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

Last email from the MTC - Dated Tuesday, October 30, 2012

I'll try to call once before I get on the plane in Salt Lake, but I can't call for very long because there are a lot of other missionaries in the airport, so I'll have maybe two minutes to talk in Salt Lake.  I'll see if I can get in a longer call at LAX.
Oh, if you want to send a DearElder today, send it BEFORE 3:00 PM or I won't get it.
There's three of us flying to Cambodia, plus eight elders and one sister from the Cambodian district.  The other two Vietnamese elders are going to Melbourne Australia and Anaheim California. 
I just barely managed to get everything into my suitcases without going over the 50 pound per suitcase limit.  If I didn't need the Vietnamese books, it would have been a lot easier, as they're heavy and take up a lot of room.  But I suppose I'm going to need those for quite a while (I don't think that I'm going to bring most of them home though.)
I hope the people of New Jersey are O.K. (especially Greg and his family) but I'm glad everyone in the family is O.K. for now.  Hopefully the hurricane won't move toward Maryland.
I hope everyone is doing well.  I'm doing well here, and I'm looking foward to getting to Cambodia.
Remember to have fun while I'm gone!
Elder Nguyen
