Helloo family!!! So glad this week was so fun for everyone!

SSOOO, last p-day we went with a cool member to a little island off Gao Xiong (had a real-looking beach!) and then we went to Costcos for dinner!! I almost cried. After 6 months, it was like stepping on U.S. soil again. If you think that's dramatic, you just gotta experience it for yourself. haha

We went into a 7/11 to do some language study and after about 10 minutes 6 individual people were very very interested in us, all at the same time. hahaha. We were like their zoo animals almost. Definitely a bizarre experience.

We're trying to find families!! Which we've been OK-successful at, but sometimes they're a little hard to we're working on that! Just looking for those who are prepared.

We also broke a biking speed record this week. A FULL OUT SPRINT on the highway to get to an appointment on time. Punctuality;) Clocked out at 28 mph (according to Elder Storey's Garmin) and we were going as fast as some of the scooters! Not sure if that's actually fast or not, but that was definitely as fast as we could physically go, so it's worth something.

There seemed to be lots of talks about toilets in church. Maybe it's just my Chinese...haha but yeah that's a little awkward for our investigators. Teaching each other the doctrines of the Kingdom...working on it!

And then there's ANDY! It's a pretty crazy miracle that we found him and we just had a killer lesson with him last night. He committed to baptism! Just gotta work on the dang family protesting issue. But nothing's impossible for the Lord!

We missionaries are just out here bearing testimony of the living Jesus Christ, day in and day out. And, the more I bear my witness of the Savior, the more my testimony grows. I know that He lives. I know that His atoning sacrifice unlocked our salvation, as a part of the Great Plan of Happiness. And I know that He invites all to come unto him and partake of his goodness, no matter our background or where we're at in life. I know it's true and real.

Well! Love you all so so much!! Hope you have a great week!
