Surprise a day Early!

This last week was pretty awesome. This morning we went to the same Mosjid again and it was fun and a little different tour. We went with all of KL zone missionaries. Right now it is Zone Conference. I had my interview with Pres. Clark and it went well he said I will have the opportunity to become fluent in Malay and just to be patience and stuff. They are working on getting our mission on to a 12 week transfer period to make it easier with not some much randomness and so things will flow better with the new elders coming in. There are transfers coming up this weekend and then at the beginning of June since there are missionaries going home. So will see what happens.

This last week we had a visitor come from Kuching who is Iban and she is waiting for her mission call which is way exciting for her. Also last week Jacob was baptized which was freaking awesome. The sad part was that not to many people came because are members say they’re too busy.... but what can you do? But he was way happy and bore a great testimony. Then the next day at church I confirmed him a member of the church which was cool. It’s so crazy how many people are here, so many different culture… its crazy awesome. We are still working with the Sri Lankins and they should hopefully get baptized this week.

Renee is doing awesome except her parents won’t even let her come to church anymore or learn from us but she still lets us teach her but, we need to try to get her back to church again. So I guess it just wasn't her time or we are just planting the seed. It’s sad but what can you do. All we can do is pray and try to get her to come to church at least.

We started teaching this awesome family this man named Mili and his wife from the Philippines. Mili is Bidiyu from Sarawak and his wife is from Manila in the Philippines and they have five awesome children Miguel, Michael, Mica, Milano, and Joseph. So awesome. They are so cool… the only problems is they live so far away. It’s so awesome to be teaching this family as a whole and have the opportunity to have this whole family come together in this church as long as they choose to accept. The father and the kids are very accepting and very excited to read the Book of Mormon. The wife is willing and asks a lot of good questions but, is a little more skeptical but, who knows. They are a pretty cool family and I am glad to be able to teach them.

Also on Sunday an Indonesian sister brought her Filipina friend to church which is way awesome and her friend is way interested and pretty much a golden investigator. She said she had been wondering which is the right church for her and where she needed to go. She felt very good at church was very happy to be able to meet us and to receive a Book of Mormon. I can already see the Lord blessing this area with awesome people to teach. I found an awesome scripture in Alma 26:27 which was way awesome and helped me out a bunch.

Well that’s all for this week. Talk to you on Sunday.
