MERRY CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR!
It was truly great to be able to skype with you! It was fun to see everyone and know you are all doing well!
This was a busy week out here in Taiwan. It was a week of road trips, fixing problems with landlords, and taking care of all the other little things. We went everywhere from Taibei to Gaoxiong, basically covering the entire island of Taiwan!
Lately we have been redeveloping the English Program for Taiwan. It has been a long, drawn-out task. Our deadlines are coming up and feel overwhelming. I have never written a text book before, let alone two. I am not the expert on classroom curriculum or training teachers. However, that is what the task requires. This week I was reminded of the Law of Prayer. That our prayers truly do enter into the “ears of the lord of Sabaoth”, yet they are answered in his time and his way. I was praying for help to get these English materials prepared for the deadlines. I was feeling pushed to my max when President Bishop walked into the office and said, “Newsflash, Elder Wang has seriously sprained his foot and will be off it for 6 weeks. He is coming to the office to be in a threesome with you.” Last night we wrapped up our business in Gaoxiong and picked him up late last night in Jiayi. I didn’t know how that help was going to come, but now I have a little team to help me get all the tasks done! As Elder Wang was in the car driving up with us to Taizhong, he expressed disappointment and how he didn’t know how that could happen to him. I know exactly why it happened!
My dear family, I know prayer is a communication with the divine. It is a process prescribed by a loving Heavenly Father to communicate with Him. I testify that man can talk with God today! I know it, for I have done it through the power of the Holy Ghost!
I love you all! I hope you had the most wonderful Christmas and are geared up for a wonderful New Year!
