        How's it going everybody!!! I am still doing fantastic, while me and Elder Slavens are just doing our roles here in this area! I really love serving this area! Here are the details how'd last week went!:

     Well we did joined a family home (Last Monday) that our recent convert wants us to joined which is Sou! He's still being awesome! 

   Last Tuesday, after District Meeting we're just doing all we can for today but none our appointments went through which is okay because me and Elder Slavens loves to talk with any body out on the streets over here.

   Last Wednesday, we were taking a portion of the day for us to contact around our area with the Vietnamese Elders except on this day I was with Elder Ngyuen not the picture you guys saw last week that looks Vietnamese that's another legend named Elder Guang! After that we met a new investigator we never really had a christian background but prayed for his 1st time after meeting/ learning a lesson with us this investigator's name's Seha! He's a cool guy. He did came to some other church before but he didn't know why there's different sects so we explained to him and it made sense to him. After all of that we had the Rean English Program which involves driving cars and knowing transportations. Later on we shared a spiritual thought about the ATONEMENT! 

    Last Thursday, well... blessedly me and Elder Slavens went out as early as we can to go out and proselyting or otherwise we couldn't get anything done... for example or here are some details, we were going to visit a member that's less-active that we thought is there but isn't but instead we contact as much as can around his home talking to some people that are establishing houses, then later we met with Non one of our investigators to re-discuss God's plan and the Family History Books! (Plus, how they relate!) Turns out the lesson's great... he gets it but has a long way to go to up to his potential. Still believe he can make it someday to become a member! Now the blessed part since then... after a big I am in charge of Weekly Planning... one of my biggest weaknesses in the mission. It takes a whole lot of time to recieve revelation and inspiration to know where should we go through each day of the next week and prayerfully hoping those we strive to meet can follow up or make it to meet with us in the following days.

It took me and Elder Slavens, mostly planning for the area for a week took me 7 hours to do a Weekly Planning Session now some of you would say..... in PMG it say that you shouldn't take more than 3 hours to weekly plan.... well it's got to be all done some how! Hahaha! (Good thing we proselyted early enough!)

  Few more days going by including Rean English Program and Church in Sunday's still excellent but through this weekend was "The King's birthday" which lasted 3 days treating this holiday as if it's Khmer New Year. *sigh* But that's okay we're still doing our best here! 

       TRANSFER CALL ALERT! We received a transfer call just last Sunday and me and Elder Slavens are serving with each other for 1 more transfer in Teuk La'ak! Round 2 in Teuk La'ak BABY!!! YEAH!!! Gotta to dash back into this great cause real fast! I still know that this Church where I am serving in Cambodia is truly true. I won't deny my testimony and me (including Elder Slavens) are choosing to PREACH IT ALL! Get ready to get cleaned "Dirty Water"! 

      Well, God bless each and every one of you stay phenomenal and blessed! Will be posting next week!

          How's it going everyone I would like to make this post short and sweet as necessary! Before this post I would like to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day! I love and miss my mom! Moms are the best! 

        So this week was straight forward we've been slowly receiving new investigators here and there in this area! Visiting people around the area still searching for those who wants to learn about the Gospel! 

Any particular details well, we started teaching a new investigator who thought church was at 3PM over but Stake Conference was on 9AM on that morning. So instead to make-up for him coming to church yesterday, we just taught him about the Restored Gospel! This new investigator's name Look Poo Piset! This is a Look Poo I contacted weeks ago and he's been going to our church constantly already! He's still cool and really loves to pray! 

I come across another investigator name Poo Kosal! Another cool guy, but does take work! And more encouragement on helping him pray to help him communicate with God! 

North Stake Conference was great! However, none of our investigators participate or attended it! Argh! Oh well! We'll still keep inviting them closer to Christ though! It was still great to see the members in the North Zone stay strong by attending this conference! 

So, sorry I had to cut this post short, but I just want to let you all know I am doing great hope the pictures I sent to you all with explain how'd last week went! I still love to serve my divine heritage I am here to stay! Plus, I am still here to work hard! Stay blessed and fantastic! Will be a posting a better post next week! Here I go! Gotta get busy with the reality of Missionary Work! If any of you all are praying that I don't get to "trunky" lately God bless you all because I really want to keep helping others come unto Christ to keep the gospel spreading!

        Best transfer hands down that I ever experienced in my entire mission, I can't just hold up my thoughts of what happened any longer from last week so here I go "PLEAM PLEAM" (immediately!):

     Well, on Last Tuesday (Note:April 26, 2016)  District Meeting was fantastic as usual, and this day was also literal #FearNoMan day when me and Elder Slavens and I contact anybody about the gospel no holding back, we don't even have much people to teach except a Less-active member named Ponleu. Other than that we spent most of the day just contacting over and over, even kicking REAN English Program to high gears. I even ended up preaching out loud to a neighborhood close to one of our recent convert's girlfriend's home. Me and Elder Slavens were about to visit one of our other investigator whom we're about to bluntly drop him dued to his progression (Chun) than all of a sudden this investigator wasn't so instead we prayed we contact furthermore around the area and just ended up testifying of the Gospel on front of a nieghborhood for a good while than a Look Puu that Elder Hunt and Elder Slavens contacted a while ago before I came into the area - wanted me and him to have a seat. It's probably on the most humbling missionary experiences I ever had in my life that I just use the power of my calling a missionary to bare testimony on a neighborhood even the drunk people behind the neighborhood went quiet for my testimony. Elder Slavens just stand there when I was like preaching then I was like what the "heck was I saying"? All of my testimony just burst out of my mouth since a random Neakming was asking me what race I am and just I deliberately ignore the question and just bluntly show what me and Elder Slavens are here to do! Yeah! 

   On Wednesday, we were visiting a active member in the Ward in Teuk Laak (our area of course)  to check how's he doing and committed him to help Elders in Branch 1 of Ta Khmau to help teach his brother over there this active cool member that's very good at English is know as "Mark"or Visal! Then later on I actually made a unusual attempt as me and Elder Slavens had permission from the Mission President is we had a small exchange with Vietnamese speaking Elder to have their helping contacting with us! Turns out it's tricky to adapt contacting with some one learning the Khmer language when fluent with Vietnamese, but got it all done I was contacting with Elder Nguyen for a while! Then later on we had a chance to meet a member that's less active but he returned to church as a return missionary whose known as Osophea! Cool guy, just helping understanding doctrine behind the restoration just to help him have a stronger testimony of the church although he's a return missionary. The Rean English Program was a blast just still going on helping students learning to pronounce words to help them understand English better for example "Where you go?".... the heck NO! it's "Where are you going?". Yep. We were invited to go to a setting apart of Mey and Mean the twins as they're about to become missionaries but the Stake President accidentally forgot and they got into a huge delay! Although me and Elder Slavens aren't able to participate on the setting apart we're very proud for the both of them to decided to serve there missions in Portland, Oregon, and the other in Salt Lake City, Utah leaving the home country for a while soon! 

    Last Thursday, we met up with Non again just watch the Restoration with him to help him understand why we met with him a lot lately. He does take work, but no one can force each other to get up to there spiritual potential in life. After that we had a big lunch having Elder Guang one of the Vietnamese Elder's Ribs in our apartment. He pulled off the fall-of-the-bone making me think he topped off "Dinosaur BBQ". (Check my hometown for more details.) Then, we just bother talking with several more people around the area to see if others want to learn about Jesus Christ and his Church! (Of course, we did Weekly Planning for a while but it got done for preparation's sake and always helping this area constantly!) What a good day! 

    This is what I though to be the big main event, but Elder Slavens believe what happened last Tuesday was pretty much it, I had the opportunity to serve with Elder Khiev from Kampong Cham Branch 2, Cambodia - ROUND 2 since a year ago since I was "born" in Ta Khmau Branch 2, except we both change. When I had the call in the last minute yesterday about having the exchange with him I was in doubt being the one to lead but turned out that as I embraced the exchange, it turned that this exchange was one of the best exchanges I ever experience in my mission I just basically what I was suppose to do on the agenda that the Holy Spirit wanted me and Elder Khiev to do and we done! I was super happy and yet I learn a whole lot with him since having this precious and sacred exchange! We've visiting some members that are Less active and did spend majority of the day contacting. That was so fun! Elder Khiev's the Elder though literally learning a lot as much as I learned from him! One of the most memorable exchanges ever in my life! 

    On Saturday, we had REAN English Program again on the morning with somewhat the same lesson format of the week and we pulled the class off pretty well, the students enjoyed English class because we are doing our best to teach English since we know it! Before hand I had a mini-exchange with Elder Try from Kiens Svay to have language study which was great! Then later me and Elder Slavens check on our recents converts finally meeting Sackda seeing how's he doing, like investigator he does take work, but does take a lot more uplifting and committing other to apply FAITH without leaning on Elders! Throughout more of the day both of us went to go contacting find more people to learn about the Gospel and then we decided to visit Poo Broh and his family to share a important lesson that's beneficial to them known as FASTING! Was a fun appointment and loving family to visit and help them come closer back to Christ as they're doing their best as a family! 

     Yesterday, we met up a new investigator this morning having help from who's formally known as "Elder Pom" meeting a cool Look Puu who works as a Guard know as Puu Kosal! Very excellent 1st lesson with he's been very open and understand of what we're sharing with him. He felt that God wanted us to meet and it happened! Goodness sakes I love this area so dearly! Church was great me and Elder Slaven bored Testimony throughout the Fast and Testimony meeting, some members from a different wards even bored strong testimony of the truthfulness of this Church. I really love this mission very much! I can forget this experience ever! BEST MISSION EVER! I am so grateful to have the opportunity to do my best to serve my divine heritage no matter, how many times they reject it while some are willing to hear what me and Elder Slavens share in these Latter-days! 

        I am a huge believer of miracles, I know that I am important to God and I know that that Gospel CAN bless anybodies just as long as we soften our hearts for it! Our job and life on earth is to become our best selves spiritually and physically as each of us take time to embrace the Gospel into our live, we truly be happy enough to even bless our families including! Plus, I know that Jesus Christ is truly the savior and our redeemer. My calling and authority as a missionary HAS POWER I know that I am called by God to serve my divine heritage no matter how much the adversary thinks how inadequate I am! Well, gotta get going! My time in this mission is actually! I am excited to skype my family soon ounce more! I am thankful for those who has been super supportive to me especially my ward family who's been cheering me on. Missions are indeed the hardest thing any member of the church can do but it can be done for I do know that with God all things are possible! Allons-Y! Stay Fantastic and God bless you all! And I close this post in the sacred name of Jesus Christ. Amen. (Despite that I lost my wallet - my second one luckily I kept my absolutely important stuff in our apartment I was still able to just keep going doing the Lord's work! Yeah!)

P.S. The Gospel of Jesus Christ does indeed gives us true hope! And I will never regret serving in this mission because I love it so dearly in my heart! 

"I fear no man." - Elder Farbrizio Ricciardi from a mission in England

 "Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend. And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them.  And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the love of God, and always retain a remission of your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true." - Mosiah 4:9-10,12
