Christmas

The malls are decorated for Christmas and the play Christmas music from the middle of November but that is the only place we see Christmas decorations. A few homes have small Christmas trees but it does not feel like Christmas, hot and green.

Thanksgiving dinner

All of the missionaries in the branch went to the Neilsons home for dinner. They are an expat  family who just moved to Malaysia about two months  ago. It was great to have dinner with them. Thanksgiving is not a holiday in Malaysia so it was good to spend part of the day with Americans. The missionaries had two hours to spend with them. The Neilsons also invited two Chinese families from his work.


Wheelchair turning over

The Humanitarian Missionaries asked us to help them with a handing over of wheelchairs at Cheshire Homes. It was good to be involved with humanitarian work again. We had a very nice program and the
Church received some good recognition
