Week 98

Hey family! 

I heard that there is Returned Missionary night thing in the church organized by Adeline? What is that and when is that happening? You didn't tell me anything about that. Hah. Whatever, I am always prepared in anything. 

I can't believe I am going back to school soon and it's going to be really busy when finals come around the corner. I guess you guys have my flight plan and I will reaching into KLIA 2 around 3 ish. 

Since when Puchong branch has couple missionaries? How often do they come to Puchong branch? I am way excited to return to my home branch to see what has change for the past 2 years. I hope that it should be better. 

I am taking bus to Singapore. Now thats what I get for complaining so much about flying into Singapore so often from Miri. Haha. I think I will be fine because I have done this so many times already. 

I have been in Johor Bahru branch for 9 weeks already and out of that 9 weeks, I have given talk in the 6 weeks including bearing my testimony on fast and testimony Sunday. I gave a mind blowing talk yesterday on enduring to the end. It was mind blowing because it was presented very very differently and I think a lot of them love what I talked about. A summary of the talk is human's doctrine versus God's doctrine. A lot of time, human like us tend to make our own doctrine without noticing it such as giving excuses like, "Elders, I know that I haven't been to the church but I always remember God." I slammed on that asking on which scriptures does it say that when an individual do not go to church remembers God? Now, that is an example of human doctrine. We need to always align ourselves to God's doctrine. Do not make your own doctrine and always refer back from the Bible or the Book of Mormon or Doctrine and Covenants or Pearl of Great Price because on the last day we will all be judged according to our work. 

I even talked about imagining on the judgement day where I will be standing below while God is sitting above me asking me what have I done with all my 20 years. Do I use my 20 years to repent continually or just being ignorant to the teaching? And I can imagine God asking all of us that questions, what have you done with your 60 years? your 50 years? I have given you those time to repent and what have you done with it. We will regret our decision and we will even cry at that time to be saved but all is too late. 

I also talked about the principle of enduring to the end where we endure till the end of our life or the end of our breath not just 2 months of enduring or 2 years of enduring or 20 years of enduring. Only those who endure to the end will receive eternal life. I even told them that my last advice as a missionary is to endure and you will see the blessings in your life. I have seen so many or too many church members who fall away or not enduring and have regretted for their decision and have suffer so much because of their decision of not enduring. I told them to set a goal to endure. 

I was reading and referring to scriptures when I was giving this talk. I got up and I was like, I want to use the shortest time to help each of you understand what I have learnt. Now get your Book of Mormon out and read with me. I felt the joy when I teach and I really really love teaching! Especially teaching the truth.

There is a cool dinosaur swimming park on KSL Shopping Mall in Johor Bahru and it cost RM50 to get in. We didn't pay to get in, my companion argue logically to get us in. 

I was sitting under this dinosaur, suddenly, water start coming out from the mouth. Luckily I manage to escape that or else I would be soaking wet. 

The entrance of the water theme park!
