|Goodbye Sister Eyre!!!|
First we will start off with the KILLER pday we went on last week. We got together a bunch of missionaries and went on this hike called elephant mountain:) It was so dang beautiful. The whole hike was literally a gazzillion stairs all the way to the top. but we got to the top and you could see all of taipei. And then Sister Eyre pulled out her scriptures and read to us Alma 26:) So nice:) Afterwards was the best part ever. We all went to TEXAS ROADHOUSE!!! It was SOOOO expensive but JUST like America! The rolls, steak, all of it! So we all just ordered a ton of food and pigged out together and tasted America:) It was super fun to relax and eat. Right when I got in there I thought to myself, "the last time I went Texas Roadhouse was like a week before I went on my mission on a date with Chase Moffet! That was literally AGES ago" So shout out to Chase. Thanks for taking me to Texas Roadhouse.
That night was also amazing. We have a member from America in our ward named Nate. He had called us a few nights before and said he had started dating this girl in Muzha who really wanted to learn more about the Gospel! He invited us over to dinner at his house and got to meet her. Her name is Julia and is absolutely amazing! Which is funny cause Nate is kinda goofy...ahhaha Just kidding. It was a really amazing lesson we got to have with her. She loved hearing that we were all Gods children. We are excited to keep working with her and helping her feel more and more of christs love everyday:) Members are so amazing! You are all so wonderful and brave to talk to your friends about the happiness of the Gospel! People can literally see the happiness in your eyes!
Tuesday we had an awesome Zone Meeting all about setting SMART goals. It was the best. It made me think of Dad and how he always helps me set goals for everything. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-based. We had some awesome trainings from our Sister Training Leaders and the Zone Leaders and are super duper pumped to make smart goals for every aspect of this awesome work!
|Saying goodbye is so hard! Emma will miss Muzha!|
Was the worst day of my life:(
Ok not really, but it was super duper sad.
Sister Eyre and I are all done with training and Wednesday morning we got the news that I would be moving and Sister Eyre would be staying in Muzha with a new companion.
I knew I would probably be leaving muzha but it still was so sad to hear it. MUZHA IS MY HOME!!!! Oh my gosh I love that place and those people so dang much I can't even handle it!!!!!!!!!!!!
My new assignment is to Beitou as the new Sister Training Leader. WHAT?! So now I've got all this other neat stuff to learn! I'm pumped;)
Wednesday we had our last day together and had awesome lessons with our investigators and then had english class that night. After english class tons of our ward members came to say goodbye. Oh man it was awful! I like could not stop crying! I literally have met some of my best friends in the world here! Ji Pei De was crying too so that was the worst. But no worries we are SO going back to visit them all and I will still get to see them at firesides cause my area is still in Taipei. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings ultimate happiness and friendships that will last forever!

I'm so grateful to have been called to serve in Muzha. Now Here I am in Beitou!
Thursday morning I cried the whole MRT ride to Beitou...hahha:) But good news. It's awesome here too:) Me new companion is Sister Kho! She is from Utah but both of her parents are from Hong Kong so everyone thinks she is native:) I love her guts! We have been nonstop busy since I got here. Preparing trainings, having conferences, teaching lessons, you name it!
