Hello family and friends! It is just me or is March just dragging on?? We are down to the single digits in months till Elder Neal comes home but the closer it gets the ancipatoon gets worse!! Ugh!!

But exciting news! Keyen was made a District Leader which means he is in charge of all the missionaries in his area and reports things to the zone leaders. If you know Keyen he has mixed feelings about it haha! He doesn't like being told what to do and in his words, "the zone leaders will basically tell me everything I am doing wrong." Oh Keyen!

Anyway here is what Keyen said about the week..

"Hello everyone!! How are you all doing!! I hope all is going good! This week went by very fast! But it was a good week. We had a lot of success with inviting. So we were able to meet with a bunch of new people!! We have a few people right now with a date to be baptized so hopefully we can help prepare them for that date! On pday I went and hung out with some elephants so that was fun! The was this baby elephant and it was soo cute and fun!! We had a Easter activity at the church on Saturday and it went pretty well. Not a whole lot of people came but it was a good way to remember why Easter is so important. Other that that this week was another normal week. Things are getting better here in Surin. we are starting to get the branch moving so hopefully the progress with continue! I love and miss you all!!! "

Two in One

I've got 2 updates from Keyen in the last 2 weeks. Sorry for slacking off! 


"Wow so much weird crazy things happened this week!! So last Sunday I gave a blessing to a man in the hospital. He looked like he was so miserable and in pain. He had a tube in his nose and another down his throat. His sister (who is a member) wanted us to give him a blessing. So I gave him a blessing. When I gave the blessing i felt prompted to tell him to be at peace, and to not worry and to be afraid. After the blessing his body Immediately seemed to just relax. He just looked at us. His son was there and thanked us. Well the next morning that man passed away. We went to his funeral and his son wanted to know more. He new there was something special about the knowledge we had. So that was a really cool thing! The other crazy thing was when I went to the hospital to visit a less-active member who works at the hospital. So little did I know he is the guy who deals with all the dead bodies!! so he told us to wait because he had to go do something. So we waited in front of his office, then he comes over wheeling in a dead body!! Then he asked me to help him move it and wrap it up in a blanket!! So I did!! Then the next night he asked me to come over to visit him. So we went and we did it again!!!!! I had to handle a dead body twice!!! Oh gosh!!!!! Other than that though it was a good week:) haha I hate to end it on that note but thats all i got!! haha I love and miss you all!!:)

                           Love , Keyen:)"


"Yo whats up everyone:) Its been a good week! Its only been a few days since i emailed last and honestly not a whole lot has happened!! It has been soooo hot lately!! Over 100 for the last couple of days!! Its been way humid too!! So hot season has officially begun! It sucks!! The other day I went to a members house and helped trim this tree in her yard. It took forever!! And there were like Five big beehives in the tree so we had to smoke out all the bees before we could start! But I t was fun! I feel the happiest when I am doing a service project like that. Luckily the skills I developed being Grandmas personal Grounds keeper paid off! So yea, Other than that not a whole lot has happened so far this week. I did find a new investigator who is awesome! We taught her once and the spirit was way strong!! I know she felt it. She told us she felt something different. So that was cool! Hopefully she will progress well. Well thats about all i have for this week:) I wont have a pday this monday so Illbe on in like 9 days haha! Well goodbye! I love you all!:)

                                   Love, Keyen"
