This wee was a fun week! We met with some more nice investigators and got a couple more people committed for baptism in the upcoming weeks. The work in Tangerang has been picking up and it is cool to see and be a part of it.
Christmas was awesome, mostly because I got to Skype my awesome family! It was great to see them and hear their voices. Isabelle sounds likes a teenager and Luke sounds like a bear haha. All of my siblings are getting older and changing, well except for Sabrina, she is pretty much the same I think haha. We ended our Skype call with a prayer and it was the first family prayer I have had in a long time and it was really nice. I have such an awesome family and I love them so much!
Well after we Skyped we took a taxi to the mission office in Jakarta and had a little Christmas party with all the missionaries in Jawa Barat, the mission couple's, and the mission president and his wife. We ate a lot of really good food and played some games. All-in-all Christmas day was great, except that there was no snow again this year.
Yesterday in Church Brother Pri and Sister Veronica got confirmed to be members and received the Holy Ghost. That is always a spiritual experience.
Yesterday we were out and about and we found a person who learned with missionaries a few years ago and I got her number so we can visit her again, that was pretty cool. Then later we met a man who recognized us and talked to us, turns out he is already a member and was baptized a long time ago in another city far away, but then moved and didn't know there was a church here for a long time. So we reconnected to him and met his non-member wife. We invited them to the New Year's party and to church, hopefully we can meet again with them soon!
Today we are going to go ice skating at one of the malls here and then we might have Carl's Jr for lunch if we feel crazy enough.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
