Hey Everyone!
This was an awesome and wild week! So Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday was just getting prepared to head off to Bangkok and all that good stuff! Nothing to special happened we taught and met with Sister Ern a few times, but now she is off in China again! I'm so glad that I was able to stay here in Roi Et.
Check out who I found on the end of the second row at transfer meeting on the Thailand Mission Facebook page!
Well, I'm sure you are all wondering who my new companion is and all that stuff, but guess what you already know him! I'm way excited for this new transfer. It is so awesome to be reunited as companions with Elder Keller again and we were MTC companions! He is way awesome and we are getting along great already seeing miracles beginning to happen!

We had Sister Ay get baptized yesterday which was awesome and our zone saw 5 baptisms; it is so great!

We are going to start focusing here on making miracles happens instead of waiting for them to happen. Yesterday we started making a list of members who need to renew temple recommends or members who are strong and active who have never been to the temple. We also are getting prospective Melchizedek Priesthood holders ready for the up and coming district conference.  We met with the Branch President and figured out his schedule and are going to call all these people and set up interviews. We have 37 people that should have temple recommends just here in Roi Et and we need 1000. We are at 811 so if we can add that many from each branch we will have way more than 1000.

We had a new investigator at church yesterday named; Bay she is way awesome and accepted a date for baptism this next Sunday she is so ready! At church we had 119 people; 23 RC; and 3 investigators in our companionship! It wasn't a bad day at all! Our district had 3 baptisms, so the work is picking up here in Roi Et!

Sorry this week my letter is kind of short because of traveling! This week we will be headed down to Bangkok again for a Missionary Leadership Council and get some training. That should be way awesome and I am super excited! Things are going good though! Have a great week!
