Well, she had to be escorted out........

Yep, we wore the same shirt!!!! Her husband just shook his head and laughed.

This week has been me saying a lot of goodbyes and preparing for Noppamas' baptism. It was quite an interesting week!

For Enrichment or whatever they call it these days, we taught them how to make chocolate chip cookies (Nestle Toll House version) They LOVED it!!!!!! Even our Branch President and a couple priesthood showed up to get a nibble of the heavenly goodness. That was funny! The Relief Society president then went on to explain how farangs are so healthy because we eat chocolate. Apparently chocolate is just so good for our health that that is the reason we never get sick. I was like, "Yes, that's exactly it!" or it could be that we wash our hands and actually know how to take care of our food. She encouraged them all to eat more chocolate.

Sis. Lish had quite the scare this week. We came home at night and were walking in the house when she felt something in her skirt. She moved her skirt around when all of the sudden a cockroach fell out. You should've heard her scream! No worries, he's now moved on from this life.

Noppamas and Pa Lersan

Okay, so this sunday was Noppamas' baptism. It went really well. I think a lot of the members thought she already was a member considering that I started teaching her my 2nd day in Roiet. Ya, it's been awhile. So the baptism went well, but the rest of the sunday was quite a comedy.

All of us for Noppamas' baptism

To begin, let me set up the day.It was Sis. Lish's birthday along with Harry Potter. So in honor of this grand occasion we needed a cake. So Sis. Lish whipped up a homemade cake as the members came in to church, but we ran out of time so we just let the half-baked cake sit in the oven till the end of church.

As we were about to walk into the chapel, the Elders came out of the girl's bathroom carrying a snake. Looks like Moaning Myrtle is at it again! :) After they flinged the snake across the road, we all went into the chapel. I sat in the back corner with this family with a bunch of young boys about 8-11 yrs. old.

In the middle of the meeting they got into their mom's purse and were applying her makeup on each other's faces. Is it just me or is that something really weird for boys to be doing? Then they started play wrestling and the grandma had to split them up. That was a little crazy. So they're very energetic boys!

For Sunday School and Relief Society we had to translate. Exhausting!

Then we taught the youth how to sing "If you could hie to Kolob"
I'm just so glad that the members help out with our investigators. They're great. Don't even have to worry about them.

Then we went to go finish the cake. We opened the oven and it was done, with 2 slices taken out of it. No worries, I made everyone sing happy birthday to Sis. Lish!

Then it was the baptism. A lady who digs through the garbage as a living came to church drunk (she's the girlfriend of an investigator). She came up to me and gave me a big hug. I was not thrilled in the least. I had to pry her off. She hugged Sis. Lish and she tried to hug Elder Ackerman, but he got away.
Then in the meeting before the baptism she came in and started yelling at her boyfriend and hitting him. She had to be escorted out, but she kept coming back in. So a member had to sit out with her so that she wouldn't go back in. We were all laughing on the stand and in the audience. It was quite the scene. At least her baptism was memorable!
It was quite the Sunday! What a way to go out of Roiet! Love it!

Love you all!!!!
