Dearest Family, Happy Chinese New Year!! 恭喜發財，拿紅包來！新年快樂！洋洋得意！ There's your Chinese for the week :) haha At Chinese New Year the people all head back to their birthplaces and spend time with their families. This year the Holiday season in for the space of 6 days and pretty much what happens is they eat, and eat, and go on nice little walks, and then eat and eat some more, and then go back to work at the end of the holiday. We as missionaries are taken care of very well... every single day, and every single meal is scheduled by members to feed us :) So this week has been super crazy because Elder Greenhalgh and I have been helping President Day with interviews, but he wanted us to go to all of our visits with these members.... Taipei is a very big city and we have been doing lots of running to and from those visits back to give training to missionaries, but it's been great!! :) I love serving the Lord. Like I've said before... I can't speak very clearly how I feel, but I know that there is no way that I would be here in Taiwan and serve here and see people change their lives unless the Savior really did Live. Brother Huang and Sister Wu are now married!!! :) He passed his baptismal interview on Tuesday night and will be baptized on Thursday next week! February 26th. We hope to see Sister Wu baptized on mom's birthday... March 14th :) We are meeting with the Lai Family tonight and we are super stoked about them :) We'll get back to you about that later :) Like I said... this last week we have been giving training to missionaries as President Day does interviews this last week and we will also be doing so next week from Monday (thus Elder Greenhalgh and I are having our P-Day today) up until Wednesday night when 19 of our visa waiters come in!!!!! :) Heavenly Father has answered our prayers and we are super excited :) Thanks for your prayers! Next week I'll send you more pictures, but that's it for now. :) I love you all!!!!!!!!!! Have a great Happy Chinese New Year :) Hurrah For Israel!!!!!!! Love, Elder Westover pics! Costco trip with Sister Day! Chinese New Year meals!
