-We ran into a drug deal this week. legitmately. 
-I got to go on exchanges with Elder Lundahl-Wolford in Sibu this week on his birthday. Amazing to be back with him. 
-Working on my ball handling everyday. Weights every night. 
-Working on memorizing 2100 chinese characters and how to write them. 
-our miemar investigator's father is a pastor over two anglican churches and yet he is going to be baptized on march 27th!

We have a goal of 6 baptisms this transfer. the miracles are real. It is going to happen.

On Monday we went to botanic gardens. We felt weird doing so because all of our plans fell through it was a backup plan and we didn't really know why we were supposed to be there. We got there realized it was kind of a waste of time or so we thought. And so we decided to pray. Then we asked God for Filipinos who could be baptized. Then we decided to go to this hut and wow there it was. A Filipino reading the bible. We read with her for 10 minutes or so and then we met with her 3 more times that week. Now she is on date and is one of our 6 baptisms. :) she is ridiculously solid and already has a testimony that this church is the only true church on the entire earth. 

 Last week we had a really spiritual contact with a Filipino and she promised to come to church this week but then the entire week even on sunday morning she wouldn't answer our calls or texts. We thought for sure she was long gone because that happens all the time with Filipinos and once they don't answer it means they don't want anymore and so we were pretty down about it. But then at 11:50 am on sunday 10 minutes before church we get a text. She is on her way in a taxi. She arrives 5 minutes late to Sacrament. She is put on date for march 20th. Come to find out, she hadn't been answering because she was in Hong Kong with her employer. She told her employer that she needed to come back to Singapore by Sunday morning for church but her boss said no because she had already bought her a ticket on Monday and so (Therisa) that is her name - bought her own plane ticket home on SUnday morning and took a taxi straight from Changi Airport to the church. Her sacrifice is unbelievable. She literally took a plane to church. SHE TOOK A PLANE TO CHURCH.  DID YOU HEAR ME? SHE TOOK A PLANE TO CHURCH!

 19 And if there were miracles wrought then, why has Godceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeableBeing? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if sohe would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God,and is a God of miracles.

 21 Behold, I say unto you that whoso believeth in Christ,doubting nothing, whatsoever he shall ask the Father inthe name of Christ it shall be granted him; and thispromise is unto all, even unto the ends of the earth.

love you all,

Elder Pierce
