Week 29

We've had an excellent week! I really love Elder Hanks, he is a great companion. He is succeeding in the language and in missionary work, and he's getting used to the area very quickly. We taught a really awesome guy who came to church and FHE last week, and he expressed his sincere desire to know which church is true and right for him. We're excited for him to find out. We were also able to do a couple different service projects this week, which were really awesome. The people in our branch are very friendly and supportive. For Thanksgiving, we taught two lessons, and then ate some Kampua Mee (I think that's how it's spelled), with a Sibu-missionary favorite fruitbowl. My companion also tried his first durian this week. We visited a couple families last night of less actives members we have never met, with the district president. Together, we think we can really help make a difference in their lives, and the way we want to help them is specifically through family history. It's weird doing the extra hour of studies every morning, but it's fun. We practice teaching the lessons mostly. Transfers are happening this week, and most the natives who speak Chinese are all being switched to Chinese elders. So it's exciting to see that the Chinese people are a real focus now. I've also had a chance to read some conference talks recently, which is good, since I didn't understand much of the last conference. Anyway, I'll send some pictures of the week. I love you all! -Elder Earl
