Nov 6: break through

Happy Birthday to Sister Jackson, Reagan and Serena!!!! <3 Love you all.

Saturday: Turned out be a scary halloween after all! Hair cuts!!! The guy that cut my hair.. haha was awesome. His taste in music will describe him perfectly: Metallica. I had to fix my hair later at home.. But for the most part. He did okay :P

Sunday: Met a cool new investigator named Julie from Denmark. She lived in Utah for a year as a foreign exchange student and lived with a mormon family. She said that she has always loved the feeling of church. That it just feels like such a big family. On moving back to Denmark she was able to sneak to church 4 times, as her parents were strongly against it. And is excited to now be in Thailand able to make her own decisions..... I smell miracles! :) The English ward ward amazes me every week. People who actually do their calling. The church in Thailand is till pretty young. And the Asoke branch- although it was the first branch in Thailand.. it is struggling for sure. 

Monday: Pakistani Mondays.Got to read in 1 Nephi 1 with Synthia. It was so cool She doesn't speak very good English so she ahs a hard time understanding the BOM.. & she can't read/write in Urdu so we have stopped after reading every single verse and explained it to her. She loved it. I noticed while Iw as reading and explaining that I was so incredibly happy. i was so happy to be reading and sharing out of the BOM. That book is so special. Went to visit Samaya and Aamir. They are so special. Prayers for Samaya. She is very sick.

Tuesday: cool moment today. Some gril randomly walked into the church as we were  about to leave and asked if we could answer a few questions regarding the church's stance on gay marriage as she was preparing a report for a religion class. i was so impressed while she asked questions taht we were able to answer every single one and back it up with scriptures and words of modern day prophets. It was a testament to me that God's plan really is central to the family. Starting w/ Man and woman. Her last question was - will the church's stance ever change? Andre was a strong spirit in the air as we explained that God is the same, yesterday, today and forever.

Wednesday: MLC happened again! I love President Johnson. The meeting was one desires. "when we have a vision of what we can BECOME our desire and our power to act increase enormously." Dallin H Oaks. There were many answers to prayers during that meeting. Some of which came not even through the words that were said.. But because the spirit was so strong. And because we had been preparing for the training.

Thursday: Taught Bro Frank.. He is our only khon Thai investigator.. We are making some break throughs with him. Little by little. :) Got to go to Bang Khae to train! Nothing has changed over there! It was so strange to go int he church.. Feels like I was just there yesterday. Where has 6 weeks gone? We got to skype Julie! As she lives in Chon Buri.. 4 hours away. She is way cool. 

Friday: Another training. Something learned this week: Big picture in life is sometimes lost in the fret of little things that pile up around us.. My ponderize this week helped inspire me to remember just how little our "piles" are.. Mosiah 4:9

Believe in God ; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom , and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend. 

Saturday: Today is sister Alley's last P day. Next week = transfers. When did that happen?

The work is true.
I love being a missionary.
Sister Coates

Also forgot to mention we had the cutest lunch date EVER with Sister Johnson and Sister Stoker at The Hatter... coollest place eer.
