Hello!! Today is the prettiest day! Me and Sister Eyestone went for a bike ride this morning in the mountains. You should google "Doi Suthep." Its a way pretty wat at the top of the mountains. Anyways me and Sister Eyestone "attempted" riding out bikes up there. Haha we started out doing great! Until we saw a sign that said it was still 11km away. The song, "There is a green hill far away" came to my mind. Well we coulda made it...but we decided to stop and wonder around the junglish forests. We found this way beautiful waterfall! So pretty! I love Chiang Mai so much!
Well this last week was so great!! It felt like we didn't really get much done, but last night we went over the week and talked about everything and we really did get a lot done! And when I say "we" I mean, Heavenly Father and us. It is so wonderful being a missionary and seeing the Lords hand in all things! I can truly testify that I know that without the Lords help we would get nothing done. Isn't it crazy that the church sends out 19 year old boys and 21 year old girls to declare repentance unto the world... The church is so true!! I was reading Alma 5 today. I love that chapter!! verses 43-46 and 49 are my favorite! Plus in verse 49 I changed "in the land" to say "in thailand" haha. So cool.
Last week we went and rode elephants!! Finally! It was SO much fun!! Haha I loved it! I'm definitely buying an elephant someday! Think of how handy that would be! :) On Friday it was Sister Eyestone's birthday too mom! So I woke up and made her rice pudding and french toast!! It was so much fun! Plus we had fresh mango's from our tree, bananas, pineapples and kiwis! I love fruit so much!! Anyways it was a way fun day! Then Saturday night the ward had a little party for her too! So sweet! One of the ladies made a heavenly chocolate cake! Oh it was so good! And spaghetti too! Yeah for having a companion that has a birthday!
Yesterday at church was SO great! We had a couple families there. Well two moms and they both had two little kids. Here is a little shout out to all you mothers out there: YOU ARE AMAZING!! I don't know how you handle all the little kids at church. Sacrament meeting wasn't so bad. But the little kids all refused to go to nursery. The one mom just ended up playing with her two daughters in an empty classroom with another member. The other mom just took them to class with her. I felt bad cuz I don't think they got much out of the lesson. But I was just praying so hard that they would feel the spirit! Getting investigators to church is probably one of the most stressful things, but making sure they have a good experience is even harder! But it is so worth it! I love this ward too! In Sunday school it was THE BEST LESSON!! The branch president talked about sharing the gospel with our friends. It was quite the smack down. He had other members talk about experiences they have had with sharing the gospel. It really was so great! And then we sang "Called To Serve" after! Oh I just felt the spirit so strong! It was so awesome! I love being a missionary so much! I'm so happy! The church is so true!! Thank you so much for all your emails and love and support and prayers and oh I just love you all so much!!!!! Thanks so much for being so great!! Love you all!!
