Jalan-Jalan ke Mars (Road to Mars)

So this week was Zone conference! It was so good! For one, I got to see Sis. Crandall and Sis,. Petersen from the MTC. It was so nice to see them again! It was also really nice to be able to get to know people out here. 
As for the spiritual things.... We talked a lot about our less actives, as Malaysia has a lot of less actives (our branch has about 450), and how we can help them. Something that was said really stuck out to me, and that was to "love them enough to try." That really hit me personally. Of course it's an interesting ride trying to communicate, talk to people, and just to express that love and desire you have for them to realize how eternally life changing this gospel is, and it can be super frustrating! I wave my arms in the air and make big faces, but that doesn't always convey the words I'm trying to find. Unfortunately. But the love is in the trying. If I don't try, then am I really being a disciple of Jesus Christ and showing Heavenly Father's love for them? I like to think that as a missionary that's one of our responsibilities, to show and give Heavenly Father's love to others. AND really, for us who have this knowledge as a whole. Arg! Out of time! I'll write this first next week. Janji! Promise!
I love you so much! Seriously. I'm doing fantastically. I really feel like I've taken off this week, and I know your prayers have helped me. Thank you so much for being such a supportive and loving mom, for always emailing me, and for raising such a loving, faithful, family. That's something a lot of people here don't have, it's not really in the culture. Which means that we're not only trying to chagne personal habits, but kind of the culture. This gospel is big, so big, and so perfectly, purely true. I love it, I love my Heavenly Father, and I love you! AKA, Don't worry about me, I'm being taken care of by my Heavenly Father. :D

P.S. Tell KC thanks for the letter! He's awesome, and kind of my favorite brother in law.

YOU"RE SO FRICKEN AMAZING! I brag about you ALL the time!!

This is the entrance to the fairy caves. You have to climb up 6 flights and then enter the cave.

I'm betting Sister MacKay is so very happy climbing on these rocks!

Nice & dirty from being inside the cave!


District? And that is Elder Ye's hand, not Sister MacKay's!

Missionaries are really into photobombing!
