Week 89

Hi all, 

I just got transferred to Johor Bahru to be with a missionary that just finish his training. I am becoming an English missionary in a Chinese branch. How interesting that is. I will probably be leaving this coming Thursday. When you receive the documents from BYUH, please send it to my house in JB along with the transcript. I will send you the address in JB as soon as I find out. I will be going down to Singapore for the US Visa because thats what President wants me to do. My passport is so cool! I am planning on renewing my IC too.

We have this really crazy cool experience yesterday. I couldn't remember if I ever told you this but remember the 14 year old girl who has a picture of Christ on her wall? We went to her place yesterday but her parents weren't home but are planting corn in a farm around the house. We couldn't enter the house because there is no male 16 years old and above so we were thinking of helping her parents to plant corn and we walked with her to the farm which is really close by. She explained to her parents that we couldn't enter the house unless there is an adult in the house. And her parents decided to not plant the corn but to walk home with us. So we started watching Finding Faith in Christ for 16 minutes because that video is like 29 minutes long. We were translating and explaining to them what Jesus Christ is doing on earth that include serving others, healing the sick and etc. And we taught them how to pray and Elder Bodhaine started praying and then I started praying and then Nisha the 14 year old girl started praying. Take note that this is the first time she pray and she said the most sincere prayer ever. She started thanking Heavenly Father for sending Elder Bodhaine and I to teach them and there is a short silence and she started crying. While crying, she prayed that her parent would accept Heavenly Father. THE SPIRIT WAS SO STRONG..SO STRONG THAT her parent started crying too!! I love what I felt in that house and I definitely wish and hope I could feel that all the time. It was a feeling of great peace and happiness. How can I deny it after having receive so much witness? I couldn't do that. I couldn't deny what I have felt and seen and I definitely know that this church is true. This is just like another favourite scripture of mine in D&C 6:22-24

22 Verily, verily, I say unto you, if you desire a further witness, cast your mind upon the night that you cried unto me in your heart, that you might know concerning the truth of these things.

 23 Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from God?

 24 And now, behold, you have received a witness; for if I have told you things which no man knoweth have you not received a witness?

Many of the people I have met said, if I see an angel or God, I will know that the church is true. Apparently, God doesn't work that way. We are given an ability to seek the truth and one of it is to ask through prayer. Ask and it shall be given. It is as simple as asking and it will be given. 

That was really cool and I just hope that Nisha would continue to progress. This morning, I received a call from a Sister Paula, a less active member. She was crying in the phone telling me that her husband had just passed away this morning. It was scary because I have never receive any call like that in my life before and I never want to. So, we hurried to the hospital and were told that the husband were coughing and started vomiting blood out and so the family sent him to the hospital. On the way to the hospital, he was found dead. So tonight we will have a sembahyang in her place. I have never been to any funeral on my mission. Sister Paula is definitely one of my favourite member because she is always willing to learn even though she is less active. I just love her so much. 

Keep me updated of everything. Love you all!
