Taiwan, Taichung mission: Week 54

Dear family and friends, 

       The weather is starting to cool down a little. It seems like next week will have typhoon here.  

        It has been a great week with good success that the Lord gave us. We are grateful for all the miracles we saw this week. One of them being: We were going to find this potential that both of us are pretty sure she wasn't interested, yet we determine to give it another try. After we prayed and about to walk to her house, we saw this young girl just turned into the alley we were in. From her expression, I felt like she already knows missionary so we went up to talk to her. Turn out she thought we are here to find her because she was taking missionary lesson 2 months ago in TaiDong with the sisters there and that morning she arrive in Tainan back to school again. We also find out she was in our referral system but we couldn't get hold of her for couple time so we forget about her. It was totally God's plan that we were right at where we suppose to be and met her. She is now our investigator with a baptismal goal in October! I know that as we continue to work hard (trying to find that potential again) and use our faith, the Lord truly bless us with in unexpected way.

     Another miracle is Kiki, our beloved investigator finally get permission from her  dad to come to church for 3 hours. She normally only attend 1 hour for the sacrament meeting but this week she came for all 3 hours and the coolest thing is she felt so strongly with the Spirit when we sang the sacrament hymn that she got teary. We told her that's because she felt the Spirit testified to her it is true. 

      Next Thursday we have zone conference and I've been asked to give my reflection of my mision during that time. A little nerveous but know it will be a good time to share what've learnt and get out of this mission. I will share my reflection with you guys next week =)  

Spiritual share: Throughout my whole mission, I not only learned how to embrace awkwardness and make it better, I am also constantly searching ways to balance life. This morning, I have read a talk by a leader in church and I really like what I get out of it. When I go home, I need to make sure I constantly have time for these 4 things to keep my day to day in balance : 1) scripture study 2) exercise 3) bonding time with family and friends 4) missionary work. This is my goal in life now!!!

Love you all, 
Sister Ting

Dinner with our member and her family for Mooncake festival celebration. She desires of her family to learn about the gospel too. 

 This wall is on an alley next to a member house's house. So cool!!!

 One day riding pass this view and realised it's the bridge that near our apartment so quickly stop and take a snap of this beautiful Tainan at night! Not very often get to do this.


​2 of my friends from QiShan came visited me last Sunday. What a great surprised!
