HI FAMILY!!!!

How are you??? :) WOW! This week was like a blur! Went by so fast!!! First off... we have a sister in our ward... Sister L. who follows us to several of our lessons and helps us so much! So we heart attacked her with the Elders this week! It was the best! Teaching elders how to heart attack is one of my fav. things! They just never really know what to do with themselves! But! It was really cool to see how much that meant to her! Showing our love in such a small way really touched her heart! :) We have decided to work with our Elders in really striving to serve our branch members and helping them understand we love them! We are really excited to see how it works! :) Our investigators S. and T. are on date!!!!! October 18!!!!! :) They are really amazing! And have such strong desires to be a part of this church and to come closer to Christ! They are just eager to learn more and more! :) M, who is an awesome member/RC in our branch! She is the BEST!!!! She follows us to many lessons and treats us so well!!!! :) We had an amazing meeting with her on Wednesday before we left for MLC, and we just were able to help her understand what it means to be a daughter of God. There is so much comfort given in the fact that is who we are! We are children of a LOVING heavenly Father! He knows us and is willing to help us! She is the best! And such a strong person! We love her!

We flew to Singapore that night for MLC where we had the special guests of Elder Funk (quorum of the 70) and Elder Allen (supervisor of missionary work). They gave us training at MLC and it was AMAZING!!!!!!! I have never in my life felt so humbled and spiritually uplifted at the same time!!! Elder Funk wrote on the board in the high council room (where we usually have MLC) "the Singapore mission is..." and we had to list several things! SO! We started to list many things that we strive to be as part of our Singapore Mission Vision... Elder Allen took over and helped us see that this is where we WANT to be... then he helped us see the reality of where we are now.... as we hit the reality of where we are as a mission, Elder Allen than gave us a training on many different things we can do as leaders to help us individually... And to help our missionaries as well! It was really cool!!! He emphasized a lot on watching "the district" videos and really studying those! So as a household we have been watching a lot more of those! :) It’s been really good! Something I really took from this training was understanding people... if you understand someone, you will love them! You will have compassion and charity for them! Because charity is something I am really striving to focus on, I felt this is something I could really work on! Trying to understand people more! It was just amazing! He really touched on going back to the basics of what we have! We have been given the tools to be successful in this work! We just have to USE them!!!! :)

We got back to KL and went on exchanges with the Sisters in KL branch! I went with Sister B. from Germany! I love her! She is the cutest!!! We had a really good day! Met with a family from Pakistan! They are soooo sweet! And met with one of their LA and her daughter who is an invest. And they were the sweetest! This little girl who was ten was such a sweetheart! She has such a love for the gospel! And was so intelligent! We asked her how God has blessed her for keeping his commandments and she told us how much he has blessed her, and how she wants to be a good girl! It was adorable!!! The exchange was awesome! :)

That night I got really, really sick! And wasn't able to go to church; I was really upset about that! BUT! We had several invest. come to church! A. and K. are progressing SOOO well! They are just doing AMAZING! I’m so happy for them! J. is doing well also! She has been traveling around a lot! But looked for the church where she was traveling! So! We have just been so blessed! We are meeting with a potential invest. tomorrow! And have many plans to find new investigators this week! SO! Things are going very, very well!!!! I’m really excited to just keep on keeping on!!!!!

I love you so much family!!!!!! I pray for you always!!!!! Keep on keeping on!!!

Love,
Eternally
