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 Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Dear everyone,

How goes the schooling?  Michael is in his sophomore year (read: difficult year) so he's probably really busy.  A.J.'s still in elementary school, so he's probably busy too.

Everyone here is doing fine.  Elder Lichtenburg was made the district leader, and Elders Guy and Anderson were made the zone leaders. 

We're all doing slightly better at Vietnamese, but it's not exactly easy.  We're all always waiting for the day to be over so we can get some sleep.

As of this week, I am going to give one quote from the choir director in each letter.  This week's quote is "It's not about you!  It's about us!  And if any of you disturb that unity, shame be on you!"

By the way, I was wondering if anyone wrote anything from me being set apart as a missionary.  If so, could you send me a copy?

There's a lot more that I want to say, but I can't remember any of it.  So I'll leave it here.

Elder Nguyen
