Hello Wonderful People!
This week has been a great one overall!
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday were mostly shot for missionary work because of our Zone Conference, but that doesn't mean we didn't get stuff done. Wednesday we flew out and that took basically our day, but we still went to Chili's for dinner that night. It's apparently the only place in Singapore or Malaysia that has free refills on drinks or chips, and we had both! Needless to say there were many happy missionaries that night.
Zone Conference itself was amazing the next day. It was kind of like the M.T.C. crossed with General Conference completely focused on Missionary work ALL DAY LONG! Then it was all topped off with endless Papa John's pizza. We learned a lot and had a lot of guidence, and we also had like 20 departing testimonies with a lot of advice mixed in.
One cool thing was when we got lost trying to find Chili's, we were just wandering around the endless shopping malls when a random guy named Jason came up to us. He asked what church we represented and if we could give him a book or something, so of course we gave him a B.O.M. He thanked us and said he would read it.
Then on the M.R.T. back to the Airport, Before our last stop, I placed a B.O.M. again. It was this cool guy named Fren Lee and he was super interested. He was an Asian that had gone to a Catholic school growing up, had heard a little, and wanted to learn more. He was happy that I was actually willing to give him the book! He even asked what Terminal we were going to so we could keep talking, but we had to leave. I just wrote mormon.org on the inside cover.
Other miracles this week: We've really seen the Spirit working on the Panang family right now. It's amazing how far they've come and how much they comprehend even though they cannot read the Book of Mormon! We're stepping through the Plan of Salvation of them right now, and they've become much more reverent during prayers. We also invited them to Church and 3 of them came! For like a 30 minute walk! It was so cool to have them there! We also had a less active come and bring the children of another less active family we are working with that the parents can't come (the children on the bikes in that one picture).
Anyway, Elder W summed up a lot of the other things I could have said culturally in his letter last week, and I'll be sure to keep you guys updated! I love you so much! We feel your prayers and love even though we're so far apart! Elder W ate his Pickled Egg today with Elder Fletcher and Almost Puked!
Love you all!
