It was stake conference this week because PingDong just got made into a stake! :D Super awesome, and hopefully it will bring us closer to getting another temple in Taiwan! We had the night session of stake conference on Saturday night and since we live super far away, we had to take a bus at 3 to make it in time for the 7 pm meeting. :o The cool thing was we got there about an hour early, and got to eat dinner with our mission president! :D He's so awesome. :) Then because we live really far away, we got to spend the night with the zone leaders because they live in the area. :) It was pretty sweet and my first missionary sleep over I've had!
On Sunday we came back with some members of our branch, proselyted and now I'm here. :)
It was a good stake conference. :) I've been to stake conference in every area I've served in so far, including, somehow, California. :) Yeah, the one week I was in California it was stake conference. :) It's kind of cool, honestly and really fun to see all the members and missionaries. :)
Also, our investigator passed his baptismal interview, so he should be set for baptism around 3/11 or 3/12! :D We are super excited for him!! :D
I might be on the mission blog a little less because I'm so far away from everyone. I might be on it next week for zone conference, though. :)
I think it's really cool how (especially on a mission) that we have experiences that help us and our testimonies and shape us into better people. :) I am grateful that I can be here and I hope that I'll be able to remember these experiences (the good ones, at least) for the rest of my life. :) I like the talk--I can't remember who says it or when--but they say "if we only have one convert on our mission, hopefully it's yourself" or something like that. No matter how I do in helping others, I really hope that I can become more converted to the Lord over these two years and I hope that I can serve Him well. :)
Love you guys and hope you had a good week this week. :)
