There are 6 different languages in our zone! All Asian! It's the first time any zone has been made with more than 1 language in the zone! Just makin' history in the MTC!! The languages are Khmai, Vietnamese, Thai, Cantonese, Laotion, and Hmong! Danielle you will be happy to know I am really coming in to my Asian side! :) haha It's pretty cool when we say zone prayers because it's in a different and unique language every time! I love all of the Elders that are in my zone! We easily have the best zone in the MTC!! Overall so far the language has been super tough but it's coming and will continue to come with patience! Oh ya, and there are only 3 people here that are in my class learning Khmai and that's me and my companion and a sister missionary! And I could not love it anymore! During class it feels like a one on one class and it's been such a blessing!
Anyways, I better wrap it up but hey everyone- mail is the best thing ever! I may not be able to write you all back fast but keep them coming!!! They keep me going! If you haven't written me a letter yet...you're dead to me!! haha Just kiddin'! Just hop on it ;) I love you all so very much!! Especially you Momma Bear :) Next email just send me a list of questions and I will do my best to answer them!
To end I'll just share a scripture with you guys! It's in D&C 31: 3-7 and it reads, "Lift up your heart and rejoice, for the hour of your mission is come and your tongue shall be loosed, and you shall declare glad tidings of great joy unto this generation. You shall declare the things which have been revealed to my servant, Joseph Smith, Jun. You shall begin to preach from this time forth, yea, to reap in the field which is white already to be burned. Therefore, thrust in your sickle with all your soul, and your sins are forgiven you, and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your back for the laborer is worth of his hire. Wherefore, your family shall live. Behold, verily I say unto you, go from them only for a little time, and declare my word, and I will prepare a place for them. Yea, I will open the hearts of the people, and they will receive you. And I will establish a church by your hand." I bear testimony my time is come! I'm so grateful I get to go bear testament to the people of Cambodia that Joseph Smith heard and saw what he said he did and that through him the fullness of the gospel has been put back onto the earth!! He is my inspiration!! If he can dedicate his ENTIRE LIFE and eventually die for what he believed in, then I can give a short 2 years of my life to show him that his death was not in vain. The people of Cambodia NEED to know that they have a Heavenly Father who loves them and that his son Jesus Christ loves EVERYONE and died for us so that we could live with him again someday! You're all in my prayers! I will talk to you all real soon!
All My Love,
