Hey What's up!
Nothing to crazy really happened this week, but at least the days went by fast so it wasn't bad. Where to even start…
I guess I'll talk about the investigators that we have, I guess. We still have Winay and his two kids Bam and Bom. They were all supposed to come to church yesterday, but at the last minute Winay ended up having to go work so it was just his kids that came, which was good. We were trying to get him baptized this week but it just wasn't possible he was out on business all week until Saturday night when he finally got back. The Zone Leaders were on our backs like crazy saying like; teach him everything during the second hour of church tomorrow we will interview him during the 3rd and then he can get baptized after church. We called Sister Muay who is his member girlfriend because we didn't think he was ready yet and asked her what she thought about him getting baptized tomorrow. She said it wasn’t possible he still hasn't stopped smoking completely and other things. He is busy with work and has a big problem with the word of wisdom so we just need to help him with that. It is hard though because he is never free and we only been able to meet with him one time and we taught him about half of what he needed to learn, which is a lot. So we have been planning on teaching him the rest of everything since we never know when he will be able to meet with us again because of his crazy schedule. As for other investigators we found a new one this week. Her name is Bubae! She is 22 years old and works at place that makes glasses. She seems interested and we have been able to meet with her once, but she wants to get baptized. She really wants to learn so we can help her with that for sure. We have an appointment with her tonight and so we will be teaching her and giving her a baptismal date for the 13th of April. It should go good!
I really don't have much else to tell you we only had 38 people at church last Sunday which was horrible, but it was because everyone had to "vote" yesterday I guess they had another voting day. So everyone just decided they didn't need to come to church because they had to go vote which takes only 5 minutes! It is all good though. We got a new branch president yesterday here in Nong Khai. Our old one got married to a member in another providence so he moved down to Roi et with her so now we have a new one named, Brother Paybun. Pretty crazy stuff though. Oh and I never told you that I am the Branch Pianist ha-ha! I have been doing for a while now and I mess up all the time, but I'm the best we have. I just don't like playing the piano when I know I can't play the song very well, I always get nervous.
We did go ice skating in Udorn last p-day with Brother Gang which was fun. We also went inviting one day at the mall for about five hours which was crazy. We didn't get any new investigators but it was just was fun for some reason even though we didn't have a lot of success. That is all I have for you guys, sorry the letter is kind of short, have a good week! :)
