小琉球>台灣大陸 (Little LiuQiu Island, Even Cooler than Mainland Taiwan)

032717 Flower Vase Rock

Hello all! Another great week out here! Last Monday we made it out to 小琉球 (Little LiuQiu) that tiny little coral island off the coast of Taiwan, and it was pretty sick, probably the best pday of my mission thus far! We took a ferry ride for about 30 minutes to get to the island. Then we went around the entire island and stopped at all of the tourist spots, and it was a blast!  Below you’ll see pictures of us on the ferry ride, my tag at one of the shell sand beaches, Elder Choi and I at a little fishing marina, and the delicious fresh strawberry shaved ice/ice cream we ate.  It was super weird because we didn’t feel like we were even in Taiwan, which technically we were but weren’t!

 

The member who took us there was talking about taking us to China for pday next week, and we were like NOOOO we cannot do that! If didn’t you know, missionaries live by hundreds of meticulous rules, and one of the biggest ones is that you cannot leave your mission boundaries, so China would be a big 不行 (No No!) haha!

Anyways this week was great! We really worked super hard on progressing a couple of investigators towards baptism next week, and the majority of our time was spent helping them out! One of them is a golden member referral, and the other is a super weird dude who has a real desire to follow Jesus Christ and change his life, so it’s been fun!

I don’t really have much else to talk about, Elder Choi ran out of money, so we have been eating ramen noodles and eggs for just about every meal this past week. New money comes in on Friday, so hopefully we will be able to get back into eating real food again!

I love this work, and I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. Being a missionary at times is extremely hard, but at other times extremely rewarding. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve these people and to serve the Lord! Have a great one! I love you all!

Love,

Elder Stroud
