Thailand Week 16: Korat

Rawr.

videoMabuhay! I love you guys. :)

It is amazing that everything is always based off on faith. As long as
we keep the faith and hope that God will provide a way to do His work,
it will happen.

This past week has been quite an adventure.

- Went to ร้อย เอ็ด... again. We had a zone training so that following
morning we let ร้อย เอ็ด and headed to กาฬสินธุ์! The land of the
Dinosaurs! Elder Reid and I were able to take several pictures. :)
Training was great. The zone leaders helped me understand that God is
the one that is making all of this happen! I am just an instrument of
the Lord. It was a very humbling experience.

Oh! And the zone leaders gave me my package! I loved everything!!!
Especially the letters. *sigh* The Lord is good man. :) I am glad that
all is well at home.

I'll be cooking ramen and corned beef pretty soon. Hahaha.

I love miracles.
This past week, I felt a powerful spiritual prompting. The Holy Ghost
telling me to be brave and courageous at all times(specifically during
inviting and calling investigators/members)!!! It was an intense
feeling. I was hesitant at first but I followed the prompting.
We only had one inviting session this past week due to our busy
schedule. But it was awesome! During the 2 hours of inviting, I was
able to talk to have many open conversations. I never saw myself being
able to communicate with khon Thais or having a decent conversation
with them. But I did it and because I followed the prompting of the
Spirit, I was able to receive 20 numbers/potential investigators.The
following day, I again felt the prompting to call them. Initially I
offered Elder Reid to call them but he obviously turned down the
offer. I then called all of the numbers. Out of the 20 numbers, I was
able to set up appointments for two of the potential investigators. I
should also mention that 4 of the numbers were fake. Hahah. I love the
work. It's great.

"Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every
creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish;
yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endless
torment did cause them to quake and tremble." - Mosiah 28:3

I read this talk today. Loved it. If you have nothing to do... Read it. :)

There's so much happening and I am loving every minute of it. I love
God. I love His Gospel. I love everything and everyone in the world.
