The Malaysian team is here in Bletchley! Elder Yeap (it's pronounced yep not yeep as some people have been calling him) has been out for quite a while and I could be "killing him". He goes home to Brunei on the east part of Malaysia in about 8 weeks! He's trying his best not to be "trunky", but he makes me want to go back to Malaysia because of all the good food I get reminded of. He used to be a sushi chef, so you probably have a good idea what I'll ask him to do for service. He was able to speak to one of the Chinese members in Mandarin, so we could be having a DA... Unfortunately we haven't found many Malaysian people around.
Elder Yeap is the new district leader and it's his first leadership calling. He was a bit nervous at first, because there's an ex-zone leader and ex-district leaders in our district. However, he's now settled in and the last district meeting we had went well! Elder Judy was nice enough to leave some papers about how to be district leader behind which he found useful.
N didn't show up to church yesterday, because she was in Luton with her ill grandma. She will be calling us today and when we next see her we will put her on baptismal date for early March. Antonio left for Italy last week and will be back on the 7th of March. One of the investigator who has many challenges are doing good with the goals. He's cutting down on smoking to 12 a day and he should be able to come to church for the first time this Sunday. B. came to church yesterday and the talks were about prayer. She still doesn't believe in praying in the name of Jesus Christ. She said she tried it for about a week and then went back to her old ways as she didn't receive any answer. We have been doing quite a bit of service for her and she hasn't been reading or praying like we asked her to. I think reading and going through this Ensign article - https://www.lds.org/ensign/2014/12/the-reality-of-christmas?lang=eng should help. She already read it, but I don't think she understands.
Anyway, I hope you're all doing well. Keep pressing forward with steadfastness and always pray! I know that Heavenly Father loves us and wants to help us on our journey back to him.
