Feed the Missionaries!!

Hello Everybody!!!!
This week was a really good week. I am so glad i got to serve here for Christmas (even though there is no snow here) . It has been one of my favorite Christmas's of my life I just wish i could have been around family. It was really fun because we went to a lot of members houses and shared a message about the Savior and it just built my testimony 10 fold. I really enjoy serving with Elder Kavapalu. he is a great missionary. Its good because we both have a can do attitude so we just go work. Singapore all around is just different to serve here, and now everyone asks me what they can do all day, since we shouldn't be setting apart time for "contacting." So i am just looking and searching for good things to tell them. I have said that i feel that it is an opportunity for us to work with the members and get their support and trust so that they will give the missionary work a push. So its just a problem for everyone serving in singapore to find out what to do all day. but it was nice i got a lot of dinner appointments and its really good because i dont have any money left so i would have starved without the members, so FEED THE MISSIONARIES!. I am so glad that i got to talk to some of you at christmas. i love and miss everyone!! i wish i could have skyped everyone! Love Elder Morgan

Merry Christmas!!

Hello everybody!! This week has been better! my investigators actually found a little time for us in their busy schedules. so we were able to meet with them! then this week i was able to give my first 2 baptism interviews. its way awesome to get to be the person that gets to hear these people witness about the truth that they have just learned. then this week was transfers and there were only 2 changes in my district. sister waldvogel finished her mission then elder hansen who is in my group left to malaysia. so i still have an awesome district. I am getting fed a lot now because its getting around christmas time and everyone is a lot more giving around this time of the year. I had dinner last night at an actual white persons house! its the first time since i left home since ive had real american food! I love being here and doing the lords work. i know that as i am here he will take care of everyone at home. so i just ahve to keep going and not worry! Thank you all for the love and support that i get! sorry its short message! but i love you all and i miss you!

The guy wants to go to BYU!

This week was a bit rough for me. it was hard because i literally taught 0 people this week. i had no appointments so i just spent a lot of time trying to talk to people on the bus and the trains, and that doesnt work to well because people are so busy all the time in singapore. but something really cool happened at church today. so i had no investigators there, that isnt the cool part, but that a random guy showed up and said that he wants to go to byu provo and he was looking and finding out about it and he went to the church website and he found the church so he just came and he really like church a lot and he is bringing his wife this next week so i am really excited about that! it was just cool how he was able to find the church and how he now is bringing his family! so that was basically the highlight of my week! i love and miss you all!!

Riding the train........

HEllo everybody! so this week was an okay week. my companion is in singapore for medical help so we are at the doctors a lot so that takes up most of our time when we would be just riding trains trying to talk to people. but this week i was able to have an actual thanksgiving dinner!! this member made some real american food it was so nice!! 6-months since i had mashed potatoes last. so i ate way to much and i couldnt even eat anything the day after. my stomach is still digesting from friday when i ate. this week was hard because 2 of our main investigators are gone. one was in indonesia and the other went back to the philipines. so we only met with 2 investigators this week. this girl that im teaching is named anne. and she is awesome she asks all the right questions and shes hopefully going to be baptized on the 27th! then i got to make friends with a lot more of the members because we had a ward bowling activity so that was really fun and got some referals from that. then i gave a talk in church on sunday about following jesus christs example in doing missionary work. so i talked about how we can gain his christlike attributes and how we can try to become like him. that was basically my week. i love and miss you all and i hope all is well.
