July 21, 2014

Well, it's that time again.  I don't know if I have that much to say.  This week has been pretty quick.  
We had zone conference on Wednesday and Thursday, so that was good.  We had the missionaries from Manado come down, and the ones in Malang came up, and the AP's came, so that was a lot of fun.  It was really the focus of the week, and now it's over, so we're headed to Malang tomorrow to Wednesday.  So that'll be an adventure, too.  
Zone conference was good; it was great to hear from President Donald.  He's a truly inspired leader of God.  He works so hard for us, it's really amazing.  The whole focus was to get us back into studying Preach My Gospel.  So we've got to focus on that.  To all you missionaries that are going to go on a mission, use Preach My Gospel, it'll help a lot.  
I guess I've mentioned our mission couple so I’ll tell you about them.  We have a mission couple here.  They are the Anderson's, and they are super cool.  They have been here 17 months, so they have until the 20th of August before they go home.  They have been in Surabaya their whole mission.  They're from Las Vegas, but Sister Anderson taught at BYU-I for a couple years before they came out here.  They are member support missionaries, which means they help with home teaching and visiting teaching and they take us to appointments that are super far away, and they just try to build relationships within the ward and provide any help they can.  It's a lot of fun to have them around.  
We did a service project at one of our members’ houses this past week, (not the one that there's a picture of...).  He's 80 years old, and when he was about 55 he took a 13 meter fall at the factory, and he's never been the same since.  He lives with his wife in a 3 meter x 4 meter room, and he is a hoarder.  That room was so full they were sleeping outside.  So we went and helped him clean out about half of his stuff, so we could put a bed in.  We were going to clean it all out, but he didn't want us to.  He was shy because there was just so much stuff and he didn't want everyone to see it.  So we got the bed in, and hopefully that'll make a difference, we're going to stop by tomorrow and see how things are going.  Hopefully we can continue to serve him.
I think that's about it.  Life is pretty much the same.
