Saving Daylight - March 11, 2013


"Anything you do, do it well. The last thing you want is to
be sorry for what you didn't do." - Chinese Proverb

Elder Gummow's email this week was pretty short today for two reasons.  One, because we almost forgot to send him the email we wrote that morning and didn't realize it until his time was almost up and two, because he has a busy day ahead!  We are so happy the work is keeping him busy - we just wish he could type faster so he could include more details!

Sorry today has to be faster than usual, at 11:30 we're going to travel around GaoXiong with that investigator, M....., that I told you guys about before.  He's super super cool and has made a lot of progress these past weeks. He came to church last Sunday for the first time even though he's super busy.  Also even better news is that I'M NOT MOVING!!  I have at least three more weeks left here since this next move call is shorter.  It's so great too! Zuoying has been growing so much lately and there's so mant good things going on here.  Plus I'll get the opportunity to see the L... Family baptized this month!!  The even greater things is the oldest less-active son is turning 16 this next month so he can baptize his brothers if the ward is okay with it!!  Zuoying is the best place ever!

So this week we met with the guy named --- or C....DiXiong, the guy that we met twice on the street and he's is amazing! a miracle!  When we met with him he told us he has a cousin that's a member in Taipei who's been really good at sharing the gospel with him, so he already knows quite a bit and has some good interest.  Plus the paper we gave him says "Families are Eternal" on the front which really hit him because he's a sailor that leaves 8 months to go sailing and the comes back for only 2 so he doesn't get to be with his family that much, but he loves them a ton.  He super cool and willing to accept the gospel.  The only problem though is he has to leave this next week to sail again so we won't see him for eight months.

SOrry that's it.  I have to go... love you guys tell your more next week!! LOVE YOU
