Taiwan Post November 24, 2014

So it is the 4th day for training. And we have seen so many miracles. Sister Wawro is my new companion. She is so amazing. While she was waiting for her visa to Taiwan, she was serving in Seattle. So she was there for about 8 weeks. And then she came to Taiwan with a group of 20 other missionaries. So exciting!!! I am so excited to be serving with her and to have this opportunity to learn so much more!!! It has already been amazing. We had two new investigators set up for Saturday. One lady is already a Christian yet because of a leg problem she has not been able to go to church for a while. So we were lucky to get to know her and shared a little bit with her. She is struggling with her faith but since she has a Christian background she understands a lot of what we shared with her. Sister Wawro asked her a really simple question "why do you pray?" that is all she asked and this lady started crying and said it was because she feels peace and comfort from it. Sometimes we forget the gospel is that simple. If we are listening to the Holy Ghost a little kid would be able to understand. But we get so caught up in teaching everything that we know that we forget the very simplest principles. And that simple principle is what the Holy Ghost is able to testify of.

I know that the people that God calls, he qualifies. We have all been called to his work. To go and serve his children. To go testify of him. I know that Christ is our savior and redeemer and as Thanksgiving comes closer the more I think about the things that I am grateful for. 

Love you all

After some difficulties of receiving visas we are finally receiving 21 new missionaries into the Taiwan Taichung mission. We are so excited to receive them in the mission field. We are so excited for them to be able to come to Taiwan. It is a really great place. The people are amazing and open. I will also be training a brand new missionary who is brand new to Taiwan, which is a huge responsibility, and it will be hard but it will also be a lot of fun and I will learn so much from my trainee. I trust our mission president and his decision. He knows how to direct the work here through the guidance from God.

This week we met the cutest grandma ever. She is 70+ and she travels a lot from here and Gaoxiong where her kids are living. We were tracking and found her. It was a miracle and the other huge miracle is that she is also Christian. We talked a lot about families and how Christ has blessed her life. We learned so much from her and we are so excited that we can go back and share more about Christ with her.

Miracles come through our faith.

Miracles happened this week. We did a lot of tracting and knocking on doors. We found a lot of people who are really interested and really want to learn more. We were able to share a little bit with them and set up another time to meet with them. We are excited to go and find those that are ready to hear the gospel. God has prepared so many people we just need to have the faith and God can find them. They are waiting and it is our job to find. As we believe we will see the huge miracles that will come.

We had our English party which was Halloween based. It was a lot of fun. We had a lot of kids come which was good we had games and things for them to do. We had them make pumpkins out of play-dough and they also learned the vocab!

I found out a recent convert from Gangshan is now up here in Taichung and is going to the same church building I am going to!!! So excited to see her. She is so awesome. She is so strong in the gospel because she is continually reading her scriptures and praying. As she does these things she has developed a really strong faith in God.

I Love you all!!! Keep working hard. God is always behind you pushing you do you your best. It is your choice to step forward and do those things he wants you to do

Love Sister Basko

Taiwan post November 3, 2014

November has fallen on the world and we are slowly working our way into the winter. We are working on getting some cool activities together here for our youth of our ward. we are organizing a family home evening group so that our recent converts and our members that are not yet married can get to know each other better and so they can get together and play some games, have a spiritual message or lesson and share and eat snacks together. We are so excited to get something organized. We are hoping that it will be a success and will really motivate our members to invite their friends and family to the activity.

This week we met a really cute mom of 3 kids. We called her up a couple of weeks ago but she didn't have time to meet with us, so we called her again recently and she set up a time to meet. Huge miracle, we got to know her and shared a message about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and about how learning about hem will really bless her family. She was excited to learn more and we are so excited to share more with her.

We saw so many miracles as we went to find new people to share the gospel with. We are very blessed to be serving in this area and have the opportunity to really get to know our members better and find ways that we can serve them.

Love you all, keep working hard. The Lord is on your side!!!
