"Hello everyone!! This week has been CRAZY busy.....so, I'm afraid this will be kind of a short letter. We had an AWESOME baptism and have another scheduled for the 29th! The spirit was INCREDIBLE! I am LOVING my mission!"
Brother Somgiad from the Ward - love this guy!
"I didn't get anything back from the doctor in Bangkok yet.....they haven't told me anything. I'm guessing they will get back to me this next week. My knee is alright....it feels like I'm okay to keep on keepin' on. I just feel like I need to get it fixed before I go too hard on it. It's kind of messed with my working out, but I'm sure it will all work out fine."
"So, this week we went to Ubon to work with the Zone Leaders. It was great and we got a lot done. I don't like missing days working out of Sisaket because we have so much going, but I learn a lot from the ZL's. So it's all good.."

"Brother Dang in our Ward....he's awesome!"

"This week, I've really been trying to focus in on my goals for the future....school, career....I am learning to balance staying completely focused on my mission, but still take a little bit of time every day to improve myself in all areas of my life....improving my vocabulary, getting stronger physically and my nutrition. Sometimes I do really great at it and other days I completely fail...but I'll keep after it."

"We have taught some really cool lessons this week with our investigator, Sister Meaw. She committed to baptism on the 29th of this month. She is AMAZING and is the BEST example of how important member referrals are. She was referred to us by an awesome member in the Ward when we went to do a service project to help them with their cows. She committed to quit drinking coffee and bore her testimony to us that she's tried several times before to quit, but never could until she prayed and asked for help! I LOVE EXPERIENCING these amazing, cool experiences! The Gospel of Jesus Christ is true....."

"Well, I gotta go soon Mom....I'm gonna get ripped, smart, skilled and spiritual....hahaha! But seriously! I have such a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ! I'm thankful for this opportunity.....it's so great that I get to teach these people that the Lord's work and glory is to help all of his children have happiness! Then we get to give them the tools to show them how...it just doesn't get any better than this."
"I love you Mom! I love you Dad! I'm loving' my mission.....until next week...."
