We had another senior conference on Wed., Thurs. and Friday of last week. We always look forward to them. We have to go back to Singapore every 3 months to get our visas chopped, and all seniors are on the same schedule, so we always have a conference while we are there. We always get spiritually uplifted and feel like we can come back to KK and carry on. We just love the other senior couples and have lots of fun while we are there.
We got back from Senior conference on Friday night and had to jump right into district conference on Saturday and Sunday. We had the Lee's who are serving in the Sandakan branch stay with us Friday and Saturday nights.
The branch in Tawau and the branch in Sandakan have to take a bus to come to district conference. It is a 6 hour bus ride one way from Sandakan and, hold on to your hats, an 11 hour bus ride one way from Tawau. Yet each branch had around 35 people who made the arduous trip. What dedication and sacrifice for these people, in their time and in their money. I've heard people complain about having to take a 20 minute drive from Roy in their nice air conditioned car to the tabernacle to attend stake conference. We are so spoiled. We had a GA, Elder Watson of the 70, come from Hong Kong. He really related well to the Malaysian members. They were so excited to have him come.
Please be grateful for all you have. We all have so much and just take it for granted and don't realize what a treasure we have been given. But, where much is given much is expected. I have been given so much so there is certainly a lot I need to do and say to even start to make a small dent in the debt I owe. We love you all. Keep them emails coming.
