Okay, I have a lot to say and a short time to say it. :) Please ignore typoes.

So, as the music coordinator, I coordinated a musical number this past week in Sacrament. It was really neat! There was one Thai missionary, one Cambodian, One Hmong, and one Vietnamese, and they each sang a verse of I need thee every hour in their language and then did the chorus in english. It was so cool! Those are all the languages at my zone here. Also Laotian is one, but no one is here for that right now. It turned out really well!
So yeah, me playing the flute here. It is a long story that goes something like this. I asked several accompaniasts. And they couldn't play it. I found one, he is a piano majoring, seems promising. He didn't show up to first practice, he showed up to 2nd. It will definitely work. He doesn't show up to 3rd practice... he doesn't show up to 4th practice which has been set up 3 hours earlier. It's really awkward... After a SUPER awkward encounter with him, I retrieved my piano music back and returned it to the music library, doomed to not play the flute. And now I see him all the time and he says Hi to me as if we are the best childhood friends... hahha!!! It is the awkwardest funniest thing ever! I seriously can't tell you how much it spices up my day to see him around and see him think that he didn't do anything wrong whatsoever... silly guy. So yeah, i'll be sending my flute back.
The word for blue and green in Khmae are the exact same word. The exact same. No distinction. How is that even okay?
I suggest each of you take a minute to read 1 Nephi 11 and just feel how much Heavenly Father loves and Christ loves each of us. We read that as a class this week and I swear I was like on the verge of tears.
|Service. The best thing ever. |
We use power sprayers to clean the showers.
Best. Thing. Ever.
I watched another devotional by Jeffery R. Holland, and I've decided I'm his number 1 fan. Obviously excluding relations or anyone who actually knows him, I am his number one fan. Every time after he speaks, I am inspired to be a better missionary. He is brilliant!!
Also Russel M. Nelson came yesterday and spoke to us! It was incredible!! He spoke a lot about how missionary work is on both sides of the veil. It was just great.
Turns out, I have been saying the work "yes" incorrectly, as has pretty much all the other sisters, for the past 8 WEEKS I HAVE BEEN HERE?!?!?! Our teachers didn't think that was important?? Hahhahaahaha what? It's a minor difference, but kinda like I big deal. I guess we've been saying the word "fried" instead of "yes" this whole time. That is hilarious!
So I've been thinking, what was my purpose in life before I was a missionary? Did I do anything worthwhile? I think I only was doing things for myself... POINTLESS!! Wow, i'm always going to be a missionary.
I love you all! I'll talk to most/some of you when I'm at the airport.
