I’m Dancing On My Own

I make the moves up as I go.
Hey Everyone I hope you are having a phenomenal week.
Mine has been really, unexpected.
Monday I spent most of the day meeting with Doctors in Taipei.
After much consultation it was decided that the best and safest course of action was for me to return to the states to receive medical treatment.
The decision did not come lightly.
So Tuesday I had my final time in Taiwan, had a nice district meeting, headed back into Taipei and had a really thoughtful dinner with the Mission President
Wednesday I boarded a plane at 11 and headed back in Time
Wednesday(in America) I got back to the land of the free and after some flight issues made it to Utah alive.
Thursday I went to the temple in Salt Lake and then received an honorable release from my service as a missionary in the Taiwan Taipei Mission.
Friday I went on some sick hikes with my dog.
Saturday I hit up Smith and Moorehouse and found a sweet rope swing and sent a back flip.
Sunday I went to church. I forgot how strange church is in English. Also, single’s wards…
yeah…
I know that the our Father in Heaven has a plan for each of us.

I know that there is wisdom in all things.
God is a God of Miracles.
Don’t forget to pray.
I love you all.

Here I am

Rock you like a Hurricane.
This week was pretty mellow.
I was inside a lot because of… the weather.
We had a typhoon hit Taiwan.
Unfortunately for me (but to the appreciation of concerned mothers abroad) my apartment is super solid and we had nothing even remotely exciting happen during the Typhoon.
I have a lot to think about as of late, but i love you all.
Also,
in regards to the fall of Mark Antony:
Mark Antony had held securely in his hands the control of an entire world, and there was no one upon the earth with sufficient power to take it from him except himself. But every one of us has within his reach a world that is far more significant than the world which belonged to Mark Antony. There is no power in the universe that can come between us and the celestial kingdom, except our own power. Only Antony can conquer Antony.
Refuse to be conquered.

This World Keeps Spinning Faster

To a new disaster so I run to you.
(Not T. Swift, but still a good song)
Miracles!
Miracles, miracles, miracles!
That’s what life is, a constant stream of miracles.
I forget who exactly said it, and the paraphrase is nowhere near as eloquent as the source quote, but remember:
We cannot be so vain to assume that we will wake up in the morning after we have touched our pillows at night.
Isn’t that kinda morbid but totally awesome?
The little things, or the things that are actually huge, that we so often take for granted are huge miracles.
Your heart is thumping, continually pumping, your lungs respirating, blood circulating, cells, dividing, mitochondria being the power plant of the cell.
Every second, everyday, for a large majority of your mortal ministry upon the Earth, your existence stands as a witness that there is a loving and merciful Father in heaven.
Don’t forget to talk to him.

Monday was rad. I ran like 6 or seven miles through the streets of Yilan and along the river.
Tuesday we did missionary things and had some great opportunities to remember that not everything will happen according to what we want, but according to the Lord’s time.
Wednesday we had English class and biked to the church. It was like a 50km round trip ride.
Fitness!!!
Thursday we planned and did more stuff in Yilan. yay stuff. Miracles!
Friday we got an opportunity to see that sometimes your body doesn’t always do what you except it to do on its own.
Saturday we had a lot of study opportunities and the chance to focus on the Lord’s timing.
Sunday I got a huge bowl of curry (vegan) from a member who knew i liked curry. Miracles!!!!
So get out there!
Move mountains!
and thank the Lord every morning you wake up.
Thank the Lord you didn’t get hit by a train in your sleep ( heard of that happening, in a book)
Keep fighting the good fight.
Remember, trust in the Lord means trusting in his timing .

​I run to you.
Ài,
Wáng Hēi Bào Zhǎnglǎo
