On Sat. Feb. 14th, we gathered all our JB Branch members together to say goodbye. This is our wonderful friend and R.S. President, Sis. Amy Kurup and her daughter, Meera and son, Jaden.
I held it together pretty well for the entire evening, until I said goodbye to Sis. Kurup.
We have "bertahan sampai akhir" (endured to the end), we have served these wonderful Saints of Malaysia, and have been greatly blessed over these past 2 years. We have checked out at the mission office, have paid all our outstanding bills and cleaned up all our accounts, received our de-worming pills to take home, and just need a tuberculosis test and one shot when we get home. We leave our hotel room at 4 am in the morning and then fly for 19 hours from Singapore to Tokyo to Seattle and finally into Salt Lake City at 4 pm tomorrow. It will be so weird, but we look forward to American food again, and hot clean water, and driving on the other side of the road. The homecoming, at the airport, will be just like when we all meet again in the celestial kingdom; a great big crying and hugging scene of welcome happiness. Can't wait.

I put 5 ringgit in each box. Above this statue was another one, all in gold. It was a chariot pulled by 4 golden horses. The whole thing was life size. It was gorgeous.

It was a very large "buffet" meal, with a different twist to it. You get your plates and go to the buffet section and take all the raw meats and vegetables you want.
It was a unique experience. We went back only once to get more meat to cook, but our hosts went back about 3 or 4 more times. Jeff Lee brought back noodles and more greens and mushrooms and all sorts of fishes to drop into the soup mix. We just watched. It was very kind of Jeff and Cheryl to take us out to eat. We ate well and really enjoyed ourselves.
