So ya yesterday we got hit by a pretty legit typhoon, we were inside like most of the day. Everything just shuts down here during a typhoon. EVERYTHING. The people here are crazy afraid of a little rain so typhoon hits and your done. We had a really interesting week. I was supposed to get a companion, probably someone from Taipei until my trainee gets here but President just put me with the elders in my district, so I had to move apartments AGAIN. Probably the third time in the past month, but I won’t have a companion for like 2 more weeks, its still a mess I don’t know if they will get here in the middle of the transfer or just wait and have 50 misisonaires come in at once. Anyways its a mess.
We had an outdoor zone conference in Hualian this week, which is basically a hike with some training from President and the Assistants. And we went to the one place in Taiwan that I have always wanted to go to!!! Its called Taruko Gorge and its the coolest thing ever, my pictures won’t even do it justice just go look it up on Google. Crazy fun, but it was on Friday and that Saturday and Sunday we were supposed to have district conference in Hualian so we thought we were going to just stay up there, cause its like 3 hours away but we came back friday night and were going to go up again saturday afternoon but the typhoon hit and it got cancelled… so long story short we had to wake up at 3:45 am to get on a bus up there and got back at 10:30 that night. SOOOO tired….
So my companions now are 2 pretty young Elders. One is brand new and his trainer is pretty young too. They both aren’t from Utah, so they think there is just this ‘thing’ about Utah kids and how they are all posers. I don’t know..
