Sky tree

Mom and Dad

Well today has been a great day! 
We did a lot of fun things!! 
We went to sky tree and then on the way back we accidentally went to this really big shrine here, it was way cool and a lot of fun!! 

Anyways Sister Combs is the bomb!! I love her so much. We get a long so well. It's fun because we are the same doki. So we have been on the mission for the same amount of time. It's fun because we both know how a mission works and what needs to be done and what not. It is also nice because we don't have to worry about someone being the senior companion or something. We are both equal and it rocks I love it! Anyways!! She is the bomb!! ISO basically everyone in the entire mission has been thinking this same question lately... "What was president Budge thinking putting Sister Brown and Sister Combs as companions?"
But I think it was a great decision. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to train Sister Johnson. I really hope I helped her out and was able to teach her many things.

So this past week we saw to really awesome miracles!! On Thursday we met this awesome Chinese lady and we were able to set up an appointment with her for Saturday night. We went and ate dinner together. We also named her Karen. It's really interesting working with her because she has never once been to church she has never believed in God she has never prayed or just anything. Like it's just weird. But she is great. After dinner we went to the church and did a church tour it was tons of fun!! I loved it. There was actually a ward party going on and Karen was being to funny. She was talking with everyone and making jokes and it was great!! 

Then we also saw another huge miracle on Sunday! On Saturday night after planning we didn't have anyone coming to church. It was a completely bummer. We prayed really hard that someone would come tomorrow. We invited almost everyone that we know so we were hoping for a miracle. On Sunday during sacrament meeting it happened. Our Investigator Sonpon and her daughter hinako came to church. She said that they had been at the doctors and were right by the church so they decided that they would come by. Sonpon loved it too!! She really loved sacrament meeting. She listened so intently and really enjoyed it. She said that she felt such a great feeling. Then we went to primary for hinako chan. During that we talked about Jesus Christ. And Sonpon started telling us how she remembers learning about Jesus when she was in school. And she knew so much about him. It was so amazing. We talked a lot about him and we were able to show her the because of him video in Thai so she could understand it. Today we also gave her a Book of Mormon in Thai. She is way excited to start reading it. She is so interested in it. She also loved how everyone was so kind to hinako and how they taught her such great things. She was a little bummed that we only have primary once a were because she wants hinako to learn more and more. I am pretty sure that next week they will come again because of how great this week was! 

This week we weren't able to meet with Ma. She was going out of town and she couldn't come to church on Sunday. But no worries. I know Ma. And she is great and she wants to start meeting more often so that makes me way excited!! 

Thank you so much for caring so much about me and my investigators. It really means a lot to me. I know that this transfer is going to bring so many good things I am way pumped for it!! I love it. 

Sounds like Arizona was way fun! I am sorry if my email this week sounds way dumb. We just got a little behind and yeah... I don't have lots of time!! 
I love you so much and I am so thankful for everything that you have been doing for me!! Thanks for being great!
