1 And now, behold, my beloved brethren/sisteren. This is the next email from Elder Osborn, who has been called to the ministry staying in Srinakarin but with some more strange companion switches.
2 For behold, I will show unto you what happened at transfers last Thursday, and how Elder Osborn's ministry continued in the land of medium-tall sized buildings. And how it was successful. For I say unto you that two more souls were brought to the knowledge of their savior and were baptized for the remission of sins.
3 But there were trials in the land - it seems that Elder Attasit, due to a wound from a previous battle in the North lands, he was released from the ministry and went home to rest from his labors and support the ministry in the land of Asoke.
4 Due to this confusion Elder Osborn continued his work with Elder Sayavong and Elder Winsor in the land of Srinakarin - which is about a 30 minutes taxi journey through the wilderness of taller buildings to the land of Asoke in the West.
5 But in other words, Elder Osborn met success with his new companions, or I should say they were not new, for he had worked with them before, he just returned to working with them.
6 But I will show unto you, that the Lord of Abraham, and of Jacob, continues to do marvelous works among the children of men. For behold, on Saturday morning Elder Osborn awoke and left his tent (or rather the bottom bunk) and discovered a device of curious workmanship, which had a message from the assistants.
7 This curious director was in the hand of Elder Winsor, who interpreted the voice which came out of the device, saying: Behold, ye Elders in the land of Srinakarin, ye have been called to preach the gospel two by two and thus ye are expected to travel to the land of Asoke by 9 o'clock to pick up another Elder who has come down from the land of Chiang Mai in the North to serve with ye in the land of medium-tall buildings in the South, which is the land of Srinakarin, which is near the land of Asoke. 
8 For behold, the Lord loves his people in the land of Srinakarin, and has called Elder Sukhan by revelation, through his servant President Senior, to serve with ye in that land.
9 And it came to pass that Elder Osborn suffered much affliction of thought, saying to himself: why must I have so many companions?
10 And the voice of the Spirit came unto him saying, Peace be unto thee, for it is wisdom in me that ye shall have many companions in the land of Srinakarin.
11 And it came to pass that Elder Osborn was comforted.
12 And it came to pass that Elder Osborn and his companions were quick in obedience to travel to the land of Asoke to receive his new companion.
13 And it came to pass that when they arrived in the land of Asoke they came unto the house of the assistants, when Elder Osborn met his new companion, he embraced him saying: What's up bro!?
14 And it came to pass that when they had returned to the land of Srinakarin they found that their investigators had all but been lost. For seven people had dates to be baptized the next day, but many had lost their way, so that two souls were baptized unto salvation.
15 And it came to pass that there was much joy and rejoicing in the church in Srinakarin for the souls that had returned unto their God.
16 Behold, I have shown unto thee that the Lord God loves his children in every area in the land of Thailand, Burma, and Laos.
17 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that all that believe in Him, shall have eternal life. I say unto you that He lives and has risen from the dead in glory to save the children of men. He knows his people, he knows their trials, their sorrows, and their difficulties. And when men shall come unto Him, they shall find peace in their souls. For I know that he lives. And I say unto you again, that whosoever shall repent, be baptized, and become as a little child, shall have eternal life.
18 And now, behold, my beloved brethren, this is the way; and there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God. And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God, without end. Amen.

With love,
Elder Osborn

PS: believe it or not, some of that I actually wrote myself, the rest came from the scriptures. :)
