Sister Srilaksana 15 Jun 2009
I want to thank everyone who has donated money to help Sister Srilaksana Suntarahut (Gottsche). Larry R. White has advised me that he has received donations that exceed our original goal of $3000.00 (USD). I know Sri's heart has been touched by the generosity of former Thailand missionaries and their families.

If you would still like to contribute something you can do so by sending your contribution to

Salt Lake City, Utah 84101

She still has needs for quality medical care and medication.

Sister Sri told me yesterday that she has spent her first night in the new bedroom with a new air conditioner. The adjoining bathroom is very nice. If you would like to see a couple of photographs you can send an e-mail request to me.

Again thanks for your support of Sister Srilaksana, who many of us realize was the mother of the Church in Thailand as well as the one foreordained to translate latter-day scriptures into the Thai language.

Elder Mani 05 Jun 2009
I'm trying to get in touch with Mani Saengsuwan. He and his wife are serving in Thailand currently. He was my first companion. If anyone has an address or email address I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Sister Srilaksana 02 Jun 2009
Sister Srilaksana Suntarahut (Gottsche) will turn 85 years old on July 4, 2009. In recent months her arthritis problems have increased to the point that it is difficult for her to walk. Her bedroom was located upstairs at her home. She can no longer go up the stairs to her bedroom. A new bedroom is almost complete on the main floor along with a new bathroom to meet her needs. She is in need of about 100,000 Baht ($3000.00 USD) to pay for the remodeling and the addition of a room air conditioner for her bedroom.

After discussing her situation Larry White (former missionary and mission president in Thailand) and I are requesting that former Thai missionaries who would like to help Sri make a contribution (no amount too small) to meet these current needs. Should additional money be donated we will give that money to Sri to help meet future medical and prescription drug needs. If you would like to participate please send a check or money order to

Larry R. White
c/o Burbidge White LLC
15 West South Temple, Suite 950
Salt Lake City, Utah 84101

For simplicity please make your check to Larry R. White.

Persons located in Thailand should make contributions to Duane Hurst who works at the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok or directly to Sister Sri.

Sri was the principal translator of the Thai Book of Mormon, Doctrine and
Covenants and Pearl of Great Price. She was baptized on July 4, 1968 just weeks
after the first missionaries arrived in Thailand.

The passing of Monkol Tungmala 10 Feb 2009
I was fortunate enough to have known this wonderful man when I was a new member in the earliest days of the reestablishment of the church in Thailand, as a missionary re-learning the language in the MTC, and finally as a return missionary student in his Thai classes at BYU. He was a humble man with a tremendous love for his country, his family, and his God. He held us to the highest of standards and was a great influence and role model to hundreds of missionaries and to the growth of the church in Thailand over the last 40+ years. My sympathy goes out to his family and friends. I count my experiences with Brother Monkol Tungmala as one of the highlights of my life.

The passing of Monkol Tungmala 03 Feb 2009
Mongkol also taught many elders and sisters the Thai Language in the MTC in Provo as well. He also was influential in teaching many Cambodian and Laotian refugees English.

I appreciated his teaching and service.

My condolences to his wife and children.

Church History in Thailand 13 Jan 2009
Did you witness a part of History relating to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Thailand? If so you are invited to write your story and submit it for inclusion at

Perhaps you were among the first missionaries to enter a new city, or witnessed the first baptism in a city or area in Bangkok.

Perhaps you were present when Gordon B. Hinckley spoke in June 2000.

Where you present when the Thailand Bangkok Stake was organized on June 18, 1995?

Perhaps you placed a copy of the Thai Book of Mormon during October 1976 when the book had just been printed.

Did you help construct any of the church owned meeting hourses in Thailand or were present when they were dedicated?

If so please send your story to

Elder Thananchai 03 Jan 2009
Thananchai and I had a good long talk on the phone and we laughed until we cried, remembering so many funny things. Hope to see him when I return to teach.

Tananchai 29 Nov 2008
Sorry for all the confusion. There was some wrong information out there from somewhere. I have heard from Prapark O. That Tananchai is alive and well. I will talk to him soon.
