Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

Dear Family & Friends,

Merry Christmas and a 🎉HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!🎉

WOW! What a week full of miracles and tender mercies!  
This whole week was so amazing! If first started at our Mission Christmas Party! We all went up to Taipei to met up together at the American Club Hotel to celebrate Christmas together! It was next to the Grand Hotel where there Prophet David O McKay dedicated the island of Taiwan to missionary work. We were able to go there and visit as a mission. What a spiritual and emotional visit we had. So grateful that missionaries are able to be here at this time to share the restored gospel of Jesus Christ! What a spiritual christmas party we had too. 

Then on Christmas Eve Night we has our planning session and we then we had a couple lessons! That night we had a lesson with an investigator named Sister Guo at a Starbucks across the street from the MuZha University. She is the cutest 20 year old ever! She goes to college right now and is having a great time learning about the gospel. She is so sweet and is just full of love! She is always smiling! She says that her life is going great right now and that she is so grateful for all the things God has given her. As we taught her the Spirit was strong and I knew in that moment I wouldn't rather be anywhere else on Christmas Eve. AT the end of our lesson we invited her to baptism and testified of our Savior. She accepted and wants to be baptized!!

It really was a WHITE CHRISTMAS! The lovely Sister Lan was baptized this pasted week!! She is so great and wonderful! She was so happy to be baptized! She said she felt at peace and she really knew that these things are true. What a beautiful daughter of God she is and I'm so happy and blessed to have met her! What a blessing it is. She met with the missionaries and they started teaching her and then a few weeks later she was baptized! God is truly mindful of everyone and desires everyone to be happy!

This Christmas I am deeply grateful for the opportunity I have to teach the restored gospel and testify of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. What a blessing and a true testament of our living Savior!! I hope you all remember Christ this new year and seek to have Him more in your life!! May God be with you until we met again! I love you all and wish you good luck this new year!

Dear Family & Friends!

CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!! I love the Christmas season and what it has to offer.What an incredible time! Surprisingly they celebrate Christmas in Taiwan more or less. They just like the hanging decorations but don't really do anything fancy. In the church here in Taiwan on the other hand, they are prepping for their Christmas party this coming Saturday! These parties and activities mean everything to them so they are doing a lot!!

This pasted week we were able to throw our english class christmas party! It was so much fun! We had a couple games and activities and then us, missionaries, put on a Nativity performance! It was so much fun and I enjoyed the decorations we put up in our chapel!

This week we also went on a lot of bike rides to different places in our area! It was so much fun! It wasn't when it started to rain though. We were biking up this hill and saw this big christmas tree that was made out of CD's. Then we were stopped by this old man that thought we were lost but in fact we've traveled that way before. He stopped us and wanted to give us fruit. We accepted and walked across the street. It was the sweetest old man ever! We will never forget his kindness and love! After we talked with him and sharing the gospel I was reminded what the true meaning of Christmas was! It was just that and I'm so thrilled that I have this time to share about Christ our Savior!!

Then we went to visit a member at the hospital. It was a Christian hospital decorated with all things christmas! It was so cute and we were glad we were able to sing to her and her kids! It was fun and it felt like christmas even more!

Not to much happened this week but I'm happy to report that the the Lord's work is still moving on and I'm still trying to be an instrument in his hands. I'm grateful this holiday season to be representing Christ. I know that He lives and loves us!! Please remember him and all that He has done!!!
