Ello Wonderful Family! We are celebrating Thanksgiving early today with the entire Zone, so Happy Thanksgiving as well!

This last week was incredibly weird. Every day had random challenges and miracles that I can't remember or write them all, here's some of the better ones.

President Balley had given us some inspired advice to focus our finding in Permai Jaya, and we did find many people. Some of them still need to be followed up, but Kelvinson and Ignatius referred us to some of their relatives that live down the street. They have a car, but it hasn't been used in a very long time and might not start without some work. Still, they brought some of their younger cousins and they all attended church together. Also, David Kong gave Kelvinson the Aaronic Priesthood. 

Jerry is at the make-it-or-break-it stage. We had a powerful lesson with him, where after some specific scriptures and doctrines were shared he finally opened up with his true feelings. He does not want to join the church because he is not brave enough to admit that there are indeed churches that are wrong and one that is right. Then the strangest thing happened. The Spirit directed us to bring up Adam and Eve. The analogy flowed, and we placed Jerry in the Garden. He is in a state of contentment, where he does not yet posses the full knowledge of Good and Evil. God has given the opportunity to eat the fruit. Jerry must make his choice between the easy life he has or the one that will let him progress. We extended the commitment to attend church one time only and see if God will pour out a blessing or not. He claims to believe in the Book of Mormon, but not in the consequences of that belief. He must make his choice for himself and his family.

Other then that, we had exchanges with the Zone Leaders and the Chinese Elders, and did some baptismal interviews! President Mains has challenged the mission to find all children 9 and older that are not yet baptized. He still believes we can hit our goal for the mission.

Love you so much family! I love all your letters so much! Have a great week!
