Letter # 5

Family, Ni hao.
Things are going good in the east!
I have officialy become pro at riding a bike (Dodging in and out of cars and scooters constantly will do the trick).
So this last week went pretty good. My companion was really sick from something we ate so we went home early one night and he was in the bathroom a good part of the night (Ya, it was not good). But things are much better with him now.
So I heard about the new apostle. Thats awesome! We dont see conference until this next weekend. But every missionary here was like "making bets" and stuff on who it was. Kinda like betting on a sports game or something. Hah! (it's as edgy we can get on mission right?)
The work has picked up since last week. We have a couple new investigators one is an older couple who are really into the standards of our church but still believe all of the buddhist beliefs too. They want us to teach there kids and everything. We are really looking forward to that. The next is this sixteen year old kid who came with us to church for the first time last week and then we taught him for the first time last night. HAh ...we taught him out in front of a seven eleven with scooters flying by and dogs and all that good stuff. But the kid now has a baptism date and is willing to work towards it. (after that it just kinda hit me the situation we taught that kid in. Funny... but it worked so no complaints).
Other than that things are all the same here, still raining and all. I love it though.
Oh ya, I have found an extreme love for peanut butter. Our budget is super tight, so we cant just always have the best tasting things.. Ha so we just get
random fruit and bread. All you have to do is just throw peanut butter on it. Its amazing!
Anyway, love you all keep the emails and letters coming I love hearing form everyone.

Okay so the scripture this week is Alma 14. The whole chapter. Its not the most pleasent chapter but it helps us understand the sacrafice htat was made by so many of the people who believed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and especially the blessings of Sacrafice.
