So another funny thing that I learned this week was the word tomada, which translates to regular. When people ask how your day is going, you can just say tomada (regular), which cracks me up because it makes me think of my brother Luke. When we used to ask how his day was going he would always say, "medium" :) haha Well, now he can say the same thing in a different language... tomada!!

The performances and the talks were amazing and the Spirit that was there was unspeakable!! It was so cool to see people from all over Cambodia gathered together as one body to celebrate the wonderful gift of the Gospel in their country! It was an experience I will never forget!! I have come to realize that in America, we just don't get it! haha Everyone is so prideful and to themselves, but here everyone is just one big family!! It is so awesome! It does not matter if they know you or not... everyone gives everyone big hugs and asks about how your life is going and if you need anything! If the whole world were filled with personalities like the people of Cambodia, it would be such a better place!!

Anyway, other than that I don't have too much other news. Bonyaa got her date moved up to the 21st because she is just doing so awesome! It has been so great to be able to watch her grow these past couple of weeks! A bit of sad news is that the Bong Narit family that I love might have to leave because they do not have the means to stay in the city. It has been super hard on me and I really do not want them to go because they are basically my second family and I love each one of them so much, but I know that whatever happens they have strong testimonies of the Gospel and they will be able to overcome their trials!! Anyway, that's all for me this week! I am so glad to be serving here and to be able to have all these wonderful and hard experiences!! I love you all so much! Thanks for all of your love and support!!
Until next week,
