I am running out of titles for these. . .

Hello Everyone!


So for P-day we just went to the ផ្សារ and had lunch with some of the other Sisters. Sister Leng and Sister Winders. Then we got back and we had a sister that will be serving in Cambodia, but she is going to the temple and the MTC in the Philippines first... it was really neat we got to be apart of her setting apart. She is the only member of her family, and some of her sisters were there for the setting apart... her name is Sister Chiang, and I am way excited for her to start serving she is going to be amazing, and I know that this mission and her example is going to affect her family so so much!
After the setting apart we got to be her daikuu for the rest of the night! So we just helped her get everything ready to fly out the next day. 


In the morning we went and translated for President Christensen while he talked to the new missionaries about the temple, there were about 5 missionaries heading out. I am so so so excited for them to go to the temple! Honestly, it's pretty much the best place on earth... did I mention how excited I am to have one in SV!?

After that we saw Ming Somat and taught her about the atonement/sacrament... it was a pretty good lesson... I love talking about the Savior it's such a privilege that we have to testify of him! We literally wear his name on our chest and get to testify of him every day all of the time... what other time do you get to do that?! It's such a blessing. Ming just had surgery so she has been feeling a little sick but we promised her strength through the atonement and through the sacrament! 

After that, we had an exchange and I went with Sister Kosal and Sister Hom! Oh my goodness I love them so much!!! The first night we just went over to the Orphanage and saw the kids there. It was the first time I've ever been there and it literally is one of the best places on earth, all the kids there are incredibly smart, and all of them are members... and most of them when they turn 18 or 19 serve missions, and they are seriously some of the best missionaries out there! It's amazing what they have done for the children there. 


We helped Tavee fill out her mission papers :) and then taught three investigators and all 3 of them committed to baptism! Way awesome! Those sisters are doing an amazing job in that area. After that, we finished up the exchange... I was doing the evaluation thing and I literally started to cry... haha just because of the fact that I love those sisters so much, and the mission is going by way way too fast. I am so grateful for the chance I have to get to know all of these amazing people out here... honestly, you may have to drag me out of here haha I just love it! It will be so hard! Luckily I don't have to worry about it haha i still have loads of time right?! 
We got caught in a HUGE rainstorm


English class at the ministry and then we taught Chadaen and taught her "What I lacketh yet?" and shared Ether 12:27 with her! Other than that we just had some meetings with President. 


We saw Ming Savon a LA that is going to a Korean church and we taught her lesson 1... while we were teaching she just got this guilty feeling on her face, and you could tell she was feeling really guilty and really uncomfortable... haha so that's good :) We testified of the restoration and then committed her to reading the BOM and praying about it. She committed to it, so hopefully we can get her heading back on the right track. 
we didn't make it to the church. we couldn't get through the waves of water hitting us from cars haha literally would knock us over everytime 

Then we saw Om Siat and just shared 2Nephi 21:14-16 with her and talked about the love of Christ!
Then we saw Bong Lisa, and she really just needed someone to listen to her, but we shared Elder Hollands latest conference talk with her, I don't know what it's called in English haha....
Then we saw our investigator Bong Sophia and taught her about the commandments! She is working on getting baptized next month. 


Saturday was a day of rejection... I swear ever contact was way harsh which usually doesn't happen and our investigator Om Gian locked herself in her house and wouldn't answer the door... and then her kid came out 10 minutes later and said she was gone... we call her phone and heard it go off and I asked her kid " she didn't take her phone" answer " um... well yeah she did but she just isn't picking up...." we literally could hear the phone going off... then to top it off this guy we contacted tried to explain to us how what we are teaching isn't "logical" how is it no logical... he said he doesn't need Christ... but really we all do. After a pretty interesting discussion we left and I told him " Hey listen I know right now you think you can make it on your own, but I don't know about you but for me I am weak and I know I couldn't make it through this life on my own, so if you ever reach that day where you just can't do it on your own anymore you can call that number on the back and then we left." I know today he didn't want to learn but who knows what will happen later in his life, and even though it was a day of rejection! I still feel super blessed to testify of the Savior every day! So all is well :)


We went on splits and I got to go with Sister Lines again! Wahoo, so in the morning we went and saw Om Sokka and taught her family history and she literally just started doing it right then and there it was awesome! We filled out her parents and her grandparents, and she came to church!!!!!!!!!! 

MIRACLES!!!! We actually ended up having four investigators at church this week! Pretty awesome!
After church we went saw Chadaen, Srei Leak, and then Ming Muung. 

Yep but that was pretty much the week! This coming week we are going out to the khets for exchanges we are heading to Siem Reap :) President wants us to do an exchange out there... and oh my gosh I am so excited I love the people out there they are literally my family, then we are going to BB, and KC! So it will be a crazy week :) I love being here! SETHY GOOD LUCK AT STATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, you are a stud and congrats on regionals!!! Hey mom give all those sister missionaries hugs i bet they could use a mama Kenna :)
