Oh man this last week has been fantastic!
To start, I'm picking up directly after I finished emailing last week.
We rushed off for Elder Moore's doctor appointment across town before heading to one of the single biggest and funnest missionary get-togethers of my mission! I was able to visit and catch up with so many amazing friends and make many more. Apparently we are currently the biggest Zone in the mission, with about 14 companionship's covering all of K.L. It was a blast, incoming pictures.
The definite highlight of the week though was the amazing Zone Conference the next day. All day included many amazing instructions from the A.P.'s and President Mains. I am so grateful to be here, where the Gospel is being spread in probably the single most complicated and dedicated effort in the world. Some exciting things did happen, but I wrote a lot more in my written letter.
After the conference we went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. More pics coming from that as well.
Our last activity was afterwards when we all met back at the Stake Center and had a massive party of Ninja, Mafia, and general fun. It was ridiculous how fun it was, seriously.
Anyway, the next day was mostly taken in flying back. We contacted much better, stopping people almost every 10 feet after we started again! It was awesome!
Updates for this week! Evelyn took us out to Sushi King for dinner. We taught her Tithes and Fast offerings this last Sunday. She is so prepared, it's amazing. She moved her date back a week though so her best friends could come.
We had an interesting Experience this week as well. A former investigator we have been trying to get in contact with called us one morning and asked if we could come teach him that day. Of course we said we could. We ran over to 1Utama for that. His name was Nadeem, from Pakistan. We had a long lesson with him. He had been prepared for Baptism, but hadn't met with missionaries for almost 2 months. He had begun to fall apart. It was one of the most spiritually strong lessons of my mission, and we both knew his mind was enlighted, but he ultimately rejected it. We had to drop him for good. It was sad, but Elder Moore and I both had the feeling we had done our best.
On a happier note, Fast and Testimony meeting was wonderful! Sister Ho had asked us to come and help her move some cabinets on top of each other, and rewarded us with food. She shared some interesting insights from the previous Elders, Bodain and O'Bryant. They said that in all missionary work, the success is gained as soon as you open your mouth. Whether the people you talk to accept the Gospel or not is their agency, but you are successful for how you used yours.
Also, Jackie, Adrian, Evelyn, AND Armon all came! It was so good to see all the people we've done work with come to church. We also ran out of Book of Mormon's this last week, handing out too many too fast. So we had other missionaries come to the church on Sunday and give us about 20 or so to stave us off. I carried them home in my suit!Love you all! Til Next week! Excited for General Conference!
