The church in Sibu is on the 6th floor of a building and this is the view of the city from the church. The tall white building on the right is houses an internet cafe where Thomas emails us from.
Another view of the city from the church. Sibu is a medium size city with about 250,000 people. It has a large Chinese population because it grew out of a settlement founded by Chinese immigrants from Fuzhou (Foochow) in 1901.
The LDS church in Sibu has 3 branches. Two are Malay speaking and one Mandarin speaking. Thomas is serving in the Sibu 1st Branch. He and Elder Ajek share an apartment with Elders Williams (from Georgia) and Chin (from Sabah, East Malaysia).
