"รถจักรยาน" "Bicycles" a good way to get around

This was another interesting letter from Aaron. He talked a lot about his bicycle. Reading some of his emails remind me of when we are watching the amazing race. The crazy roads.......
He also answered some of our other questions- I think he had a good week!

 (I asked him how they approach people) Basically yeah I just say “Sa Wat Dii Khrab” and ask them how they are doing and then just start talking about how we are missionaries and we teach about Jesus Christ. Then we give them a thing we call a “egasan”. They are cards with different pictures on them they all have a different message on them. Based on what the picture has i.e. a picture of someone being baptized- we then talk about baptism and what not! It was scary the first time but now it doesn't even faze me! I No, we do not have any new investigators yet. We just have lots of potentials from tracting and stuff. Well, our friend has now been baptized! He was very excited, in fact he was so excited he came wearing white pants and shirt to church!!! He will be a great member!

Yeah this week was loads better, albeit stressful because I had no P-day last week because I just worked through it .But No Big Deal we were blessed for that work. 
So the family we are teaching actually took us to lunch and they ordered frog for us.  At first I thought they just cooked food all the time, but actually the dad is a college professor as well and he writes books with his wife as well! Yeah it came out of nowhere!

(Someone told Todd that he had a maid while serving in Thailand…) No, we do not have maids, we do all the cleaning ourselves. On a sad note we may be moving because the members that own the house want to sell it to someone else, which totally stinks because we are like right in the middle of everything so yeah!
Well sounds like you had a fun week! I also maybe the only one in Khon Kaen after this transfer who knows the area.  This is pretty scary because I do not know this area at all!

I love the food in Thailand it is SOOO DELICIOUS! I eat out every day because it is so expensive to cook you own food here it is sad! But the food here is amazing and there are so many things I can try that are new.

I do not think that are any areas that use a car maybe in Bangkok but I am not sure. The bike I bought is amazing it has like a flappy panel gear shift, it's way sweet! It's brand new but it usually way dirty so it doesn't really matter that it is new. The Thai people drive on the wrong side of the road, then they don't even use lights when they change lanes. They just move over whenever they feel it is way scary! My bike is super light , which is way nice I can pick it up and put it in a taxi way easy. I ride my bike every day. It's way nice because we can get around problems such as too many cars trying to get in one lane. There are so many nice cars here like old nice car. They also have a lot of old Hiluxes here its crazy those trucks are invincible! They never die, People in Thailand have almost more trucks then people in Utah it so weird. I will take a picture of one of their public transportation trucks they have its way crazy! I wish I could sleep through all the dogs howling at three every night one starts and then it doesn't stop for like 10 minutes it is ridiculous!!!!! (Reading about Thailand, it seems a lot of the Thai people have dogs and there are many strays as well

I will try to speak as much as I can it is hard because sometimes I don't know what to say but I will do my best!(Aaron has been discouraged about not being able to communicate- we have been encouraging him just to try) I’m finally starting to understand what they are saying to me but some other times it just sounds like the sound the teacher makes in  the show the Peanuts. Yeah I just sit there and shake my head and just go uhhuh then I pick out a word that makes sense and I can piece the sentence to together and understand what they are saying.

There are like 4 or 5 kids in this branch (I had asked how many children are in his branch)
  I love you lots!!
