I hope I can live up to that expectation!

Dear Beautiful People

Life is so great, isn't it? 

I'm sitting here emailing you from the great country of Singapore! We flew in for Zone Conference this morning.
This week has been wonderful! The work is progressing and the Gospel is true. 
So last Monday the entire Bowling Arena was taken up in intense national Malaysian championships. We were unable to go bowling, but we did the next best thing! We wandered around KL Sentral forever! It really was very fun though.
Tuesday we had a shortened district meeting with less people then usual, but Elder Beckstrand gave an excellent training to us all. He and Elder Lalemont (a Frenchman from Canada) are our great District Leaders right now. The best part though was afterwards, when Elder Rassmussen, Elder Moore's Trainer, took us out to an all expense paid trip to Chili's! It was literally so good I almost cried. Not really. But Steak Quesadilla was a nice change from other foods.
Wednesday was the Birthday itself. I made Elder Moore breakfast. We went contacting for a majority of the day until that night when we had Bubba Gump Shrimp Comp. for dinner, as paid by his father! Also incredibly delicious!
Thursday was our weekly planning.  Other than appointments, we had nothing extremely exciting other than that.
People! Armon was taken off date this week. We had to tell him we would meet with him in a couple weeks because he needed to come to make his own decisions to keep the commitments. Something must have happened though, because he came for all three hours of church this week! He'd never done that before! It was an incredible faith building experience for me.
Evelyn is still amazing as usual. We weren't able to meet as much because she was feeling sick. But, she still made it to Sacrament and sent us an amazing text message last night.
Zach (the kid that took us to the night market) met with us again. We explained more about the Book of Mormon and he wanted to learn more. He's an interesting character, very philosophical and very well read in religions. Right up my Debate minded alley.
We met a new investigator this week named Vijiyn (VeeGeeIn). She was referred by Jasmine because Jasmine is her boss. She was a nice Hindu girl living out near Klang that we will have to teach slow, but she's excited. It was funny because she said Jasmine referred her because she hoped that "She would find a good man". I hope I can live up to that expectation!
Anyway, love you so much! Zone Conference this week, Frisbee on the Singapore beach today!
