Season Greetings From Thailand!!
Oh it was such an amazing week!!!! So much to tell you about! Last Tuesday-Friday we had companion exchanges! It was so much fun! Sister Wanlapa went to Royette and Sister Johnson came to me in Udon! She is one of the sisters from the MTC that was in the group after mine. She is so darling and it really was SO much fun! It was weird being the senior companion. Dont know how I feel about it. But it was definitely a great learning experience for me! It was so weird speaking English all day too. One of the mornings we went to the park and did Thai Chi with all the old people! Oh man. I'm not even joking when I say it was one of the most fun things I have done here!! The instructor came up to us after and said in the cutest english, "Come back tomorrow. And everyday." haha it was so darling! I definitely want to do that again! Well me and Sis. Johnson did lots of inviting and lots of laughing. So many things I've forgotten about from the MTC and such since I don't really talk about stuff like that with Sis. Wanlapa. Well Friday was ZONE CONFERENCE!!! Yay!! We met Sister Wanlapa and Sister Hirschi there! Man. I missed Sister Wanlapa so much! She really is like on of my best friends now! We gotten so close these last couple days! Anyways, Zone Conference was so amazing. Like I felt the spirit so strong! We all bore our testimony in a minute or less at the end I really felt the spirit, like burning in my heart! So cool. It was on Companion Unity and how we need to be better at planning and writing in the area book. Something me and Sis aren't very good at :) so it was good to her it. There was also a Dr. Linford there, him and his wife serve in Hong Kong. He came and talked to us about staying healthy and having a clean house. It was funny. :) I love getting together with all the missionaries! So good! It made me all exicted for Transfers this Wednesday! Except not excited because Sister Wanlapa is most likely getting transferred so sad day. :( Well Sunday was a fun day too! It was kinda like Stake Conference. Branches from Guppawapy, Saghonnakon, Nong Khai, Udon 1 and 2, and the branch in Laos came!! it was AWESOME!! So cool to see all the members! Sister Wanlapa is from Sagonnakon and so that was way fun for her to see all the members! The weather here is back to hot :) it was a nice winter while it lasted! I can't believe it is snowing at home!! So cool! Well last night was so cool! It was like the 4th of July in Thailand! Me and Sister Wanlapa "happened" to drive past the park and it was just like trying to get out of Weber State's parking lot after the fireworks there! There were SO many people! It was so cool! It is some Thai tradition to light off lanterns, they are so cool! they like float up in the sky! The whole sky was filled with them! And it was a full moon! So it was so beautiful! There were a couple fireworks even too. Then there were the coolest flower candles that they put into the pond! So much to look at! I wish I could have taken some good pictures! Well that is about all I have for this week. I just love being a missionary so much! I'm so happy! The church is so true!! Thank you so much for all your loves, prayers, emails, letters and support!! You are all the best!! Sure love you all!!
