Thailand Week 58, 21 Sept 2014

Hey Family!
So like pretty much everyone guessed, I moved out to the wilderness of Thailand to the rural town of Sakon Nakhon!  There are cows everywhere, a mix of dirt and pavement roads, we ride bikes again now, it doesn't smell like Bangkok does, there's waaaay more nature, and not a McDonalds for a couple hundred Kilos.  I love it here!  

The city definitely grew on me, there's definitely energy there from all the business and everything but this is a lot more like home for sure.  And the small branch of 70 or so feels like a home as well!  They love each other so much!  They take care of each person with so much care, anyone who comes in will feel so welcome.  The branch president is a great guy too!  He's like 5'3" and 200 pounds with a little mustache.  He is such a cheerful guy!  He leads this family here with so much sincerity.  

I'm with Elder Wiliams who came in the same group as Elder Wright!  We have a young district of 4 here and are 3 hours from the nearest missionaries!  I love it!  We don't have as much time today because both keys to the bike lock bent in half or literally snapped.  So the ripped old member down the street walked out in his garments and grabbed a hammer to come help. (he put a shirt on first)  We set the bikes down and smashed the lock with a hammer.  

Okay cool scriptures, The bible dictionary definitions of prayer and miracles are so good!  And then read the talk "Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ" by Gene R. Cook!  It's taught me so much about faith and miracles and how it all works together.    

Love you all!
