Elder Landon J Watkins Week 94
Week Sixteen in Roi Et
Monday, March 30, 2015
This was a pretty awesome past week!
On Monday we went to a science center museum kind of place which was pretty cool so that is the majority of the pictures are from this week!
Anyways, this past week we were just so busy trying to teach everyone and have time for the things we needed to do!
Our main priority this last week was teaching Sister Bai so she could get baptized and it went very smoothly she was so awesome and had no concerns. She was baptized!
We were also pushing for Sister Na and we were supposed to meet with her, but she ended having to go out of town for work so we pushed her date to this next week.
The Cambodian guys in Sisaket gave us a referral of their friend that lives here in Roi Et and we got to meet with him and he accepted a date to be baptized on the 5th. He's way awesome and came to church yesterday and for the baptism! His only concern is not working on Sunday, but he already said he'd ask for it off! So pray that he can get Sundays off so he can be baptized next week!
We also are working with Naan, he came to District Conference last Sunday. We met with him on Saturday and he is pretty awesome. He is preparing to be baptized on the 5th also and we are going to start working with his family (his wife and daughter). He has some problems with the Word of Wisdom with smoking, and also he drinks tea and coffee so we are praying to help him quit these things; he is really smart and understands it. The only problem I think he may have will just be getting rid of Buddhism. He stayed for the 3 hours of church and the baptism too.
Our other person we are working with for this Sunday is Moli she is the Mom of a RC. We got in contact with her a few weeks ago at an FHE at the RC's house. We left her a Book of Mormon and last week she came to the District Conference Adult Session, so that was cool. We went and taught her at her home and she was very open. She came to church yesterday. We are preparing her to be baptized on the 5th also and her son will be able to baptize her; it should be so awesome! Her only concern is telling these other Christian people that come and teach her every Sunday that they can't come anymore. The awesome thing is they leave her all these books and have invited her to their things and for a year now and she's never read a thing or gone to anything. We left her that Book of Mormon and she has been reading it every day since and she is already in 2 Nephi; it's so cool.
So as you can see we are shooting for 4 baptisms this next week and it is totally possible we had an awesome week at church! We had 122 people in Sacrament with 29 RC's. My companionship had 8 investigators which was also great! Sister Bai was baptized and the Sisters had 2 baptisms. Now next month our goal is 3 baptisms per companionship so that is what we are working for. The other goal is the video “Because He lives”, we are trying to get 100,000 people in Thailand to watch the video by next Sunday, it is awesome and the members are loving it. We have an Easter activity planned on Saturday.
