It was a really really really good talk and learned so much from it.
On Wednesday, our two Thai districts got to Host, which is the be essentially a Host for new missionaries coming in to the MTC and help them get situated for the upcoming weeks. I hosted a Elder Cox, who is going to Portugal, and a Elder Imada, who is going to Vancouver Washington. It was pretty sweet and fun. Plus, I get to skip out on class for a bit. ^u^. Thursday was more of those meh Days here in the MTC. But the funny thing is that I started to receive mail from my companion's mother. It's kinda funny because she sent post cards and food from Hawaii and I totally not expecting it. From the word's of my companion, "She's a Legend".
On Friday I've learned this really funny Thai-English Phrase. "Aayu haa pii" kinda sounds like "Are you happy?" in English but essentially means "You are 5". The other missionaries from my district were so confused as they thought our teachers during a mock missionary lesson were asking them if they were happy in English. It was kinda fun. Saturday was a rather sweet day. My companion and I told an amazing lesson during TRC (Teaching Resource Center) and the volunteers there who served Thai missionaries told us that our lessons were almost perfect. We just needed to improve our Thai a bit. We also had taught a really good lesson to our mock investigator Phii Chaang (basically our teacher imitating a past baptized investigator they have met on their missions) about the Law of Chasity and how we can keep bad thoughts away by thinking about family, which was really important to Chaang. He even started to cry a little (of happiness by the way). After the lesson, our teacher told us personally that he had definitely felt the Spirit during that lesson.
Another interesting story I've heard that day was about this cool story from Elder Howell and Elder Somephikhay, the Vietnamese-speaking elders, and how they were able to befriend and help a Gold Tag Investigator (essentially, a REAL investigator here at the MTC) come closer to the gospel to the point of setting an appointment to meet the Missionaries serving in Provo (not learning in the MTC). It's a touching story. We have a chance to meet a Gold Tag Investigator on Wednesday. I'm so excited, yet I'm also nervous at the same time. Sunday was a nice day to take a break from learning Thai. I had a chance to lead a discussion with my district about how repentance is salvation of not only our life to come after death, but the life we are currently living. The Cambodians, Vietnamese, and the Hmong missionaries sang a beautiful farewell song that day. I'm so sad to see them go after hanging out with them for so long. They are all leaving on either Monday or Tuesday of this week. It's going to be lonely with them being gone. But it's going to be ok because the nccng (young, or in this case, the new) Thai's are coming in this week. That's going to be so exciting.
