Happy Mother's Day + 3rd Transfer (Greenie No More)

How are you all?

It's transfer day tomorrow! We're going down to Bangkok to work on our Visas and get our new companions. I'll be staying in Mahasarakham and I'm so glad! I love this area and the people here so much so I'm really excited for this transfer. I'm surely going to miss my mom (SIster Pherson) so much. She's the best trainer and I'm blessed to have her for 2 transfers. SO, I'm not a greenie anymore! (You get to be a greenie on your first two transfers. meaning: you're on training) I'm done with training so there's no excuse anymore. Thai is still a work on progress but I know that the Lord will help me with the language.

This week was great but also such a struggle. Our daters are just either leaving Mahasarakham or leaving the country. I don't know what has happened. We're teaching these two 10-year old kids and they are so good! The other one would always tell us stories about what she's read from the Book of Mormon. (I think I've already told you about it but yeah.. she moved to another place and It was so sad!) She doesn't want to move but she has too. Her mom already gave her permission to be baptized but she has to move with her grandmother. It's still in Mahasarakham but kinda far. We'll try to teach her grandmother too so she can still go to church. Ahhh I love her and I'm still looking forward to meeting with her!

My time to email today is short since my companion is moving and she still has to pack. Let me just share a verse from Alma 38.

"And now my son, Shiblon, I would that ye should remember, that as much as ye shall put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your troubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day."
I know that we would always face challenges and trials. But just like what God told Shiblon, He will deliver us out of these trials as long us we'll put our trust in Him. The challenges we face are important for us to better than who we are yesterday. I remember a quote from elder Maxwell it says 
"If you think your life is doing perfectly fine.. Just Wait!" 
So... my challenge for you this week is to try to be more positive and always know that whatever challenge or trial it is, we have a Father in Heaven who is always there to help us. We are just one prayer away from guidance.

Love you all and talk to you next week!
