Hey guys this week was great! It was actually Chinese New Year, and you would think that is a great time to meet people, but just like any other holiday nobody is home. We didn't get to meet a ton of people this week but there was a couple parties here and there from members that aren't Chinese (regardless of whether you are Chinese or not you still celebrate it no matter what).
So anyway we are still working with our investigators here S and St. They are so close to their baptism. If we weren't going to Singapore this week then we might have them baptized this coming Saturday. They are way way cool. They have a very interesting history. One of them being a caterer in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, you name it.
So anyway this week Elder Beliang and I have started the Beverly Hills Project. Essentially what Beverly Hill is (here in Sabah) is a set of 104 flats that have 84 doors each flat. So there is more than 8000 doors to knock, and we have so far knocked on 250 doors and have gotten 7 potential investigators from it. So we are just going to do our best in following up and just keep building up our teaching pool until it explodes. This is only a small portion of our work though. Members obviously will always make the best work, as we work with them, make friendships with them and receive referrals from them. 9 times out of 10 referrals usually end up being the investigator that stays in the church far longer. But we see lots of promising stuff in just knocking too, so we will continue to do that every now and then. I'm also going to categorize each door based on whether they are Chinese for the Chinese sisters to knock if they want because Chinese people do not like talking to us anyway unless its in Chinese. Every door that has opened that has been Christian has accepted for us to come back. That's a pretty stunning percentage so far. Annndd yuup so this Wednesday I go to Singapore and hopefully coming back Friday. Each time I go to Singapore my passport gets jankier and jankier, So I never know for certain whether they'll let me come back. :P
So maybe next week, see you in KK or in Singapore. Still not sure yet. haha
