Don't have much time I will keep this one short. :) 

This week was zone conference. It was insane. So much to do. All of west malaysia came in the beginning of the week and then East malaysia later in the week. So basically there are two zone conferences. 

We do the conducting for the meetings and basically along with all the back-stage work. Also we gave a training for helping retain recent converts which went well. We have new visions not to have baptisms but rather to have progressing recent converts! It is easy to get those mixed in your head as a missionary. 

Then on Friday we were on exchanges in Filipino ward with the Miri/Bintulu Zone leaders. That was great. I got to be back with Elder South my previous companion for a day. 

Also this week, because we say to hi people (no one else in singapore does that) we got asked if we were drunk or high? That was a first :) 

On Sunday we had Jenny's baptism! She was so awesome! We found her just by opening our mouths on the way to an appointment on the Subway about 2 months ago! Cool to see her progression! Then Elder Perritt and I did an awesome rendition of "I Know That My Redeemer Lives." Check it out at the bottom. 

Parley P. Pratt said the following about the Holy Ghost. I have been ponderizing this this week:

“[His influence] quickens all the intellectual faculties, increases, enlarges, expands and purifies all the natural passions and affections; and adapts them, by the gift of wisdom, to their lawful use. It inspires, develops, cultivates and matures all the fine-toned sympathies, joys, tastes, kindred feelings and affections of our nature. It inspires virtue, kindness, goodness, tenderness, gentleness and charity. It develops beauty of person, form and features. It tends to health, vigor, animation and social feeling. It invigorates all the faculties of the physical and intellectual man. It strengthens, and gives tone to the nerves. In short, it is, as it were, marrow to the bone, joy to the heart, light to the eyes, music to the ears, and life to the whole being” 

Take some time, to take advantage and recognize the gift(s) of the spirit more in your own life and others. I promise it will make you more happy. You will know you are on the right path. :) 

Love you all,

Elder Pierce
