Huh. Not too sure what even happened this week...

From last P-day, we had gone out to a dormant volcano here in Buriram.

Yeah. Like one day its Tuesday and I'm teaching English....and then its already Sunday at church. Woah. Where is time going. Why is it moving so fast. I'm running out of time!

The happenings this week: Teaching, Inviting, Eating, Studying. The usual

The not so fun stuff this week: 

Food poisoning.
So funny story....There's a certain noodle place that another missionary used to eat at every single day. And we are talking for like 3 months worth of time. Every day. Same noodle place. So we go and eat there. First time, its all goooooooddd. Way good noodles, quick service, cheap. Just the way we like it. Then our second time there. Same thing. Tastes good, quick service, and then we are back on our way working. But then night time comes. And like it just doesn't work out. And then all the common symptoms of food poisoning come along. Yup. Not fun. Yup. yeah. yeah. Guess I won't be eating there again.....

We've got a mouse that sorta runs around and we see it but we have yet to capture it. Until we bought these huge glue traps. Like the trap was probably a good square foot. It was huge. So one night we set the traps up, the next morning we walk downstairs to see a mouse stuck on the trap squealing. No more mice problems (hopefully)

But other than that....This week was just way way way busy. Buriram normally has 4 elders but right now its just us. Just Elder Powers and me. So therefore we are taking on quite a bit of an extra workload. But it's alright. Being busy feels oh so good! Going out teaching, visiting less active members. Working hard the wholeeeee week. And then on Sunday when people start coming to church you realize how much you've really done. But is this all enough? NOPE. It doesn't matter how hard we think we worked. There's always something more to be done. There's always something we can improve on. And there will always be a way for us to become better disciples of God.

Don't settle with being "enough." Push limits. Trust in God and He will show you everything you need to do. Seriously. We are His children. He only wants the best for us. Therefore, everything that He wants us to do will help us. I know these things to be true. I have this firm testimony simply because I have gone out and done. I have done these things for myself. I just challenge you all to go out and try these things for yourself also. Find those little things that keep you from progressing. No matter how small or insignificant you may think your steps are, they aren't. Every step forward is a step in the right direction.
