And Then The Student Became The Teacher

From Karsten Hinckley
Teaching in Thailand

This past week we have gotten to meet with Sister Booy (who was recently baptized) and teach her all the lessons over again. She lost her phone so we have no way to contact her. The other day, we went to buy some food for fast Sunday and she called us and said she was at the church. We hadn’t set up an appointment with her, so we were just a little confused. We went to the church and found her there. A member who lives across the street from the church saw her and let her use her phone to call us. We had decided to have a lesson about some of the commandments but right before we were about to teach her, we thought that watching Finding Faith in Christ was better.

We got that all set up, and then the member who lives across the street had a non member friend walk into the church! So then we decided to have Sister Booy help us teach this lady. The lady was just going on and on about how her kids are bad and how she has the dogs that bark all the time. If you ask me, the dogs sound like a personal problem. Haha. Anyways, we taught her and she is now a new investigator. A funny string of events; It all led to something good though. 

This past week I also started the Book of Mormon over again. I read everything up until the end of 1 Nephi. You can learn soooo much just from reading that. If you haven’t had the chance to do so in a while, I suggest that you take some time and read it. You will learn so much from it, I promise you. If you haven’t read the Book of Mormon yet, I encourage you to do so. It will help you to have more happiness in your life, I promise.
