It helped that today we were able to go to one of the coolest place in Taiwan for p-day today!! It's called Kending, it's considered the Hawaii of Taiwan and was super beautiful. We had such an awesome time today, I'm excited to send home some pics. I think today was my favorite p-day of all time, it's going to be hard to get one that passes it up. I think I got a little sunburned though haha I've gotten super white!
Oh man, one thing I've got to mention, we had the strangest lessons of all time. We have this one member that always gives us referrals, he's super awesome, but sometimes they are a little weird... We went over with him to his neighbors house to meet with him, and this man was more addicted to cigarettes than anyone I've ever seen! We came over and he started shaking like crazy, pulled one out, then kinda calmed down... Then like 10 minutes later, he went crazy again and had to take another smoke! It was ridiculous and one of the strangest things ever, elder stoddard and I were just absolutely appalled. Hahaha it was hilarious, this dude literallly could not go 15 minutes without smoking, it was so bad! Advice for the week: don't ever smoke, the Taiwanese are all hooked and it's the worst!
Spiritual thought: I read a talk about the atonement this week that brought up a real cool point. Elder Gong gave it, he was talking about how becoming perfect in Christ doesn't mean never making a mistake, how making mistakes is actually how we eventually achieve this perfection. Even the Savior had to learn and grow! Don't focus on previous mistakes, just how we can move on and get a little better every day :)
Love you guys, constantly uplifted by your emails and updates from the real world!!
