Such a busy week! 

Last Monday's pday was fun. We bought and painted some small sculptures and they all sit on my desk right now. That was relaxing! We mostly just stayed at home for pday. Cleaned the house and talked with each other. Hahahaha perfect pday for me. Also a #MiracleMonday because we found an investigator named Charita who asked where the church is. Sometimes, we meet these investigators who randomly come up to us and ask amazing questions. It is so true that we'll either find them or they'll find us! 

Like a lady who sells drinks in front of the school last week who asked about the Book of Mormon? We met with her last Wednesday! And guess what? She's read up to 4 Nephi!!! She is so awesome we had an appointment with her at her stand and she really loved reading the Book of Mormon said that she knows it's true. Awesome! 

On Wednesday night we had to go down to Bangkok so we took an 8hour bus ride! Just me and Sister Shipp. Differeny city. Different country! It amazes me how I understand people now. I can still remember earlier this year when my trainer and I went to Bangkok for my work permit! After about three signatures, we're on the way back to Siskaet via sleeping train. But before that, Sister Shipp and I tried to eat at this Hongkong Place. I attempted the Spring Rolls hoping it would taste like LUMPIA but it didn't! Hahaha nevertheless the Pork Bun tasted like SIOPAO so that was good. It was an 8hr sleeping train ride back to Sisaket. Went home then took a nap and then went back to work. Such a busy day still.

So I've been in the ISAN for about 7 months now. I cant speak much Isan but I think I understand more now. Last Friday, we visited an investigator who sells smoothies and taught the Plan of Salvation with her. She just really have problems personally also about prayer and the scriptures(commitments) but she's always been very kind to us and has been going to church this past month. One of her customers asked her about us. I kinda overheard it in Isan. The guy asked her if she is changing religions and she was defensive about it and said she isn't and that we're just visiting. Well, that made me really sad because after that conversation, she didn't want to speak with us anymore and ค่อยๆ made us leave in a nice way. I love her and I've always been praying for her. I know it's like nothing personal when people reject the gospel but it's still sad at times. She's amazing and I hope and pray that everything goes well for her. We were walking home and my companion asked me what just happened and so I told her. But the work continues, the search for the elect is still on and the faith to find shall not falter ;)

This week was about service too! We went to another town to help weed a member's yard and also fill a hole with logs for charcoal, I guess. I've seen it twice back home because my father made charcoal once in our farm(before). I was so tired because I used a hoe while working and I think I did a pretty great job weeding hahahahaha after that we spent time to pack everything in our and move to our new house which is way closer to the church. Also has kitchen so I'm so happy I'll be able to cook again!!!!!

Alsoooo Me and my companion chose to fast for this transfer and for Miracles yesterday and พอดีว่า when we went to Sacrament meeting this member asked us to sit with a referral! Miracles. Miracles. We met a not so old lady and went to her house yesterday too. 

I want to bear my testimony that there are miracles every single day - that God is a God of miracles and if we will open our hearts, we'll surely open the door where miracles are. Also, we can help others open the doors of miracles too! And that begins with Love. 

In Moroni Chapter 7 it says

48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen.

I know that Love in our hearts can do so many miracles! Let us pray for love every single day. 
I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ loves us so much. Heavenly Father sent His son because of His love for us. Jesus Christ sacrificed because of His love for us too. 

So my challenge for everyone this week is to think of someone you love- be it a family or a friend. Why do you love him/her? And we'll continue the challenge next week!

Love you all!
