(The 97th week) 58 days 'til I die..

Hey guys! There was a mission combined conference between Sydney North and South missions last Friday in Sydney. It was a great opportunity for me to bring a gift to my beloved son Elder Warth. I got a pack of A&W root beer for him and I could tell that he was very happy to have that. Ayee I love my son so much!

There also was a stake conference last week, a lot of interesting talks and I really enjoyed the spirit of the Lord there. We had one of the seventies with us, I don't remember his name but I learned heaps from him though. One of the talk from the conference that I like was about if you want the blessings, keep the commandments but if you want the bigger blessings, do missionary work! This really touched my heart because I have been receiving a lot of blessings from doing missionary work and I am very grateful for that.

Oh! and one of the thing that I wanted to mention is Leila just got a confirmation yesterday after the stake conference! Hah finally, she is a full member of the Church of Jesus Christ now. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-days Saints is the only true church of God and the gospel itself is from God.

I was very tired because there were a lot of events. I gotta rest more today and I hope you guys will have a great week! Stay safe!!!!!!!

(The 96th week) 65 days 'til I die..

Hey hey hey! G'day mates! Days passed by pretty quick in Newcastle and guess what?! Our week was filled with joy and happiness with a baptism and of course, it was Leila. Can't believe that Leila got baptised already! It'd been forever since she first had a discussion with the missionaries. Well, I must be the one then I'm so into myself LOL! However, I'm so happy that Leila's chosen the right way to walk with our loving Heavenly Father.
The week was alright, we found it hardly to find investigators and we got no one(I'm going to cry) but there were a few services for us to help people and we were so happy to have those opportunities to help people.
I really do love gardening since I came on the mission. I planted a lot few weeks ago and they all are growing up real fast as you see in the picture. #Helptheworld
Another thing that I did was helping a member to push his broken car to his house. Don't laugh at me yet, I'm pretty strong. #CaptainAmerica
I think helping people is a great opportunity to share your love and also Heavenly Father's love to others and by helping them, Heavenly Father will give us blessings back for sure!

Another thing I wanted to menion before I go is I met an Elder named Elder Maloney months ago and I think we are good friends(I think!). His father served a mission in Thailand though. We talked a lot about Thailand and it was fun. That's how we became friends. Well, I really want to know his father since I knew from Elder Maloney that his father has been reading my blog for months and I hope he will read this one. I'd love to be his another son (I'd say 'friend' but in Thailand it's not common) haha if you see this, please email me ;)

I hope you guys will have a good week and don't forget that I'm thinking and praying for most of you.

(The 95th week) 72 days 'til I die..

Hello guys! How are things? I'm still counting the day to go home lol Must be trunky eh! I will still say that I miss Thai food so much. It's the only thing that I miss back home besides my family hahaha. 

For the investigators, Leila is getting a baptismal interview tonight and I hope things will go well for her. If she passed the interview, she will be baptised on this Sunday after church. I'm so grateful and excited for her great decision to follow Christ. I know that it is true and is the only way to go back to our Heaven Father's present.

Well, I have nothing much to write I will come back and report about Leila to you guys next week. Hope you all will enjoy the pictures at 7-11 and have a good week guys!

(The 94th week) 79 days 'til I die..

Hey Hey Hey! It's me again Elder Timtam. Ahhh transferred already... the first week was alright. Without a car, I think the work is kinda slower, so much slower than before. However, it won't stop our faith from going out. Most of the missionaries in the district moved out and left me alone. 

This week, we were able to visit a few people 'cause its been raining a lot. 
Welcome Sister Senanikhom from Mahasarakham branch (I actually don't know how to write her name) It's been a long time since the last time I saw her. However, I am very happy that I have a chance to serve with a Thai missionary before I am going home.

(The 93rd week) 86 days 'til I die..

I just got my trunky letter this morning and I think it is awesome to know when I am going home. Anyway for the transfer this transfer, my companion will be moving to my last area which is Chatwood! hoorah Chatwang! and I will be staying in Newcastle for more and be having a Chinese companion whose name is Elder Dong! dong dee dong dee! I am very excited to be with him here Unfortunately, we won't have a car anymore 'cause none of us drives. Well, must be walking all the way to Heaven then.
Not much this week. We were able to teach Leila and Jane. Leila will still be baptised but we pushed her baptism to the 2nd week of March but Jane is not progressing for a moment. She's having a problem with coffee and tea. Of course, most of people are. Sorry not enough time to write but I will write you all more next week. Have a great week!

(The 92nd week) 93 days 'til I die..

I just got my michigan test's score today! I got 73 out of 100 but I didn't pass because they need 75! which is 2 more points that I have to get. I can tell that it is not easy for a non English speaker like me ;( Awww such a poor boy on this beautiful earth!

Anyway... Hi guys! How are you going? I hope things are going good for you all. This week was such an awesome week more than I expected it to be. First off we had a trade off with one of my favourite missionary Elder Chase or I called him Elder Chasie! I just loved this name :) He's a very nice guy since I saw him develop himself to be more humble. To be honest, I learned a lot from him in a short time that we had together such as how to be patient! He'd never give up to share his love to everyone who is around him. SCORED!!
There was also a baptism in the district! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to get to know this awesome guy Luke. He's such a hilarious person and he is very smart. Since he got to know with the missionary few weeks ago, he knows many things about Christ's true church now. I know that the baptism is the only way that allowed us to get on the way to Heavenly Father and I know that by our obedience to His laws, we will be able to live with Him and our family again after this life.
There was a special training meeting which combined two zones  the Newcastle North zone and the Gosford Zone together. I learned a lot of things from it such as having more faith to find somebody to teach, and how to respond the questions of the people about the Book of Mormon the musical that will be performed in this month in Sydney. So far so good, no one really asks about it. The conference was alright. I was just tired for the whole time there but I was happy to see friends there!
We got a chance to see a conference from Salt Lake City, Utah yesterday. Luckily, I was able to see some members from the Cessnock ward there! Sounded like I didn't really care about the conference but I was so very happy to see them. especially, the ex-bishop's family of the ward.
To end this email today I just wanted to tell you that there is a transfer next week!!!!!!! I will tell you what is gonna happen next Monday!

(The 91st week) 100 days 'til I die..

I don't know if I mentioned about my interview to you guys yet. I don't remember what week that I had the interview with my mission president. However, I will just reveal some things from the interview today.
First off president gave me 2 options to finish my mission here in Newcastle or to have another area. Well, I chose to finish here in Newcastle 'cause I love this area and the people already! It is depends on president anyway.
I also shared my goals of this year to president and one of them was to finish strong. Then president told me that he would let me train a poor new missionary again next transfer LOL! but this time I feel like that that guy is gonna be an Asian. I'm very excited for that but we'll see! 
That's all I want to mention about my interview.

For the investigators..
We didn't have a lesson with Leila, nevertheless she came to church. She isn't gonna make it on her baptismal date on Feb 10th but she told us that she feels more confident about her baptism so we are planing to push it back just 1-2 weeks so she could be more ready. I respect her choice though. She is awesome!

Craig - we taught him The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Everything was good and we left him with a commitment to pray if he would like to get baptised. Anyway he's moving to another zone though. I'm so sad for that but I'm happy that  he's able to learn of Christ and have more faith in Christ.

We also have a child baptism yesterday and it was awesome! I'm grateful for the opportunity to teach her and also I know that she will go well on her life because she's walking on the Lord's path!
A lovely training from sister Wang at district meeting!
We will have a special conference this week and I hope it will be fun! I will come back and report to you guys next week!
I really love sharing the gospel or the teaching of Christ. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and THEY love us so much!
