Week 50

The miracle that I share a week ago, the result of all the hardwork that we have all this time all disappear(they either don't want us to visit them or they got antied). I have been feeling super discouraging that whole week not knowing what to do and decided I am just gonna finish reading my Book of Mormon to get all the negative thoughts out of my mind and start all over again.
On the happier side, remember the 2 youths that I challenged them to finish Book of Mormon in 2 weeks? They finished it in 2 weeks! Frankly speaking, I am so proud of them with the things that they had done. The bad new is that I haven't finish it yet because the only available time that I have is only in morning and night and most of the night, I would be super exhausted. Anyway, I will be able to finish it this week. I only have Mormon and Moroni to go and I will finish reading Book of Mormon 3 times!! The good news is that Book of Mormon is now available in Bahasa Malaysia which arrive yesterday.
Anyway, I definitely have a lot of fun in Singapore and now that I am back to Butterworth again. I need to focus on laying a firm foundation for the next batch of missionaries that will come in. I have learn to look from an eternal perspective and not being selfish, even though I couldn't handle it, at least all the information are laid out for the future missionaries to be able to continue what we were doing. At first, I thought Sibu was the hardest area I have ever been. Well, Sibu is really hard but Butterworth is a lot harder. I have also learn that when afflictions and trials are put ahead us, it is to stir remembrance to Heavenly Father and to rely on him more. I guess I will have to understand even deeper on how to rely on Heavenly Father more and to be able understand more about Jesus Christ's atonement. 

I am so proud of the young men in Puchong branch that are willing to sacrifice their 2 years time to be the Lord's instrument. It is not going to be easy but it is definitely gonna worth it. You future missionaries that will serve soon, remember that this 2 year is a preparation time to help prepare you to become a leader in the church. A stake will soon be formed in Malaysia and Malaysia continue to need more and more worthy and able leaders to help gather the sheep. I am so excited for the day to come that there will a stake in Malaysia. 

A week ago, while helping one of the non member clean up her area. I was stung by (no idea what insect) on my ear. It starts to become swollen on my ear when we were in our appointment. My body began to itch and some part of my body became to swell including my face. I didn't know that I was allergy to this unknown insect. It was terrible because it's getting worse until the other elders began to offer me a blessing. After the blessing, some of the swelling part of my hand began to disappear but there are still some. Until a member came and pick me up to the clinic to get an injection. It was really embarrassing to have an injection on the upper part of my butt. Dang it. After that, I went home and started to fell asleep super fast. And the second day, all the swelling disappear which I am grateful for. See. A lot of trials and afflictions but I still believe that it is all for the benefit of myself to help me grow. When a human is part in hard condition, there is where he started to grow faster. 

I am really thankful for the all the knowledge that I have gained and will continue to gain. I love reading from books because there is where I gain my knowledge. You would never expect that I would say that I love reading but I really do. It all started when I have no access to computer as much as I used to do where I have no things to do, I would grab a book and start reading. I definitely love spending time outside of the house to meet new people and talk to people knowing what they think. 

I am hoping to see more miracles happening this coming week. I am hoping to be able to learn to rely more and more in Heavenly Father. I do hope the same thing in my family to be able to rely more on Heavenly Father. I love you all and will continue to pray for each one of you.
