So to answer all your questions Mom, so Lebaran was 2 days but they pretty much get the whole week off. So today is the first day of kind of normal work, but the kids don't go back to school for another week so it's still pretty empty. It was so great because there was pretty much no traffic all week, but that means that we just have to find more places to go because no one is here to teach. It was fun though, because there were lots of tourists from Australia. They are on break too so we got to talk to Bules and we went to touristy places and had like hundreds of pictures taken with us because we're white people and we just handed out cards and pamphlets like crazy. So that was most of our week.
I could tell you about Sister Fuglsang but the exciting thing is that she is moving! She is moving to the city west of Jakarta called Tangerang and I am getting ANOTHER new companion! This is already my fifth companion in Jakarta haha. It's just like a transit here so I get all the companions for a couple of weeks and I can't move haha. So my new companion is Sister Utomo! She is from Surabaya but was working in Bali before so she is from Bali which is way cool. So there will be an excuse for me to go there someday haha.
Other than touristy stuff this week, trying to find people to talk to, we still taught Anyuk. She definitely still needs for it to be slow and steady for her to have spiritual experiences. She doesn't really believe it for herself yet, but she still enjoys having us come. We taught her about prayer again more specifically so hopefully she can apply that in her life. I think if she realizes that Heavenly Father is real and that he does answer her prayers that will be a great step in receiving a testimony of him.
There isn't much to say because life is pretty normal. I guess the most exciting thing today is that the electricity is out in the mission home right now but there is a generator that is connected to Presidents office and the Wifi so we got some laptops and we can still email thank goodness haha. That's about all I've got for today. Hopefully I will be able to think of more things to say this next week and now that people are actually coming back to Jakarta we can have people to teach again.
Love you all so much,
Sister Jacqueline Davis
