Change the World

Ok fam - a little strange today  - sorry. Saturday was supposed to be pday for the whole mission, but we were up in the hill tribes lifting pipe up the mountains hahahaha. We did it all day and got back at 6. So today we asked for an hour to email, and we got it :) So today is really short. Sorry. 

Studying with Pah Nit

The Work: 

My new companion is Elder Rogers.  He's coming from the office, having just been with my awesome MTC companion, Elder Allen! Elder Allen and I just keep switching companions I swear hahaha. We have had 3/4 of the same companions now... I love Elder Allen. Man, he is a stud! Elder Howard is going to Bangkok...sad to see him go. He is a good guy. Elder Rogers isn't here yet, and transfers are all messed up this week for lots of reasons that aren't important. So currently, I am in a trio for a couple of days with Elder Thompson and Elder Torres (other guys in my district). Work is going great. We had 71 people at church!!!! So excited the work is going well :) I will send a pic next week of my new comp. I have met him before. He is a total stud...and anyone chillin with Elder Allen is a friend of mine :) 

The Culture: 
Lots of people here in the north speak their northern dialect, or even their own language. You could live in the same kilometer as someone and speak a completely different language. So we can't understand anyone when we go up to the hill tribes... super fun! 

Working on a fresh water project for one of the hill villages.

No funnies that I can remember specifically this week. Sorry guys, it was kind of a hectic week ;) 

Spiritual thought: 
This beautiful sign in a member's home says all that I have to say today. 

It is a lofty goal... but the Lord works in small and simple means - what a glorious equation for success. I love you all dearly! 

Love the Lord and Laugh,
