Week 78

I am feeling a lot better now. I am excited for Elder Bodhaine because I heard a lot of good things about him! He is from California and I dont have a picture of him yet because there is virus in my camera and my hard drive and I need to get rid of them and I lost a lot of my pictures and videos but I will get you a picture of him next week. 

I met Elder Trudo and he forgot to bring the stuffs! I guess I need do a better job in reminding him. How is the other Elder Tan in Puchong. I guess I am a lot cooler right? Haha. Just kidding. 

I love to bring the youths here to McDonald. I have brought several of them to McDonald. Apparently a lot of them have never tried McDonald and that is why I brought them to McDonald so that they it will be an eye open experience for them. I told Evander and Pattrickson that if the missionaries ever bring you to McDonald, don't choose the same burger over again and again. Try different burger so that you can tell your friends that you have tried all the burgers in McDonald. Haha. 

Kenny and Juliza are progressing really fast but the only problem is that they have a really naught son aged 2 or so that would hit his parents when they are praying with their eye closed or singing before the lesson. I have this green laser and we told this kid that this laser will burn you and every time we pray, I would keep my eyes open just to make sure this kid doesn't hit his parents or else I would shoot the laser on the floor and he would start running around the room. Another funny story, we gave this kid a sour sweet. Right after he put it into his mouth, he was jumping excitedly, within seconds, he reached into his mouth to grab the sour sweet and throw it back out. It was soooooo funnny!! 

Last Wednesday, Elder Bodhaine and I brought Sylvester's family McDonald! Guess how much everything cost? It cost RM90+ but not a problem because they help us so much and it is a token of appreciation from us to their families. I have the pictures of 13 burgers, 9 fries and 9 drinks but it got deleted because of the virus. I might get the pictures from Elder Bodhaine next week.

Right now we are working really hard with the branch in reactivating efforts. We have a meeting yesterday on identifying who do we want to reactivate. It is going to be an effort between the members and missionaries. I am really excited. I always tell the missionaries and the members that reactivation starts now! Sometimes it is a little bit frustrated because some parties would not cooperate but I do know that there is always opposition in everything but the work will never fail. 

We are not just working but we are having tons of fun as well. I make each of the companionship to plan an activity on Preparation Day. Later today, we are going to prawn fishing!!! And we are planning to go back to the crocodile farm again this time with some live chickens that we are going to bring with us. Wooo. Stay tune. 

I heard mom is doing a really good job in giving referrals and dad also gave some referrals to the missionaries. I haven't have time to talk to Elder Trudo yet about Puchong branch because we are really busy with so many stuffs going on. I am proud of you mom and dad. 

I am going to Singapore again this Thursday for MLC. Sigh. I am sooo sick of travelling already.
