Week 43

This week was wonderful! Elder Broadhead and I have contemplated together on what we want to focus on as a companionship a lot this week, and together we've set an area vision (as companionships should always do). Create things spiritually before physically), where we want to focus on only teaching the prepared and progressing. We want to focus on finding more, especially through the branch, and in order to build the branch, we want to focus on home teaching. It should be a fun few weeks. On Saturday, we had a fun day of attending Sports Saturday (a branch 2 thing; we were only there because of some weird exchanges that ended there), where we played a very intense game of keep-away. Then we taught a lesson to a wonderful investigator, followed by English class. I'm no professional English teacher, that's for sure. We then went bowling with the branch! Unfortunately, due to flat tires, we left our bikes at the church, and the naughty children from the other branches then gave us two more flat tires the next morning. :) We had three investigators at Sacrament meeting, including one in Sibu Jaya. It was really good to see them there. We also had church with no air-con or lights yesterday, since the power went out in the building. And then we had the privilege of teaching both second and third hour. We had a good lesson this week with a less active family, where we all shared our favorite scriptures together. One of them shared a scripture I'd read with him just a few weeks earlier, and they came to church this Sunday, including one who hadn't been in years. As far as food is concerned, we've gotten a bit sick of the same restaurants all the time, so we went to a bunch of random cafes this week. They were good, though my companion did get sick. Tee hee. The Beuses, our senior couple, found some new investigators that we watched the Restoration video with this week. It's a very spirit-filled movie, and every time I watch it, the Spirit witnesses just how true this gospel is. Overall, it's been a good week, with a lot more good to come. Wo ai nimen! -Elder Tupai (the name all the Ibans know me as. It means "Elder Squirrel".)
