We had so many miracles this week! First miracle: we were able to hit ALL of our Key Indicator goals! We had 4 investigators at sacrament, 8 peikes (陪課) (lessons to investigators taught with a member present), 5 new investigators through missionary finding efforts, and 3 New investigators through a member referral, it was just fantastic! President Jergensen has been making a point about finding through members. It’s not an easy key indicator to hit, but Sister Davis and I have been blessed every week and we have been able to find them! It’s amazing how the ward members are to excited about missionary work, THEY even read Preach My Gospel! I seriously LOVE the Tucheng 土城 ward. They really understand the point of us missionaries. We are actually here to help THEM in their missionary efforts. Not the other way around. And they understand that! If only EVERY member of EVERY ward understood that, then the amount of baptisms would skyrocket!
This new investigator family we are teaching…I LOVE THEM. They were actually a member referral. The Dad, Brother Wu, is a Less Active of about 10 years or so, and he wants his kids to learn about the gospel. We met with them Saturday. He is a wife and 3 boys, the oldest of which has down syndrome AND IS SO CUTE. When we extended the invitation to baptism, the 2nd son, David immediately said “YES”, then the mom accepted, then the youngest, Ben accepted as well. Brother Wu asked if his oldest son could get baptized, but then we explained kids with special circumstances don’t have to be baptized, just like how little kids under 8 don’t need to. Then Sister Wu said: “See? I’ve always known he was an angel!” It was awesome! We are going to their house for dinner next Sunday!
We are keeping busy, so busy to the point we have to go on splits with the members in order to get all of our lessons in. I am so afraid of being lazy my last transfer, so I went ahead and made sure we are BUSY BUSY BUSY. And we are! And life is soooo good!!
All of the maps on the subways in Taiwan have our church on it if there is one close to the station! I love it!

A member from the Wanda (萬大) Ward came to visit me Wednesday! Do y’all remember Jensen? HE IS THE BEST.
