Surprise Baptism June 9

We had a baptism today. It was one of the investigators who said she may not be baptized for 2 years! Yeah it was a surprise! It was way sweet! Her name is B. She accepted the gospel like no one's business! Her only problem was, well that she had to get married. But then about a week ago she went to Phuket and got married. It was awesome! She then got baptized. She is pretty fantastic!

Yes, I will be there (in response to my inquiry if he would attend the special Stake/District conference next weekend)It is a big deal, because Elder Gong, the Area President for us, will be there. The last time he came was when I was in  Khon Kaen. That was to see if this area was ready for another stake or not! We will see what happens, it's kinda exciting!! Well that is way awesome -  SWITZERLAND being rededicated to missionary work. That means many more blessings will be bestowed upon it, more than ever before!
Today we did not go to the zoo, instead we played soccer with everyone in our zone. It was very fun!! Sorry,  no cool pics..... I was busy playing soccer to the max. It was super "delicious" fun! 
Well, we have been struggling with inviting. We have not really had time to do it. We have been busy with other things. On Saturday, we went out with the youth and taught them to be missionaries. It was pretty fun. I  played an investigator that was a drunkard. The people teaching me struggled a little bit but they held there own! 

Last week we found a bag with a Burmese man's passport in it. We posted his face everywhere to see if he would call us and try to come and get it, Well the days passed by and then yesterday we got a call. It was him! He came to the church to get the passport. We may end up teaching this guy soon!

Always remember that the sun will always overpower the darkness, no matter what!
The devil's power is as real as the wind, but the way we protect ourselves from his power by following all of the commandments and respecting the priesthood. The priesthood is the power to overcome all darkness! No matter what!

Youth Missionary Activity with Elder Gage

11 months to go......... June 1st

Well, its the beginning of a new month and we are looking to the heavens for some guidance because right now we have one investigator who is good and the rest are not really wanting to learn.............
Yep, still living in the hole! One of investigators is stuck to her catholic faith. She just likes parts of the gospel, but is not interested in learning about everything the gospel has to offer. Even when we taught with such power! (

So E. has been coming to church for about a year and a half and had not been baptized. I thought he had been a member forever but he hasn't. His father separated from his mother a long time ago.
I guess he lives with his dad. E was baptized because his dad does not want him to become like his older brother who is a crack head. E. is one of the greatest sun-rays in our days!  The exciting thing that happened this week with him was that he was out of town for basically the whole week. We were not positive if he was going to get baptized or not because well he had not been taught everything. That Saturday we taught him the Plan of Salvation. He was interviewed and then he was baptized oh yeah! He was baptized! It was awesome. He is so cool! He is a boss. He just makes our days better.

Read the scriptures together, mom I have seen how much it blesses families. I have seen the devastating effects that it has if you do not read. It can tear a family apart, it will cause more strife! Read together!
Being a missionary is fun!
