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 Letter from the MTC

This letter was tucked into a box David sent home from the MTC, and I didn't open the box right away, thinking it was just stuff to store until he got home.  In his email last week, he asked us if we read the letters he sent in the box, so we opened it and were pleasantly surprised to find it.


Dear everyone,

Surprise!  A second box!

Anyway, this is all the stuff which I couldn't fit within the prescribed weight limit.

Anyway, I'm all packed to go to Cambodia.  In fact, I'll probably be there by the time you read this.

How is everyone?  How's school and work for everyone?

How's Michael's Eagle Scout coming along?  Is he almost there or is he still working at getting a plan for his project, or what?  What does he want to do?

Is A.J. enjoying the 11-year old Scouts?  How is he doing with that?  Has he achieved any ranks yet?

How are things at home and at church?  Has anyone got a new calling?

I'm just fine.  I'll be happy to eat real food in the airport, and I'll be happy to reach Cambodia.

Remember to have fun while I'm gone!

Elder David Nguyen
