....which means we didn't go to Bangkok this week. We just stayed in Sisaket and got destroyed by a huge rain storm. 5555
Literally never been so wet in my life. Got to love biking areas. It has rained pretty much every day this week. And on Saturday night the power in our house went out which also meant we have no water either. Luckily after calling around we found someone to come fix it. Apparently, there was literally just a switch you had to flip and everything would work again. Unfortunately, we didn't know that so for 45 minutes we just sat in the dark.
Also, on Saturday though was Sister กิกส birthday so we took her out to lunch. Just literally ate a bunch of ส้มตำ which I love, so that was fun.
We got a new District Leader! Elder Howard. He is from Lehi, Utah and is from Sister Ong's MTC group. So he is just about to pass his year mark on the mission. I think he will be great for Sisaket.
Other than that, this week has been pretty low key. Just inviting a lot and teaching. We are working on finding new investigators. Right now, we are teaching Sister Joy. She is the mom of a member here, and she is so cute. She is in her 40s but we kind of have to teach her like a child because within the last 20 years something has happened to her mentally and so she has to take a lot of pills to help cope. Because I can't speak doctor Thai, I actually have no idea what it is, but all I know is that she is so cute. She loves singing Hymns and praying. So we do a lot of that when we go visit her. 555 I literally just can't explain to you how much I love her, and watching Sister Sihabut work with her too is so cool for me.
It's moments like that, that make being a missionary so worth it!
Quote of the week: "Spiritual confidence increases when you accept that 'often trials and tribulations are allowed to come into your life because of what you are doing right."' (Elder Klebingat G.C. Oct. 2014)
Read this talk this morning during personal study. I finished reading all of Apr. 2015 conference talks, so I started reading Oct. 2014 again. This talk just happened to be the one I read today and it really was a tender mercy for me. I highly recommend reading it.
I hope you all have a great week.
