Oh, It's On!

Xu Yi Xiang's Baptism Day

What a wonderful day here in Puli it is!  Not to hot, and not to cold.  Just 剛剛好! How is everyone?  I hope you all is well and that the cold is treating you all alright. With this wonderful day brings some wonderful news, Xu Yi Xiang, the son of our recent convert Brother Xu got baptized yesterday!  What was even better was that Brother Xu was able to receive the priesthood the same day and baptized his son.  It was such a great experience to experience and it'll be a moment for them both of them to remember!  
We were able to find some new investigators this week to start progressing towards baptism, and one in particular was with a mom and her son, the Gao/Zhuang family.  They are both aborigines (I love aborigines so much) and with that usually brings a Christian background.  It was so great to share about the truths we have in common, and then to add more on to what they already have.  In a sense that is all that missionary work is.  It was awesome to see the desire in the mom as we shared about the Book of Mormon and how it contains the fullness of the everlasting gospel of Christ.  As with all, "he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them."  The process is the same for all, but the results received come in different ways and are given according to our desire.   
I know this is another short letter, sorry!  Although it's short, I hope there is something sweet you can find. 
With Tons of Love,
