yes!!!!!! ok. This week was pretty dang fun. Not a ton of super crazy stuff happened, it was just a really happy week:)
First we will start off with P-day!!!!!!!! Last week we went to Taipei 101!! but not to the top, so we had a nice time checking out the massive mall that's on the first 4 floors. Talk about a posh place! so classy. Afterwards we found some other wandering missionaries and we all jumped on the train to Chiang Kai Shek. I have now been there 3 times.....still fun every time:)
Tuesday night we had another glorious day. We met all sorts of wonderful and crazy people. That night we finished off with scripture class and Ji Pei De had his baptismal interview. I was POOPING my pants! We'd already gone over all the questions with him earlier, but I was still just super nervous. We waited for him, and waited some more, it was long...45 minutes later, he came out. and.....PASSED! I was so stinking pumped. He just laughs at how excited I get about everything. . :)

Thursday was super duper special. WE had the last lesson with Ji Pei De and just talked together about how he feels and jazz. It was amazing. We all testified of the enable and cleansing power of the Atonement and Christ's love for us. We all had a kneeling closing prayer and Pei De prayed for us. It. Was. Amazing. The most powerful prayer I've heard in my whole life! I was crying like a baby... You do stuff like that on your mission...

Saturday night was the BEST. Ji Pei De's baptism!!! And bonus! The Elders had a baptism too!!!! Double Baptism!! Everything was awesome. All of us missionaries did a nice musical number and i played the violin..no big deal..I'm just legendary! jkjkjkjk.
After wards I was asked to introduce Pei De. I just cried and cried......Like a baby.

I am so grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ! This Gospel changes people and can bring us an unimaginable amount of happiness and hope! The line in Les Miserables has been coming into my head all week this week! "To love another person is to see the face of God."
Love is the most powerful thing in the entire world. And we have a loving Heavenly Father who loves us more than we can understand! I'm so stoked for Ji Pei De and all the other people that we will continue to meet! Love you guys so much
