Monday we went to another Escape Room, this time being called Imprisonment. We were tasked with escaping from a jail cell and rigging security systems. It was a lot of fun.
Tuesday we had the great experience of Elder Hobbs's first District Meeting. He did a great job, focusing on the purpose of Sacrifice. That night we did some contacting and met a nice man named Jose. We told him we were 'lost' (we were walking around), and he led us back for a while, giving us a nice chance to talk. He gets back from kampung tonight, so we hope to meet him tomorrow.
We had interviews at the church with President mains, the first time since I was with Elder Parker in Sibu. It was a great experience, President Mains is such a inspired man, we were able to talk for a while about the current state of the mission and what we could do to help it. Immediately after that some members gave us a deliciously huge durian that everyone in our house had to eat that night.
Elder Poppleton got some really cool inspiration for our area a couple days ago, he thought it would be a good idea to start doing a family prayer with a bunch of struggling families that live not only near each other, but near the church. Last night was the second night of doing so, one of them told us her son had been arrested and her husband was drunk. She felt so hopeless and powerless that she admitted to suicidal tendencies. We told her we had no idea what she was feeling, but Jesus Christ did. We read a little, Alma 7:11-13, and said a prayer with her. The spirit was incredibly strong.
It was such a strong witness that we were there when we were needed to be.
Yesterday was also the day that Elder Randy Funk came to our branch! It was a great experience, he served his mission in Indonesia and could still speak the language somewhat, but I was asked to translate.
I love you all so much! This next week will be just as great, following up with some potential investigators!
