Week of Exchanges

Hello Everyone! 


So for Pday we had this sort of water fight at the church with all of the sisters haha! It was a good time, nothing like a little stress relieving water fight to start off the week right. After that we shared a message with our Recent Convert Sophia who is going to China this upcoming week with her dad, but no worries she is just going for her dad's work she will be back in a week.
Then we say Muay who is like one of my favorite people ever, but we really didn't get to teach her because Om Kalin came in who is this crazy old member, I feel bad though she is going through a really hard time right now. Her kids are in prison for drugs, and she has 3 little boys that are crazy, and less actives as well.... She is just having a super super hard time right now... So we are going to go visit her and keep her in our prayers. She just started to cry right there at the church... it's been super hard. We shared 2 Nephi 26:33 with here and talked about how Heavenly Father loves everyone including her family. Nobody is excempt from Heavenly Father's love! 


Exchange Day with Sister Rein, but first we met with Srei Leak an investigator of ours. She is so good. We taught her lesson 2 and then we talked a bit about repentance. Which we talked about the week before... she told us a story about someone at work who wouldn't talk to her, and she had no idea what she did to her. Srei Leak said she was so mad at that person.... but decided to use repentance in her life and tell the girl she was sorry even though she had no idea what she had done. She is so good! She already is applying repentance in her life! Seriously she is golden. Then we had DM. 

We talked about what a priveldge it is to have the opportuniy to testify about Christ 24/7! When else are we going to be able to do this?!!! We are so lucky! I love it so much! After DM we went and started the exchange. I went with Sister Rein. She is so good. She literally talks to everyone she is the master contacter I fell like I learned so much from her! She is a convert of about 3 years, and she is amazing! We went out and saw Om Kia, and committed her to prepare to go to the temple. Then we went to teach Rosa, and taught about service. Lucky for us we did a live example of service when Rosa's little cousin... pooped on the floor we grabbed the broom and cleaned is up... haha it was super funny while we were doing it Sister Rein was like see this is service this is how you serve haha! It was awesome! Then we went and saw Nada. We taught her about Family History and doing temple work.

We met Ming Ponluu in the morning and taught about Faith, we taught in Alma 32:27 about how our faith is a seed. Ming Ponluu is just super good! She is a strong RC that is working to get married/sealed with her husband in the temple. It gives me chills thinking about that day. Then after her we went and saw Ming Pholla and committed her to living worthy of the Holy Ghost she told us that she feels like she has lost it because she hasn't been going to church... We told her because she realizes what she is doing wrong that means she does still have it... and maybe she is just not used to it's voice! So hopefully we can get her back coming to church again!

English class we had a big activity and went into the chapel. Elder Lambert taught about the Plan Of Salvation and then we had Muay talk a little and another member. Muay did so well she has such a strong testimony and she is going to be a killer missionary one day! 


So this was the day I have been waiting for since day 1 entering into Cambodia.... I got to be comps with Sister Collins again! It was soooo good! It was awesome because the last time we were together we didn't know how to teach, we couldn't speak cambodian, and well you know we were in the mtc so everything was hard. It was so awesome to be together and see how much we have grown! I loved loved loved teaching with her again... so good! We went and saw Ming Ruet and taught about faith. Then we saw Om Nae. So Om has all of these pills that she is taking and she said that some of them are making her sick because she doesn't know what they are but she takes them because the hospital gave them to her.... yeah so sister collins and I just decided to throw them out... Om wasn't too happy about it and she tried to stopped us but i just stuffed them into my bag and took them.... so yeah it was good! Then we committed her wearing her garments! She is going to go with us to buy a different kind. After Om Nae we went and saw Nada. We taught her about miracles and about how Heavenly Father is going to help open her parents hearts when she tells them she is going to get baptized.
Finally companion for a day! 


We saw Ming Ponluu and talked about how she can prepare to go to the temple. Ming Ponluu loves talking about the temple. She really really wants to go. Then... after some language study... we exchanged back. It was so good though. I love Sister Collins she is an amazing missionary and I am grateful that we were able to serve together again! Seriously I can't even tell you how good it was.
Then I stayed with sister xiong again.... for about 3 hours... I just tried to encourage...and stuff... it was hard... we cried together...and I just worry about her....
Then I went out and taught with Sister Nguyen. So she is one of my favorite sisters. I love teaching with her, we just work together so well. She is amazing and a killer missionary... I wanted to be her comp one day but she just got switched over the to Viet program here... she is going to be awesome though!!! Seriously she is one of the best missionaries out here.
Then we saw Muay and taught her about how to recongnize prompting of the Holy Spirit. 
This girls face when she finally met Sister Collins


We didn't know what to do in the morning so we decided to go to the church and do some english contacting.... turns out Srei Nian was there. Just waiting so we ended up teaching her about miracles... I love how Heavenly Father just sets stuff up like that for us. It was good to get to know her a little better. Turns out she didn't have a way to get home she wouldn't had to wait at the church for 5 hours so we ended up just dopping her home. Then we went to lunch with Muay, and she helped us teach for the rest of the day. She is so good! She just has such a good solid testimony and she can relate to everyone so well. We saw Bong Vaeng and taught about sacrament with her, then we saw Komsaeng and talked about baptism, and then we saw Nada. We committed her to setting a goal to get baptized the 23rd and telling her parents 2 weeks before it happens.Also we talked a little bit about missionary work and nada told us that she wants serve one day! I hope she does!


We saw Yiay Sem in the morning! We watched Faith in Christ with her and then shared our testimonies. I love testifying of the Savior. Then we saw Neari one of our new investigators we taught her about enduring to the end. She still doesn't want to get baptized... but we are working on it! She is super awesome though. She understands a lot.
Church church was the same we had two new investigators show up at church today!
Then we planned for the temple activity we have tonight and for pioneer day at the end of this month. 

THEN.......TRANSFER CALLS!!!! Yep nothing changed... we are the same except we are moving to South zone also my kid Sister Chanthakhoun is coming to the city, and living in our house! I couldn't be more excited. Also fun fact this transfer is 2 months long! Well that's all for this week
