Teaching, and Basketball...

Hello Everyone, 

Well, we just had another awesome week up in Taizhong! I'm sorry to hear that back home you had all that rain during your campouts. Luckily here we haven't had any rain all last week! Eric, I feel your pain though. It is super hot here too! The hottest months in Taiwan are coming up, luckily I'm in Taizhong though and not down further south. It's still really hot though. Luckily the room that we sleep in has an air conditioner, but as soon as you step outside of the room you start to sweat like crazy. I went to wash the dishes for a few minutes and by the time I was finished, sweat was dripping all off my nose. It's lots of fun!

  Other than that our week was great. We've been meeting with a really cool investigator named Eric recently (yeah with a name like that he'd better be cool).  And he is an awesome college student here at Donghai. We've met with him a couple times and he always has the best questions. Here in Taiwan they aren't used to asking a lot of questions just because of how their schooling system works so a lot of times when we teach, they just nod and don't say anything. It's difficult to tell if they understand you or not. But Eric just asks questions the whole time we meet. He also says he loves reading which is what we missionaries love to hear when we ask them to read the Book of Mormon. Unfortunately, school will get out really soon for him and he will be going back up to Taipei with his family for the rest of the summer so we can't keep teaching him. It's all good though. I'm sure the missionaries up there will be able to help him out just as well or better than us.
  We went and played basketball at the college last pday and it was a lot of fun. I'm really grateful for how tall I am because it really came in handy. We played some games with a bunch of the college kids and some of them were actually pretty good. Unfortunately for them, the stereotype is true and they were all a lot shorter than me and Elder Steele who is taller than me. It was a pretty unfair height advantage.
  Also this week I got to go to a training meeting! It's hard to believe that I've almost been serving for a year now! Apparently I'm supposed to be one of the "experienced" missionaries now. I certainly don't feel like one haha. It's a good thing that we are on God's side, otherwise I wouldn't know what to do.
  Some good news! I stole the camera from a sister in my district so I have some pictures to send to y'all! I hope you appreciate them. That's all I've got though. Thanks for all the love and support! I love you all!
