Thomas had another milestone on his mission. He spoke at the church service in Malay and felt like people could understand him. It's pretty amazing that he's able to deliver the 10-minute sermon in Malay after so little training. He sent us a recording of the sermon and we have no clue what he was talking about. However, he sounded quite coherent and almost fluent.
Thomas will spend next week in Sibu for training. Sibu is an inland city founded my Chinese immigrants in the early 1900s. It's located at the confluence of 2 major rivers and has the largest public square in Malaysia and the tallest building in the state of Sarawak. Thomas is excited about exploring the second largest city in Sarawak (after Kuching).
