Here's Coy's letter!

Hello everyone! Crazy week, lots of fun, and transfers today!

Three stories for you
Monday we had a very cool experience. The internet kedai was closed when we got there, so we ran to mail a letter home. That's an important plot point.
The rest of Monday was normal busy P-day stuff until we went to do our daily hour of happiness, our daily contacting hour. We decided on the address of a potential investigator to investigate, to find that the road didn't exist. We called the number to find that she had moved to K.L. indefinitely, so we started heading to a new dinner place Elder O'Bryant had noticed on the map.
En route, the bolt holding the teeth of my back tire fell off, so we started walking home (we weren't too far). Then Elder O'Bryant remembered a chicken-rice place he and Elder Harr had eaten at before. We stopped there, and I went to wash my bicycle grease covered hands. A kind Indian man sitting at a table went to his car and got a bar of soap for me that he randomly picked up at a hotel and gave it to me.
We ended up contacting him and his wife, both incredibly kind and solid people, very interested in the gospel. They are visiting K.L. for a couple weeks, but they promised to call us when they get back.

A lot of appointments fell through the week, but we have been feeling that we have been doing our best.
Saturday saw a couple more miracles. Elder O'Bryant felt impressed that we should call our District President, President Sulai. He was in the hospital for his appendix, and we were able to see how to help him.
Also, that night the Stampin sisters had a baptism. We didn't really have a reason to go, so we weren't planning on it. We felt impressed to go again, so we did. It was good to see the Stampin members again, but Elder O'Bryant met some investigators he had passed off to the international sisters before, a certain Hilary and Meghan. It was really good for them to meet again, and the sisters thought of it as a miracle.

Sunday also was great, as Jihap's family came to church again, even without him! He and Cecillia had gone to K.L. but the entire family still drove to church, with two brothers that we had not yet met. The branch welcomed them warmly, and they seemed to enjoy it.

I sent another memory card home this week, love you all so much!

Coy will be working with a new companion, Elder Lundquist!
