So first off, Cambodia has been approved for two stakes!! North District and South District in Phnom Penh are becoming stakes! First stakes in the country. The end of May will be the official creation of the stakes. So that is very exciting!
The new comp is great. And he is a hard worker and follows the rules, so that is nice. He is a pretty cool guy.
A week before transfer calls my previous companion and another elder in the house said that I could not memorize "The Family, A Proclamation to the World" in Khmer in a week. So I had extra time to study, and I finished it a day early.
So yesterday we had a new branch president called. He is a new member and has been a member for about 14 months. Before he was the first councilor in the elders quorum pres. And for councilors in the bishopric he called the old elders quorum president and the 2nd councilor. The new branch president is really cool, and I think he will do a great job.
So this week was awesome. We were teaching this one lady who had not been to church for over a year, and this was on Friday when I was proselyting with Elder Taylor for a day before Elder Brewer came. But we were teaching her with the district president, and while we were teaching her the whole Elders quorum presidency came in (now the branch presidency) and she was super happy, and on Sunday came to church!!!!! Yay! Also another inactive family that we have been working with that has not come to church for over at least a year or so, came to church yesterday! And this recent convert less active family that hasn't come for over six months came to church. So for less actives yesterday was AWESOME! I think that is my calling in Battambong, cause I have had more success with less actives in Battambang than any other area.
