Hey guys. This week was the beginning of Gawai for us in Malaysia. It's next month, but they're starting to have parties this month before Gawai actually hits.
So as far as my week goes, we started out by playing ping pong with our zone at the church on Monday. That night we went to go see a family that I haven't been to for a while. The youth usually comes to church, but the mother hasn't been much, so I thought it'd be nice to visit them. Turns out their daughter was sick, and the mom wanted us to come over anyway to bless her.
Then on Wednesday we had a huge birthday party at the church for a member's bday.  On Thursday, we had another bday party for another member in the afternoon, and then the Gawai party on Thursday night. Turns out that Brother Pulver, one of the MTC teachers (not mine but Elder Ormsby's teacher) came to visit Bintulu and the rest of his areas. He picked the best time to come, Gawai!
Friday we cleaned up the church, cuz it was pretty messy after the Gawai party. Then that night we went to see Bujang's family.  At the end of the lesson, I asked who was good at the guitar, and Bujang's son Ronald, played I am a child of God as we sang. It was a fun little experience for us. :)
On Saturday, I went to the Salleh's and just had a good conversation with them about missionary work and the importance of finding your own testimonies. 
Also we started making a map for the area, because it'd be nice for new elders to be able to see who lives where on a nice clean map. That night we taught our younger recent converts for a little while.
Sunday night we met another less active family we had never met before. They've come to church for the last 2 weeks, and when we went, we found that some of them are not baptized, so we might be able to work with their family some more. There's a lot of potential in that family.  If we can get them all to come, we could have at least 10 more members come to church. That would be really awesome.

Anyway, that's been my week. :) Love you guys. Enjoy life, okay? :)
