Week 37

Congratulations Range for getting 1st place in the competition. I am sure her schedule will be fully booked after this competition which mean in other word she will earn a lot. That means she needs to belanja makan. Anyway, yesterday I met Sis Sophie Ting, Janelle and her oldest sister together with Merille's parent in Kota Kinabalu branch. I would it was a huge surprise and I never know that Sis Sophie's hometown is in Kota Kinabalu. It's good to see familiar faces after being away for some time. 

Serving here in Singapore Mission is getting more and more excited and more more work to be done. Recently, we receive new instructions focusing on less actives beside just new investigators. We will be having 3 more key indicators or goals such as less active in church, less active being taught, less active on date to come back to church, receive calling, or preparing to go to temple. Frankly speaking, I am very very impress and amaze with President Mains for the things that he had done in Malaysia. I can totally see huge differences right now. 

I love Kota Kinabalu 1st branch but there is a lot more challenges waiting for us. For instance, this is my first time meeting people from Seventh Day Adventists. And first time being asked a lot questions on Sabbath. It kinda took awhile for me to look through the scriptures to really understand. For the past weeks, we have been doing a lot of contacting, visiting members and finding new people. On another occasion, I have to train Elder Allen to speak fluently in Malay. Look at all these stuffs. Its all stacking up and everyday is just so busy, tiring and most important satisfy and happy. 

I don't know what will be my next step. I do not want to do this by myself and that is why every night I kneel before God asking for guidance, revelation and strength to be able to do what he wanted me to do. If it wasn't prayer every night, I would have collapse or fall into misery thinking that I can't do this, I don't want to do this anymore. Therefore, one of the things that I am really grateful for is prayer. Prayer has definitely help me a lot in my life by giving  me motivations, strength to be able to continue to do what I need to do. 

I remember saying this but I want to say it again, remember remember remember, pray always :) 

I love you all.
