Week 48

I was reading an article from Elder M Russel Ballard, I decided to set this as my mission goal. I want to be able to become a missionary who can be placed in any area and in any set of circumstances and be relied on to set things rights.

I finish reading Book of Mormon the second time last week and I have come to know that it is really true!! You won't know its true until you start reading it! Yesterday in the church, my companion and I was teaching a young woman and a young man. I remember when I was a young man in the church. I didn't know how to stand by myself. Whenever someone criticize about my standard or ask me question about church's commandment.I either go silent or do not know how to answer them. But right now, if you ask me the same question again, I will stay silent. So, in the class, I commit this 2 youth to finish reading Book of Mormon in 2 weeks and I know that they are having holidays now. The Book of Mormon has 531 pages. Finishing 531 pages in 2 weeks is more than possible! But I told them that they are not gonna do that alone, because I will read with them and finish it together with them in 2 weeks. So, I have to follow up on both of them to make sure that they keep reading. Then I taught them Plan of Salvation to be able to share with their friends, there is actually a lot that they do not know about Plan of Salvation! And I am glad that I taught them that. And then it comes to Q&A session where they will ask me questions that their friends ask them. 

The questions go like this; 
Why do girls dress up in dress while guys dress up with tie to go to church? 
What do you dress when you go to a wedding? Why would you dress in your best looking clothes to go to a wedding? To show respect! (Now you will figure out why we dress in our best clothes to go church) To show respect to God. 
Why does our church disallow people to drink coffee? 
What is the difference between our church and other churches. We have a living prophet. How did the Word of Wisdom commandments came from? Through living prophet. Our church is the only church that receive latest revelation from God because we have a living prophet that holds the authority.
Why is our sacrament not in wine but in water? 
What is the difference again between our church and other churches. We have a living prophet. This is the church of God. The church of God will not change something just because someone do not like it or the church wants to do in a different way. The church only change because it receive revelation from God through living prophet. 

I bet you don't know why as well so I provided the answer that I gave it to them. Hope you know why now. I hope that I would have learn all of this when I was in my young man class. And then I concluded with what do you learn today? They were shouting, we learn a lot today! Haha. And 2 hours just passed away like a finger snap. 

Another thing, now that Elder Pratt is here in Butterworth. It's gonna be a lot more fun or in other words a lot more work will be going on. I served with Elder Pratt in Sibu and Sibu has changed a lot or in other word progress or become even more stronger. I definitely hope that we will be able to build an even stronger Butterworth branch. 

Another highlighted thing last week is when we were all in a less active place, and nenek(grandmother, we call her nenek because that what she wants us to call her) came to me and ask me if I could help her. I said, yeah, how can I help you. And then she pointed at the watermelon and ask me to cut it. It was the most hilarious thing that happen last week. 

Thats it for this week! And sorry for no pictures! xD 

Love all of you!
