hello everybody!!!

i hope you all are doing awesome! like i promised, i am doing another post! i am good for my word :) anywho, this week i got a lot out of personal study time. i read a lot about accountability. as a missionary you are accountable to yourself, the people you teach, and the lord. refer to ALMA 5:14-19.

14 And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye aspiritually been bborn of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty cchange in your hearts?

15 Do ye exercise faith in the redemption of him who acreated you? Do you look forward with an eye of faith, and view this mortal body raised in immortality, and this corruption braised in incorruption, to stand before God to be cjudged according to the deeds which have been done in the mortal body?

16 I say unto you, can you imagine to yourselves that ye hear the voice of the Lord, saying unto you, in that day: Come unto me ye ablessed, for behold, your works have been the works of righteousness upon the face of the earth?

17 Or do ye aimagine to yourselves that ye can lie unto the Lord in that day, and bsay—Lord, our works have been righteous works upon the face of the earth—and that he will save you?

18 Or otherwise, can ye imagine yourselves brought before the tribunal of God with your souls filled with guilt and remorse, having a remembrance of all your guilt, yea, a perfect aremembrance of all your wickedness, yea, a remembrance that ye have set at defiance the commandments of God?

19 I say unto you, can ye look up to God at that day with a pure heart and clean hands? I say unto you, can you look up, having the aimage of God engraven upon your countenances?

i love those versus. take those as you will, i just wanted to share that with you.

this past week, we had some great things happen. we had a baptism happen last sunday, her name is bong lina. she is a nurse and is so smart its not even funny. i'm pretty convinced she knows more about the church than half the members. she started out learning with the elders last november and she finished with sisters. usually, we teach all girls, usually girls understand girls and its a lot less awkward. its always an amazing experience to see people come unto christ and be converted. to see their old lives and see them receive a new life, there is nothing quite like it.

we also committed a family and another girl to be baptized coming up in july. they both committed and the spirit was so strong. after we taught the restoration for the family and the girl, we just committed them to receive baptism and follow the example of the savior after they receive an answer about joseph smith and the book of mormon. there truly is no other feeling like helping people receive eternal blessings through the gospel of jesus christ. missionary work is so GOOD!!!!

and there is one more verse i want to share its ALMA 37:36:

36 Yea, and acry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy bdoings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy cthoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.

put everything on the lord forever! THE LORDS WANTS TO HELP YOU, if you just LET HIM!

i testify to you that i know that the fulness of the gospel of jesus christ is upon the earth once again. i know that if we sincerely pray to our father in heaven, he will always answer you. remembering that he may not always answer you in the way you might want Him to. the LORD is always mindful of you and loves you everyday, despite our inadequices. realizing our inadequices and relying on the LORD will help us become a true disciple of christ. the work of the lord is going forth boldly and independantly.i promise each and every one of you if you lay all your troubles on the lord, He will help you - if you obey Him and trust Him. I LOVE THE LORD AND I WILL SERVE HIM FOREVER!!!!

thank you all for all of your support, keep emailing and writing! I LOVE HEARING FROM ALL OF YOU!

have a great week!!!



lost on weeks!


do not kill me, i do realize that sister wu aka me has been super busy and have become a slacker in my blogging works. but i promise you that the work in cambodia is still progressing and sister wu is still alive and well and is still sweating like there is absolutely no tomorrow!!!

i want to talk about a few things and just more like a teaching blog today, i just want to share some scriptures and i want all of you to just read them and study them if you get a chance! they are just scriptures that i had studied and read during personal study.

d&c 20:34 - even the best fall down sometimes

mosiah 28:39 - forgive others

1 cor 9:19-23 - replace jew with khmer people, i am becoming khmer!

mosiah 26:39 - pray without ceasing, always give thanks

d&c 64:31-32 - lord's time table

mosiah 29:12 - humans are biased, who are we to judge?

mosiah 29:20- humble yourself and trust the lord

anywho, thats for scripture study but i want to talk about this one miracle that i experiened the other week. we were in this inside market, just visiting in inactive member. as im standing there just talking to other people this woman calls me over and says HEY I HAVE A QUESTION. so i go over and im like yes? she goes are you mormon? im like yes i am. she said oh my gosh, ive been looking for the mormon church. she said that her brother in VIRGINIA of all places, is a member of the church. he told her to go find the mormon church in cambodia. she said she has wanted to but didnt know where to look or how to look for it. she told us that her husband had passed away 2 years ago and has 3 kids and 2 nieces living with her in this small room. we told her when church meets and where it is. and she came for 2 sundays in a row. so fast forward, we meet with her at her house. as we begin to teach with lesson 1 on the restoration, she just stops and just is silent after we share about the great apostasy. she told us that she has been looking for a church ever since her husband died but didnt know which church was god's church. she told us that, the day in the market she saw us she just had this feeling she should ask me if i was mormon. she didnt know the name of the church in the khmer language. she told us that she goes maybe they are from america. they have these weird looking helmets and bike and they dont wear those weird helmets here.... they might be from america, they are talking about jesus christ. she told us that she just had this feeling in her that she should ask me and pull me aside. long story short, we are teaching her and her entire family, 3 kids and 2 adorable nieces. the blessings of helping this family form an eternal family is amazing. this work is truly progressing in cambodia and all over the world. the lord has promised us that as we are obedient to his word with absolute exactness, he will bless us with people to teach and to bring unto Him. i know that the gospel of jesus christ is true and that the healing power of the atonement is real, if we exercise our faith in the lord and apply the atonement in our lives, we can be cleansed and stand before got spotless. i know that jospeh smith is a true prophet of god, that the church of jesus christ of latter day saints is the true and only true church on earth. i know that jesus christ is my savior and my redeemer and that he knows me by name as he does everyone else.

i urge everyone of you to sincerely look to the lord in all things and he will guide you aright.
