Week 35 in Field!

FHE at Sister Nuan's home with two other lovely Sisters from our Branch! 
Sister Sheh, Sister Nuan and Sister Suay are three exemplary women of service! 
They have so much love for the gospel and everyone around them. 
Don't they just glow?!

One day this past week, we decided to go serve Sister Barlow (One of the Senior Missionaries in Chiang Mai) by visiting her home.
She has been sick for several weeks, and hasn't really been around. (I can count the number of times I've seen her on one hand since I have been transferred to Chiang Mai)
So, we decided that we would bake cookies and spend some time getting to know her. 
It was such a blessing to be able to get to know another valuable member in our district and to learn from her endless wisdom and experiences!
It was so nice to see a big smile on her face too ^^

More service this week!
My companion and I have not had the heart to drop one of investigators who isn't progressing very much at all.
She lives in a pile of garbage, in this broken down home because she collects recyclables and sells them to a recycling company.
Because she wasn't really understanding what we were teaching, and we could feel that her heart was not yet opened, we decided that we would serve her and help her feel loved.
We stop by her house now and then to help sort her bottles, containers, paper and cans. 
Slowly, but surely, she has warmed up to us and we can feel that she appreciates our help and company each time we go over.
As I have been able to serve her, my love for her has grown too!
I know that charity, and the language of love has no boundaries! 
It's what can draw us all closer together as Children of God. 

And more service at MEE Jan's home/workplace! 
We helped her clean and hold laundry..


How many Elders does it take to transport a piano?

I had the pleasure of talking with Sister Ellsworth after my interview with President Johnson on Sunday.
Sister and Elder Ellsworth are in charge of Humanitarian Aid here in Thailand.
Sister Ellsworth and I shared our experiences of how service opens doors!
Learning to speak the language of love is so important because it is the key to Heavenly Father's work here on the Earth. 
Without it, we wouldn't be able to go very far.
We need to learn to look at everyone through Heavenly Father's eyes. 

Today for PDAY, we went on a trip as an entire district for the first (and probably the last-transfers are in just a couple days) time.

Elder Bunker (our Sloth): I got you a leaf! 

Our first (and probably last) district picture this transfer!!
