WEEK 31: FAITH & PRAYERS
Dearest Family & Friends,
This has been a turning point for Elder Phnom Penny. Your fasting and prayers is much appreciated. His continued health issues sent him back to the hospital/clinic I'm not really sure how he's being treated or with what medicine. It truly is a mission of FAITH! I due know from a quick email from President Moon he is in bed and unable to proselyte, but did attend a zone conference. Really no contact with Penny. Then last night at 20:45 a quick email. "See ya in 17 months, love ya'all ;)"
YES he did put a winky face so your guess is as good as mine that he is doing better. I think he was genuinely concerned he might have to come home. His testimony is stronger than ever. Here is part of an email home last P day.
"When I was feeling more down then I ever could I did the only thing I could. I prayed. I prayed for a long time. And I realized and found something I've been searching for, for the past 19 years. I've been waiting all my life for what happened. I had a very personal and real witness of my Heavenly Father's presence. I've never felt more alone in my life than at the beginning of last week. When I prayed, I wanted to know why I was alone when I was trying my hardest for Him. What followed next will never leave my memory. I felt Him. I felt His presence and love in a way I've been looking for all my life. I heard Him say, "I'm here." That is a moment I'll remember for the rest of my existence really. Before I believed, but now I know. He is there. He lives and He loves me."
Looking forward to tomorrow evening. Thank you for your continued love and support of my sweet missionary and my family.
Love to you all!
