Hello everyone! This week was crazy but pretty good, here's the gist of it.
The work went a little slower for a couple reasons, as some of the families we have been working with have fallen through for a variety of reasons. Monday was fun, we danced a lot. A Lot. Sister Coward from New Zealand had choreographed this massive Broadway level production of a Christmas medley dance that took our P-day and part of District meeting to rehearse. It was a lot of fun though and we pulled it off pretty well. The only adverse reaction was after it was all done my knee started to hurt a little, might have pulled something. Nothing serious, but Sister mains just told me to ice it and go a little easier for a while. No worries though :-)
That was a lot of our week, and the party itself was on Wednesday. It was a blast, full of performances from all the branches. Ours was best on American standards, but nobody really appreciated it on Iban levels.
Friday was a fun day, we went on exchanges with the other Stampin Elders. I went with Elders Tan, and Elder Poppleton went with Elder Hobbs. It was a fun day, we randomly found an arcade machine at a mall that could have won us iPad Mini's and smart phones as Elder Tan went to order some new glasses that were on New Year sale (by the way HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015!). That night we were able to meet Elder Jahali's family (one of the Elders in Sibu). It was awesome, and Elder Tan is a great Elder.
Saturday we went and started a fast with a less active lady that is incredibly strong in her faith. Her husband never joined the Church and her kids all fell away, but her faith is inspiring. It's hard for her to come on her own, but we started a fast together for fast Sunday. There's a large number of women with less active or non-member husbands here, to the point where I have been praying for them collectively. I don't know how to help them as all of those men have no interest or weird doctrines. I almost hope God will just help to humble them enough to turn back to Him.
I love you all so much! Today we might actually get those swords! Love you!
