Beautiful Morning

We did good.
We started off this week by being invited to go to an elementary school to teach english which was way jammin.

We had basically like a four day switchoff cause of Zone Conference week. The other Elders in our district who live about 2 hours away came over Tuesday night. We had interviews all day with President, Wednesday, then Zone Conference which was good on Thursday, then we switchoffed in the other Elder's area Friday to interview one of their investigators for baptism, and then had a huge Sports Day on Saturday.
This week was so so good but didn't get a whole lot of work in due to meetings and traveling. But it was so good and the Holy Ghost has been so strong.

It's been unbelievably hot, but... it started raining! Way hard last night. Best thing ever taking a shower outside and then falling asleep to rain.
We had a bunch of Sport's tournaments and I took part in the Church Ball tournament which we won by a lot. Had a huge crowd. Met up with Elder Weaver, my trainer, and that was awesome.
2 Nephi 2:25 & Alma 34:32

Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.

For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors.
Just had a neat thought about how much joy doing God's Work has brought me. Literally our purpose on this earth is to work. It is a Godly thing and that is why it (should) naturally bring us happiness, especially when it is doing His work. I love it, and I am happy. If you read in Jacob 5 it talks about the laborers and how the Lord labors with us and how we will have joy with the Lord as we labor with Him. Its neat and I can easily testify that it is truth. I can feel my Savior strengthening and guiding. I know He lives, especially because through us, He has changed Sister ทิพย์ life. There is nothing better in this life than fulfilling what He has for you to do. I love being a missionary (:

Also what makes me so so happy is having Sister ทิพย์ help us teach lessons and even come to Ward Missionary meetings because of her desire and Faith. She is amazing. She shares scriptures and recognizes the Spirit and testifies of the truthfulness of Jesus Christ. She is already bringing others closer to Christ, including the missionaries.
Transfers this week, will update you next week.
I love you (: 💙
