Hello, Everyone!

Transfer season again and guess what? I'm staying in Sisaket! We are both staying so that's great coz I get to stay with the awesome Sister Shipp :)

The week was full of joy and service opportunities.
On our last pday, my companion and I didn't go with some missionaries to ride elephants because we were too tired to go so we just decided to stay home and relax. We needed it and I think that helped me a lot! hahaha! we just went to a member's house and she taught us how to cook sweet and sour vegetables. it was so good. It has cucumbers and pineapples and tomatoes so I can do it even back home. I'm so excited for that. 

We had Switch Offs with the Sister Training Leaders last Wednesday so it was all fun and also productive as we got to visit a lot of people too. That day, it was sad to drop one of our investigators. (dropping is when you stop teaching someone because they are not progressing) She used to go to church but never kept commitments. Last Sunday, we had to drop 2 of our daters too. Their date is really close but we had to drop them because they cant go to church anymore. They are two old women who tries to keep commitments but some of their neighbors are trying to threaten them if they keep coming to church. Their neighborhood is sort of a black Magic neighborhood and some people said they are going to kill them if they continue to meet with us. One of them cried because she wants to be baptized and come to church but so afraid that her family will be harmed. The members also asked us not to visit the neighborhood for it's kind of dangerous. So all of that was so sudden and weird. The members kept on saying that once investigators progress, the adversary will always work hard to keep them from walking on the right path. true though. 

But then again, miracles do happen as long as we seek for them. Last night was our Halloween party and we got to see some new people at church. I was so excited for the party because we invited a lot of people. Also, it was the end of the transfer so last chance to hit our goals! The people last night were awesome and we took the chance to talk with more people. At times, it can be tricky and scary but we found two prepared people and extended baptismal dates. They accepted! We knew for sure that there is Heavenly help right there. Miracles!

Yesterday, we also got to visit an old member. she's 102 years OLD!!! WOW. She is so skinny and small. We sang for her and she liked it. (I think she liked it lol) She reminds me of my grandmother who is now 93 years old. It made me miss her! tomorrow, we're going to her house again to help wash her and her room.

This week, we also did some gardening. Here in Thailand, it was my first time to use the heavy grasscutter and hoe and I think im pretty good at it. hello pa!!! We worked under the heat so double fun!

Cold Season is almost here! Christmas is almost here! AAAAAAAAAAAAH I love you all. Keep serving other people because if we serve them, we are also serving Him. I love my Heavenly Father and my Savior. This is what I've got for this week. message you all on Monday!

p.s. I can reply until 6pm
