Week 77: Love God

Hello family and friends! What a week. I feel like I need to just take a moment sometimes and realize what a blessing it is to be able to serve as a missionary here in Thailand! Elder Miyagi and I have some awesome investigators that we're working with right now and the Lord has truly blessed us. We've been inviting at a place near a huge mall called The Mall Bangkapi. There's tons and tons of people there. Before inviting in that area one day, we met a Swedish guy named Jacob who goes to school here in Bangkok. He spoke English and was just so nice to us. The Lord has people prepared for His missionaries to teach and I love finding someone who is humble and willing to meet!

For those who might not know, I'm serving in my fourth area and I've been here since August. It's been a long time but I've come to really like it here and I've made some great friends. Sister Uud, Buy, and Gif are doing great. Sister Uud got baptized yesterday and she bore a powerful testimony at her baptism as well. She's so full of faith and a desire to follow the Savior and I know that her life will be so much better because of this gospel. She was baptized by the one and only Brother Art. Sister Gif and her identical twin, Saguy, are doing well and progressing. Saguy brought one of her friends, Butter (yes, that's his name) to church and he's way awesome. As for Sister Buy, she has a baptismal date for January 29th. She's so nice! She gives me so much food. She quit tea already and even though I think it was hard for her, she was still determined to do so. There's plenty of work to be done here in the great area of Bangkapi and many miracles ahead. 

Well I just can't explain some of the joy I've felt since serving here in Bangkapi. I love, love, love seeing my investigators get baptized. I LOVE baptism. You can never have too much of it. Every person is special to God. I feel like everyone deserves to know who they truly are. We are children of God. Heavenly Father really loves us and He wants us to return to live with Him again. We need to love Him. "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." Isn't that so cool? As we show our love for Heavenly Father, we will have fuller lives. I hope you all have a great week! The church is true.
