Moving to Monkey City

I couldn't be more proud of Elder Neal this week. Being asked to be a trainer is a big deal! That means that Keyen isn't only excelling in the gospel but he is also doing well in the Thai language, teaching skills, following mission rules and by being an over all good example! I'm so happy that he is really taking his mission experience to the max! Way to go Keyen!

Keyen was a bit sad to leave his previous area because he had such a good experience with a particular family there. He mentioned in a letter that he felt that this family was the reason that he was sent to Thailand and if he didn't baptize anyone else on his mission he wouldn't care because of what he was able to do for this family. But he is looking forward to many more great experiences and is ready to continue to serve the Lord.

Here's what he said about the week...

"Hey everyone! Whats up?? I hope you all are doing good! So my week was a very interesting one:) So I got transferred to a new area! I was way sad to leave my last area! But i got the call I was moving! Then the day before transfers I got a call from the Pres. .   He asked me if I would train a new missionary. So I said yea:) haha But then he said that the new missionary Ill be training wont be In Thailand for another two weeks:) So I got put into a new area with 2 other elders:) Once my new guy gets here ill be training him here:) So Im in a area called Lopburi. It is knows as the City of Monkeys! So in the main part of the city there are Monkeys everywhere!! Its seriously like planet of the apes!! The Monkeys are scary! They are wild and will steal stuff and bite if you dont give them food!! haha so that will be great fun! So one of my companions is a piano Master! He seriously is crazy! He told me to pick any three keys on the piano and he would make a song using those three notes as the main thing. So i picked three and he on the spot played this sick song!! I was blown away!! We played that game for a while!! haha Ive had the chance to met a lot of members here and they are all great! Such amazing members here in Thailand!! So thats about all i have for today! I love you all! You are always in my prayers!!:)

                                        Love, Keyen"

Keyen's favorite Tennis player Rafa Nadal was in Thailand last week so Keyen was pretty excited.

Missing you a lot Key but I am so happy that you are doing so well in Thailand. The Lord is looking out for you and is pleased with your work. 
We love you Elder Neal! Stay strong and work hard!
