The last couple of days were dandy.

Wednesday we went to the temple and it was really great! After we went up to President's house and ate waffles with homemade caramel sauce on them! They were delicious! Then we went on a nice hike! We rode through Tianmu and that was fun, brought back lots of great memories!

Then the highlights of the last couple days were that we got to see Tim two more times and he has a steadily growing testimony! He just keeps asking more and more questions and its so cool to see how big of a desire he has to learn! He is doing really really well and I think he will get baptized for sure! The only problem he has right now is that he doesn't want to come to church because he's afraid it will cause problems within his family. We are praying that he will be able to talk with them and get that sorted out! 

I absolutely love all of the people here and enjoy every chance we get to interact with and teach them. It is so wonderful to start to see them change and progress and find new answers and happiness.

Also I don't remember if I've talked about Adam before. He served in Taizhong a few years ago and now he's back here selling corndogs for a little while. Anyway we've had a few chances to talk with him and he's a super smart guy really inspiring! 

Hmm.. the other things that happened were all fairly normal! We are just really excited about our investigators! Most of them weren't able to make it to church though so that will be our focus this week for sure! 

Also tomorrow we are going to Yilan for an exchange! I'm excited to go down there. I've heard it is a really great place! 

Yesterday in Gospel Principles Elder Seamons and I taught and we were talking about family responsibilities! It was really cool! Adam made a comment that I really liked. He said that the most important thing if you want to get buff is having a good diet, but usually that is overlooked because it seems obvious that you should just focus on working out if you want to get big. Then he related this to how when we learn the gospel sometimes the most important part, applying it in our homes, is overlooked. I don't remember the exact analogy he used. But what I learned and really liked was that we can do lots of stuff but most important is that we really take the opportunity we have as families to learn and apply all of the teachings that the gospel provides us! The home is the perfect place to learn all of the wonderful things that Heavenly Father would have us learn to become the people he wants us to become! 

Have a wonderful week! I love you all! 

Love Elder Jensen!
