Triple Dipper (email 9/14/15)

Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a good week (despite sickness and stuff). ;) It's always great hearing from you and seeing how you're all doing! :D I finally figured out how to send pictures, so I hope you got those! :)
     I'm glad RSL won and that new player sounds awesome! It's going to be weird, because I'll come home to an entirely new RSL team! :) 
     I'm good, we have our interviews with President and his wife tomorrow which I'm pretty excited for and Pday today! It's the first one in a while! :D We aren't really planning on doing much though, just buying stuff and cleaning and eating and stuff for this week. :) 
     I'm doing well and the responsibility balancing act is usually ok. We have found people to teach, which has been really awesome! :D We actually had a new investigator show up to church yesterday! :D The new ward is really cool! It's a lot bigger than the ward I was just barely in, and they're actually trying to split into 2 wards soon. :) There are about 80 to 100 active members I think, which is pretty awesome! They all seem to be into missionary work too, which is a huge blessing. :) 
    This week was good with a great trip to the temple, ZTM and a baptism! Those were all super fun and awesome! I'm so glad I got to go to the temple. :) I guess there are 3 other missionaries from my MTC district in my current zone so that's pretty cool. :) Also, the baptism went well. :) the guy who helped baptize our investigator had to do it 3 times (hence, triple dipper). ;) it was really cool and I was really excited to help one of our investigators get baptized! :) 
     As for spiritual things, we had an FHE last night on the spirit and how we can learn through the Spirit and stuff. We were told to write down a question we had in our lives. Then we read Alma 36. It was really cool because I felt the Spirit really strongly and I felt like my question was answered. :) It's pretty cool how God works. :) Anyway, I think that's about all for now. I love you all and pray for you all the time! :) Love you!!

Cool car we saw the other day and a cool iguana (I'm pretty sure it's an iguana) :) They're not too expensive here! :) 
One of our investigators is an animator and works with a 3D printer and showed it to us! It was super cool!! :D Also, the pictures were his own he had done with his 3D printer! 
The view from our apartment. :)
In Taiwan, we have to get buckets of water to fill up the fonts for baptisms here. Just kidding, the cold water wasn't working so we had to take a bunch of cold water from the sinks and take it to the baptismal font. :)
