Wasabi is the Windex of Taiwan


Yes that was a My Big Fat Greek Wedding joke! :) But really...Wassabi is magical. My companion and I went down to a fresh fish market this week, which if you ever ever gone to a REAL fresh fish is creepy...But we got some Sashime(Spelling?) which is just fresh un-cooked slabs of fish that you eat with Wassabi and Soy sauce. Well....when there is about 5 pounds of wassabi in front of two Elders....sometimes a "who is manlier competition starts"....the funny things is that NEITHER of us look very manly as we are eating this fish and Crying our eyes out! haha. The Wassabi is CRAZY! Oh man...I think I actually fried brain cells that day! Not to mention both of our stomachs were in pain the rest of the evening....but It is the experience that counts :)

I started a really cool experiment that I hope everyone can try at one point or another! So everyone should have copies of the Preach My Gospel right?? (GENERAL CONFERNCE INVITE!) Well what I am doing is I am going to take to the missionary lessons!!! I am going through and reading the Preach my gospel lessons in Chapter 3. I am going to meet with myself about 2 times a week. Share with myself the lessons, share scriptures, give myself commitments and invites and give examples to help myself understand better (All nicely provided by the Preach My Gospel). I am then in between visits with myself actually do the commitments, things like Read the Book of Mormon Into and start daily scripture study and pray to find out if this is all true. I bought a new Book Of Mormon to do this with so I can make new marks and stuff. I also am using a study journal to record the questions I have in the lessons and in my personal reading. As well as the answers that I get from the lessons, reading, prayer, and personal revelation! So far I just finished the first lesson and will be meeting with myself again tomorrow! It is really fun and aweomse! You should all try it to! (If you are not a baptized member or for some reason can't get your hands on a Preach My Gospel/have lost interest in church, then just ask the missionaries to come over and help you do this experiment! I am sure they would LOVE to help out :)) I have already learned and grown so much from it!


One of our most AMAZING investigators is going to America for a few months with a work if you see any people that are Chinese and don't speak ANY might be him :) so say hello :) haha. We are sad that WE probably wont see him again, but we know that he will get baptized when he returns and we are excited for that!

We are meeting with another amazing Woman named Linda! She is super awesome and can feel the spirit very well! In our lesson she told us, "There is just a big difference between you two and your church and where I went is hard to describe but I can feel it. I like it here more." Can you say BLESSINGS! She is an honest seeker of truth and look, blessings come. Blessings that you can really FEEL! So take that Satan! And yes, that means that all of you that haven't tried it yet or have fallen away...just plllllleeeeaaaasssseeee come back and again FEEL the amazing blessings that God has in store for you! I know your life right now might be pretty good. However, I promise you that it is no where even close to what it COULD be with the blessings that the true restored gospel brings into your lives!

Thank you everyone for your letters and your support on Facebook! I want you to all know that every letter and like and all that mean so much to me!! Thank you all so so much for your love!

So I don't know if I have mentioned this in any other emails, but my Good friend mister Ben-ya-min Johnson out in the land of IDALY! (Chinese pronunciation) presented a wonderful idea that I am now taking part in called the 6 months to sexy. It is this, within the last six months work out as HARD AS YOU CAN and just get big! For those of you that know me know that my two brothers, Dane and Chase are MUCH bigger than I am. So if you have any ideas for gettin big fast. Please let me know so that I can still be king of the hill when we all return :) haha.

I love you all so much!

Have an amazing week and like always,
