This week went pretty well. We continue to see miracles! I love it here in Bintulu.
One of the biggest miracles we saw was on Sunday. On Saturday, we were trying to have interviews with two of our investigators L** and J**. We were planning on Skypeing Elder Lundahl-Wolford in Miri, but their computer had problems, so then we decided to do interviews on Sunday. Then things didn’t really work out on Sunday as well, so instead of Elder Lundahl-Wolford doing it, we had Elder Gara do it and our group leader, President Tan, translated for him. We also had their mother A** have her interview as well. Sadly, J** didn’t pass because he drank tea a couple days ago, but the other two (L** and A**) passed, we weren’t even planning on doing A**’s interview! If we had done their interviews with Elder Lundahl-Wolford, we wouldn’t have know A** was prepared!
So L** and A** should get baptized this Saturday!
Our investigators are kind of all falling through. Even the ones that we thought were golden. Sometimes you find someone. You have an awesome lesson and then they fall off the radar. Maybe we just didn’t follow up with them as well as we should have. We’ll work more on finding this week. Of course we’re trying to teach a lot too, but we’re making a bigger effort to talk with everyone.
I find it weird that during my mission I learn things at the beginning of my mission, but those things I learn never really “stick”. I feel like they teach you a lot of what you need to know during the MTC. Everything that we’re trained on is just repeating things that we’ve previously learned. I guess it all depends on the timing. That’s why taking notes is important, so we can look back on the notes. Also many times you think you learn a truth that you’ve never heard of, but it actually states it right in PMG. I guess that’s just how our minds work. We can know a lot of principles, but are we actually converted to the principle? That’s the real question.
This week is going to be awesome. This might be our last week together, so we’ll have to make it awesome! I’ll tell you all about it next week.
