Week 96

Hey Family,

Way to go mom! I know that missionaries are so in love with Puchong branch because of mom but nevertheless, missionary work must still be the focus. I don't know who is Amy or who is Julia. I really do need help in the names of the people in the church. You need to sending me names of people so that I already know their name even before I am back. I am so excited to come back to my own branch. Of all the branches that I have been, Puchong branch is still the best. 

A lot of branches I have been faces problem like lack of leadership, fellowship and so on. Puchong branch definitely has problem but not as bad as lacking of leadership and fellowship. 

My goal of finding a wife is that her top priority should always be God first and then family comes second. We are living in a world that is so much different that any other generation that we need to rely upon our God, how can I expect my future family to be happy if there is no such foundation yet.  We are talking about eternity/forever here. I have already set my goal toward not just this life but towards eternity. 
We have been less actives before and I realized how much blessings we lost through that process and I never want any of us to go back to the same path again where the blessings are withheld from us. 

Leah will be the 6th member serving as a missionary from the branch. A lot of the missionaries were very impressed when I told them that we have 5 members serving as a missionaries. It is not very common in Malaysia I guess. Congratulations to Leah! I am excited to meet with all these new members! 

I don't really know what time I will be coming back on August 2nd. I am thinking most likely morning or noon time. But I am most likely going to Singapore on August 1st to have an exit interview with President Mains and dinner. It's really scary to think that I literally have less than 30 days left and my life as a missionary is over and never able to wear the name tag anymore. 

I am pushing myself to the point that I do not want to regret after my mission for not giving my very best. I have a new companion from Cheras and his name is Elder Ferguoson. Pity him that he is with me for my last 4 weeks. This week we have 4 appointments with 4 non investigators(people that we are meeting first time). Can you believe that? I don't know how I got all those appointment but I remember kneeling down praying and pleading very very hard for more people to teach and then started going out and talk with everyone that I meet. 
We have several experience where people tried to anti people that we teach in front of us. Let me share some of them that is not very sensitive. We met a really awesome lady name Rostina, and her neighbour came out and spoke iban to her and told her not to listen to us. Luckily, I understand some iban and told Rostina not to listen to her neighbour instead but let us come back another day so that we could explain more because there isn't any male at her home at that time. She told me that she would write down all her questions and talk face to face with me about all her questions! Second experience, we were on the gate talking with our investigator, Madline while 2 guys on the motor passed by us and were yelling, "Kak, jangan dengar cakap mereka, meraka orang gila." Madline were pretty angry and were like, "Sibuk." I have got to the point where I wont be angry or frustrated cox it just wont change anything. Let's be positive. 


I guess I wont be receiving email on my last week then because neither of you will be in Malaysia unless dad wants to write me? 

Please remember how much I love each of you and wanted eternity with each of you! :)

We have to cross this bridge to get to the field to play with those kids.
