Hi family!!! <3

Well not much has happened this week.. Except TRANSFERS!!!! I’m back in SINGAPORE!!! I looked at the transfer sheet and couldn't even believe it!! But! I’m in Bedok ward! And I LOVE IT! I also LOVE my companion so so much!!!!! Her name is Sister Hansen; she is from Arizona and is literally the girl version of Austin! We get along so well! I love her so much!!!!! We are having a blast!!! :) It was crazy sad to leave KL! But I’m so glad I was able to serve there! I LOVEEEEE them!! We were able to visit with M. though and that was AMAZING! She was soooo sweet! We were able to share a little of the Restoration with her and she is excited to learn more about what is so important to her daughter! I love her so much! I’m going to miss everyone like CRAZY! But I’m grateful for the people I was able to meet!!! I miss all the hijabs in KL, but! Singapore is AMAZING!!! It was so good to come back and see everyone!!! <3 I cried so hard on Sunday seeing everyone that I love so much!!!

I've been sick over the past few days, which has made it really hard to go out! BUT! We have been able to go through our area book and talk with our Elders to get to know our area! And I’m feeling better now! So we have a lot of great plans to work with the ward and just go out and BUILD IT UP!!!! <3 it's a little hard cause we are white washing (we are both brand new to the area) and it's kind of like we are opening; it was opened six weeks ago for sisters, but it kind of crumbled so it's going to be hard, but it's going to be ROCKIN! We are going to work with the members, see miracles, and just share Gods love with his children like CRAZY!!! I'm sorry i don’t have a lot
to say from this week! We have been able to visit with some less active and active members the past week! And we are really trying to meet with many potentials! But! We are looking forward to getting new investigators and really just hitting the ground running! I know that miracles happen every single day! The Lord is in every aspect of every one of our lives! He will always be there to comfort us! And his atonement can always change and help us to be better! I love you so much family!

 
Love,

Hi Family <3


How are you??? This week has been AWESOME!!! And really CRAZY! It went by so fast! I can't even believe it! We had a great week this last week! Full of ups and downs, but full of miracles!!! We had 8 member present lessons which is HUGE!!!!! The standard of excellence for our district is 7 MP Lessons! It was a miracle! We are able to do much more with 4 of us! We also went on exchanges with the STL's Sister B. and I went with Sister H. into PJ area! It was so nice to be back!!! And Sister T. and Sister C. stayed in KL with Sister L! It was so fun to be with Sister H. again! We talked about all of our good times and talked about how J, A, KL, S and everyone was doing! J. is going to be baptized in December! I really hope I’m here to see it!!! :) When we were there we visited a Hindu couple whose son passed away about 1 year ago from Dengue fever. They miss him so much; we taught them about the plan of Salvation! It was amazing! The father was a little hard, he is still very upset and bitter... but the mom was crying and said she wants to pray and ask God if this plan is true! I’m so excited for the PJ sisters to continue meeting with them! The lesson was just full of the spirit! :) Our investigator S. is struggling really badly, we can't meet with her for a few weeks, but please keep her in your prayers! It's very difficult to watch people struggle! And it's so hard to see these people who don’t have very much! Many of them we can't share the gospel with, but I know that with the Lords help, we can find those who are prepared to accept the gospel and bring them into light!


MIRACLE!!!! While we were on exchanges the other sisters met with our investigator T, she doesn't speak a lot of English, but we brought a member that was able to translate for us! And SHE just LOVED it! She wants to come to church to learn more and to be baptized! We are really excited to keep working with her! Thanks to V! :) We also had an Open house at our chapel on Saturday, it was really stressful!!!!! But it was AMAZING! Over 20 non-members came to the open house! It was really cool! We had a service project going on, a family history room, the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (which was our station), and lunch was provided! It was a really neat open house! Such a great place for the spirit to touch the hearts of everyone that came! :)


The elders in our branch are the zone leaders and there was an elder who had to go home for health reasons; the comp of the elder who had gone home is staying with them, so we decided to heart attack them...but with stars... (didn't want any violations of pg. 33 of the white handbook) and we had made them planners for this next transfer and ditched them at their door. It was one of the most fun heart attacks ever! We had so much fun doing it together! :) On Sunday we went to the M. families home for dinner with all the YSA in the district and a few of our investigators, B. and Is! It was a thanksgiving dinner with them! It was SOOO GOOD! It’s been so long since I’ve had solid American food like that! hahaha! It was wayyy nice! I def. miss mom and grandmas cooking a lot!!!! :)


Sister M. has a referral for us that we are meeting on Wednesday! We are SOOO excited! It was a miracle that she is meeting with us! Sister M. is so excited to have her learn about the gospel! We are really praying that we can help her! She’s a young mom from Poland and is an art dealer with her two kids and husband; she wants her family to be closer together! And Sister M. brought up the church and she accepted to learn about it!!!!! :) Miracles are happening left and right, and we are finding those people that are ready for this message! The Lords work is moving forward! I'm so grateful for the gospel! This past week I was thinking a lot about second chances, and the Atonement as we apply it in our lives by making repentance a pattern of our life, we are aloud second chances! Christ’s arms are continually opened to us! Sister M. said something that I thought was very profound! It's the fact that the marks on Christ’s Hands are not for him to remember the sacrifice he gave... but for US to remember! I pray that I can always remember my savior and what he has done for every one of us! And I pray that we can each take that to the children of God who are around us!

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!! Keep on keeping on <3

Love
Eternally,
