Taiwan post January 27, 2014

This week we had a baptism!!! Yeah, so awesome. She is Lin Jiemei, she is 15 years old and her faith is so strong. So when people think that 15 is too young, it is not true. It is based on faith. If you have faith and a desire to learn more you are ready for baptism at any age. I love seeing her enthusiasm!!! Her friend introduced her to the church, her friend came to the baptism to support her!!! It was awesome!!

This week has been full of miracles. We found an less active, but we didn't know how to contact her, so we called her name out, but there was no response. So we did a couple more times. Still no luck, but we were there long enough that her neighbor came home and let us into the building. So we were able to meet her. We tried visiting again but she didn't answer, and we called her name out and then a family exited the building and asked if we needed to go in. It was a huge miracle that we were able to visit her both times.

We have a really special recent convert, she is deaf, our peika (member) wrote down what we say, and we also get to learn some Chinese sign language.which is pretty cool. This week has been busy finding new investigators and getting to know the members in the ward. Gaoxiong (Kaosiung) is much warmer so it is really nice riding without a coat. But nights are still pretty cold.

A little about my companion. She is from Maryland. Her parents are Taiwanese, she started learning Chinese in college, she has learned most of her Chinese here in Taiwan on her mission. And her Chinese is really good. She has 5 people in her family. Her grandparents are from China. Her name is Sister Tung. And she is so awesome!!!!

Love Sister Basko
