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

He's in Cambodia! - Email Dated Thursday, November 1, 2012

Hi everyone,

So, I'm still alive.  The plane made it to Cambodia safely, and everyone made it here safely.  I wasn't able to sleep very much on the flight, but I suppose that's a good thing because I'll be able to sleep properly tonight and get used to the schedule quickly.

I don't know if I told you, but my Vietnamese name is my middle name.

The office elders are the coolest people ever.

Cambodia is good, it's humid but not really that hot, it just feels hot because it's so humid.  I do regret wearing a long sleeved shirt on the plane though, because it makes it somewhat worse.

Today the Vietnamese elders went and visited some members, then went street contacting, as we're not allowed to "tract" per se.  We (the new elders) went with them as a part of our training.  Somehow all of the Vietnamese that I learned in the MTC went away during the flight, but hopefully I can get it back fairly soon.

Well I don't have too much time, so I'll end it here.  I'm OK and I'm ready to get to work.
