I love being a Missionary!!!
This week was transfers, it's different without Elder Fontes, but I'm so excited to get to serve with Elder Coggins. We're stoked to be together and serve in Rigby!!!
We had an awesome experience with a family who is housing a Foreign Exchange Student. Her name is Harper. She's 16 & from Thailand. She's so sweet. We went to the Temple and watched "Meet The Mormons" at the Visitors Center. We asked the VC Sisters if they had a Thai Book of Mormon and they did! We asked Harper if that is the language she knew from home and she got excited and said yes! Then we told her that she could have it. She got soooo excited! She started looking through the pages and had a huge smile on her face. The Sisters came back and gave us the first 3 lesson pamphlets in Thai as well and Harper got even more excited. As we waited for the movie to begin she was looking through them reading all about the Plan of Salvation and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She looked so happy, it was awesome to see!
We watched the movie (and it was even more awesome the 2nd time!) I love "Meet The Mormons" i hope you all take your friends again!
After the movie we were mingling in the VC. We had the idea to ask the VC Sisters if they had the Christus recording in Thai and they did! We sat there with Harper listening to the Christus in her native tongue. She had a smile on her face looking down listening to the words. At one point she looked up quickly and starred at the Marble Christ. She said she loved the part when He told us to love all our Brothers and Sisters. We asked her if we could teach her more and she said YES!
We are so excited to be able to teach Harper. It's such a blessing to find someone from the other side of the world here in Rigby that we can share the Restored Gospel of Our Savior with.
My heart was so happy.
I am so excited for this new transfer and all the blessings ahead.
Sorry for the Short Email
I love you all
