I had an amazing final 3 days in Korat, as Joyem and I went around teaching a lot of our RCs, investigators, and visited our members. It was pretty sad because this was the first time i left an area when all the members knew ahead of time, and so there were lots of little parties and get togethers and what nots. Its crazy how quickly your grow to love the people you serve on your mission and how hard it is to bear that final testimony as you leave them- they really are my family. So a lot of them went to send me and Elder Joyem off on wednesday night- Joyem and I arrived in good old Bangkok at bus station at about 2am and took all our stuff over to the missionaries house over in Jaengwattana, and stayed with them that night/morning. It is way funny going down to transfers with Joyem, because the transfers meeting is held in his home ward building, so its just like coming home for him. We went and got a way tasty waffle breakfast that morning, and then had transfers. It was bitter-sweet seeing my son grow up and move on to a new companion- but there is a lot of exciting stuff happening this transfer. So i got transfered upto Udon, way up in the north-east of thailand, and i'm serving with elder Hancock who just finished his 2 transfer in country. We are in the same house as the ZL's who both happened to be past office elders and theres always a special bond in that so thats pretty sick- espeially elder curtis who we've been praying to be companions one of these days, but staying in the same house is second best. We have 12 people in the district serving over 3 branches so theres a lot of responsability to take on, but getting to know the members these last couple days and a lot on sunday just gets me way excited for this transfer. Its gonna be a short 5 week transfer to finish right before christmas.
A lot of fun stuff this week here in Udon- but no time sorryyy. I'm excited to take on this new calling her in the beautiful promised land of Udon. The mission is such an adventure full of mystery and excitement, and there is nowehere else i would rather be. My testimony is strengthened as i see the miracles that God is pouring out to his children here. I love you guys- the gospel is so so true :)
