Huh? It's already been a week? I'm running out of time on my mission!

Time is flying so fast. I don't remember much what happened this week. Honestly. I can't. It was a blur. We went out and tried to meet with a tonnnnnn of people. But people don't always want to meet with us. But the work moves on and we keep on giving it our heart.

So because nothing really happened other than working our hearts out here's some interesting thoughts I've had and a talk that I absolutely loved studying this week. 

So what is hope? It's way more than just a simple wish. It gives us a vision, a point that we go and try to reach. Hope is this abiding trust in God and His ability to help us. We are His children, He loves us so much. But at the same time, we came here to gain experiences. You don't just have experiences handed to you, you gotta go out and do stuff and face challenges. Whenever you think you can't overcome a challenge, that's not true. God has prepared a way for each of us to overcome anything and everything. All it takes is a bit of patience, enduring, and HOPE.
Read the talk. Ponder the words of President Uchtdorf. Great Stuff.

Wow. That was a short email. I guess I didn't have another interesting thought. Not much more to say. The work moves on. These people are actually amazing and I love them so much. Grateful for all of these opportunities to learn and to especially serve. 

Oh hey language study. So there's a huge Cambodian influence here in Surin. And one of our favorite LA's we are working with, Bro. Name, is from Cambodia. Therefore we have started a mini notebook of useful Cambodian phrases and words. Who would've guessed I would pick up some Cambodian while serving in Thailand?

Attached is us eating pizza at this pizza parlor we found in a back alley. Pretty good stuff, and made by a real Italian man. He met his wife while they were living in Italy. So she speaks to him in Italian. And would speak to us in Thai. And it was all very confusing, and funny. Yeah. Pizza was a great lunch break as we were heading home from service!

Keep it up keep it up keep it up!

  1. I was told by a friend in Malaysia that you can find pizza in every country. That you found it in Surin in a back alley is amazing.
