Hello, everyone!

I just cant believe September is almost over! Where did time go? Well, speaking of time, I'm already halfway through my mission. SO FAST!
The past 4 days were great too! I like training. It's challenging but so fun. I love my ลูก! She is so fire and I'm so excited for this transfer.

Honestly, I do feel that 24 hours is not enough for 1 day. We're back to 3 hours of studies and I make sure we have some time for finding people! And I love how we have been seeing miracles! Especially when finding.
The other day we were out walking to lunch, carrying our Book of Mormons, and someone asked what book it was and that she WANTS to read it. In my head, I'm like "well of course you can read it + internal crying hahaha" she's awesome and we're so excited to share more! :)
Sister Shipp is so awesome and is so willing to learn more! I also learned a lot from her these past few days!
At first, I felt like it was going to be stressful when I train. But honestly... yes it is. Hahahaha Just kidding! Training is fun and full of miracles. We are so blessed to be here in Sisaket.

Well, something that I learned these past few weeks is PATIENCE. Dealing with situations with HOPE and FAITH. I think that's really important whatever situation where in. I know that it is important to believe in Him and His timing because He knows what's best for us. I learned how to work with a positive attitude and it helped me overcome everyday challenges. So... my challenge for us is to be patient with ourselves and have more faith!

I love you all. Maybe we'll try emailing from the computer next week so I can write moreeeeee

Be In tuned

Hello, everyone! 

Time has been super fast and I can't believe that I'm now on to my 6th transfer! Yesterday was the first time that I felt a little sick ไม่สบาย - like all throughout the day I felt like throwing up and a little nauseous... and then at night I felt better. At around 9pm, President Hammond called and told me I'm gonna train a new missionary! And I felt sick again... Hahaha just kidding!

So that's really exciting! Also a little nervewracking so let's see... I'm gonna be a mom in the mission แล้ว yaaaaay #responsibilities 

One thing that I have learned from the past weeks is that we have to follow the safeguards in using our devices. We are a facebook-using mission and we have to be more careful on what we do online. As a servant and representative of the Lord, we should always strive to be in tuned with the spiritual promptings of the spirit :) 

SO my challenge for us is to always strive to be in tuned with the spirit! There are so many things online that may give us unclean thoughts... let us be more aware of our thoughts. ❤

My next Pday is in Monday นะ.
Also, my brother leaves for a mission too... this week!!!!!!!! I'm so ดีใจ and I'm gonna miss him so much!!!!

-BER months

สวัสดีค่ะ 🇹🇭

The past week has been soooo great! Unfortunately, we weren't able to find the one/หนึ่ง.... YET. So the search still continues. We were able to find out which town he's from plus his university though!

We had switchoffs Wednesday afternoon to Thursday morning. It was weird because I got to switch off with both Sister Training Leaders so that was awesome. ;) learned a ton on talking with everyone and finding people. I love finding! 
On Thursday, we went to a funeral of a member in Roi at. His name is พ่อ เขียว. At first I thought it's gonna be more of a Thai funeral but it's actually a Christian funeral... We sang hymns for him that day. 

Saturday: แพน's Baptism! She is so awesome! She is just 19 but she thinks and acts more mature than her age. She is a little shy(like me...) but she is so prepared! I am so happy that she finally entered the waters of baptism. In her testimony, she thanked everyone and shared about how baptism is the door and first step. And that she would do everything to keep the commandments. I like that. She has the mindset to do the Lord's will. 

But before the Baptism, we had to work so hard to fill the baptismal font 😂 turns out that the elders didn't drain the font after their last baptism so it's kind of moldy and smells! Also, we didn't know how to drain it so we called the bishop. He kinda didn't know it too so we got some buckets to drain and get the water off the font. TURNS out that the bishop actually opened the water thing so we were working with the buckets while there's actually more water coming out from the faucet. Hahahaha after that the bishop found out how to work the drain and it drained in less than 10 minutes. That was a good core exercise Lol! 

This week was full of emotions too! You know when you want to help someone but they don't want to help themselves? It's hard and it's sad. But Also, I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for us - better than our plans. Every night, I pray for faith, love and strength... and then I came across this talk from Elder Uchtdorf and it says: 

"But no matter how much faith we have, there are two things faith cannot do. For one, it cannot violate another person’s agency.The second thing faith cannot do is force our will upon God. We cannot force God to comply with our desires—no matter how right we think we are or how sincerely we pray."

That's says a lot! Sometimes, faith has limits but we can always always always pray for faith and courage to act on that faith. Courage to help others to have more faith too! So my challenge for us this week is to pray for faith and courage/strength to act on that faith. I know that Heavenly Father will bless us as we do that. It has helped me so much.

I just hit my 6th month mark in country a few weeks ago btw. I almost forgot! When I talk with people here, I always say I only have a year left. Little did I know I only have 10 months! Way fasssssst

Alright. Bye everyone love y'all! Email me and I'll reply today. PASKO NA SA PINASSSSSSS
