Long Bus Rides, Training, and the Twins Baptized!

Elder Landon J Watkins Week 98
Week Two in Chiang Mai

Hey Everyone!

Sorry this week will be a little bit short of an email because we don't have a ton of time!

Anyways this week was so crazy ha-ha! First of all the Chiang Mai zone is the biggest zone in the mission so going to other areas in the zone takes a lot of time to travel to! The AP's called us on Tuesday and told us they were coming up to Chiang Mai to give us some special training and then do a switch off. So on Wednesday Elder Crump and Elder Tanner came up; the AP's gave us some training and we switched off and I got to be with Elder Crump for a day; it was way awesome! We went to eat at Duke's together; which is an American food restaurant that all the missionaries talk about and say how good it was, so I finally got to experience it for myself; it was way good! I had a BBQ chicken pizza and some hot wings! 

Wednesday morning we had to start traveling around our zone to give the training so we went up to Chiang Rai which was a 3 hour bus ride to get there. It was great because I got to see Elder Mitchell (who Landon trained) again he's awesome. Then right after we headed back to Chiang Mai and did training Chiang Mai and we had Lampang come up and trained them too. 

Friday we woke up at 3:30 a.m. to get on a bus at 5 a.m. to go down to Phitsanulok which is a 6 hour bus ride away. We figured there would be some public transportation to take us to the bus station early in the morning, but we couldn't find a thing so we ended up running 2 or 3 kilos before we finally found one and barely made it on time to our bus. We got there and did training and got right back on a bus back to Chiang Mai. We left at 1 p.m. and figured we would get back by 7 p.m.; nope ha-ha we got back at 9 because it started raining really hard and our bus broke down; so it was a long trip ha-ha.

Saturday we finally got to do some work to get ready for Sunday.

As far as investigators go we don't have too many to be honest; but the good news is that the twins were baptized yesterday! It was way awesome! We were able to meet with them twice and their Dad baptized them; it was really cool! We only have one other dater and good investigator right now because I gave an awesome investigator to the sisters that I found who will be getting baptized this Sunday. But we have Bro. Brin who is 16 years old and he has a date for the 10th of May; he is doing awesome. He just has to come to Sacrament 4 times before he can get baptized because he's under 18; but he's so good!

Today we are heading off to a mountain and the Zoo so I'll let you know how that goes!

Love you all; have an awesome week!
