Salamat Pagi from Borneo. We hope and pray you are all doing "baguse" (great) as they say here in Borneo. I thought I would try to impress you with my Bahasa Malay. Are you impressed? Well don't be because I know very little Bahasa but I keep trying to learn a word a day. So far I think I've learned um like 10 words. I'll keep working though. The Elders here are very helpful but all the locals want you to speak English so they can learn and practice their English.
We made one trip into the jungle last week. It wasn't too far out. It was only about 1 1/2 hrs out of KK. It was by far the roughest, toughest, bounciest, worst road I have ever been on. It was like a Disneyland ride. I just closed my eyes and prayed. We had to cross this river three times:
About another 30 minutes jolting and bumping and grinding along we came to this fine stretch of road:
The next day after getting back from Tiku we put together the school kits and the hygiene kits for the three Indonesian schools we are helping. Both branches combined for a joint Fellowship Night and they really dove right in and helped us so much. There is no way we could have done 300 hygiene and 300 school kits by ourselves. The members LOVED it.
It was a very successful activity. We love the branch members for all the support they so willingly give. They love to serve. So again, I closed my eyes and prayed for the branches and all the wonderful people in KK.
Thank you all for your comments. It's good to know someone is reading the blog. I hope it gives you a little insight into what it is we are actually doing out here. If you ever have any questions, please let us know. We will try to answer you. We love staying busy and we love serving in Malaysia. It truly is the "Greatest Mission on Earth".
