Typhoons, Brother Lin and saying goodbye

One of my last p-day trips
Two "typhoons" came last week. The first was actually pretty severe for the south side of the island. The second one was just a fake. We're glad everyone is safe.

Pretty good week. We've been going around knocking on tons of less active members' doors. Some open, some don't. We contact people on the street as we travel from home to home. We've seen some miracles and just have lots of fun being out talking to people.

We got 'd quite a bit last week. With 中秋節 and the ty-fakes we got a lot of excuses thrown at us, but it gave us more time out on the street finding the prepared.

We called Brother Lin on Friday. He told us that he had been trying to get a hold of us all day. He went over to the church called the bishop talked to our door man and just couldn't find us. His house down in Tainan got it's roof ripped off from the typhoon. He told us that he was leaving down there for 3 months to fix everything. So I had to say goodbye to him last week. Super sad to see him go, but
Exploring and having fun
the last thing he said to me was, "Goodbye, sweet brother!" with a huge smile on his face. I'm sure he'll get baptized here soon. He's been one of me favorite people I've worked with my entire mission. He's learning how to be obedient to the Lord, and even though he runs into challenges, he continues to tell us how great God is. I love him tons, he's been a great example to me.

Everything else is going great!

I love my mission in Taiwan!

But I can't wait to see you guys soon!

Love you guys,
Elder Chase Matua
