Transferred to Battambang.

No pictures today, but Edward received word that he is being transferred to Battambang which is near the Thailand border. He has had a great experience in Ta Khmau, but could not be more excited for the new challenge. He is being made senior companion and district leader. His new companion is a Cambodian, Elder Kim. Edward reports being "stoked" for the change.

Many Investigators At Church


Yesterday we had 5 investigators come to church! I think that is the highest I have ever gotten. So that was cool. One of them was a milk lady, ya. So that is pretty cool. But the sad thing is that our golden investigator didn't come to church, we were planning on baptizing him this coming sunday but now we have to postpone it :(, and by this may be my last sunday in TaKhmau. Good news, Bora came again! Three weeks in a row, after 6 months of teaching him I think he will actually get baptized! All of the investigators from English class have stopped learning.  Next week Nisaay is going to get baptized (Tib's little bro) he is a boss, I am excited for that. 

This week we got 3 new investigators, and they are all pretty good. One came to church yesterday, and already has strong faith, the other two are very interested, we'll see what happens. 

Also last week we were at home for p-day and were both feeling a little lazy and didn't want to go out to go get hair cuts (cause we forgot earlier and really needed them.)  So we just cut each others hair, and it actually turned out well. 

Because of service, sickness, and meeting with the president, by thursday morning we only had two lessons, but we pulled out 17 by the end of the week. 
Love,
Elder Plothow

Couldn't pass up snapping a picture of this Christmas tree at Luckies.

Another Good Week in Ta Khmau.


Well another week has gone by here in TaKhmau. This was a very fun week. Things are going great. Things with the comp are awesome! Comp study is always fun gospel discussions about what we studied, super fun. I am excited to go to a new area because I have been in this one longer than the MTC and KC combined. 

Church yesterday was good no complaints, we had three investigators come! Tib's little brother Nisaay, Tib's cousins Piarome, and Bora! I have been teaching Bora since coming to TaKhmau and this is the first week he has come 2 weeks in a row! Whoot whoot. During church a guy fainted, and all the members were going crazy, but it all turned out well. 

Elders Stanley and Choi found this one guy who was interested in why Americans are in Cambodia. And he said we could come visit it him at his house (just for fun, not to learn), he is in our area so on Friday night when a few lessons fell through and we had nothing to do, we went and paid him a visit, he invited us into his house (his house is super big and nice, and cool) during the conversation we told him that sometimes we go to a far area called Kah Koh, (we go there once a week, it is about 12 or 15 kilos away, and has about 20 members there, but Thib, and her family live out there) anyways he said one day he would want to accompany us. (he likes biking for exercise) Then I said, "we are going tomorrow if you would like to come." He agreed and came, he listened in to some of our lessons, and afterwards said he wants to become a member. I am not sure how serious he is, but hey how cool is that?
