Its been a great week. Filled with the spirit of the Lord and visual progress from those teaching (me and my comp) and those being taught. We gave baptismal dates to a few more investigators and Elder Saunders has been making leaps and bounds this week in the language. In this last week his ability to read, speak, and understand has increased four-fold. The gift of tongues is real my friends. It is a true gift of the spirit to teach the gospel in a foreign tongue.
Monday we started teaching a new investigator named Meah Setra and he was very open to our message having studied about Jesus in his youth. We also taught our investigator named Makara from English class. He is learning with us often but still has not yet received an answer about the book of Mormon. We finished the night meeting with Ponlok and teaching him about the priesthood and committed him to read some passages from D&C 84.
Tuesday was a great day as usual. Tuesday andare some of my favorite days because I get to go to Oven Village (ភូមិឡ) and teach our recent converts and many investigators there including Sombor, Srey Niang, Sarith, Srey Touc, and Duoen. They are all wonderful people! We also met with Saruan and Sina as well as Vany and his friends. There were a lot of great lessons that day. They are all preparing to be baptized on future dates and they each are making progress in different ways.
Well I'd like to tell you more about how we had an awesome council for Zone trainingand how we had some miracles contacting people and getting return appointments and finding the elect of God. I'd also like to tell you how important it is for Members to be involved in missionary work in order for it to be of any lasting value. I'd like to tell you something about how you are called just as I am to minister to God's children wherever you may be. I'd like to impress upon you how church is more than the sacrament, but a kingdom, a group of people trying to create Zion and a place of refuge to strengthen one another against the wiles of the Devil. But I ran out of time so I'll just tell you that I know the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a man called of God to be a prophet, seer, and revelator. I know Jesus is the Christ and that He LIVES. Thomas S. Monson is the Lord's anointed today. I know this from the Holy Ghost, having pondered, prayed, and fasted many times to know of myself. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
