“Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.” (Alma 37:37)

Staying in Gang Shan!!!

Dear Family and Friends, 

With Elder Davis and Great Family
I am a little short on time today because we spent most of the time in downtown GaoXiong getting move call stuff all worked out and people moved around.  Elder Davis found out last night that he was going to be moving... that was really sad for him.  He loved GangShan.. and Gangshan really loved him.  I feel so blessed to have worked along side of him.  It is really hard to fail when you have so many wonderful people by your side doing this amazing work. 

With Elder Davis on PDay
Also... because Elder Davis left.. that also means that I get a new companion.  Today I went to the GaoXiong Station with a ward member to pick him up!  His name is Elder Kunz!!  He has been in Taiwan about 12 weeks. He is awesome!  I met him when I served in TaiZhong for those 3 days before I came here to GangShan.  He is from Utah, and is just a cool guy.  I am excited to serve with him and learn from his example. 

This last week went really well!  We ended up having a lot of investigators at church and are really hopeful for a lot of them.  We had a huge miracle this week.  We were out contacting and all of the sudden one of our investigators came up to us out of no where.  We actually hadn't been able to get a hold of him all week.  He showed up and we were about to go to dinner, so we asked if he could come with us.  He said yes, and at dinner we asked if he had found a chance to read the Book of Mormon yet.. he said yes!  and then he went on to tell us that he was only going to read the intro.,.. but then he started really liking it..  so he read 24 pages.  He then went on to tell us how he feels like it really has a lot of the words of life in it!  That was amazing.  I know that those who read to Book of Mormon sincerely and pray about it always come to find out that it is true.

Teaching My Friend That Has Had a Stroke

This is the work of the Lord.  It is true and it is the most important thing that could be happening right now.  I read Jacob 5 this week and read in verse 21 and 22?  where the servant asks the Lord why he has planted in this spot of ground.. because it was barren and dead.  The Lord responds that He knew it was barren and dead all along... but he hath nourished it ( blessing of the atonement) and he found that it brought forth much good fruit.  It doesn't matter where we are or were we live.  The blessing of the atonement and his love doesn't have limits and is there to bless ALL of God's children's lives.  

I love you all so much!!
