The First Shall Be Last

No one saw that coming. Elder Li is moving to Sitiawan on Wednesday to finish his mission. I’m with Elder Lloyd again, and he is also finishing! I’m pretty sure I’ll be training next transfer, so Puchong is probably my last area but I can’t be sure. I would like to stay here until I’m finished, but we’ll see.

We had two new English class students attend, and the two students from last week returned! A member also attended to fellowship these people, we’re getting close to some new investigators. At English class, we learn to have a lot of fun answering questions. We love to make them think and figure it out themselves. From the few students we have, I feel that we can improve the class into a large attendance.

I conducted companion exchanges with Elder Forsyth this week. He sure impressed me! Almost all of the appointments canceled, and it rained really hard. We spent the day in the LRT going back and forth. We finished the day with 14 potential investigators. I think I learned more than he learned from me. When Elder Forsyth talks to people, he gets to know them really well. Most importantly, he understands their situation enough to apply the Gospel in their lives. This results in many more people with interest in the Gospel. I learned to love the people.

I conducted my first baptismal interview for Elder Bringhurst and Elder Forsyth. Despite how much I prepared, I wish I had prepared more. It must be terrifying for the investigator! She was shaking and crying during the interview even though I tried my best to comfort her. Situations are really tricky to handle, so I had to rely on the Spirit. It turned out alright, and they have a baptism on Saturday! They will have another baptism in 3 weeks, this branch is doing great!

I received a training from the Zone Leaders about being accountable for our work. When I report with my district, I will be a guide in helping them understand themselves how to improve. It has really helped me to improve as well. I’m surprised how much I learn from helping others.

Looking forward to another great week!
Love,
Elder Chin
