Singapore! Did it all this time! 
-Little India (ate lunch and got a special dress for a little special someone) 
-Singapore Flyer (giant Ferris Wheel - we got our own car! ) 
-Beach (haven't been to one of those in a while :))
-Chinatown (ate some of the hottest food in my life, real Chinese food I guess :) just about died.)

Then later that day after zone conference we did the Hacca for President and Sister Mains. It was their last zone conference. Then afterward due to Polynesian culture we touched our noses to President Mains and kissed Sister Mains on the cheek. Not something normal but it was a once in a lifetime experience so I jumped in :) sorry I don't have a picture :( 

-Been running a 4k everyday with night time basketball workouts this week. Gotta keep those legs going. 

-Elder Lundahl-Wolford and I fell asleep at the bus stop this week because we got caught in a huge rainstorm and didn't have any rain gear. It was pretty funny looking, like we were homeless (see picture). 

It rains pretty much everyday here in JB. You can almost predict the exact time it will start raining because it rains the same exact time everyday. Always starts around 12 oclock everyday and goes till about 3. 

One of our investigators who I talked about before is back. It is an Indian man age 23 about to marry a 65 yr old member of our church. It is crazy. Basically he wants citizenship and so it is really hard to teach him because it is hard to know if he has real intent or just wants to please the member and be baptized so that she will marry him so he can stay in Malaysia (he is from Malaysia). The struggles of missionary work :/ They are getting married in 2 weeks. 

This week I started writing a piano arrangement of the hymn "Praise to the Man." Hopefully I can finish it soon! I love it! I play the piano for church each and have been learning more and more hymns! 

We had a wonderful focus on finding a family this week and we found a wonderful new Indian family that are now new investigators! Their daughter reminded me so much of Savannah! Oh man it killed me! (see picture)

I felt really inspired by these verses this week Alma 26:26-32

Love you all,

Elder Pierce

p.s.I have been learning some Tamil since we have teaching so many Indian investigators! (Get ready for a 3 language homecoming testimony haha.) 

 28 And now behold, we have come, and been forthamongst them; and we have been patient in our sufferings,and we have suffered every privation; yea, we havetraveled from house to house, relying upon the mercies ofthe world—not upon the mercies of the world alone butupon the mercies of God.
 29 And we have entered into their houses and taughtthem, and we have taught them in their streets; yea, andwe have taught them upon their hills; and we have alsoentered into their temples and their synagogues and taughtthem; and we have been cast out, and mocked, and spitupon, and smote upon our cheeks; and we have beenstoned, and taken and bound with strong cords, and castinto prison; and through the power and wisdom of God wehave been delivered again.
