much success from it. Last week changed that up for us. Definitely built up our faith in the Lord and His hands. Things all seemed to just fall in place. We found lots of new people to teach and some of our current investigators seem to be taking a turn for the better. It's very exciting. I am however a little sad that I won't be seeing another baptism before I come home. I will be forever grateful for the many opportunities I've been given over the past two years. I love my mission dad.

I'm pumped to come home and see you guys. A little sad and nervous to leave my friends, but still so excited. This is my last Monday to Sunday week, and I'm planning to just kill it.

Have a good one!
