February 2, 2015

Sooooooo, I'm sorry that there's no pictures again this week...  2 in a row.  I'll get it next week.  I did charge the battery, but I loaned my SD card out to a friend, and he hasn't gotten it back to me.  We'll get there.  
This week was pretty good, although not much happened by way of exciting things.  We taught a bunch of lessons, so I guess that was exciting, but to me, not really to you.  Whenever I sit down to write this email to you, I always am amazed by how boring missionary work is from an overview perspective.  I could tell you about specific lessons, but that would be like, we taught this guy the restoration, and this guy the restoration and this guy the restoration, and this guy, we followed up about the restoration, and this guy we went over the baptismal interview questions, and this guy we taught the restoration.  I could teach the restoration in my sleep.  Honestly, I probably do.  Elder Martineau does (true story, he sleep teaches).  
We didn't do anything out of the ordinary, just walked around and rode angkots and invited people to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith, repentance, and enduring to the end.  We didn't do any baptizing or giving the Holy Ghost this week.  But we're trying.  Life is good as a missionary.
We have a transfer coming up tomorrow, which is exciting.  I'll be staying here, and my companion will move to Manado South (still the same house), and my new companion will be Elder T. Sinaga from Medan.  He's been a missionary for about 6 months.  And Elder Hetharua's companion will be Elder Campbell from America.  He's also been a missionary for about 6 months.  The mission couple, the Welch’s, are with their children right now, and they will leave for home on Wednesday, so that'll be a sad change, too. Things are exciting in Indonesia!
Thanks for all the support!

Love,  Elder Heiner
