selamat pagi (good morning)! assalamwailekum! thank you for the emails this week. they were good. it's good to hear that everyone is doing well. today and tomorrow is zone conference here, so we've got all the missionaries from sabah staying in our house today and tomorrow. i'm way pumped, because right after this, we're going to go play futsol as our zone activity. i'm sure that we all remember how talented i am at soccer... the last time i think i was on a soccer field was when i was walking off with a shattered, bloody face. i'm hoping for some better luck today... (but lets also remember that i had two goals in that game!)
this week is, once again, pretty crazy what with zone conference and all. but thus far it's been really good. we're on pace to have our best week of teaching yet (as far as numbers go), even with the two days not being able to have any appointments. we went on splits yesterday with some prospective missionaries and had a lot of fantastic lessons.
we also had a couple baptisms, and one was for a future Melchizedek priesthood holder! the branch here is really hurting for priesthood.
so in answer to your questions:
1. (Is Elder Palfreyman working in the office or were your visa runs at the same time?) yes, elder palfreyman has been in the office for quite awhile now. almost 4 months i think... maybe not quite that long. he's been a really good office elder, but rumor has it that he's leaving soon. i'm not sure what the exact responsibilities of an office elder are, but they have a lot to do, especially lately because the office couple is going home soon, so they've been having to learn how to do all the things that the couple does.
2. (Can you check to see if your companions parents received our email?) yes, i can.
sorry, i don't really have all that much to say this week. i'm still alive, busy, and loving the work. tell everyone that i send my love!
