The MTC Era Finale - Monday, March 23, 2015


     WOW, I am about to go to Cambodia already flying tomorrow afternoon! So on our Final Tuesday Night Devotional for MTC Choir we practiced and performed we sang "Glory to God on High"! Shortest song ever performed I thought. The usual Chorister that leads in most of my time doing MTC Choir practice is named President Eggitt, he's a funny, but serious leader.  We had an opportunity to hear from another Area 70 General Authority named Don R. Clarke in our last Tuesday Night Devotional.  A very outstanding General Authority... literally! As he spoke he explained 10 Truths about The Gospel of Jesus Christ and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he walked slowly around the missionary crowd as he portrayed his important remarks. Funny thing is he kinda reminds me of the famous Syracuse Basketball Coach named Jim Boeheim. Sorry my grammar isn't really perfect but that's what happens when I learned the Khmer language! Hahaha!

    Had to be brief for this last P-day! See what had happened was for last week... I might go all over the place for this last week because it's fun and yet pretty busy. I so continued to learn how to literally teach with the Holy Spirit and the Gift of Tongues for my last time teaching the Demo-investigators like Bong Saen, Bong Gong, & Bong Sombat for the week! I successfully memorized the vowels by image or character, but not very perfect at the pronouncing. I heard strong testimonies from the Lookkruus about the true importance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the importance of inviting members, inactive(s), and investigators to keep coming to church, not only to Church, but to CHRIST. Plus, how important it is to explain the blessings to everyone we teach after we committed every individual to do something for Heavenly Father. 

     Last Thursday, basically the last day when missionaries do service in 15M Residence Hall, so that was really fun! This was the day when I finally receive my NEW official name-tag when I go to the mission field! It looks super awesome! I hoped to show you all what it looks like in next P-day! 

     On Last Friday, we attend a huge occasion called In-Field Orientation! Basically, it's all about what's the Doctrine of Christ, whats the point Weekly Planning/ Goals, how to really find People to preach the Gospel to, &  how can we missionaries work with Members. We had an opportunity to meet a really decent returned missionary from the show named "The District" named Elder Christensen. We learn a lot from one individual named Brother Rob Stephenson! We done tons of activities in that day! 

     On Last Saturday, I saw what Lookkruus Sorenson's actual former investigator "Bong Gong" looks like! He's currently and inactive member, but I hope and pray that I'll meet him and be able to invite him back to Church! 
      Yesterday or Last Sunday! We had a combined Priesthood and Relief Society meeting! Then we had a fantastic Sacrament Meeting, my Mission District, the Hmong Speaking Missionaries, Vietnamese Missionaries had performed a Special Musical number named "I know my redeemer lives!" The Holy Spirit was so strong and present with me as I do my best to cherish the Last Sabbath day to spend with the Mission district in the Provo MTC. On Sunday 

"For know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shallstand at the latter day upon the earth:"- Job 19:25 

"And behold, all that he requires of you is to keep his commandments; and he has promised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you." - Mosiah 2:22

"For I say unto you that whatsoever is good cometh from God, and whatsoever is evil cometh from the devil." - Alma 5:40

       Well, I am traveling to Cambodia tomorrow afternoon on 1:30AM, and I will talk to my FAMILY! I can''t until I surprise my mommy about how much I learned of the Khmer language so far! Plus, explaining how's it like to be in the MTC as a missionary! I miss my family so much! Shout out for Elder Jared Hansen in the Paraguay Asuncion Mission! Great blessings to him as he keeps serving others and the Lord! He's officially finished with over 1/4th of his mission over there! Keep it up Brother! One more thing, as me and the district travels to Cambodia, over there we'll meet completely new companions.... It's going to suck to me completely new companions.... It's going to suck to leave my awesome and phenomenal companion Elder Hall! We have such a strong brotherhood companionship bond with each other it's not even funny. God bless you Elder Hall it's in my prayers that you'll do great with your trainer. Plus, same idea to all other missionaries in my district I love you all so much! Hope we cherish the time we have while we're in the Planes for about 2 days as we travel to Cambodia!  We we'll love our trainers in the field! 

   "For behold the field is white already to harvest"- D&C 4:4
   លាសិនហើយ ល្អ(Leasenhaey I Mian nay thaa Good bye!) to the USA!
Yesterday, we watched (one of our teachers) Lookkruu Sorenson's experience at the Cambodia Phnom Penh Mission
when he returned from his mission as an Elder. (Sounds very weird when we listen to him in English, however
he had explained so much of his experience it influence us to be prepared and completely ready to preach His 
gospel because there are so many Cambodians that needs to hear specifically from us about The
Gospel of Jesus Christ! He has a tremendously strong testimony after all I was taught from him.

Me and the mission district! On the Left with the Blue/Yellow tie is Elder Somephikay called in the same 
mission as us, however he's called to preach His gospel over there in the Vietnamese language.
