The Prophet and Apostle

Yep! He came! President Nelson and Elder Holland, together with their wives, came to Thailand! It was a very historical event and I feel way blessed to have witnessed it. Last Friday, we flew down to Bangkok and the event was so far the biggest Thai Mormon gathering ever.It was a great sight! Also, it's my first time to see the Prophet and it will forever be one of the best days of my life! They both had translators so everyone would be able to understand. People from Burma and Laos came too. It's amazing how much they have sacrificed to came and listen to the Prophet's voice! 

There are just so many miracles! We have this investigator who we almost dropped because she is not really progressing BUT called us last week and said she's going to Bangkok to see the prophet!!! Now that's a miracle. It takes 8 hours to go to Bangkok and that's a lot of faith. She went with the branch. She got to see the prophet!!!! She said she had goosebumps all throughout the meeting and she loved all the messages! aaaah! She asked why the meeting was so short and she wanted to stay for like, until 11 or something. she just loved it so much and asked us when the next meeting is so she can book a flight instead because the bus ride made her sooooo tired. She's about 50 yrs old and she's from Laos. There are times when I can and can't understand her. Sometimes she speaks Laotian, Thai and Isan. So maybe sometimes it just works out. hahaha But she's really amazing. when we visited her yesterday, she doesn't want us to leave yet because she says she has a happy feeling when we're with her. She told us about her dream about a tree, with a light coming out of it, and a person dressed in white above it. and that she's trying to reach His hand but she woke up... well we asked her to read 1Nephi 8. She's just really so close and she needs to recognize the Holy Ghost more.

Also! another miracle is when our dropped investigator (because he isnt responding anymore for like a long time) told us he's going to church and he really did. That's really awesome so we're teaching him again. There are a lot of miracles, really. Everyday is a miracle!

The visit of  President Nelson and Elder Holland really brought so much miracles. He gave an Apostolic blessing and I cant really explain how wonderful that is. I testify that He is the prophet, seer and revelator of the Lord. WITHOUT A DOUBT. I'm grateful for the love of God we feel and receive from His representatives. It's amazing how he told us about their trip to the Holy Land (Jerusalem) That they went there to feel closer to Jesus. I was really thinking about that. A prophet and an apostles exerting these amazing efforts to feel closer to God. 

What have we done to feel closer to the Lord? Something to ponder about! 

Elder Holland reminded of the greatest day that has happened in History - How important and marvelous atonement is. He talked about how the Lord loves all of us. I testify that no matter where we are from, He will always be with us. No matter who we are or what we're going through. He understands us and loves us.

One of my favorite messages from Pres Nelson is "We'll build the temple as fast as we can.But it's up to you to build yourselves to the point where you can go to the temple".No matter how far or near the temple is from where we are... Our personal preparation is still one of the most important things. God has blessed our lives with a lot of things, a lot of people and experiences. But He also wants us to feel His love as we enter His Holy House.

I love you all and I'll email you again next monday! :)
