The Week Vietnam Goes to the Temple! 1/8/17


This week was great. Super long. 

Our investigator, Co Hien came to church and even committed to be baptized on March 4, just weeks before I leave. Spooky. When we invited her to be baptized she started freaking out and said "I'm not ready!! I havent memorized anything yet! I don't even know how to sing the hymns yet! You have to wait like two or three more months. I'm not ready yet!! I have to learn more!" And so we explained to her and she turned to our member present help and said "they were trying to rush me" and so we laughed hah...

We had MLC this week and Sister Galland and I learned a lot about POSITIVE ATTITUDES. So we are trying to apply what we learned in everyday missionary work and only say encouraging things. Because why be a negative nancy? 

We also went out to one of our farther areas, Ta Khmao, this week to look for vietnamese people and  had no luck, but we found freeeee mangoes and we are gonna go back out this week to try again because word on the street is there are villages of them out there. 

Some of our members went to the temple this week and brought back an incredibly warm spirit with them and it was so present in church yesterday. They got up and shared about their experiences. Some of them got up there and wept and I cried with them. They got up and spoke of the love that was so abundant in the temple and how we need to practice that same method of loving each other. They talked about being dressed in white and how pure and beautiful and so alike to heaven it was. Some of them were sealed to their families and it made me so grateful for the wonderful blessings of the temple. And I am so grateful for eternal families. 

I love this work! There is no place I would rather be! 

Have a great week, folks!!!1!!!
