Week 77

Hey family, 

I did receive the money from Elder Rasmussen! Thank you for the money! I have $50 dollar left for the next trip to Singapore. My sick has gotten a lot better the last Monday but on the second day, I got sick again and also on Wednesday but now I am a lot better just that sometimes I am dizzy and I am losing my voice right now because of sore throat. Do you know how long I slept on Wednesday? 23 hours of sleep!! I only woke up for an hour to take shower and then head back to bed. It was really bad and I haven't recover completely yet, I might become sick again if Satan wants to bring me down again. On the bright side, I am soooo motivated even though I am half sick because Elder Bodhaine is going to become my companion. There is a lot that we will achieve in Miri. 

There are so many things that I want to talk about but I just want to share this really cool experience. Remember Pattrickson? The less active kid? He is now fully active with her mom who is not a member. They have been coming to church almost every week. Pattrickson has change so much! The other day we were in a lesson with his mom, Ceceilia, she started crying and saying how much she wants Pattrickson to change (Pattrickson was there in the lesson with us as well) and how much she wants her older daughter, Nancy to come back. Her daughter ran away with another guy but is staying around the same area. I always have the attitude of sympathy and wanting to help but most of the time I couldn't do it because I am either not allowed to or I do not have the authority to. On the second day, I talked to the brother, hey I am bringing you to McDonald to have lunch and then after that we will track down your sister. The best part, Pattrickson forgotten where his sister stay and we couldnt find it but I told him, we will find your sister even though we have to knock this whole area. So I started knocking asking knocking asking. This young boy impress me when he took the lead knocking for the several door locating his sister. Guess what? We found the sister. And I took some of the time lecturing her for running away. HaHa. I did it in a loving way and I try to convince her to go home but she wouldn't want to go home. I guess maybe she was too shy. Anyway, I told her that this is your family matter and I do not want to be part of the problem but I am giving you some advices and I gave her some.

Next part of the story, we recently taught Kenny's family and apparently Pattrickson's family know them! It so much convenient right now because there is going to be a support system in the church because they know each other and they are most likely to support each other. During the lesson with Kenny's family, Pattrickson was sitting beside me whispering to me, Elder Elder, Nancy is back! She came back home. I was like, what! How did it happen? He told me that his grandma managed to convince her to go home. Now that is really a happy moment to help a family to locate their missing daughter. I am pretty sure we have gain a lot of trust from them. 

Do you know that Elder Tan is going to be in Puchong branch!? That's the son of mom's friend in Penang. Hahah. 

Couldn't write more because too much things to do today. See you next week.
