Week 17/ Week 9 Cambodia: Land of...It's a Small World?!?!?!?!

Yes...sadly the song It's A Small World has been found in Cambodia. I heard it as a noise that a truck made when it was backing up. I could not get it out of my head for hours.

This week was just filled with miracles and I'm sure I won't be able to remember them all. Yesterday we had one investigator and her husband who is already a member but was less active until we met them invited to church. We were waiting for them and the meeting already started. When the opening prayer was finished we went outside to call them but they didn't pick up. Then the first thing I thought of was just to pray. So we went in the corner of the hall and prayed. I said it in English because I had specific things I wanted to ask for. I remember the words just coming out, asking for a miracle that they would come to church. We closed and I remember as we were walking back to the chapel we looked at the stairs...and up was walking the husband with their month old baby in his arms with his wife behind him. I almost fell to my knees right there and started crying. Haha I wanted to so badly. I was so grateful for the miracle we had. I know miracles happen and that God hears our prayers. It was so cool :).

On Saturday we celebrated Pioneer day. Haha Cambodians LOVE celebrating it (well the one's who actually know what it is). They did a big celebration thingy with lots of singing, dancing, and lots of curry :) I liked the curry. Haha. They even played some American music too. It was entertaining.

This week we have had several wonderful lessons with investigators. When you actually prepare for the day and do your studies and focus during the mornings the Spirit is with you all day and you truly teach with the Spirit :).

Something fun that happened this week was I turned 19!!!! I'm officially at missionary age!!! It was weird. I didn't even realize it until halfway through studies. Then I was like...oh I'm to studying :). Elder Noot did take me out to get ice cream at Swenson's. Oh I miss ice cream sooo much. It was so good. Haha.

Well that's pretty much all this week. It was wonderful and we truly had miracles.
