Week 18


Last week was an awesome week in Sibu since it was Christmas week. We had 8 meals on Christmas day. Thankfully I am able to pull other elders to go with us. More people would mean I can eat less. So the first meal starts at 10am. Second at 11:30am. Third at 1:00pm. Fourth at 3:00pm. Fifth at 4:00pm. Sixth at 5:30pm. Seventh at 6:30pm. Eighth at 7.30pm. It was my first Christmas on mission and it was soo crazy because a lot more members wanted us to come over but we couldn't because our schedule was kinda tight. Later that week, a member invited us over for her 70th Birthday party. So basically last week was all about eating eating eating. I thought it was over but this week, members invited us over again for New Year celebration. 

Beside that, we'd been to the senior couple's house for 3 consecutive days for lunch. It was really great since I get to try out a lot of different foods. An Italian missionary made a pizza. An Australian missionary made spaghetti. And other more foods. 

Btw, I have an opportunity to visit a member workplace. This is the member that I called earlier to talked to the boss so that the boss would let him go to church. And then at this time, I meet with the boss to thank him for letting Bro. Gima go to the church. And at the same time, I shared what I believe in Chinese and it was my first time. I couldn't say I have done a great job but at least I had start planting a seed in his heart. Somehow someday, someone will harvest that seed. And then again, this time, I asked the boss again to let Bro. Gima to go to church on Sunday. And so he did. Bro. Gima came to church. I guess words couldn't really express how thankful I am to the boss but I will have to plan one day to go the workplace to do some service. 

Members here had been treating us really well but we are not gonna take things for granted. Every meal that we received means that we need to work harder. 

Good luck and all the best to everyone in the world.
