I've seen so many miracles, and just met such amazing people.


This week we had our District and Zone Conference in Roi Et! Which is about 3 hours away. 
Saturday we had a big activity for all of the members and it honestly was just so much fun! There was over 300 members that came from all over the Ubon and Roi-et zones. It turned out so good too! 
Then on Sunday we had the equivalent of a Stake Conference session with about 600+ members who came to that one. It was honestly the coolest thing. To see how the church is growing here!! There was a primary aged boy who gave a talk in the meeting (11 years old) and it was touching to see President and Sister Seniors face. They got really emotional hearing this boy testifying that he knows Jesus Christ. Also, Elder Conacon (sp?), the first khon Thai to be a member of the Seventy, was at the conference. And he got really emotional as well. I just can't imagine how incredible this must be for them to witness!! The work really is progressing here.
Then on Sunday night we had our Missionary Devotional. So all the missionaries from the Ubon and RoiEt zones met at the church to watch "Meet the Mormons"! It was so cool for all of the missionaries that haven't seen it yet. Everyone loved it. I also really like watching it again. This has been the third time I've seen it seen being on my mission. 555 Still good.
Then on Monday we had Zone Conference, which was our training from President Senior. 
He explained the new initiative the church is doing in regards to Easter. #BecauseHeLives video is going to launch on March 27th I think. He showed us the new video, and it was really beautifully done. I might have teared up a little...555 I swear since being on this mission I have just gotten way more emotional!! That's probably a good thing though. 
I honestly am just so blessed. I won't ever be able to explain the feelings I have accurately but the growth I have seen in myself is something irreplaceable. 
I would never give up the experiences I have had for anything. As I look back on my journal over these almost 6 months, I can't believe how incredible my life has been here. 
I've seen so many miracles, and just met such amazing people. I love this work, and above all I love my Savior.
1 Corinthians 15:22 - " in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."
Have a great week everyone.
Love you!
