Week #81 Good Luck to all the new Missionaries

Well, you are all looking at the brand spanking new district leader... ghaha. Before all my RM friends roll their eyes, ahahah it’s a big deal for me, because I get to do DTM the way it was supposed to be...but it will be interesting. Anyways, this week has been an interesting week... I have found that I have preached with way to much fire, and I need to be less blunt.... a couple of members who I would say are dear friend have gone less active, and man I feel like it’s because of me. Sometimes I am way to blunt. I have found that part of being a missionary or a representative of Christ is that sometimes you have to say something even when you obviously do not want to say that. But you have too because it’s what you believe.
Well, my little brother is going on a mission... I am super proud of him I will miss him like crazy but I know he is going to be the best missionary ever. He has all the skills and talents and he is stubborn like me so he won't give up. He is an awesome kid. Elder Noll and I were talking last night and we both believe that the hardest part of all of this is watching both our younger brothers walk off on this huge adventure, and we won't see them for a total of 3 and half to 4 years... I know that Ryan and Zach know how we feel, but we feel that they are going to do amazing. We are both super proud of Jessi and Jacob. Go forth to serve.
This week in a nutshell… was insane. One thing that is hard about Taiwan, is that there is pornography everywhere!!! It’s ridiculous, and no one even cares ... It’s really sad.
The other elders had an investigator drop out this week, which was really sad because he was super ready ... I had the font filled and everything.... I actually almost flooded the chapel which is pretty funny! ahahha
I found out that I am staying in Gangshen, and I might be able to finish my mission here!!! I only have about 4 months left. It’s crazy to think. I am glad I am here. It’s a wonderful place, and I love it.
My new comp is awesome
One thing that I have found to be a blessing is a site called fairmormon.org. If anyone has any problems or questions about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) or the Book of Mormon, I beg you go to this site. It will answer a lot of the questions you may have. When people here about anti-mormon stuff, they assume the church ignores it. Oh no they don’t! The church has some very, very smart people on their side and they answer all the questions. It’s a really cool thing.
Good luck to all the new missionaries! You are all awesome, and will do so well!!!

Elder Buhler
