Week 4: Elephants and a Weekend in (almost) Myanmar

Hey again! As for exciting things that have taken place within the past week or so, last weekend we got to to a Young Single Adult conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Now you may be thinking that that doesn’t sound like anything too exciting, but what was different about this…

Week 3: Sukhothai

If you haven’t already noticed a theme in my blog posts,  I am very intrigued by the contrast between the old and the new of Thailand, especially made evident when looking at the temples around here. We took a weekend excursion to Sukhotai which is located a few hours south of Chiangmai (I can only…

Week 2: When You Feel So Tired But You Can’t Sleep…

This has apparently been one of the hottest years that they’ve had in Thailand for over 40 years. We’ve all been wondering when the hot season is going to give way to the rainy season but as of a couple of days ago it seems that the weather is finally starting to transition. This was…

Week 1: I’m in Thailand?!?!

I’m already coming up on almost two weeks in Thailand and it has already been full of many different experiences and adventures. In case you are unaware of what exactly I’m doing in Thailand,  I will be here for the next two and a half months as I participate in a BYU study abroad where…

The End?

I Will Carry You to Church!!

The end of this past week was fabulous because our investigator, Eddie, finally came to church! He has been in the hospital for the past little bit and hasn’t been able to leave his house much because of the pain in his leg, but he’s doing a lot better now. We had tried to get…

Every Prayer Is Heard

Hello hello! So this past week was of course amazing, mostly because we got to go to the temple again!!! I really can not express how much this sacred and holy place means to me. It has been such a comfort to me so many times on my mission, and I know that if you…

If It’s Fate . . .

Leihdeih hou!!! I don’t know why it is, but the beginning of the week always seems to be kind of slow, but by the end of it things get so busy that sometimes we don’t even have time to finish all of our studies! It’s kind of like everyone is always free on the same…
