Week 36 ? Zone Conference

Hey y’all!

We had Zone Conference this week, and it was so great!  President and Sister Day did a really funny skit on how not to act on the mission.  The both dressed up as Elder Ping and Elder Pong.  Sister Day is obnoxious and I love her for it!

The assistants gave us training on having effective role plays in our companionship study.  They called it the “Power Plan”.  They shared a quote from Thomas S. Monson: “May I suggest a formula that will ensure our success? First, search the scriptures with diligence.  Second, plan your life with purpose.  Third, teach the truth with testimony.  Fourth, serve the Lord with love”.  I know that when we are diligent, go forward with purpose, testify, and express the love we have for everyone we teach, we will be successful.  And role plays help!  A veteran baseball player never stops taking batting practice.  Likewise, a missionary should never stop doing role plays!

Speaking of Zone Conference, I absolutely love our zone!  Our Zone includes Taoyuan, Bade, Longtan and Zhongli.  Elder Dorius, Liston, and Matua are in my zone.  They reported the same day as me to the MTC, and we went to the same reassignment in the states…Colorado Springs.  It’s really fun being with them, as well as all the other missionaries!

After Zone Conference, our investigator, LiMingzi had her second baptismal interview with President Day.  Unfortunately, she had tea that day, so she failed her interview again.  But we will continue to pray for her.  She really is amazing, and she wants to be baptized really bad, but gets caught up in the social aspect of drinking tea with her nonmember friends.  She’ll be baptized soon, I know it!

On the other hand, LinZhengxin, our Golden, passed his interview this week and is getting baptized on Saturday!  He is the perfect example of “humbling ourselves and becoming like little children” as said in the scriptures.  He just loves everything about the gospel we throw at him, and he is just so willing to keep all of the commandments!  Our ward is really excited because they haven’t had anyone baptized since February.  I can’t wait to see him covenant with the Lord on Saturday!

The work is hastening in the Taoyuan 2nd Ward!  Miracles are happening all the time!
