Yesterday was one of the best Sundays on the mission Week #45 May 14, 2016

This week was so good! Ive seen some really cool stuff with our investigators. Missions are just way dope. Well we had transfer calls last night, and im getting transfered!  thought for sure i was staying, but hey the Lord needs me in the city now. I heard my area is kinda tough, but im hoping i can help change it. I've been in the Provinces my whole mission and now im going to be right in the middle of the city, super small crowded houses. Lots of factories and stuff. Its going to be a polar opposite from where i am right now. I heard the work in the city and in the provinces is very different so im excited to see how life is in the city. My new comp is going to be Elder Medley. I've heard nothing but funny stories and good things about him so im way pumped. The area is call Jum Ga Moon. Its going to be awesome. 

Yesterday was one of the best Sundays of the mission. It was the coolest. Our 6 investigators got confirmed, and we had three more baptisms. Then 4 of my brand new confirmed investigators all gave talks in Sacrament Meeting. Ahh man it was so tight. We had a total of 9 investigators at church. Pretty much the coolest day ever. Om Sorin, Bong Tie and Hiang all got baptized. Bong tie was from my old area but he still wanted me to baptize him. It was way cool. Elder Chhook and I contacted bong tie on the road, taught him from lesson one and now hes getting baptized. Coolest feeling. Missions are just so cool. You just forget about all the lame things in the world, and just try to help people be happy, and then you become happy when they get happy. just happiness all around here in Seam Riap. Yesterday I don't think i have ever used my Priesthood so much it was so cool. I started the day teaching and then we went to church and I gave the holy ghost to someone, then i blessed the sacrament, then i baptized two people, and then i gave a blessing to the sick. it was so cool. Im so grateful that God has trusted me enough to give me his Authority. its awesome.

Om Sorin-
The couple we baptized last week that lives in the jungle invited us to lunch this week, so we made the trek over to there house. They made SO much food. IT was a legit cambo feast, So much good food. So many mangoes! 

Im going to miss this place. The people here are just so cool. Def going to come back and hang out with my new homies here.
