I feel like this is my home now.

Here's to the new transfer! 

I am staying in P'lok with Sister Alley!! 

So happy about that honestly. I love it here it P'lok! I can't imagine living anywhere else. I feel like this is my home now. Technically we moved houses on Thursday at the start of the new transfer though because all of our four Elders from our district white washed out! AND 2 new sisters replaced them! So now we have 4 Sisters in this area, and 2 Elders! Which meant we had to switch houses with the Elders. (Yes, that is as scary as it sounds.) The house was absolutely disgusting. As Sister Alley and I were cleaning, we kept thinking about how it couldn't get any worse, and then somehow it would. I regret not taking a picture. Everything is nice and clean now though! So no worries. This house is actually a lot home-ier (if that is a word), and I am really starting to like it! I feel like this is going to be a really great transfer! The work is moving along, and we are trying our best to just keep everything organized this transfer.

I am so happy to be here. And to hear that Rina is in หนองคาย!! I am so happy for her! She sound's like she loves it. I love hearing her email's every week! We had President and Sister Senior come for special training yesterday, which is why our P-day is on Tuesday today, and I just love them. I just love Thailand! Sorry my letter is really short this week. We are just so busy here in P'lok! 
I hope everyone is happy! Love you all! 

Here is a scripture from my personal study this morning: 3 Nephi 22:7 - "For a small moment have I forsaken thee, but with great mercies will I gather thee." 

Life is HARD. No matter what. Life is going to be hard, and sometimes it even feels as if we are being forsaken. But I know that God loves His children, and that no matter how hard it gets, the feeling of being gathered by the great mercy of God with make up for the deepest of pain we have felt. I love my Heavenly Father, and Savior.
