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

Letter - Postmarked September 19, 2012

Dear everyone,

Week 6 is afoot!  Time is going by quickly (for now).  I'm told that it begins to slow down.  But hopefully that won't be for a long time.  Meaning the week before I return.

Michael is going to early Seminary, right?  Did he switch to a first-period class then?  And is he getting out early too?  Or did he only switch Seminary?

How is school going for everyone?  Has the workload grown to the point where everyone is busy all the time yet?

How is Vietnamese going for everyone?  Is everyone using the Rosetta Stone software or are Mom and Dad the only ones who are learning the language?  I hope you are all learning the language, because I might just be sending home letters in Vietnamese once my knowledge of the language is sound.

You know, I've been wondering.  Could you send me some musical arrangements (church music) so me and my district can maybe sing at one of the devotionals?  Some requests I have are: I Heard Him Come, the arrangement of How Firm a Foundation you did with Brother Stewart, and Lead, Kindly Light.  Thanks!

Elder Nguyen
