It's Feeling More Like Christmas Here In Malaysia

It isn't easy to get in the Christmas Spirit when you are living in an Islamic Country.  The few decorations that they do have are very secular.  We are trying very hard to bring the Christmas Spirit into the lives of the members of our two branches and also the Elders. 

This Santa was at the place where we stop for lunch when we have
District Meeting in Masai.   Ho Ho Ho  Merry Christmas!!! 

Elder Hadley & Elder Read set up the Christmas in the Masai Branch. 
Great Job!!

President Tee, the Branch President of the JB Branch organized a day of carroling with the missionaries, he and his wife and two other sisters.  We had a wonderful day.  We traveled quite a distance between places, and survived a torrential rainstorm, but our spirits were so happy as we were able to share some of the true Spirit of Christmas with many people.  You will see from all of the smiles that it was a great day and the families enjoyed us sharing our Spirit with them.  You would be amazed at the beautiful sound that comes out of these few people.

This family are friends of Sister Eunice, 
not members, but they sure enjoyed our singing and even joined in.

Liu Wei is an investigator.  Her smile always makes my day!
We visited her at her work and got in out of the rain for a while.


Alex Ng is a less active member who was so happy to see us
and joined in on the caroling.

Smile everyone!  You are on camera

Pia is a sweet investigator.  We visited her at work and sang to her and the other customers as they ate their dinner.

The Kwan family live about 45 minutes away from church,
so they are not able to come very often.  Transportation is definitely a problem here.

I am so grateful that we are able to support the branch members and leaders here in Malaysia.  It is certainly a growing experience for us and one that we will remember always.
