Howdy hey everybody! Another round of random transfers came and went (Because a new group of bules came in today. 14!) and when all the dust settled, Elder Sutadiyono and I are staying in Tangerang together. By the time we have another chance at transfers, we will have been companions for about 6.5 months. I'm totally cool with it because my son is awesome. I just feel bad he has to stay with his father for this long. Kasihan... (too bad)Tangerang's been really bipolar with the weather lately. Really really hot and sunny some days, and then pouring rain, which led to flooding, some other days. But it hasn't hindered the work! We met up with Mas Tixxand he's kinda the same. He knows it's all true, but he wants so bad to please everybody. Long story short, he'll be in Bogor for the next 2 Sundays. He quit drinking coffee and tea though. Score! Mas Txx came to church and learned about the Priesthood. He really enjoys coming to church to learn, but we asked if he's prayed to know if it's true. Aaaand he hadn't. Need some more time with him.
Fun story of the week, there was a service project dealio in Jakarta morning which included a free eye doctor exam and free glasses. Around 300 people showed up and made it a really fun event! We didn't know where to go after, (code for no appointments) so we searched for an investigator who never picks up her phone. We ended up finding her, her name is Ibu LM, she's Batak (from Medan) and has been reading the Kitab Mormon like crazy! We asked how far and she pulled it out and pointed to Moroni 7. She ended up receiving a baptismal commitment for the and wanted to come to church the next day. She's never been so we arranged to go with a member to go pick her up. We woke up at morning, hopped in the member's car at 6, got to her house at 7, and learned she couldn't come this week. But her little brother wanted to come. His name is Pak Safari (Name points!). We'll see if anything happens there.
