This week was a little frustrating for Sister Soem and I. I haven't been in the area for too long and Sister Soem just came so we are basically white-washing. A lot of the investigators that the Sisters before had can rarely meet with us and aren't progressing so much. So this week, we just tried to do CBR finding ad look for less-actives that haven't been to church in forever. Oh btw, I don't know how american missions work, but in Cambodia we have CBRs that are records of the persons, all of their paperwork, a picture of them, updates on how they are doing, and a hand-drawn map that we have to try to decipher. It's been a little hard to try to read the maps. Also, Sister Soem is feeling a little under the weather so we have been inside looking at maps and resting up a lot.
Other than that, we were able to meet basically our only progressing investigator Maninoot. She's doing super well and always understands what we teach and has great questions to ask! One of my favorite was, "When we are in heaven. Will we be able to eat food?" Good question. If anyone can answer that, that would be great. She, however, broke the news to us that she might be moving back to her hometown where the church is non-existent. She is not sure yet. We are praying that she stays here so she can get baptism and continue building her already strong faith.
Yesterday, we were able to get a member to take Bong Sovan to church! It was way awesome and we hope we can continue to get members to fellowship her. The Korean church payed her a visit and is trying to get her to join their church too. *sigh*
Sister Soem got her patriarchal blessing yesterday and it was way cool for her! She kept asking ,e how long mine was because hers was so short. I could tell she was a little bummed, but we all tried telling her that her faith was so strong already and the Heavenly Father trusted her a lot!
This week, we are going to try to find more members houses and less-actives and maybe get help knowing the area. Also, we got two referrals yesterday so we will go see them this week and are super pumped! We are hoping this week will be a lot better than last week!! All we can do is work! I read this awesome quote from President Benson today that said if we work, we will have the spirit, and then we will be able to teach by the spirit, and then we will be able to touch the hearts of others. I wholeheartedly believe it! I love you all!!
