Loving It!

Heeey Everyone!!

So I've been thinking for a long time on what to write today... I thought about a few miracles that we witnessed this past week... Or it'll be awesome to share a few stories behind our recent converts... And of course I always love to brag about how amazing the members are here...

But at the end of it all, I decided that I'll take this time to testify of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This is my testimony. With all soberness, I declare this to the world; to all of my family members, friends, even classmates from high school that don't remember me as a preacher of religion... that Jesus is the Christ. He is the Son of God, and only through Him, can we be with our God again!

The Prophet, Alma taught... "no unclean thing can inherit the Kingdom of Heaven" God, our Heavenly Father desires for us to return to Him, the Kingdom of God is surely not something that is easily attainable... We have to meet His standard. . Heaven would not be Heaven for those who chose not to live Heavenly. God knows we can't accomplish this by ourselves. Therefore, He prepared a way for us... through Christ, who was prepared from the foundation of the world to redeem His people. To redeem is to ransom, to free or rescue by paying a price, to free from the consequences. I am truly thankful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and as a missionary in the awesome Thailand Bangkok Mission, I simply extend the invitation that Jesus gave... for all of us toFollow Him

I am so stoked for this month!! I can't believe it's almost the end of another year! Right now, our Mission is on fire!! Especially my Ubon zone!! This is my second transfer in Ubon, and I just want to stay here to contribute to the exciting work that is taking place!!

Also a big shout out to Kuuipo, who got his mission call to the Samoa, Apia Mission!!! Waaaaaaaay stoked for this guy as he serves with my bro, Isaiah!

I am happy more than ever. I'm also proud of my older sister, Ashley who is in the Ohio, Cleveland Mission  now!!! :D This is just so awesome. I love being in Thailand. I love the language, the people, the food (even though it is wrecking my digestive tracks), and just everything about this work. We're working hard. All of us are. Everywhere we go, at every opportunity, we invite them to church, to be baptized, and be changed forever! It's not that easy... when about 99.8% of people reject the message you carry... but the people are there. There are people ready, and we know when we meet them! I'm so glad to be a missionary. I'm so grateful for my parents, who endured my stubbornness with love. That is all I have for today! Transfer meeting is coming up in two weeks, and everybody thinks I'll be a trainer next transfer! I don't know what's going to happen, but I'm just excited for each and every day!!

Love you all,

Elder Takeuchi
