Glad to know you all liked my poem.
Well the work was hurt a little bit by various activities like zone training, general conference, and everyone leaving to go to their srok for Pchum Ben. The stone cut out of the mountain without hands will roll forth, unless a Cambodian holiday comes through, in which case the stone breaks into a million little pieces and goes to hibernate for a few days before reassembling itself and rolling forth until the great Jehovah will come and say the work is done. Thanks Daniel.
But seriously, everyone is vacated out of the city right now and the mission is mandating us to clean our houses thoroughly tonight and tomorrow because they think it's better than just driving around and not having anywhere to go.
Conference was good. I liked a lot of what was said. I thought it was interesting in somebody's talk how they said that Laman and Lemuel had many faith-building opportunities, but didn't really put themselves into trying to want to believe.
We are trying to keep reigns on our investigators and I'm feeling a little better about some of them. They are really busy, but we are still going to help them to progress.
Note for next time: lock the door that you watched the english session of general conference in before the next session, because if you don't, the first counselor and his wife and their baby will go in there and take a nap on the floor and use the tablecloth as a blanket and he will also have his shirt off for some reason. Also, knock before reentering any rooms you may have previously inhabited. Just a word to the wise.
I got some videos for you on dropbox. Picture-wise, we see that English is still a very difficult language to learn.
Heidi's Note: The video link is below. When you click on it, the video will open in Dropbox. Once there, I noticed that if you click on the center triangle to play the video, the quality is a little choppy. So, instead of clicking on this triangle, find the box labeled "Open" in the top right corner of your screen, and click on it. This should open the video with the QuickTime player, and the quality will be better.
