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

Email Dated Monday, December 3, 2012

Sorry about the long silence.  Last Sunday I had to go to Cambodia in order to get my visas renewed, as they couldn't do it while I was in Vietnam. 

Things are okay here.  It's a little stressful to not be able to speak the language though.

We have one investigator right now, named Anh Chuong.  He is only able to meet once or twice a week, so we try to teach him more in a lesson than we do to investigators who can meet multiple times a week.

It's really quite hot here.  The temperature hasn't dropped below 85 during the time that we're allowed to be outside so far (to the best of my knowledge.)  Luckily our apartment has air conditioning, and so does the church.

We found out that there is a Coca-Cola factory in Vietnam or something.  We wanted to visit it today, but we probably won't have time, as today was a Metro day (a day when we go to the Metro store, which is like a Costco.)

Everyone seemed to get a cold this week (except me, as I had one in the MTC so I'll be fine for a little while longer.)  We weren't able to do as much this week because of that.

The streets are always really busy, which makes it harder to bike.  You often have to fight for space to bike or you won't have any.

Besides that I'm fine.  The work is moving slowly here, but this week we're going to see if we can get it to pick up some.

Have a great week everyone!
