Hello just an update on my week!!!!
This week was pretty crazy! We had MLC and Zone Conference and it could be pretty stressful because we had to make sure all the zone conferences went smoothly, but for the Jawa Tengah and Jawa Timor ones, we had to do so from afar in Jakarta> But everything went great and it was really a great experience to be with Elder Funk and learn from him. Drew, He said he remembered you and how kind it was for you to go and help the Cambodian Saints last summer.
One highlight of the week was - Brother K was baptized! Sorry there's only one picture... but Elder Sutadi baptized him. He is so great! So this is the one where his son was baptized two weeks ago. Sadly the wife is not ready yet. She could use all your prayers. It was such a great day though. Prana gave a great testimony and we had quite a few investigators there. What's really cool is that we have an investigator and his girlfriend(a member) came up and whispered, "hey J wants to be baptized." and I was like "Whaaa...?" When P and H were baptized, he felt the Spirit and decided that he wanted to make that commitment as well. So that's pretty cool! Hopefully he can prepare to be baptized in a coulpe weeks or so. He's a stud. We also have another young man - from the island of Nias. He is great and is just really prepared to receive the restored gospel! We're excited for him. Just recently, the Lord has been really blessing us to see the fruits of our labors, but there are also just so many other people out there that need this gospel!
We also went to the ward activity on Friday - so fun!! We had a lot of members and investigators there. We went down to a garden thingy place and just had a great time. It was very enjoyable to rest a little and just enjoy time with the members and investigators there!
Can I just say, I love Christmas so much!! The #LighttheWorld campaign is so awesome!! I got to teach yesterday at church about Service and man it just made me all the more love the Savior Jesus Christ and follow His example of lighting the world through service!!! I wish everyone would discover the joy in serving others - the world would truly become a place full of light and happiness!! The Christmas Spirit is so amazing - even in Indonesia where Christmas is barely celebrated at all (and with no snow- I miss snow so much haha). But you can really just feel the love of Christ in this wonderful season. I hope that everyone can feel that great love and Spirit of Christ this season. I hope that you all find a way everyday to serve someone else. Go check the "Light the World" movement - I know it is inspired of God through His living Prophet and Apostles.
I know that Jesus Christ truly lives. He was born in Bethlehem all those years ago and he still lives today. This is a time of year to always remember Him. Please help bring His light to others today, this week, this month!!
I love you all so much!
