I (Elder Sowards) lost the side of a tooth because the filling came out then the tooth cracked. The father of a newly baptized member is a dentist. Where else can one go at 7:45 PM at night on a Saturday night and see a dentist, get the tooth repaired and all for about $26! Some things are great here. The dentist did a good work.
Last Saturday the Relief Society held their annual RS birthday event. I had figured to take Joan and then work in the branch president’s office during the event. Surprise! I was told, just as it started, that I was presiding and would be the last speaker. I should have guessed. Also, our four elders had also been invited. In the states the RS would have kicked the bishop and missionaries out-- tactfully.
Thursday, I made a presentation to the Thailand Hospital Association at their annual conference. Of course it was about Lean. They had asked me several months ago. I did introduce the church and even quoted Joseph Smith on teaching correct principles and letting people govern themselves. Afterwards an attendee came up to Joan and explained in English/Thai that she was a member--which was a treat for us. The conference committee did put us up over night at the hotel by the convention center. It was very nice.
