We have two families of potential investigators! One in Branch 3 and one in Branch 10. The one in Branch 3 is the neighbor of a former investigator who Chi Truong and I contacted in Branch 10 and is in fact the mother of a lost member in Branch 3. The whole story is kind of crazy. The father of this new family just called us one day and asked for a Book of Mormon, so hopefully we'll be able to start teaching them this week.
And now, a funny story I think I forgot to write from the week Co Phung and Em Vy went to Viet Nam. The day before they left, Co Phung was telling us about how they were leaving, and it was all very sad and serious. I was trying to unobtrusively take a piece of mango from the plate in front of me. This may seen like a stupid thing to do in the midst of a serious conversation, but people often try to avoid awkward moments by telling us to eat, so the best way to avoid such interruptions is to just keeping eating slowly so they see you are eating but you make whatever food is in front of you last for the duration of the conversation. It was time to take another slice of mango before Co Phung noticed I wasn't eating, so I reached down to pick it up. It was ripe and juicy and kind of slippery, so my fingers slid right off and the mango stayed on the plate as if nothing had happened. I tried again. It was really slippery, and I failed again. I tried pinching it. I tried the other end of the fruit. I tried sliding it to the edge. The mango would not come off the plate! Dang hydrogen bonds! And I couldn't just leave off it at that point because my efforts had mangled it a bit. So ultimately it did disrupt the conversation, and Co Phung, Em Vy, Chi Vy, and I all had a good laugh over my inability to pick up the mango. Then Co Phung and Em Vy went to Viet Nam the next day and Chi Vy teased me that they will tell everyone in Ho Chi Minh that Chi Hoa can't lift a slice of mango off a plate.
And, yes, Co Phung and Em Vy did end up going to Ho Chi Minh, and they are staying with members and going to church, so I sent her teaching record to Vietnam and she will get baptized there soon...maybe even next week!
In other news, this is a five-week transfer, so transfer calls were last night! Except the Vietnamese transfers are still a secret. The Khmer missionaries know where they are going on Friday, but the Vietnamese have no idea what is going on.
