Week 70

Hey family! 

Guess what! I am planning on going to BYU-H. I am so sorry for changing my decision again and again. It all happen when I was having a personal study in the morning. I found 3 magazines in the house that has interesting topics so I decided to read. I didn't know that all the 3 magazines are about marriage. I guess the only reason why I am really scare of going to BYU-H is the pressure of getting married. Returned missionaries are encouraged to get married as soon as possible right after their mission. And that is the fear that I have for going to BYU-H but anyway, I have this really strong impression to go to BYU-H and I was actually doubting if I should ever go back and I flip to the next page of the magazine. And there is an article that talks about trusting in the lord and a scripture verses on it which read like this;

5. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thineown understanding.

6. In all thy ways, acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  

Proverbs 3: 5-6

At this point, I will take the Lord's promise and put my full trust in him. I don't know if I will ever become a lawyer but if being a lawyer isn't His will for me I guess I will be what He knows what is best for me. Alright alright, I think you might be thinking  that I want to get married. Haha! Again, if it is His will, I will do it. I will be working on my application to BYUH and I might need some help on that.  

I am going to Singapore this Wednesday to get my PACKAGE! Its going to be New Year package instead of Christmas package. We will come back on Wednesday only. 

Miri Zone has been doing really good with a lot of increase on appointments this week especially Elder Schuetz and me. We have been visiting a lot of less actives with members. We brought 2 Young Men with us to go teach and we brought them to McDonald few days ago to encourage them to go out more with us. They have been following us 3 days in a row for few hours. Things that I learned from Elder Schuetz is to always bring members to appointment and I really like that idea. And less actives seems to be more receptive when there is a member with us. 

Raining is really common here in Miri. It  rains like every single day and some of the night we came back home really wet. The worst rain was last night where it rain really hard with mists in the rain. So we stopped and waited because it's not safe to ride our bikes at that time. 

Something that I really love is having appointment from afternoon all the way to night time in Sarawak. I guess this is what my companion say that I am really good at in getting appointments.
Try to take a guess what is my appointment like? We will get out of the house at 1pm / 1:30pm and all the way to 9pm9:30pm

It's a new year and there should a new year resolution. My new year resolution is to work really hard for my last 6 months of my mission and then spend my time with my family before I go to BYUH. 

Recently there is a stalker that keep tailing the two sister missionaries in Miri. So we set up a trap to confront this stalker few days ago and apparently he wasn't there. We will try few more nights to make sure that we really catch this stalker and hand him to the police if we have to. 

I am excited for Chinese New Year! I am excited for Singapore! I am excited to come back home soon!
