Week 75

Elder Schuetz told me before that he knew Adrian Foong! What a small world! 

The latest Kitab Mormon doesn't have "Allah" in it so I assume it is still usable I guess but I don't know because I have no idea what in the world is happening with Malaysia right now. Well, the elders that are serving in Puchong branch are supposed to preach in English, not Malay and I don't think they will preach in Malay because not a lot of missionaries serving in West Malaysia who can't speak fluent Malay yet. 

Yeah! Beatrice did told me that she will be coming back on 22nd August! The funny part is that I will be back a week earlier which is on the 14th August! And then bear my testimony and then the following week, she will bear her testimony. Oh btw, how is Nicholas doing? When is he planning to go back to BYUH? 

I told you that Elder Cranford and Elder Broadhead is really funny. Yeah, I know about the Chap Goh Mei tradition. If you ask me to try it, I don't think I will have the courage to do it because it is sometimes too scary if you meet with crazy people. I have met with a lot of these people in my mission already and I don't want to do it again. Haha. 

It's so good that the young men bore their testimony about missionary. I have been trying trying trying to get this branch excited about missionary work like I have said in my previous email. I could see some positive feedback and how some of the members came up to us and told us that they are sharing the gospel with their friends. Now this is what I wanted to achieve from the beginning. 

This past week has been really speechless and busy preparing for Chinese New Year party for Saturday. Long story short, I took up one of the missionary's job in monitoring the lap top because he didn't want to do it. I was already half sick on Friday night and we are preparing preparing for Saturday night trying to figure out how to work the sound system and the projector. The second day which is on Saturday, I promised one of the members to help build their house and I was already sick in that morning but I don't want to cancel the appointment and I know we would be a really good help to this family. So we went and we were knocking the nail on the wood, taking off some of the unused nail from the woods and so on. I felt like I have learn a lot from this service. I have learn how to use a hammer and know what is a good hammer and know how to cut the wood with a saw and so on. At the end of the service, I just laid dead on the couch in the member's house waiting for them to finish eating and I cannot eat if I am super super tired because I will throw up. So I got home and then I went to bed and slept for few hours and then woke up again to go to church to help on the CNY party.On Sunday, I only manage to go to the church and then slept for the whole day. I am still sick now but no worry I am hoping that I will be recovered tomorrow

Remember the Find the sheep program? It's being implemented in the whole district with the help of members from all branches and I obtain permission to use the church software for all the branch. Haha. And also I guess I am a pretty good branch clerk because I help sort out all the record in Miri 2nd. So you must tell Pres Teh to let me become a branch clerk. Haha.
I will be going to Singapore this Thursday

Elder Tan

Cycled for more than 30 minutes under the sun just to get to a house == 


One of the member from Chinese branch own more than 70 cock used for cock fighting. It's so common here in Sarawak
