So Monday and Tuesday I went with Elder Quirante, Elder Long, and Elder Um to Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. It was a wonderful place. The ruins of an ancient people who have since lost their former glory and majesty. The people who built these huge temples are the predecessors to the current Cambodian people. I'll attach some pictures at the bottom.

Wednesday we had a surprise guest appear on the road in the middle of nowhere-ville (aka Prey Cho). A friend of Elder Smith's. A Cambodian woman who lives in Phnom Penh and owns an orphanage and works with his mom in America. She brought a duffel bag full of goodies and then went with us to our lesson with an investigator! It was just perfect. She was such a great help! She shared an amazing testimony and it brought our investigator Ming Sophal to tears! We were very grateful for her presence. 

On Friday we met again with Ming Sophal and her son and two nephews and taught them all about the restoration and they agreed to be baptized on the 6th of December! That will be awesome! We met a few members and not so active members and have been teaching the importance of personal revelation, especially about the Book of Mormon. No one can know about spiritual truths unless the spirit reveals it unto them. Also, no one can endure to the end unless they are receiving personal revelation frequently. We need to be in tune with the spirit so that we can recognize when He speaks to us and what we need to do. This will help us to overcome trials and tribulations when they come, and they will come!

We saw some beautiful scenery this week and goly I love Cambodia and this wonderful jungle farm land that I live in. It's looking to be the best of best times ahead. 

I'm convinced more and more each day of the divinity and reality of my savior Jesus Christ. He is the Son of God. He is the redeemer of the world. The anticipated Messiah. He reigns in heaven and on earth. He has established His church again on the earth in its fullness through the prophet Joseph Smith. He will shortly come again and in His glory consume the earth. He will present His kingdom perfected before the father and we shall be His. Let us learn of Him and take His cross upon us that we may be perfected through Him. He is the way. He has provided the means whereby all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel. All man will be saved. But only those who progress and improve their time while in this life will be exalted in the celestial kingdom. Let us live a celestial life by the celestial law that we may be there in the next life. And so that when Christ comes we shall know Him because we shall see Him as He is, because we shall be like Him. In Jesus' name, Amen.
