“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)

Goodbye GangShan

Dear Family and Friends, 

Good-bye GangShan
Well this week was very special and very hard as well.  It was hard because I was called to leave GangShan.  I have really grown to love that place.  I have spent a half a year there... and it has been
such a great blessing.  It was special because of the true love I felt for the people here.  I have come to love these people so much.  They will forever be in my heart.  At this time of thanks giving I am grateful for the gospel which allows us through the Savior and his love to take these relationships and make them eternal. I am so grateful for that.  I can't imagine leaving these people without that knowledge.  This week was very hard to leave all of the people but especially the "G..." Family.  They are like my family in Taiwan.  I love them so much.  I am so grateful that they have decided to follow Jesus Christ's example and be baptized.  I hope that I can make it to their baptism... but if not I understand.  I am just grateful that they have made this choice and know that Heavenly Father will bless them so much.  

I have been called to serve in TaiBao! There are 30 members. It is in the JiaYi district!!!  I am really excited about the opportunities that lay in store. My new companion is Elder Larsen!  He is from Utah and he is a stud.  I am really looking forward to serving with him.  It will be a great adventure.  I am really grateful for this opportunity the Lord has given my to come to serve in JiaYi. I hope that I can work hard to help those who dwell in TaiBao.   

This week as I left GangShan my heart was full of love for the eternal friendships that were made there.  I will miss all of those people.  I believe I will see them again someday.  I pray that I will.  I love this gospel and know that it is true.  

As part of this thanksgiving I also want all of you to know that I am grateful for you.  You are my family and friends.  I am so grateful that you are in my life.   

This week Elder Stevenson is visiting our mission!!!  WE ARE SO EXCITED!!! The whole mission is going to TaiZhong to hear him speak!  Afterward I believe he is coming to JiaYi for a District Conference that we will be attending!
