Elder Xaiyavong and I are staying in Lopburi! Yay!!! But we split up into two separate companionship and each got a new companion. My companion is Elder Larson. He is from Texas and he is the BOMB! I love him. He so eager to learn and share the gospel with everyone!!!
That night after I got transfer call, I remember thinking to myself... "What? I am going to train? I am going to be DL?" I had this feeling that I wouldn't be able to do it. That I wasn't able capable to do so. I felt really unprepared. I still don't know my scriptures as good as I wanted to. I still am not at good at Thai. It was after a long prayer, that I realize that I litterally had this feeling at the beginning of EVERY transfer. Haha. I remember thinking that I wouldn't be able to be an effective missionary with Elder Xai, a Laos missionary, because my Thai wasn't that good. But I got through it, I gave it my all. I came to realize that it's a great privilege to realize how much President Johnson trusts me and that as long as I give it my all and do my best... That's all that matters. :)
Love this scripture...
"8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:8,9
In these past 9 months, my ability to really trust in the Lord has grown to a point that I am enjoying the fact that the Lord is shaping me and molding me to be what He wants me to be. I know that I am not perfect. But it'll all work out... :)
I know that this is the true Church of God. I know that we all are a part of this amazing work of bring souls unto Him and building the Kingdom of God. Jesus is the Christ. He is our Savior and Redeemer. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
I AM SOOO EXCITED FOR CHRISTMASSS!!! AHHH!!! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! I think I'll be saying this in every email until Christmas actually comes. Haha
