Amy - Tianmu, Taiwan April 18, 2011

Qin ai de jiating,
This week has been great. We continue to see miracles here. Sister Tanner are doing great here in Tianmu. Heavenly Father has continued to bless us. We has quite a few investivators that we had to let go because they were not progressing. But on Sunday we met a amazing women. Her name is Lin Vicky. We were on the phone trying to get a hold of an investigator but she didn't answer. When we turned around she walked up to us. She said she wants to go to church but has a problem with drinking coffee. we taught her about Heavenly Father and prayer. She really opened up. When I invited her to be baptized on May 28 she asked if she could get baptized earlier!!!! Her goal is to be baptized on May 14. She even said that she will try to rearrange her work schedule so that she can come to church. When she prayed at the end of our lesson she thanked Heavenly Father for leading her to us. She said she was, "longing for the truth." Tears rolled down her cheeks as she thanked us and left. She is wonderful!! We are both so excited to meet with her again. Afterward Sister Tanner and I said a huge prayer of thanks and just kept shaking our heads and marveling at the miracles the Lord puts into our lives.
We has Zone Conference this week which was wonderful. We talked a lot about sactification. I realized I have a lot to repent of and change. We talked a lot about how we can personal sanctify ourselves to become more like Christ. I loved this scripture that the Assistants shared in Joshua 3:5. I like how it says that as we are sanctified we will see miracles. I know that that is true since we have seen so many.
So last P-day I wrote really early because we went and hung out with the Neihu Sisters and a recent convert. We went to the beach in Danshui and watched these really cool parasailors. It was really fun. I felt a little bit closer to home as we stood on the beach. We also ate at this really good Texas Steakhouse...yup it was legit. The member we went with bought us these huge steaks along with a bunch of other food. It was soo good!! The steakhouse has a bunch of pictures of John Wayne and other Western movies and a big Texas flag! Our table was in this one part of the resturant that had a door like a jail cell. Afterward we also went to Yangmingshan (a big mountain) and saw the Cala lilly festival. The lillies were gorgeous! It was really foggy though so it was difficult to see. Wang Jiemei bought each of us some lillies which now beautify our apartment. It was a lot of fun.
Today for P-day we woke up early to buy groceries and then went to Taipei. Two church historians came and talked to us. It was a great meeting. They talked a lot about record keeping. It definately reminded me that i need to be better about keeping a record. It was also opened up to question and anwer time. It was so much fun to learn from them. Afterward, the Neihu, Shilin, and us Tianmu Sisters ate at an all you can eat hot pot place. Oh man! It was sooo good. for about 10 American bucks we ate tons of hot pot of our choice and ice cream and all sorts of other goodies. It was delicous. We also are going to the Shilin night market to buy some skirts. yahoo!!
Well i love you all. I hope that you all have a great week.
Love,
Sister Amy Papritz
