Yes...I really am on an island

For those of you who are wondering...yes Taiwan is an island. For
those of you who are wondering where is Taiwan? If you pull out a
microscope you can see it on a globe below Japan! :)...(I learned
today some globes don't even have Taiwan...oh goodness haha) My
companion and I got to bike down to the Beach last P-Day and play
around by the coast! It was a lot of fun!

So questions/comments...then
bad news...then good news..then best news okay? :)

~Where the heck is my Cousin Zach? I haven't heard from him
long have I been out?....8months!? :) haha
~It is hard to play the alphabet game here....
~Elder Wong....our fearless zone leader is leaving us and i'm sad
haha. He really is awesome and I wish I had more time to learn from
him but now he is off to bless the lives of other missionaries :)
~I DID eat at a vegetarian restaurant this week...that was an experience haha.

Bad news:
Our baptism got canceled....what!?

Good News:
~Baptism is still on!! :)

Yeah...well the ward thought that having it
on Friday would no be good because some people might not have gotten a
chance to hear about it..from SUNDAY till they decided
to have it this upcoming Saturday instead. Which I guess is good
because they announced it in church which made Philip feel good :) So
its all good I guess :)

~I may have found a new favorite scripture in Alma! [26:22 Yea, he
that repenteth and exerciseth faith, and bringeth forth good works,
and prayeth continually without ceasing—unto such it is given to know
the mysteries of God; yea, unto such it shall be given to reveal
things which never have been revealed; yea, and it shall be given unto
such to bring thousands of souls to repentance, even as it has been
given unto us to bring these our brethren to repentance.]

Is that not amazing? This is going to lead me into the BEST NEWS
THE SCRIPTURES ARE TRUE! :) I was having a bit of a down moment when I
have across this scripture and I just thought..holy moly...this is
EXACTLY what I need to do because this is EXACTLY what I want to
happen! :) I was just like..." THANK YOU HEAVENLY FATHER!" (That is a
habit I got from my wonderful mom..Thanking God for things that others
would think is just a coincidence or is just a nice random thought :))

There are so many miracles that happen on a mission and throughout
life! The key is realizing how many things really are miracles! :) You
have to be aware that God's hand really is in your life at all times!
I am a little short on time since we had to go help a nice lady (謝姊妹)
Get some stuff for her son today.

I will throw in extra pics to make up for it okay?
I love you all so much! go out this week and find someone..just one
person and do something really nice for them :) Just help them feel
important! :)
