|Skyping with our boys...What a Happy Mother's Day for me and Jeff!!!|
Elder Landon J Watkins Week 100
Week Four in Chiang Mai
Monday, May 11, 2015
This was a good last week! Sorry this will be a shorter email because of skyping today. First I would like to start off with telling you all Happy Mother's Day! :)
This last week was just full of traveling and switch offs! Tuesday we were able to meet with our new investigators John and Beam who accepted dates for baptism on the 17th because this Sunday they will be headed down to Bangkok. They are 28 and 29 year old friends and ready. After teaching them we got tickets for the train down to Bangkok which is a long 14 hours, but we made it to the office around 6 p.m.!
We had Missionary Leadership Council which was actually really awesome because Elder Gong the Asia Area President came and it was super awesome. He is such a smart guy and just puts a cool outlook on the gospel. We also had one of the senior couples from Nepal here too, because they have been taken out of the country temporarily because of the earthquake.
That night we headed up to Phitsnalok and got a couple hours of sleep on their floor. We decided to do a double switch off with Kamphaegphet and Phitsnalok so I went to Kamphaengphet for the day. That night took a bus back to Chiang Mai and got home at 5:30 a. m. so I finally got an hour of sleep in my bed.
We had really only two days to work this week; Friday and Saturday. We met with our investigators Run and Gay who have dates to be baptized on the 24th but we are going to try for the 17th this week also so hopefully we can get 4 baptisms this week.
We had Asia Area Conference on Sunday which was pretty cool and Elder Nelson spoke so that was pretty sweet. We had a good turnout… 212 people, but there were a lot more tourists than usual so we should have more than that next week between the two branches!
Today we might head to the Zoo, but we will see; it was a good week! Love you all!
