I wanna eat your toes

So... Lazy.... to write more. 

Mothers day=when we skype our families. So I feel like there's not much more to say even though I haven't said any of it to any of you. 

Today I just want to write fun stuff from the week. 

1.) We were handing out fliers for our free English class, and a kid walked up to talk to us. He was maybe like what, 6? But he would just mouth words at us. I am pretty used to that since no one thinks I know their language, so they just mouth words at us, but then when he wouldn't even respond to anything we said to him in Cambodian. And then we realized he didn't know how to speak! He was on mute mode! So we asked him what he wanted and he pointed to the other side of the rode. He wanted the tall Americans to help him cross the busy street. So we did and it was really cute. 

2.) I was sitting when all of the sudden my pants just RIPPED OPEN. Rips all up and down my legs. I don't even know where it came from. BUT, we were luckily at a copy shop where the guy had a stapler so I stapled my pants nice and shut. 

3.) There was one night where Elder Ros and I had nothing to do for like 3 hours. So we tried finding people on the streets who want to learn, and then we quickly had a feeling that there was something else we should do. Elder Ros asked me if there were any members we should visit. I thought of one who is this sick dude who has a wife and daughter who come to church every week but he can't because he is sick. So we went there. It turned out he had just went to the hospital and came back, and we had no clue. He was getting worse. So then I wanted to share with them about hope and read a scripture in Revelations that I like to read, but I couldn't think of it. So I asked them if they had a bible. They did. They let me borrow it, and I opened to revelations, and the first page I opened to was the one with the scripture I wanted to share on it. HOW, do you ask, did I remember which verse the scripture was? BECAUSE IT WAS THE ONLY VERSE ON THE PAGE THEY HAD HIGHLIGHTED. I told them I was confident we were lead to their house to share that message. 

So ya. Good week. I feel like my mission is coming to a close and life is moving really fast. Does anyone else feel that way? If so, I know how you feel. 


It was super boring talking to them.

"Free English class”

Sometimes we take these Elders out with us because they are Vietnamese, and they don't know Cambodian. So we show them how its done, basically.

59th Episode of អែលឌើរ រស់ - Vore Contacting #DOWORK (Mother's Day Special)

Here lie's the main picture of the week! Aligning with why's my post's title that.... This was Elder Vore! 


          How's it going everyone I would like to make this post short and sweet as necessary! Before this post I would like to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day! I love and miss my mom! Moms are the best! 

        So this week was straight forward we've been slowly receiving new investigators here and there in this area! Visiting people around the area still searching for those who wants to learn about the Gospel! 

Any particular details well, we started teaching a new investigator who thought church was at 3PM over but Stake Conference was on 9AM on that morning. So instead to make-up for him coming to church yesterday, we just taught him about the Restored Gospel! This new investigator's name Look Poo Piset! This is a Look Poo I contacted weeks ago and he's been going to our church constantly already! He's still cool and really loves to pray! 

I come across another investigator name Poo Kosal! Another cool guy, but does take work! And more encouragement on helping him pray to help him communicate with God! 

North Stake Conference was great! However, none of our investigators participate or attended it! Argh! Oh well! We'll still keep inviting them closer to Christ though! It was still great to see the members in the North Zone stay strong by attending this conference! 

So, sorry I had to cut this post short, but I just want to let you all know I am doing great hope the pictures I sent to you all with explain how'd last week went! I still love to serve my divine heritage I am here to stay! Plus, I am still here to work hard! Stay blessed and fantastic! Will be a posting a better post next week! Here I go! Gotta get busy with the reality of Missionary Work! If any of you all are praying that I don't get to "trunky" lately God bless you all because I really want to keep helping others come unto Christ to keep the gospel spreading!

"Pray in your families unto the Father, always in my name, that your wives and your children may be blessed."- 3 Nephi 18:21
