Family and Friends!
Overall, the MTC has been awesome! I have had a lot of fun, had a lot of spiritual experiences, and have learned so much. I'm not excited to have no one understand what I am saying in Singapore, but I think that's what I will need for my language skills to really take off. We talk to the Mandarin investigators for a long time here, but I think that is because they are used to hearing bad Chinese, haha!
We Skyped again today, which is exciting :) The first time we Skyped, two weeks ago, was a little traumatic. I'm not sure if Elder Harmon has completely recovered. Our first Skype lesson was with a recent convert. He was crying because his family had left him with two of his siblings, and no one knows where his family went. We were not prepared for that. I shared the first couple of verses from D&C 121 and I think that helped him a little. Then I told him to talk to his bishop. I'm so grateful for a knowledge of the scriptures because often times I have no clue what to say, but I usually know a scripture that helps. After all, God can say things a lot better than I can. So, when in doubt, share a scripture. I have come to realize that I am better versed in the New Testament than the Book of Mormon. That's not a bad thing, but I am making a goal to really study the Book of Mormon more.
Love you all! Can't wait to see where I go :)
