Last Monday we Skyped a LDS member in Taiwan. They skyped from their computer. We taught Meng Jie Mei (Sister) she was with one of her kids. When we first started teaching her, she spoke really fast and she realized that we couldn't understand her at that speed and she slowed down for us. I was stunned by how fast she spoke, I only understood a few words but not enough to get a full picture. She served a mission at Salt Lake City Temple Square. So she knew how it felt to teach someone in a foreign language. We taught her about how to receive revelation through reading the Book of Mormon. It went really well. We covered ways we can seek answers through the Book of Mormon. Our lesson went pretty well. We have Skype lessons every Monday so we have one later tonight. We are planning to teach our LDS member about finding comfort though the scriptures.
Last Wednesday, I had my first dream I remembered in zhongwen/Chinese. Well it wasn't really a full dream in zhongwen. I just remember that our district was in class and one of the Elders said you need to pei him. Pei means accompany. So I dreamt one word in zhongwen! It still counts as dreaming in zhongwen ahaha.
You always know when BYU football is playing. You can hear the cheering and the announcer from the MTC campus. It's amazing how far sound travels. But really annoying when you are trying to sleep.
Being a Sister Training Leader is a lot of work. You have meetings every Sunday and Tuesday. You discuss the problems the missionaries are having and how we can resolve them. Basically making sure everyone is in harmony and how to help everyone with their problems and concerns. With this calling, I've developed more charity and love which is what I have been praying for. So it's a great calling(:
Thanks Matt, Alexis JJ and of course MONTE for sending me Coco Bean Cupcakes! They were too pretty to eat though ahah the best one was the pumpkin cupcake. It reminded me of Half Moon Bay and pumpkin festival. I shared with everyone in my zone and they all loved it(:
Well that is all that basically happened this week, oh and last Sunday we had Chad Lewis speak to us. Brother Lewis was a NFL player for the Philadelphia Eagles. He introduced pro football to the people in China because he knew how to Speak zhongwen from serving a mission in Taiwan. He gave an inspirational talk about sharing your light of Christ in all that you do.
Oh Aunty Kristen and Uncle Christian, if you read this, I saw a pic of baby Cooper and I've decided that you two need to have more babies! They're so cute(:
