Brother Tsai's baptism

What a wonderful week. Mostly because Yang LiAn got confirmed and Tsai YongSheng was baptized and confirmed. Also Chen ZiRan passed his baptismal interview last week and will be baptized this Saturday. YAY!!! BAPTISM!!!
Last week I got pretty sick. My companion really carried us. He's a great missionary.
It's pretty crazy to think that this is the last week of the transfer. Time flies. I don't remember much of last week. I had an intense headache all week long. I know that we still worked hard.
Obviously the big highlight was brother Tsai's baptism. He finally made it. He was so happy. He said he was the happiest he's ever been. He had the biggest smile on his face and gave me a big hug in the font. Haha. He shared some sweet testimony after he was baptized. It was such a long effort helping him make it, but in the end it was all worth it. After inviting him to nag his boss so many times, or quit his work, his boss had finally given in, with a huge blessing from Heavenly Father. His work is one where it's not realistic to be able to take every Sunday off, but he got it!!! Miracles really do happen. We met with him Monday after his confirmation and he rode up on his bike and got off with a huge smile on his face, happy as can be, and said "Congratulations to me." I went in to my boss this morning and set up resting on the Sabbath for the whole year. He said "Heavenly Father really hears our prayers, He really hears our prayers!!"
I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary and experience the joy of the gospel. I've learned so much about the happiness that true gospel living brings. It's been amazing to see the gospel and the gift of the holy ghost change others lives. Their countenance really does change when they receive that gift, confirming the truth of this restored gospel. True priesthood power and authority is on the earth again to bless our lives. I love being a part of bringing these truths to my brothers and sisters in Taiwan.
I love the gospel!! I love the church! I love my Savior!
I love being a missionary.
