We had a lot of random things to do that made doing normal missionary work kinda hard...but it was still a good week.
We had our normal activities Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and had a lot of fun. There were a lot of people from English class that came to the activity on Wednesday so that was awesome.
Thursday we went to a part member family's house for dinner so that was awesome. We hardly ever get fed in Thailand haha. I see emails from people in other places and it seems like they get like two dinners every single day! They made some really good Suki (I think).
Friday we got to have a fireside for the branch with President Senior and Sister Senior. It focused on all the younger people in the branch who are preparing to serve missions. We had a lot of people come and it was a huge success. All the speakers were great and the cookies and brownies almost tasted American haha. I understood almost everything that the speakers said too!
Saturday we had a baptism! This girl was so excited to get baptized that she didn't fall asleep until 3 in the morning! It's so cool to see the gospel improving people's lives everyday and how much happier it can make people.
Ok so I just have one story for this week to tell. We locked ourselves out of our house Saturday night. Our neighbor called us out to talk to us and so we walked out the side door and it shut. And we had already locked the front door. So no key, no phone. But that wasn't too big of a problem for us! We were able to open a couple of the windows near another door in our house and got the screens off. Luckily it was by the clothes rack so we could get a hanger. And lucky that Elder Lucas is way tall and has really long arms haha. So we had to get through a window, the screen door, and then turn the knob to click the lock. We managed that with a hose stuck through the window gate and wrapped around the knob. We were so proud.
This week we didn't get everything done we wanted too. But that just means we're going to try twice as hard this coming week! I know that this church is true and when we work and act well our part the Lord will provide the rest. That's the miracle of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. No matter what imperfections and weaknesses we have, everything can be made right through him.
I hope everyone has an awesome week!
Love Elder Josh Keller
