Our Saviors Love!!!‏

THE TWINS ARE HERE!!! YEAH!! This morning for some reason I was just extra excited to come email and now I know why!! Its because I needed to come find out that the twins were born!! Yeah!! Summer you are such a champ!! I'm so proud of you!! I'm so proud of ALL you mothers!! Thank you so much for being such great examples to me! Well I'm so glad all is well in Zion!! :) Things here are just fabulous like always! Someone in Heaven turned the sprinklers on and it has been raining the last couple of days. But we don't mind! It is still beautiful here!! We go to Bangkok this week to renew our visas, either Sister Eyestone or I am probably gonna get bounced from Chiang Mai so next week I'll let ya know! I love it here so much! I love the people so much too! But it is crazy how fast things change in the missionary world. One day you are on top of the world and thinking all of your investigators are going great! And then the next you feel like you don't have anyone. Kinda how we felt yesterday at church, it was raining really hard ( bad excuse if you ask me) but none of our investigators were able to make it to church. Disappointed? Yes. Defeated? Never!! That just means we will work extra hard this week!! I feel like right now we are kinda going through all our investigators and the ones that aren't really progressing we are going to just put them on the shelf for a little bit and go find some newbies!!

Last Monday me and Sister Eyestone went over to our land ladies house and made pumpkin bread, apple bread and papaya bread!! I must admit, it was quite delicious! And so much fun! We also made some s'mores!!! We roasted the s'mores while I cooked the pumpkin. So good!! We didn't find any graham crackers, but we found some amazing marshmallow's that had chocolate inside of them!!! The rest of the week we had fun delivering bread to members and investigators. (and giving the leftovers to the Elders at District Meeting :)

Friday we had an experience that taught me how amazing my little brother Scott is. We ran into this German man and started talking to him. And right away I could tell that he had had such a hard life and I felt so bad for him. He just seemed so bitter about life and had no hope. Anyways, I just look up to you so much Scott!! And Mike! and Dave!! And all my brothers and cousins!! :) You are all such great examples to me! I know that the Lord sent you to Germany because you can help all those poor souls who have been hurt and left hopeless!! Thank you everyone so much for all your letters and emails!! sure love you all!! I have the best family in the whole world!! I love being a missionary! I'm so happy! The church is so true!! Loves!!

In Humility Of Our Savior!!‏

OH IT IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY!!! I wish you all were here!! It is just absolutely gorgeous weather today!! Perfect 24th of July day! How is everyone doing?? This week was awesome!! So many stories I want to tell you! Firstly, Namtaan got baptized yesterday! Yeah!!! She is so darling and it was just such a special day! She brought one of her friends and she said she was interested so we are going to start teaching her too! Scott I totally agree with you. It is all about the Young Single Adults and them getting their friends to start learning! I look up to them so much, I can't even imagine being the only member in my family. They are so solid!

Speaking of family. I love you family!! This morning I was reading over the Family Proclaimation to the World. And I just love you all so much! I love you mom and dad!! I love you brothers and sisters! I love you grandparents! I love you aunts and uncles! I love you cousins! I love you nieces and nephews!! I love you all!! I love my Heavenly Father for blessing me with all of you!! I'm so grateful for the knowledge I have that I know I'll be with ALL of you FOREVER. FOREVER. FOREVER. (Pretend I'm saying that like the kid on The Sandlot :)

Also another random miracle story!! So...I love Thai food right. And I'm perfectly fine not eating American food. But ever since I've came into country I've missed bagels so much. Random food to miss I know, but hey. Anyways so the other night I was laying in bed and for some random reason I remembered the bagel sandwiches at the Old Grist Mill that me and Lauren used to always go get. And I was like oh! That sounds so good! And then I feel asleep. Well. I kid you not. That next day me and Sister Eyestone were out inviting and it was lunch time so we decided to stop at this way cute store called "Sister Sandwiches" I mean with a name like that how could we pass it by!! And guess what?!? they had bagel sandwiches!!!!!!! haha. I know you are all probably thinking I'm crazy. But hey. I think it was the Lord just giving me a little boost :)

Well...there are millions of other miracles that I would love to tell you all about! But I think that is all for today! Thank you all so much for all you all do for me!! I'm SO grateful and love you all SO much!! More than you'll ever know!! And don't worry I won't play with tigers anymore ;) Me and Sis today are going to see if we can find some gram crackers and marshmellows and see if we can whip up some smores!!! I'm so happy!! I love being a missionary! The church is so true!! Loves!!!

Another amazing week to be a missionary!!! I hope everyone had a great week and that all is going well!! Things here are fabulous!! Do you know in the scriptures sometimes Alma or Nephi will say that a hundredth part they haven't even written. Well basically that is how I feel. I wish all of you could just see and know all of these amazing experiences! But alas, I am not mighty in emailing...so this will have to do for now :)

This week we had a great Special Training from the Zone Leaders! President and Sister Smith and the Assistants came up for it too! It was on helping our investigators receive revelation through church attendance. It was real good. That is something that I've learned/grown to appreciate so much! I never realized how important it is to go to church. When we teach about the sacrament we explain how we are renewing our covenants that we made at baptism. Then I like to give an example about how as missionaries we have to go to Bangkok every three months to renew our visa or we can't go back home! And then tell them that is how it is with the sacrament. We have to go renew our "visa" to heaven or we CAN'T go back to our Father's Home. Yeah for the sacrament and yeah for church!!

At one of the big malls here in Chiang Mai there is a World Food Festival going on. We went a couple days ago and are going to go back today!! Such good food!! Well I love being a missionary! I'm so happy! The church is so true!! So love and miss you all! Thanks so much for everyone's emails!! And your love and prayers and support! I am the most blessed Sister missionary in the world!! :)

PS can I just brag about Scott for a minute :) There is an Elder Maple here, he lives by Rocky Mtn. Jr. High. When I found out he went to Fremont I asked if he knew Scott. "Scott is your little brother!!" he replied. "Sure is!!" I said. "I love that kid!!" he said. :) It just made my day to talk to someone who had nothing but good things to say about my dear baby brother!! I hope you know how much I love you Elder Chambers. I look up to you so much and I'm so proud of you!! I know that no matter where you go you leave such a great impression on people!! I hope I can be like you when I grow up someday!!

Also, Sidne he said that you were very sweet and nice to everyone too :) I told him, I know, she is my little sister :)

The Star-Spangled Banner!!‏

What a wonderful week to be a missionary!! Thank you so much for everyone's emails and your testimonies! I'm so excited to share them with the Thai people!! Thank you thank you!! Well I'm glad everyone had a fun, safe 4th! To celebrate...me and Sister Eyestone went to Sizzlers!! Oh so good so good! She got a giant hamburger, but Dad I couldn't bring myself to buying one. So I got a delicious chicken steak instead :) That night we had a way fun FHE with Sister Rin! We had Sister Daa, Sister Mote (yup they are the two cute girls that got baptized Davers) Bro. Ampon, he is getting baptized on the 31st, Sister Namtaan, she is getting baptized on the 24th, and Sister Ying. I look up to all of them so much! They are all in college right now, so me and Sister Eyestone have been joking about needing a Young Single Adult Branch up here in Chiang Mai! Sister Rin had made some way cute games up about the Book of Mormon and prophets and it was just a way fun night!

Everything here in Heaven is going well! Lately I have been reading a lot about Joseph Smith and the Liberty Jail and my testimony/admiration for him has just grown so much!! I know that in order for us to grow and come closer to Heavenly Father we all must have a little resistance. But I know that in the times of our tests and trials the Lord is with us and He is helping us step by step! Man, my life is soooo easy compared to the early saints! I feel so guilty! But it motivates me to work harder and harder and be a better missionary every day! I love being a missionary! I'm so happy! The church is so true!! I love you all and miss you and am so grateful for all you do for me!!! Loves!!

Oh Beautiful for Spacious Skies!!

Hello my amazing family and friends!!!

Happy Fourth of July from Thailand!!! I hope everyone has a fun, safe, day!! Me and Sister Eyestone are rocking it up here in Chiang Mai in our red, white, and blue outfits :) I just feel so grateful to be an American!! We are all so truly blessed!! I was reading today in 2 Nephi 10 and I just feel so grateful!! I think to celebrate today we are going to go eat hamburgers!! Although there isn't a hamburger in the world I'd rather eat right now than one of yours daddy!!

Well this last week has been so great! Just working hard and trying to keep dry :) The Lord is good to us and it usually just rains in the morning while we are studying and then in the afternoon while we are eating lunch! Perfect timing! The weather right now is my favorite! It feels so nice! Well I just want to glory in the Lord for a little bit and tell you that I know that the Lord truly does prepare His children to learn about His gospel. He knows each and everyone of us! Everyone we see is a beloved Son and Daughter of God!! When was the last time we really stopped and pondered that. EVERYONE!! And what else is, EVERYONE needs help to make it back home safe and sound!! I love being a missionary so much!! I'm so happy!! The church is so true!!
