First off, mom and dad, I'm so jealous you got to go there!!!! How was it to see the places where you got married after 30 years??? You both look so happy :D Mom has a glow about her! That's so cool :D You two are having a party I bet :D
So wow.... I'm blown away at the email you sent dad :D It's just so historic, so memorable, so adorable! I always knew you and mom were the most adorable couple in the world, and not its solidified in stone. You two are so cute it makes me sick sometimes ;) haha. love you too :D
So this week was very good!!!! Not gonna lie, life is doing pretty well here :D we're finding people, and doing the Lords work!!! Move call came, but Elder Barr and I are not moving, so that's fun :D We're really happy to still be together haha, we're going to continue striving for excelence, and being the best missionaries ever, to bring the people of FengJia 逢甲 The truth! Ghee :D
Ya..... other than that, I have to say, This week was super tiring. So the month of November has been declared as POWER MONTH!!!!! Which means that we have some crazy high goals........ Which means that we work even harder! It's been exciting to see How much more we truly can put into this work. This last weeks goal was tract into 7 sit down lessons.... not easy I tell you! So instead of the nice balanced finding that we usually do, We tracted. Half our area. 4 Hours a day. Man that was tiring haha, I don't know how many hundreds of houses we knocked, but it was super worth it, and we met some super cool people! Ghee :D I loved it!!!!!! This next week is to add 50 people with times to meet and learn more about the gospel. So that means all our extra time this week is poured into riding around the streets contacting people. Man it's just so exciting!!!!! Whoot! Get's you're blood pumpin ;D
Ok.... here we go.... the week :D

Elder Barr got a good looking haircut ;) haha, bought some stuff to prepare for english class, and then we went and ate at Chillis :D It was super yummy and a little bit salty. yes. amen.

Sunday: Well we found out move call, and nobody was moving! Ghee :D So here we go, still pushing on! with the weather change, I may be starting to get sick, but that's ok, we had a chance to rest a bit, and then go tracting :D Haha. Then we met with an investigator, and the Member present helped us give her a blessing. Phenominal. He blessed her about her mom, and didn't even know about her moms situation! Wow... talk about the power of the spirit. Amen.
