Yes, there was a small tremor, but I slept through it. ): the elders called us, and were like did you feel that? sister Holmes did, I was asleep. 5 o'clock, there ain't nothing that can get me up before 6:30.... except for the huge thunderstorm/driving rain last night x( no fun
We are actually going to chiang mai today because we have a meeting tomorrow, so that should be fun. what else.... it was another hard working, miracle filled week. basically any week that people come to church a miracle.
I'm super happy with this ward, and my companion, and my district, and basically I'm way happy, and working hard.
So last week for p-day we went and rode elephants, but I forgot my camera cord at the house :D So you'll have to wait till next week for the pics, sorry bout that. also, we went to the long neck tribe camp. so the tribe of people that wear rings around their neck to make them long, that's from Thailand. I don't have any pictures however, because... I don't know I just felt so bad to ask for any because it made me feel like I was treating them like an exhibit instead of people. so, sorry about that. But I bought some scarfs from them, so you'll have to be happy with that.
Culture lesson: norther, is actually the hardest thing in the world. it is so close to normal thai, but at the same time I can't understand a word. and it's more like an accent then iisan was. iisan was a new luggage, this is just wonky thai. for instance, the name of my area, chiang rai is pronounced jiang hai. it's just so odd.
Spiritual lesson: faith does not exempt us from hard ships. when people say life is better with faith, that is not because everything is fine, it is because everything will be fine. some time, we must wait for promised peace. Jacob in the old testament NEVER got to see the promised land, or even Moses for that matter, but they had faith that God would keep His promise, so they never worried about it. When we have faith, we have hope for a better world.
I don't know what else to say..................................................
Life is good
Love you all!
