Vietnamese Word of the Week: thay đổi (tie doi?) which means, "change" or "to change" as in "The gospel changes lives and people." :)Scripture of the week: Mark
- How can I better lose my life for the Savior's sake and for the gospel's?

Vietnamese Word of the Week: Vị Tien Tri (Vee- Ten Tree) as in "Prophet" like in "I bear witness that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God." He truly is. :)Scripture of the week: 2 Nephi 27:23 - God is the same today, yesterday, and forever; He works with us according to our fatih. :)
This week, we tried some new food. There's a Greek place near the branch, and it was so delicious! I can't quite remember the name of it, unfortunately, but it was really good!

Vietnamese Word of the Week: Lễ Báp Têm (Lay? Bap! Tem) As in, the ordinance of baptism. Like what Crystal did last Saturday! :)This week has been full of exhaustion and miracles. One of our investigators (our last progressing) has also decided to get baptized. :) We are so blessed that the Lord has prepared us and prepared these people to come into His fold. :) I've been really tired all week and I think Elder Howell and I are falling ill, but being at Crystal's baptism really picked us up and helped us get excited to do missionary work again. :)
The next day, I got to confirm her a member of the Church... in Vietnamese. It was wonderful, but I was so nervous again. :) It's still a surprise to me how much English we speak, but it's wonderful to hear the gospel declared in many tounges. :)
I got to go on exchanges for the first time with Elder Roberts! We're both new missionaries, but we survived a whole day of real missionary work without our trainers! He's such a great missionary, and I look forward to working with him more.
