Cambodia Town

Cambodia Town

Monday, April 28, 2014


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.
Elder Low and Elder Fowler are leaving a week from tomorrow (pictured here on the right), so it will be the three of us for awhile. I'll probably go back to the apartment on Walnut. 

Ganya got baptized yesterday and it was a great service.

We started teaching her a few months ago, but it wasn't until recently she really wanted to get baptized. Her husband has a ton of cousins in Utah, who are all Mormon, so we are working really hard to get him baptized as well. He really likes church, and has a lot of friends here, and his wife just got baptized, so that should be enough force to influence him. He really likes church too, so it's just a matter of time! 


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!

PS  It is safest to continue to send all mail/packages to the mission home address:  6500 E Atherton St., Long Beach, CA 90815.
Sending good thoughts and love to you all!

  1. There are windows around the entire Rolex booth, and in the replica watches uk display case windows are many existing Rolex watches as well as the new ones. The new ones have a little "new" label next to them and are covered with a little cloth hood. When the time is right (usually in the early afternoon on the press-only day of replica watches uk Basel) Rolex opens up the case and pulls off the hoods–pretty much all at the same time–to reveal the new watches. After that it is a de facto point of conversation to discuss "the new Rolex watches" and everyone asks each other whether replica watches uk the new Rolex watches are enough, or properly new, or interesting. There is usually a consensus that rolex replica sale the watches will sell but that Rolex hopefully will "go further more next year." Nevertheless, we continue to be eager and esteemed about what Rolex has up its sleeves. In a few more days we will participate in replica watches uk the unveiling ceremony once again!
