elder Matthew Jones
Taiwan, Taichung mission
Another great week over here in Formosa!! Last Tuesday, we got to go to a really cool museum in our area. It looked like it was a little slice of France right in my mission, so Lij, while you were visiting my mission, I was visiting yours ;) We got to see lots of good friends from the zone and the artwork was spectacular. Reminded me of going to museums in Europe. It was super awesome.
This week, we saw some really cool miracles. Miracle number 1 is we were tracting, and felt like turning down a street. The second door we knocked, we ran into a very golden, very prepared lady. She was so willing to listen to our message and pray with us. She also had a 99 year old grandma with her that was just going off in Taiwanese the whole time haha. I don't think she understood that we couldn't understand her lol. Second miracle was Jason. Jason has been going to church with this member family for months, but he lives in another city so we never thought about teaching him. We were just driving back from church yesterday, and we were like, Jason, do you like church? He said yeah, and then we were like, do you wanna be baptized? We were kinda just spitballing, but he replied very excitedly, yes I really do! We taught him the 1st lesson that night, and he set a goal for 6/17. He doesn't live in our area, but since this family is willing to take him to church every week, we will do what we can for him. He is super cool.
Our other investigators are doing great. We currently have 5 investigators with a goal for June, and I think they could all hit it. I love you all so much!! Have a great week!!
