Week 86

Dear all,

MLC is this coming Thursday and that also mean that we will be leaving to Singapore on Labor Day. 

Last week was pretty crazy because a bunch of appointments fell through but we are still doing well. I am planning to switch focus in helping the branch getting home teaching established and getting all callings filled up. I have a heart to heart talk with the branch president through texting. I feel terribly sorry for him and wanted to help him as much as I can. I have express assistance to help get both this things done before the deadline which is in 2 more weeks or so. The plan that I have is to teach the importance of calling to every members and recent converts and discuss with the elders quorum president on establishing home teaching. If both of this are firmly established, we wont have to worry so much about people going less actives anymore because the members will be able to magnify their callings. 

We also had a baptism for Kenny and Juliza! It was the stressful baptismal program I ever had in my entire mission. Less than 5 members came from my branch. 90 - 95% investigators for branch 1 came and maybe 5 or so members from branch 1. Where are all the members? Where are all the supports? Bro Sylvester who was suppose to baptise Kenny and Juliza came late because his tire popped and he has to take a bus. It wasn't his fault. When I saw him, all he could say is, Elders, I am having a bad week, I dreamt that yesterday I'd been drinking alcohols. I felt terribly sorry for all that he has to go through. 

This year General Conference has been really inspiring. I love the priesthood session. I love how I am being reminded constantly about my duties. I love how inspired each leaders are. I love every messages that were presented. I hope each of you love the general conference as well. It definitely sound that the second coming is near. In other words, we need to prepare more. 

There is a bunch of things that I need to do when I come back that I just wanted to remind you guys, which included renewing my IC and passport. I am getting a temple recommend interview this Thursday with President Mains. I am excited to do the temple work for my ancestors. Please continue to gather more information so that it would be a lot easier later. Dont procrastinate please. 

Love you guys! 
Elder Tan

Kenny and Juliza

From monitor lizard to shark meat, I think we are improving. 

I can't believe a member actually FFK when we offer to help her. Haha

Planters ward on my feet. Don't worry about it. The mission has the best medical service and Sister Mains is aware of my current situation and I am also applying medicine on it. 

This was long time ago, its pretty cool huh?

Elder Wanner on the right and Elder Wadsworth on the back. There are really funny Chinese elders. They might even serve in Puchong branch someday. 

We were presenting our zone council. Haha. 

One of the p day, we played futsal with all these kids. They are really good though.
