This week was pretty awesome! Transfers was a little crazy as always and the new area is obviously “new” to me, but I’ll get the hang of it. Elder Shirley is awesome. I think we’ll get along great. I don’t really remember how I was right after my training, but he’s probably a lot better than I was. I might even say he’s a better missionary than I am right now. I think I can learn a lot from him and I hope he can learn from me as well. We’ll definitely see miracles here in Bintulu. I know that each of our mission companions are our companions for a reason. Each new companion I have strengthens my testimony of this.
Our group is really small (I think around 7 to 10 members), but the few members we do have are really solid. Our vision for this transfer is to really help our group become super solid and to make church a spiritually uplifting experience. This transfer our branch could even become a branch! The members are willing to help us do missionary work. I’m really excited to serve in Bintulu with Elder Shirley. The people are really nice. There are many prepared people.
I’m really excited for this weekend. We get to watch general conference! I don’t know how it’s going to work because our church only has one television and most of the members only speak Malay…but I’m sure it’ll work out. I also had a huge faith building experience I will share with you later. I’m out of time.
I’ll tell you guys all about how it goes next week! Thanks for reading!
