Week 28


Singapore trip was pretty good I guess. I lost my luggage and they found it back and send it to me which is scary because this is my first experience. I am pretty sure next time when it happen again, I know what to do. And I have the opportunity to see Johnathan. He is struggling a little bit but no worries. I think he will do well. Due to the recent incident in Sabah, some elders were prohibited from entering into Sabah so according to predictions and some information from others, the natives might need to go to Sabah in the next transfer which is next Thursday. I do not know what is going to happen to me but I definitely would love to stay in Sibu a little while more because of a recent announcement that they are gonna place 1 more set of Senior Couple and missionaries to help reactivating less actives. 

The branch that I am serving right now is starting to grow a lot. The first few months when I was here, the church attendance was less than 20 but we manage to increase it to 30 and then 40 and then now 50. Yesterday we have 67 attendance in the church. I had set my goal of 65 church attendance for few months back but never able to achieve it but yesterday we were able to achieve it. We'd looked into several potential less actives and are in progress to reactivate them. Guess how many less actives family were in the church yesterday? 11 less active families!! And at the same time, we gather all the 8 years old kids to get them ready for baptism, we have 6 baptism for 8 years old kids this Saturday. We are hoping for the next Sunday, we are able to get people holding temple recommend to show that people are actually following commandments. 

We work too much with less actives that we didn't even focus on investigators, now, we are trying to balance ourselves in reactivating less actives and at the same time find more new people. So this week is gonna be a lot on less actives and investigators. 

Speaking of this week, we are leaving again to Kuching on Wednesday to meet with Elder and Sister Gong of The Quorum of the First Seventy. We'd been traveling a lot lately and I am so broke due to the Singapore trip. And for the first time, I am soooo sicked of flying. Oh, I earned a title of frequent flyer on my tickets. So every tickets that I have has a frequent flyer title on it xD That is so cool.
