This last week was pretty good, but by far the best part was calling all of you! That was definitely the highlight of my week and it's been a pretty good Christmas week over all.
This last Monday we had a really fun P-Day activity when we were able to go to an Escape Room (it was so awesome we almost want to do it again today). It was Da Vinci Code themed, meaning we had to solve puzzles that gave us codes to open doors using colors, pictures, numbers, letters and patterns (sometimes all in one puzzle). It was way hard, and we accidentally placed the wrong code into the last door, causing a 1 minute delay that prevented us from finishing in an hour. It was the best P-day thing I've done in a long time (in SIbu it was only Rugby).
That night we visited the 1st councellor's family, Bro. Pelima and his wife and daughter. That was the beginning of a long stream of Christmas visits that lasted all Tuesday and Wednesday. We literally met with probably 20 families, sharing brief messages (Usually Alma 7: 11-13). It was exhausting, but fun.
Thursday morning we called! Yay! The rest of that day was parties at various member houses, including President Changai's house, and a member brought us out to Brother Beliang's house!
President Main's counsellor, President Arrow, invited everyone for an American Christmas party (he's rich enough to afford it). It was a great time, but almost distracting as all it was was AMAZING FOOD and people watching movies. We got to talk a lot though, that was really fun. We met with Sofia, a girl that contacted herself and this last Sunday brought us to meet her family. It was a little awkward as the uncle, the only male there, left a little after we started. We finished the lesson teaching through the doorway, mostly focusing on the identity of God and prayer.
Sunday night we had a lesson with Sundau, a convert of some years already. Her nonmember husband had said we could meet him that day earlier in the week, but that night he didn't want. He still let us in though because it was raining. We met with her anyway, finding that she had still held strong on pure faith although her children had fallen away from the church. She prayed for them all daily. We decided that this week before fast Sunday we would all pray for her family daily, and fast together at the end of the week. She is a very touching example to all of us.
