Week 33 in Field!

Last Monday, we took Sister Nuan to Sister Emelda's home for Family Home Evening.
Sister Nuan was baptized not too long ago and didn't really know how to have FHE in her own home, so we decided that it would beneficial to take her to an experienced member's home.
It was such a special experience!
Sister Emelda is Filipino, and Sister Nuan is Burmese, but as these two sisters got to know each other using Thai, the music of the gospel took all cultural barriers down and filled the two sisters with love for each other and the gospel.
Sister Emelda is a wonderful example to those around her, so full of compassion and true Christlike love.
She poured out her heart to Sister Nuan, explaining that we are not just friends, but family, in Heavenly Father's Kingdom. 
She shared her own experiences to encourage and uplift Sister Nuan in her first steps in the gospel. 
It was so reassuring to see a more experienced member reach out to someone who has been recently converted.
I was so filled will love for these two amazing sisters and gratitude for the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

One morning, I caught our ZLs trying to break into our home...
Well, actually, they were just trying to return one of our bikes...
But it was still pretty amusing to see Elder Bunker scale over the wall to catch the bike from the inside.

This is the most ugly, weird statue I have ever seen... 

Our weekly trip up to the mountains!

Sister Nok gave us two more referrals: this blind man and his son!
Despite their traditional looking house...they have a computer in their home. 

We had the privilege of helping some of the villagers put together flower bunches! 

We received a rose for our service ~

On Saturday, I got to spend my day with Sister Htway!
I helped her practice her song for Zone Conference around noon, and because we didn't get a chance to switch back companions, we stayed switched off the whole day.
What a privilege it was to serve with my buddy from the MTC!
It was rewarding to see how far the both us have come and to serve alongside a Sister who has a strong, beautiful testimony of the gospel.

Right now in Thailand, it's rainy season...
It rains everyday and we are constantly soaking wet! 
What a fun adventure it really is ^^

Brother Noi is a member who is preparing to get his leg amputated.
I am amazed that each time we see him, he has a smile on his face.
For someone who is about to lose his leg, he has such a bright outlook on life!
He even has a parrot friend just like a pirate!
He's probably the nicest pirate on the face of the planet!
