Elder Dillon Haughton 18th Letter from Thailand

I am amazing. Things are amazing. I’m better from my sickness. My voice is back fully. Brother Form and Tha were baptized this Saturday and I got to baptize Brother Tha 🙂 my Thai isn’t as good as I thought because I needed to do the ordinance three times hahahaha way embarrassing but memorable non the less :). This Sunday, well this Sunday I knelt down in prayer, and reflecting on the examples of some members here, and began to weep. I was consumed with the love of God and ever since that prayer and the experience I’ve had a change of heart, With a determination to not do evil, to be exactly obedient, to fear god and recognize my own nothingness in all things I do. I will praise my God forever for that experience and what I felt during that prayer. I walked back into the room were Elder Osborne was face all swollen from crying hahaha and just said DUDE!! I love God so much!! I’ve really gotten close to Elder Osborne during this time. It is sad because I might be moving :/ I love Chiang Rai so much! This morning we woke up at 2 am to go see the sunrise on the tallest mountain in Thailand. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay pretty 🙂 most incredible thing I’ll probably ever see. Hope you enjoy the pictures 🙂 Your Elder Haughton 🙂

Okay you would not believe the hell I had to travel through to get to this computer to email! Living it up in Chiang Mai, had to come down for District Conference and it was amazing!! Everyone was commenting on how many more people they had from Chiang Rai this year. PRIDE BOOST! To bad my prides kinda gone because I’ve been sick the past couple of days. I’m all better and have not taken any days off working, working my butt into the ground, including sleeping on the floor in the elders house here. Everything is good except my voice sounds absolutely horrid haha! Hoping its better by the time we get back to Chiang Rai. But yeah so district conference was great Elder Gong from the seventy came! It was amazing Love that man!! During the meeting we needed to get all these translating equipment to the folks that couldn’t speak Thai and some of the equipment didn’t work. It was stressful. So yeah way spiritual experience this one guy showed up who only spoke French and we had no translators for him………and I took three years in high school…….you know what that means to a fluent French speaker?……..nothing. I suck at French but I sat by him and drew what the speakers were talking about his kids laughed haha a lot of fun! So yeah headed back for Chiang Rai later today. People preparing to serve a mission, be prepared to live out of a backpack. Have lots of personal money, and have a relationship with your Father in Heaven 🙂 nothing is more important in conversation for people. Also had an investigator pass his interview!! Baptism Saturday Woo! 🙂

Things have been way great over here but we’ve had a very, very, very tough week. Life’s great we have a lot of fun and the work in Chiang Rai has really picked up! We are going down to Chiang Mai this week for district conference and one of our investigators is going for a baptismal interview! Woo! Pray that goes through. Worry about the rain its been picking up again and making it hard for teaching because they hate the rain so much here haha. I’m loving it though 🙂 love being a missionary woo!
