|Sara and MTC Companion arrived in Taipei on Dec 13!|
We got a call from her to say she arrived safely!
We were able to talk to her from SLC airport before she flew out
and during a layover in Seattle. Happy Day!!

Sorry mom I literally have two minutes left :(
Time went by so quickly, but I just want to tell you all I am doing great. I am in the Neihu area. It is named after the two great lakes that are here. It is really beautiful and fairly warm here still. I am about 45 min away from the temple and mission office. It is great. My companion is a native from Taichung. She is so great. This is her first time training and 3rd time with a foreign companion. She has taken such great care of me though I can tell this is a very different experience for her. I was so exhausted mentally from translating all day, but it is definitely getting better. The Lord has been helping me so so much!!! I am so glad to be here. My companion is named sister T.. and she is great!
I meant to send the first part earlier today, but my time cut out on the computer... I had to buy another hour. I just wanted to let ya know that though we have an hour now we have to use that time to write our branch pres too, so I don't really have any more time at all and for some reason I had a bunch of email updates from other missionaries. I can't email them back, but anyways I will figure out how to use my hour better next time... My companion and I agreed it was better to send something today then wait a whole week cuz I knew you would be worried. Oh I also wanted to ask you to email before 4pm on Sunday too because I will be getting on email really early in the morning on P-day. If I hadn't got back on I wouldn't have received your emails. We can also set up times to call 12-? our time on the 25th or same time on the 26th. I forwarded the email on that said the times I think. Let me know when you would prefer with the time changes and everything and I will try and work something out with my companion.
