Our Visit to Sister Eva and her family

We had a great experience as we visited Sister Eva and her family. 
They were celebrating  the Indian Holiday of Diwali/Deepavali.  Their married daughter and family  were visiting them.  Eva  had fixed a special meal for the family celebration, and saved some for us, so we were able to experience traditional Indian food. 
It was very delicious and was presented in a beautiful way.

Sister Eva and her children were baptized several years ago, but her husband is not a member.  He was very kind and friendly to us though, and participated in our gospel discussion.  I could feel that this is a very special family who cannot come to church because the mom works on Sundays and the sons go to school on Sundays.  I really don't like this rule the Sultan made that changed the Sabbath to Friday in Johor Bahru. 

I am so thankful for the opportunities that we have to go with the Elders to visit the families in our Branches who are not able to come to church,
but who love the gospel and the Book of Mormon.
These visits strengthen my testimony as I see the struggles that Saints here have to make to be members of the Church and yet how much they love the Lord and each other.
The Gospel is true in Malaysia.
