There's no way this was only a week. It felt like two years ago I was emailing you guys last.
Hello Family! Thank you so much for the overflowing love and support I've felt this week! You're the greatest!
The Beach Party was extremely fun. Pics coming. It was a great time, and it suprises me now that it wasn't the highlight of the week.
Remember the Kampung we found? Well we met with the people there. Sis. Raca got all her less-active friends and we all met in one house. They all expressed desires to go to church, but they haven't come for almost ten years. Apparently the bus that goes to the church stopped running, and the missionaries lost track of them somehow a long time ago. One of the women had a 14 year old daughter that we're going to start teaching for Baptism this week! So Awesome!
This Friday we had the great opportunity to go to Kutching for the Christmas Conference, where I got the BIGGEST PACKAGE OF ANYONE THERE! Thank you so much for the raw love I felt from that! We're going to be re-enacting How The Grinch Stole Christmas for the Christmas Party this weekend. I'll be the Narrator.
Better then that though was the 9 letters I received! Thank you so much! They really warmed my heart to hear your news. It seems what Dear Elder does is put all the letters from one entire week in one envelope and send it overseas all at once, because the latest date I got your letters from was Dec. 1st. Written Replies to those will be coming!
ALSO BE PREPARED FOR A MASSIVE BOX! LATE CHRISTMAS GIFT! PROBABLY A COUPLE MONTHS IN COMING!
After we got mail we had a wonderful conference. The Mains's are some of the greatest people. We all were very spiritually touched by everything. We got to create humanitarian kits, I was the Angel in the Nativity, and we watched the 1st Pres. Christmas Conference!
Sunday we got to meet with a Relative of Sis. Katrina, name of James. He was a very prepared man that Sis. Katrina gave a Book Of Mormon to, and he told us he's listening to us because he wants to come closer to God. He speaks English, but can't read it, so he uses the Malay B.O.M. He wants to come to church every Sunday and discuss the B.O.M. afterwards.
The Other exciting thing is that we have been getting home late every night we didn't have a previous engagement going carolling with the branch. We go to every members home. jam as many people as possible inside, sing 2 songs, Pres. Langgie or Bro. Saban (1st Councillor) share a Christmas Message, and we pray, then all caravan to the next one. They feed us a ton and it's so much fun, but tiring and late. Worth it though.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! ENJOY THE PICS!
LOVE YOU ALL MORE THEN I CAN EXPRESS!
