Aioo, this week la!
So, a couple of things you might find interesting about KL: One, certain spots smell rather bad. Two, motos do what they want here. As in drive on sidewalks, weave between traffic, drive down the wrong side of the road, etc. You never want to cross the road in front of a moto. So that’s fun. Also, something about this mission in general is everybody is honest (if you’re overweight you’ll find out, etc.)
Now on to the weekly turn of events! (I’ll keep it shorter and sweeter probably this week).
On Monday we spent the entire day listening to music and deep cleaning the apartment because the Sister Training Leaders were doing a housing check. I actually managed to find a sarong underneath my wardrobe. I was super excited until we found out it was Sister Guzman’s later. But that’s ok. Maybe someday. 😛 So that was fun.
On Tuesday we had District meeting and a Correlation meeting with our Elders, which for those of you who don’t know that means that we met with our Districts (missionaries in our area), talked about how everyone was doing and got advice, and then afterwards we met with our Elders and talked about who was teaching which less actives so we weren’t doubling up or anything, and also so if we needed help we could get it. Then we met with G and S. We ended up splitting up and teaching each of them individually. Sister Romney taught G the importance of church, while I taught S the Plan of Salvation. It went really well! S unfortunately is stuck at home recovering from surgery so she can’t get to church, but G, even though he has one leg, can take a taxi so that’s nice. 🙂
Tuesday was also New Year’s Eve and the Sister Training Leaders flew in to do splits with us so we made fajitas!! They were delicious. 🙂 We made chapati for tortillas and Sister Romney is the chapati QUEEN!!! That’s alright ‘cuz I made some mean fajitas. It was a great way to welcome the new year. 🙂
On Wednesday we went on splits with the Sister Training Leader, but they did it in an AWESOME way where one of them went with us and one went with the Cheras sisters, which meant we didn’t have to double up on appointments which was GREAT!!! Things kept falling through, though, but thank goodness for backup plans so we still had a full day of service and less actives!
On Thursday we did planning and then got priesthood blessings which were wonderful. Heavenly Father truly loves us and looks after us and I am so grateful for that!!! 😀 He truly is aware of each and every one of us. And He loves each and every one of us so much.
On Friday we met with M who is a less active and is the mom of one of our investigators, U. We were able to have a great lesson with her daughter A who was baptized 5 years ago and we were able to teach her about the Holy Ghost which was fantastic.Then we meet with J, another Less Active who is pretty active now which we are so excited for!!! We were able to help her translate her testimony from Bahasa to English, because she wanted to bear it in English, and it was so sweet and strong! Later we met with A who is a recent convert and she threaded our eyebrows. It was painful. But my eyebrows look fantastic! So that’s fun. We tried to meet with another investigator but sadly he bailed on us.
On Saturday we were able to have President and Sister Mains come and give us interviews/go through our area books. That was fun! We were really worried because we’d planned some appointments because we didn’t know they were coming but Heavenly Father blessed us and we were able to get more appointments later that night! We were able to meet with several less actives and pass out two Book of Mormons!!
On Sunday it was church which is always fantastic!! 😀 We got to take the Sacrament, then afterwards went to a recent convert’s house, D, where we had delicious Indonesian soup and various chip-cracker things that I forget what they’re called but one of them was cuttlefish flavored and it was delicious.Then we brought P, V, and A to a lesson with U and A because they didn’t come to church, and it was great because they could translate into Tamil for us! I wish I spoke Tamil. And then we went to the A’s for dinner and were able to talk to them about missionary work, which was grand.
Well that about sums it up! I am so happy to be here in this wonderful place at this most wondrous time!!! 😀 I love you all!!
