The time really is flying by now and I spend a lot of sleeping time thinking of things that need to be done before we go and sometimes it is just so overwhelming. I don't know if we'll be able to finish everything on our "Things To Do" list, but we will try. The Allen's will inherit a lot of work, so they will hit the ground running.
This week we took a trip on the North Borneo Railway. It was on a very old steam engine train. There were actually workers whose job it was to keep the furnace filled with the chopped wood to make the steam to make the wheels on the train go round and round. We went with Elder and Sister Crookston who came over from Sandakan.
On the 8th, 9th and 10th we attended the East Malaysia Young Single Adult Convention at the Borneo Paradise Beach Hotel. There were about 38 YSA's and about 18 adults. We had a terrificly good time.
Our last full week here is really jam packed all ready! The Allen's will arrive on Wendesday or Thursday and I have so much to do to get everything ready for them. We are really starting to get more and more anxious every day now and we are also getting a little sadder every day that we will soon be leaving. Such bittersweet feelings.
