Apr 26 2015 - Last few weeks

Apr 12

Hey, I've definitely already made the decision that I would rather go to UBC than the schools in Saskatchewan. (Just double checking, I got accepted in to engineering for sure right :P not just a science program or something :P )

Cool stories quick,

So my last week in Mukah, me and Elder Shorts were contacting, and went to one house, at the house, there was fish sitting out side that had been swarmed by bees! The family was very distraught (as it was their food...) and they asked me and Elder Shorts to pray the bees away, so I prayed that the bees would leave, and I never heard about it again as I was transfered.

Within the hour that I prayed, they all left, and the family could have their fish. They started meeting with the Elders, and were just baptized!

So, cool miracle in my mission :)

Besides that, we watched 10 hours of conference in Malay :P

GO FLAMES! They need to beat the Canucks... #repeat 2004
Also, go Detroit, I hate Tampa :P

(They haven't been in the playoffs because they haven't existed since then :P ) Elder Slider (senior couple missionary) served part of his mission in Winnipeg, and he used to get to watch Hockey Night in Canada!

Jumpa Lagi!

GO FLAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My companions are good, Elder Ee has been living with me for two transfers... he's the chinese kid in the pics I've sent home... Elder Davie is from Australia, both just barely finished training... So I'm babysitting haha.
The area is huge, so we've done a lot of biking, and I'm way worried that we aren't able to cover everything

Hey, just checking, you accepted me to UBC correct?

How am I fairing in the NHL pool?

Apr 5, 2015 - New temple in Bangkok

Hey! I'm on if you're all up, intresting stats about the new temple in Bangkok


"members won't have to go to Manila or Hong Kong anymore.

It'll be about 1/8 the current cost of going to the temple.

Members in West Malayisa can take the train if they need to."

Elder Sessions got pretty sick, so we haven't been out as much, but we've still had some good work.

our investigator's Dad is currently not allowing her to be baptized, so that kinda sucks :/ ( the Dad is drunk every day, used to be a gangster... interesting guy)

I met a bunch of less actives in our area this week! That was really exciting, We've been going through the branch records, cuting all the names apart and re-sorting the record by community, so I took the Siol Kandis (one of the areas in our area...) section and with one of the youth went and found everyone (you have to use members because addresses don't really exist in Siol Kandis...)

We had some awesome investigators come to church :) things are going pretty well. We had a fast (Elders + various members) that V's Dad's heart would be softened so that she could get baptized, so hoping that all works out...
We are playing rugby today for p-day, a few of the youth from our branch are following also!
Miss you!
Jumpa Lagi!
