Khmer New Year was awesome!We had a booth at El Dorado Park for one of the biggest celebrations outside of Cambodia. We Painted a giant Cambodian Book of Mormon, made posters, and woke up at 4:30 to set up.
During the day we proselyted from 9 AM to 5 PM. We handed out over 1000 pamphlets and cards. It was a really successful day for our church! We did a little shopping and had some really great Khmer food. This is what I have learned... In the Cambodian culture you can basically say anything obvious about someone and they don't care. You could call someone ugly and it'd be a normal thing.
Last week I was probably the most tired I've been in a LONG time. Earlier in the week, I had to wake up really early 3 other times which makes for really long days. We woke up at 4 to go to the LA temple, 6 to exercise for longer, and then we also woke up at 5:30 to get to zone conference on time, which was all the way in Whittier. SO, I'm tired.
Yea, I know...I don't like my haircut too much, but it's easy, and I don't ever have to worry about it. I'm probably going to let it grow long again.
Ganya got baptized yesterday and it was a great service.
HUMOR FOR THE WEEK...
THIS IS THE LOCAL ICE CREAM TRUCK. YOU THINK ICE CREAM TRUCKS ARE SAFE FOR CHILDREN....UM...
News: there are now two stakes in CAMBODIA! Which is huge! We're not the only Cambodian ward in the world anymore! It's so awesome. The church is spreading fast there!
