Hey, how's it going?
This was a pretty good last week! Tuesday night we headed down to Bangkok for Missionary Leadership Council where all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders come together and meet with President Senior. It was pretty good and he gave our mission more directions in working with families and it was a good motivation and energy booster for all of us. The food was amazing as usual. They had a pancake breakfast for us with Buttermilk syrup and fruit which was way good. For lunch, Sister Senior made us homemade tacos with chips and salsa wow it was incredible. I haven't had anything like that in such a long time. It reminded me of having tacos with Grandma Berlin. We made it home at 2 in the morning and were able to get a little bit of sleep in our own beds.
This week has been a little rough, but I've been able to keep fighting through it. I've been sick since last Monday and now I've lost my voice, so inviting has been a little hard, but I've managed to squeak a few words out and find some people. We have two really awesome investigators right now and they are both going to be baptized on the 29th; Bay and Na. Bay was going to get baptized this week, but she ended up having to go to Bangkok for work and since this coming Sunday is District Conference we won't be having a baptismal service. Also, we have Na; who has been to church 3 times and accepted a date yesterday for the 29th. What makes them awesome is that they are both families! They are both Mom's and have about a 6 year old daughter and they already invited us to begin teaching their husbands! It's way awesome. We also received a referral this week and she is a single Mom; named Juk and her husband has just recently passed away and she has two sons 14 and 12 years old. She invited us over to her house to begin teaching her family I'm so excited to be working with these families. Anyways, the families are coming in!
Zone Conference should be great this week. I am super excited for it and we've have everything mostly planned, booked, and ready to go! On Thursday we spent most of our day arranging meals, etc. for Zone Conference and finding 17 hotel rooms for all the missionaries to stay in and all the good stuff!
Friday I did a switch off with Elder Davis who is Elder Mitchell’s MTC companion so that was a fun day.
Sunday the only person we had at church was Na, but she was awesome. We had 101 people at church this week which was kind of low, but what can you do! District Conference is here next week so that should be fun and exciting!
Sorry not too much for you this week!
