Chiang Mai Letter--November 10, 2013

I'm not really sure what happened this week. 
On Wednesday we went biking for about 4 hours. The first 1.5 hours was to and from a less active's house. The rest of the time was spent trying to find an investigator's house. Addresses here are absolutely terrible. They are absolutely sooo hard to find. We still never found the investigator. On the bright side, Sister Zatarain and I have more impressive tans now. The watch tan is coming back. 

On Tuesday was Showcase. We made it Thanksgiving theme. Sister Zatarain and I wrote the Thanksgiving story (we may have made up part of it...oops) and the Elders acted it out while we read it. Then everyone made hand turkeys and talked about what they were grateful for. And then we watched a Mormon Message on gratitude. It was fun. 

Monday we had nothing to do for p-day so we went to the Buddhist temple. It's super pretty but I felt absolutely nothing there. It's such a testimony to me about the power of the Holy Ghost. Our temples may not be as decorative but at least I always feel something there. The Buddhist temples are super pretty though and fun to go visit.

Our favorite way to go contacting in Chiang Mai is to go to parks. There may not always be a lot of people but the people that are there aren't in a rush and are okay with talking to us. We've met a lot of families there and one family actually came to church yesterday! We met them about 3 weeks ago but they were never free. They're a cute little family. 

Oh, dear family, I have a problem. I am oh so very directionally challenged. Sister Z is having me lead more to make sure that I know where I'm going and I keep on getting lost. Oops. That's okay. The Lord will bless me, right? Haha. :)

Well, time is almost up. It was really fun talking to you!! =D [note from Linden:  Abbie had her computer time early Monday morning (her time), the same time that we were writing to her (Sunday night our time). Therefore we had a brief back-and-forth email conversation in real time.  A new senior couple, Elder and Sister Ure, just arrived in Chang Mai.  They are the parents of our stake president, John Ure.]

Love you all! =D
