-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
