That being said, about an hour after feeling sick, I went back downstairs and ate two more slices of cake. I am American.
Well now that you all understand the literal worst part about my mission here in Taiwan, let’s get to the good stuff. 🙂
This week was honestly kind of boring. I probably walked around Qishan about 100 times. (that’s completely false but it feels like that much) We also did more knocking on doors this week. OH WAIT. Okay I just remembered an important discovery that I will be discussing further down in this email. 🙂 Anyways, we went tracting on Friday night in the rain. That was fun. I haven’t had my rain coat in my bike box in a long time, but after that night I put it in my bike box. Let’s just say I had the opportunity to use the shoe dryers my parents sent me for Christmas. But don’t worry folks, I took my rain medicine (inside joke that only Elder Watson will laugh at).
Wednesday we had the wonderful opportunity to visit John Sullivan and teach him. It was pretty funny because that day he didn’t have time to make lunch so he just drove us to this little place down the street. I could tell he had been there a billion times because without saying anything to the woman working there, he just started grabbing tofu, seaweed, and hard boiled eggs and began chopping them himself. Later I found out I was wrong, he had only been there about a half a million times. My bad, whoops. But yeah, John Sullivan is doing well. He actually thinks he may have made it over the last hump before quitting alcohol for good, so that’s way exciting! He’s so cool. I love that man.
NOW GET THIS, and read carefully because this is perhaps the most important news I have this week. On Thursday we went to the college in 內門. While there me met some people. Fast forward to that night, we were walking down this random street in the corner of 旗山 knocking on doors. We pass by these two kids. One says to us, “hey! I just met you earlier today!” (we met him at the college) We then asked him what he was doing. He replied, “我在做那個mexican taco.” Wait what? MEXICAN TACO! M-E-X-I-C-A-N T-A-C-O?? We both almost fainted. Sadly, at that moment, they had yet to finish getting their little taco stand ready for the night, so we had to decide to come back later. Tonight however, we will be going back. If indeed we found legitimate tacos made by two random Taiwanese college student in the corner of 旗山, then this might perhaps be the greatest late night encounter I have ever had in Taiwan. And one of the greatest miracles.
Well folks, I love you. Have a wonderful day. God lives and don’t forget it!
Also, thank you for everyone responding to my email last week. Now I know who really loves me. (I’m just kidding) 🙂
Love, your most favoritest person in Taiwan,
