Elder and Sister Nielson are the missionaries we are replacing. Here they are packed and ready to go. They spent six days with us showing us the ropes. They have done a wonderful job.
Sister Nielson organized a piano program of 14-16 students. They had a music camp and recital on Saturday. It was very impressive. I will be taking it over. I'm still doing a lot of praying to see what direction to take the program. But it will be directed to establishing more adult training so the members can keep the program going after the missionaries go home.
They have also worked hard in establishing seminaries and institutes. Member retention is difficult and a few are carrying the load of the many. The people of Malaysia are wonderful people but feelings are tender and having confidence to fill church callings is difficult.
