Week 73

Hi mom! 

I am going to Singapore on 5th February and also I will be seeing the KL Zone Leaders and I know them as well. Thank you for the Singapore Dollar. I think that is really a good talk and I really didn't know that you actually share the gospel with them. I was in the meeting when they were discussing about Elder Tan's father in Penang not wanting to be baptized but it is really good to know that he wants to be baptized now. I guess if we show a good example, it will eventually touch the heart of others. I really believe in being a good example because I have seen a lot of good example from other missionaries and also members in every area that I served in. 

I think your English has improve a lot but there is still lots of room for improvement. Haha. I know you can really do well mom. 

I really think the church has really educate and teach me a lot especially in commandments. I really do not know the consequence until I learn it in the church. I saw Elder Tan few weeks ago with Elder Chong, (the one from Ipoh) and I think that both of them are really doing good. 

This past week the Zone has been focusing a lot on getting members to go to lesson with the missionaries and yesterday reporting really show how all the missionaries work so hard to get members to go to lesson with them. I know that if the members go to the lesson with the missionaries, baptism and reactivation will increase. Mom, if you have time, you could go to appointment with Elder Broadhead and Elder Cranford. It is really a good experience. 

I personally feel knocking isn't as effective any more. And instead of knocking, I spend most of my time either with members, less actives or investigators for referrals. So far, all my investigators are referrals and I haven't knock any doors yet. Members also need to know that they are missionaries. We are full time missionaries but members are life time missionaries, period. President Thomas S Monson just said in his recent talk, "Now is the time for members and missionaries to come together, to work together, to labor in the Lord's vineyard to bring souls unto Him" That responsibility in spreading the gospel isn't the responsibility of the missionaries itself any more but it is the responsibility of members and missionaries. I truly believe this and this is why I am doing whatever I can to get the members on board to join us in this marvelous moment. 

We are doing missionary moment in sacrament meeting yesterday where missionaries are taking the lead in sharing missionary experience to ignite fire in every members to share the gospel with their friends. I started yesterday with my own experience and next we will be getting members because they are a lot more convincing than us. 

And the most awaiting moment is today where we will be having activity with all the missionaries because they work so hard for past few days and they do deserve to fun time together on P day. I just know that this work is so true and I am really hoping that everyone in Puchong branch are excited to engage in this marvelous work at this marvelous moment. 

Something that I learn from my companion which is really funny! You know how all the kids always run around in the sacrament hall? My companion got each of the kid and told them that he wants to play a game with them and the name of the game is called Stone. What you need to do is you need to sit on the floor with you hands covering your knee looking down and not move, not talk, not making any noises. And all of the kids did! They were sitting on the floor for few minutes and weren't moving at all.  It is soooo hilarious!
