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 can hardly believe that it's been two months since I came to the MTC!  It seems like much longer sometimes, more like it's been two years already.  Other times it seems like it's only been a couple weeks.

Things have been fine here.  Everyone's sort of stressed out because everyone that we know has left or is leaving soon.  The Hmong companionship in our district is leaving very soon, and the rest of us are a little sad about that (partly because they're going to be leaving us, partly because they get to leave a week earlier than us.)  We're all waiting to get our travel plans this week, and we're all very excited to be leaving (though I think that we're going to miss the MTC oh, probably after a few hours on the plane.)

Our investigators aren't "real" investigators per se, they are our teachers, but they act like investigators, so we have to teach them, answer their questions, and all that fun stuff.  They're doing well, both of them are progressing, accepting commitments to pray and such.  I don't think that we'll be finished teaching them before we leave the MTC though.

It's been getting colder here, and it's rained a few times, but I don't think it's going to snow before I leave.  It's not nearly cold enough, so unless there's a sudden temperature drop it won't snow, though it will probably rain again.

This week my district (the Vietnamese speakers and the Hmong speakers) played softball against the Cambodian district (because we aren't allowed to play baseball.)  We won pretty easily, 9-4 after five innings.

Everyone's doing well, and we're all looking forward to getting out to the field.
