Transfers // Miracles
This week was ridiculous.
Monday through Thursday were filled with meal appointments because I was moving.
Seriously, the Chao Zhou members are the best.
Our investigators couldn't meet with us this week :(
So it was eating/contacting/tracting.
All day every day.
It was great :)
Woke up at 4 friday morning to go to the train station.
it was really hard-
Saying goodbye to Sister Defranchi was not easy.
I guess leaving your trainer is never easy for any missionary.
Yes, we cried.
(I bet some of you were waiting for that line)
I got kicked out of my apartment on Friday but I couldn't move into my new area until Monday.
Sooo they put me with two other sisters in a city called Da Liao.
Sister Murdock and Sister Chang.
They made the transition of leaving Sister Defranchi a lot easier.
Serving with them has been an incredible experience.
And they are incredible people.
When I first arrived, we didn't have a third bike.
Sooo I sat on the back of Sister Chang's bike.
We zip tied my luggage to Sister Murdock's bike.
And biked to the other side of town.
Did it look a little strange?
But in the words of Sister Murdock:
"We're sister missionaries- more prepared than boy scouts."
Saturday night I figured out where I will be serving for at least the next 6 weeks.
(Pretty much Gaoxiong City)
I am so pumped! I will be heading there in an hour or so :)
My new companion's name is Sister Olsen.
Here's the thing:
She just got out of training.
I just got out of training.
As in we have both only been in Taiwan for 12 weeks.
We are still babies in the mission.
And since we both can't read characters we will be eating some strange things...
Usually missionaries who are younger in the mission always stay with someone who's been in the mission a lot longer for some time.
But, President put us together- so that's who the Lord wants me to be with right now.
It's going to be a ride.
Hard, but definitely fun.
Miracle of the week:
While I was in Da Liao, Sister Murdock, Sister Chang and I taught a family.
The Huang Family.
He happened to have his cousin and her family over too.
Her name is Melody.
The Huang family wasn't very interested in the gospel- but Melody was.
She asked a ton of questions- and said she would love to learn more because it looks like it has really blessed our lives.
I was sad that I only had one time to meet her.
BUT- at the end of the lesson, Sister Murdock asked her where she lived.
She said " Not here, near Gaoxiong."
"Ok well we can refer you to the missionaries over there then"
I was like "Where exactly?"
The Lord provides.
We are set up to meet with her next week- and I am so happy.
She seems like a golden investigator.
It's been a little hectic moving from place to place- still moving today -.-
But I know Heavenly Father continues to bless us every day no matter where we are.
I am so grateful that I get to spend every day serving Him.
I'll end this week's email with a quote:
"When you are serving God, you have no need to fear."
I love you all.
Sister Michelle Liu.
