Week 6 (Finally caught up). Thai translation will follow later today.


Monday- We had a lesson fall through so we went out and invited and found a guy that we had taught last week and we didn't realize it was him! So we taught him but he hadn't kept his commitments because we later found out that he couldn't read. He said that he didn't understand the last lesson so we offered to help him read, as well as help me read, as always. Then we had a lesson with our investigator named Brother Liu. He came and was excited to say something. SO we started the lesson and went on and asked how the Book of Mormon has been. He said, OH! I have something to say. A few weeks ago he had been praying all day for multiple days. Whenever he had free time he said he would pray. So one night he had a dream that he was on top of a mountain and didn't know why. He then woke up and went to go read in the Book of Mormon. As brother Lui was relating his dream,  Elder Jex and I thought to ourselves, that sounds like Nephi's dream (of course we didn't know what each of us was thinking until the lesson was over). Anyway, brother Lui said, "As I turn the page to continue my reading, it was 1 Nephi 11:1 ("For it came to pass after I had desired to know the things that my father had seen, and believing that the Lord was able to make them known unto me, as I sat apondering in mine heart I was bcaught away in the Spirit of the Lord, yea, into an exceedingly high cmountain, which I never had before seen, and upon which I never had before set my foot.") and it was the exact verse that Nephi had his dream on top of a mountain. Needless to say, brother Lui was very happy to know it was an answer to his prayers. It is amazing. He is more than willing to follow the commandments.

Tuesday- We almost died. A members parents doesn't like us. So her parents came to the church to come get her but she had left already. So her mom was waiting by the church for some reason so Me and Elder Jex were about to leave and I felt that we needed to stay and wait for the other Elders. So I told them that we all need to get out of here and take a different alley way. When we got out of the alley, we found a member and said hello, and as soon as that happened the mom tried to run us over with her car and honked. So we all tried to get out of there as fast as we could....

Wednesday- One giant mistake I did was try to talk to a Farang. He was from Holland, and he was just interrogating me. He said what is different from your church, I said it is the true church and what not. Then he said, that's what everyone says. Then I talked about the restoration, and he just said, "......and?" I had no idea what else to say in English. We have got it easier here in Thailand for sure. The Khon Thai think it is either Buddhist or Christian. That's it.


Sunday- We had one of our investigators baptized. She is the Daughter of Mae Prayun. Who got baptized about two weeks ago.

It is amazing. They say the same things in their prayers as well, to have happiness. It's wonderful to see the gospel spreading through the members...

Anyways, love you all and hope to hear from you soon!
