Week 10, Sakon Nakorn, Thailand (with a new companion)

Here is a handful of insects that I ate. Just really random.

Anyways I am doing great! My Thai has improved a lot. I never realized this but earlier in the Mission, I hadn't asked for the Gift of Tongues in my prayers, but since I have my Thai has gotten exponentially better. That small little addition is helping me out. Also I didn't receive this blessing because I just asked for it, it was the purpose behind it. I asked the Lord to give me this help so that I may share the gospel more fully and with more strength in the things I say... 
...So this past week was the last week with my trainer Elder Jex. We worked hard on the last few days until transfer meeting. Then we had an 11 hour bus ride from Sakon Nakhon to Bangkok. Once we got there we went straight to the Transfer Meeting. (Keep in mind I haven't showered yet) 
Then I met up with my cousin Elder Smith. We sat together during the meeting. But my new companion is Elder Hogan. He is from Salt Lake City and we are very much similar. He has a guitar so I definitely take advantage of that. 


I split off from the transfer meeting to go renew my visa and that took 8 hours to do. So we ended up missing our bus back home. So we rescheduled our bus tickets to a later time. We made it to a bus that left at 9:30 at night. So we had another 11 hour bus ride back to Sakon Nakhon. (Once again...I still haven't showered..) 

I finally got to Sakon Nakhon around 8 am. Then I finally got to shower. 

That was most of that trip. 

I love you all and I hope that you find joy in the world. Make sure you go to the Temple because I won't be able to go to the temple for 2 years. Take advantage of that! Not too many people get to have three different temples within a 30 minute drive!

Once again, I am very sure I have eaten dog already. Sakon=Dog eating country
