After overseeing every detail of the construction of the Bangkok Thailand Temple for nearly four years, the project manager, Anurat Kaeocha, has chosen to be baptized as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was so impressed by the magnificence of the project that it opened his heart to hear the message of the restored gospel and to receive baptism.
Brother Kaeocha said the following on Facebook in his own words:
Bangkok Thailand Temple Project Manager Shares Testimony Online
I have got the confirmation this morning. From now onwards, I will never be alone. I will have the Holy Ghost as my companion and my guidance.
Many people might be curious about my decision. How can the academic person easily change? I have to say that It is not true, it is not easy at all to convert. Especially when you are educated and have a lot of life experiences. You will always look for a logic reason. To believe or trust in anything is triple hard.
But deep inside, everyone is just a human being. Educated or not, it doesn’t make things different. All men are looking for peace, so do I. I do admit that I felt peace and love in the Church. Every Sunday, I went to the Church. I just sit quietly, look around and listen. I believe that the Heavenly Father helps me to clear my busy mind from the crazy working days. I felt that the Church is filled with the Spirit and Love.
Plus, my work is building of the new Bangkok Temple. I have learned and see all elements of the Temple. I gain the essence of the spirit of the Temple day by day. I do know and believe that I am the chosen one to help build this beautiful Bangkok Temple. I know that I am not the best one, the other project manager can do this job as well or might do better than me, but they don’t get an opportunity like me.
The Temple needs a humble and patient person like me. The Lord, he guides me, leads me and helps me to solve all difficult construction problems.
Am I crazy? Am I brainwashed? Not at all. I made the decision with my full consciousness. Nothing to loose to be a good person. Nothing indeed. I open my mind to have Faith in God.
I always believe that all religions are good. The way of the savior Jesus Christ is also a good way. I don’t need to find all reasons to have a belief. I just know it. If it’s not good, it will be gone long ago on its own. Only the best thing can be exist for a century. I consider good on the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. I can apply these in my daily life. I can be a good healthy person, moreover I will be blessed.
