Week 61

Dear Family,

Elder Lee was called to serve in Holland and while waiting for his visa to Holland, he decided to serve in Singapore Mission so that he doesn't waste any time. This is a special case mostly for Singaporean that are waiting for their visa to serve outside of their country. KL District Conference is around November 23 - 24 I think. I am excited to meet everyone in the branch!!

Don't worry about me. Elder Lee used to serve in the military before. We actually discuss what we gonna do if anyone tries to mug us. He is gonna protect me while I am gonna run away as fast as I can. Haha! Just kidding! We will take good care of ourselves.

This week's was really busy. I couldn't tell you how exhausted I am but I definitely love it because I know that I have done my best. We went knocking the other day, and as usual doors were slam as us again and again. You know that I always love to disturb or kacau people. I saw 2 Indian kids on the road so I decided to talk to the kids instead. This is what I learnt in Sarawak. Kids are the most honest being in the world compare to others. I believe there is huge percentage of kids that will never lie to you. I know a little bit of greeting words in  Tamil and I greeting them. Suddenly one the kid came up to me and hug me. LOL

Then, I was like, alright, show me your house kids. By the way, both of these kids are not related. They are just friends to each other. They brought us to their house and I saw the mom standing outside and I started creating a random conversation with
Me: Hey I saw your kids on the road, I decided to return them back to you.
Mom: They are so naughty right!
Me: No no, I just decided that I want to walk them home. 
Then I started telling the mom who we were and started talking and the mom told us to follow this other kid home because he is a Christian. So we followed this other kid home. We were outside the house and the parents wouldn't come out because the mom was sweeping the floor and the dad was showering at that time. I tell myself no way I am going away because I was so exhausted at that time. So I decided to sit outside and talk to this bunch of kids. Then the dad walked out and we went and talked to him and we showed him The Book of Mormon. This is the situation; His name is Danny.
Danny: OHH!! I have that book! (He went in and grab the book)
Elder Lee: No way! You must be having Bible

He showed us the 1st generation of Kitab Mormon (Book of Mormon in Malay) and then started telling us that their house got burned down and that he wants to meet with us again.


Sometimes the Lord works in a very mysterious ways and I always tell my district. Don't stick to only one approach. Try different approach. I love my district because they are always willing to learn and wanting to become better. I'd seen how they grown a lot from the first time I met them.

This coming week is gonna be even more busy with our schedule since we will back from Singapore on Wednesdayand then there is much to prepare for the Open House on Saturday. I am looking forward to all of these wonderful things in my life.

I love Malacca branch especially when Angelo, Anna and Rachel is here and they are the reason why I love this branch and wanted to make it even better. I cant wait to hang out with them again after my mission!

Love all of you!

Elder Tan
