September 14 2014

This week was pretty interesting, we had lots of miracles happen and we are hopefully going to have a good week! The last couple of weeks have been pretty slow and a lot of people have been not showing up for their scheduled lessons. So we have spent a lot of time out on the roads trying to find people to teach! One day we were heading to the church and ended taking a way that we had never taken before and we found this guy that is so prepared!!! Hopefully we can meet with him this week! We gave him the first lesson pamphlet and before we had left he was reading through it! He has read the bible and feels like there is more that he needs to learn.... WELL we can help!!!  
So every morning we wake up and go right out the door to work out. We go to a school that has a full track right by our house and there are always old people there doing their stretching. But one day this week we were running and every two laps we would stop and do pushups and sit ups and one of the crazy ladies came over and started to talk to us in Taiwanese and we told her we don’t speak Taiwanese but we speak mandarin.... haha she didn’t care she kept yelling at us in this crazy language and then all of a sudden this 60 or 70 year old lady gets down and starts doing pushups with us!!!! haha what the heck  she was crazy so I finished my pushups and stuff and got up and started running well I guess once I left she was looking at my companions form and she touched his butt..... haha The old people are so crazy here!!!

Last Monday our awesome RC took us to a water fall.  It was pretty awesome! I will send pictures of that.  Then we went to visit another one of our RC's and he gave us fresh sugar cane!! It was pretty good but really weird to eat!

This week we had some pretty cool experiences! Last night my companion felt like we needed to go tracting on a road that he saw earlier that week, we both were kind of hesitant because it isn’t the most effective method out here but we decided to do it anyway and while tracting we didn't have much success but decided to go across the street and call the APR, when we were leaving a mom and son self-contacted us and they were awesome!! We got there number and they are super excited to meet! The blessings of listening to the spirit!

This week we have two baptisms!!! We are baptizing sister lee and her daughter!  It should be an awesome day, I have been working with them from the very start and at first they were really iffy it is amazing to see how the gospel can change someone and bless their lives!!

I love you all and hope you have a great week!! 

Love Elder Roberts
