I don't ever have to help with sacrament in Kuching, there are always enough people (if they don't have enough youth normally other members bless/pass the sacrament instead of elders)
I had to give an "emergency talk" yesterday, because the brother who was supposed to give the talk didn't come... somehow I always get picked for talks... in all my branches. I've given 3 talks here already... my companion (he says he gave 1) hasn't given any since I've been here. I don't play piano very often, I always try to make sure members play, one of the youth can play a few hymns from the hymn book, and there is an RM who can play some also, and if they can't play it they just play simplified hymns.
I might go to Dairy Queen in Singapore!!! Also, I'll be in Singapore for my 6 months left day... (Feb.26th)
OH YA! I was actually sick this week, like not what Mom thinks sick is, like I was actually sick... got a fever up to 39.3 degrees... that was rough, but I'm all good!
We have some new investigators from some part member families, things are going pretty good!
Barbequing at Christmas!

More Cultural Center...
Me with an old Bidayuh guy who works at the center
Japanese skulls kept over a fire in an "Iban longhouse" (The Iban (ancient) belief is that the soul is kept in the skull of a person, so when the Japanese invaded Sarawak, the Iban's chopped off their heads and kept their skulls burning over a fire to continually burn their souls.)
(still cultural center) Iban drums
Me wearing a Malay thing...
Us digging the grave for the newly departed former branch president.... with a log in the middle of it
Goats I saw while on splits with Elder Harr in Batu Kawah, that was cool 'cause I've never seen pet goats in Kuching, like imagine you drove around MacEwan and saw goats... same concept

I was reading some of your emails and Luke says that you were visiting people in the hospital because you were really sick and already there. No wonder I worry!
hahahahahaha that's so funny, no, we don't go to the government hospitals in the event of an emergency, we always go to private clinics because Malaysian hospitals are sketch. (I've never needed to go to a hospital on my mission)Did you get your new suit? Is there anything you need?
got a new suit, is there a way you could ship a peter's milk shake here and timbits?
