I had a wonderful Sabbath day this week. It was my first time in the Chaktomok Ward. My companion and I are white washing, which means that neither me nor my companion have ever been in the area and don't know anyone. Luckily there is another set of Elders in the area, only one of them was in the area last Transfer so he showed us all around a bit after church. The first councilor in the Bishopric asked me to say the opening prayer and help the Elders Quorum president bless the Sacrament. They don't have very many people in the ward who come... But those who do come are super faithful! From the talks at church which the two other Elders gave I was reminded how Jesus requires us to love others like we love ourselves. I pondered on how I love myself and thought that if I would do it for myself I should do it for someone else too.
Everywe call the Elders in Vietnam and take results from the last week. We also had an Assistant planning meeting with President Moon. That was fun. We got some new tasks to accomplish, including an English Class Leader training meeting followed by a Leadership training meeting that involves all the Zone Leaders and District Leaders and Sister training Leaders in the city. There were a lot of missionaries here at the mission home . The exchanges involved were very complicated and it gave Elder Lao and I a headache just trying to figure them out.
Today, Saturday, is my P-Day. I'm just chillin'.
I love you all so much! Have a wonderful week. Pray always and faint not. Search the scriptures, in them you will find the words of eternal life. Meet together oft to partake of the sacrament and renew your covenants with God. Make & keep covenants. Trust in the Lord. Lean not to thine own understanding. Be thou humble and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand and give thee answers to thy prayers. As a representative of Jesus Christ and having been called by Him through a living prophet to preach His word, I testify that these words are true. I have proved them many times in my life. I do not know these things of myself, but they have been made known unto me by the power of the Holy Ghost through much diligence in fasting and prayer. You may do likewise and God will answer you too. I promise. In the name of His son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
