Transfer to West Malasia

hey mom

well, things have been going really good. i had a tough week tho. we baptized those six people i told you about last week, and everyone got confirmed and things are going awesome in our area.. but the night before the baptism day, i found out i'm getting transferred. out of sarawak. out of borneo. luckily not into singapore, but to a city called johor bahru, west malaysia. and if that's not enough, i will be training. that threw me for a loop and was something i was completely not expecting. so i was pretty sad because it means i will have to leave kuching.

being a missionary, you are always looking for ways to improve, and to build up those christ-like attributes in yourself. so naturally, you can't help but learn to love the people that you are teaching. i have never loved people as much as the people in kuching, and i am really sad to have to leave them. my last sunday was fast sunday, so it was pretty cool to be able to give my final testimony before i left. there were quite a few people who even came to see me off at the airport, which was pretty cool. but anyways, as of now, i am sitting in singapore until my new companion shows up from america. he should have been here by now but his flight got delayed. poor guy. anyways, all the trainers normally pick up trainees in singapore to go through a bit of training together and meetings. so i wont actually get to see my new area until friday night.

but i'll still be able to call the people we had on date and make sure that they will get baptized.

i think it's kind of funny that jake said i look the same, because no matter where i go, everyone says i look skinnier than the last time they saw me, malaysians and missionaries included. "woah elder hill, you look so much skinnier than the last time i saw you!" i feel like i would be dead if i just kept getting skinnier and skinnier as time goes on, but maybe it is true.

anyways about the pictures, now that i am transferred, i'll hopefully be able to start sending you some. maybe it was God trying to send me a message, eh? but i'm currently on the singapore office computer. they are afraid of getting viruses, so they wont let me put pics on here. i'll have to wait til next week.

i dont know. i dont really have much else to say. i'm healthy. i'm happy (besides missing my recent converts) and i'll continue to baptize. please let me know what's going on. i dont really understand what you mean by "the other island," but that's ok. anyways, glad to hear from you. take care. love you, and i'll talk to you next week.
