Bangkok has super sweet stuff. Like laser tag.
SO for this week here in Samut Prakaannnnn.
What did we do?
Well we worked. Like it's the same grind. Guess I'll share two stories.
We were on a bus and I was making phone calls, calling every single person that I didn't know in our phone book. Went through and called her. She picked up, didn't know who we were at first, then realized woah. It's the missionaries. So we set up an appointment and met with her. We introduce ourselves, talk and get to know her and then ask her about how praying has been going in her life. And this is were it got trippy cause she just gets the most excited face on. She goes and shares about how she was just praying and thinking about church for the first time in around a year. Right after that we had called her. And because of this experience she has gone insane on sharing the gospel and the power of prayer with her friends! STOKING.
2-The only question is...
Whether or not the Book of Mormon is true. If it is true, everything else falls into place. If it is true, Joseph Smith truly did receive revelation. If it is true, modern revelation is a thing. Seriously everything falls into place. Two quick instances of how epicly this worked this week.
We had an investigator, didn't really understand much at first but agreed to go to church, came to church, still didn't understand much, but then he said he felt good. Fast forward a few days, we are teaching him again and now it just seems like something changed. We are going through asking him questions. Then I ask him "Hey, do you feel like the Book of Mormon is true?" His answer just blows me away. "I know it is true. I prayed like you asked me and told God that if this book is true, help me understand it." He understands the Book of Mormon. Us and the members were just blown away. You could say he's progressing
Another family we were teaching we asked them to pray about the Book of Mormon. We had to follow up with them quite a bit. But then they did it. The know that the Book of Mormon is true and because of this knowledge all the commandments and teachings are of little problem to them, no matter how big or little the changes they need to make are.
"And I said unto him: I know that he loveth his children; nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things."
When it comes to the end of the day, or when we face those tough questions. Sometimes it doesn't always make sense. But what is certain is God's love. It's not always important to have every single answer, but what we can find comfort in is that their is someone that promises to love us. Unconditionally and without bounds.
