Elder's Nguyen's Favorite Scripture

"And if thou shouldst be cast into the pit, or into the hands of murderers, and the sentence of death passed upon thee; if thou be cast into the deep; if the billowing surge conspire against thee; if fierce winds become thine enemy; if the heavens gather blackness, and all the elements combine to hedge up the way; and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good.

"The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he?

"Therefore, hold on thy way, and the priesthood shall remain with thee; for their bounds are set, they cannot pass. Thy days are known, and thy years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what man can do, for God shall be with you forever and ever."

- D&C 122:7-9

Hi everyone!

I'm doing fine.  Learning Vietnamese is still hard, and we have to teach an investigator in Vietnamese, so we really aren't able to answer any questions that he has.  But everyone's progressing, we can all say some simple doctrine in Vietnamese without looking at our notes.

The food here...well, it's not that good.  Mostly I eat cereal and milk, with the occasional Sunday lunch.

I caught a cold the day after P-Day last week.  I'm suddenly very glad that I brought all that medicine with me.  I was fine after a couple days of taking Ny-Quil.

Sorry to hear that Michael has a fever.  Hope he gets well soon.

Recently I heard about something called DearElder dot com or something like that.  You can send an e-mail to a missionary, and it will be delivered as a letter.  I was hoping you could help me with something.  The record for the greatest number of letters in one day is 10 or something.  I was hoping that you maybe could help me break that record sometime...

Elder Neil is doing fine.  He's half Vietnamese on his mother's side.  He's from North Carolina or something.

Elder Lichtenberg and his companion Elder Knights are both doing well.  Elder Knights is from England, and Elder Lichtenberg is from Michigan.

All four of us are going to Cambodia Vietnamese Speaking.

I was also wondering if you could send a couple things.  First, I would like some cough drops.  I have a bit of a sore throat after that cold, and I seem to have gotten several people sick by accident.  Second, I was wondering if you could send me some peanut brittle...there isn't really good dessert around here except during Sunday lunch.

To A.J., Michael, and Jacob: Good luck with school!
