Week 42 - Saying Goodbye to Semarang

Monday, November 3, 2014

Found this cute little guy in our house

Hello Everyone,

This week has gone pretty good.  I spent some time visiting all the people I want to say goodbye to before I leave.  I’m excited to move but sad at the same time!  I really love the members here.

Our Bishop

This week we gave out 2 Books of Mormon and had a lesson with one of our investigators.  Bishop came to the lesson which was good! He was a lot of help!
We met a new lady. She really didn’t understand the concept of Jesus and why he was crucified.  She grew up in a village where they just had a tribal religion and so we have to start on fresh ground.... but that’s ok!

On Friday we had our last DDM (District meeting)  together in Semarang. We took some fun pictures! We went to Brother Bon Bon’s and he wasn’t there again.   So then we met with Brother Sam.

Are you allowed to have pocketknives? If I sent you one in a Christmas package would you be able to have it? No I wouldn’t send one also don't send chocolate or melty things.  It's getting very hot here.

Do you transfer on Thursday? Yep to Jakarta!

Amanda wants to know if you think in Indonesian now. Not usually

Are you transferring to the Mission home? Yep only for 2 weeks until we get a house!

What will you are doing there? Working still/

Maybe you could make the Donald's some Arizona salsa! I could but they don’t sell tortilla chips!

What will you miss about Semarang? The members!

What are you doing for p-day today?
I'm going to a temple built 400 years after Jesus .. its 2 hours away.
Please pray that we will find people who want to hear our message! 
Love you all and have a great week!
Love, Elder Jones
