That Awkward Moment When...

1. That awkward moment when...It rains like krazy and you can't help but feel like you're living the days of Noah's Flood. Your shoes are full of water, your pants are soaked, and you're sweating to death inside of a hot rain jacket. Fun fun fun :)
2. That awkward moment when...You find out you're training, and you're afraid you're gonna break the poor child's Chinese.
3. That awkward moment when...You run out of milk for your cheap Malaysian cereal and have to forge onward, crunching away and hoping that it's all fake chocolate puffs that you're eating.
4. That awkward moment when...The light in your study room dies the night before, and you're already sitting in half-darkness trying to do Companion Study...and then the stormclouds outside thicken and you're pretty much sitting in the depths of pergatory.
5. That awkward moment when...You name five 'awkward moment when's at the very beginning of your blogpost. Yep, awkward moments. Gotta love 'em :)
So all those awkward moments pretty much sum up the day so far. Hopefully, if all goes well and the weather gets its act together, we'll be able to go to a crocodile farm later today. But I guess we'll see :)
I don't have a whole bunch of time, but I'd like to say this: The Lord lives. He truly does. He's aware of all of our circumstances, even when and especially if we feel inadequate or lost or forgotten. The Lord has numbered the sheep of His fold and He will not leave them desolate! I've felt Heavenly Father's love several times throughout this past week, and it's a constant reminder to me that the Lord lives and that He is anxious for all of His children to hear the good news of the Gospel. Never quit, brothers and sisters; don't doubt, but be believing. As President Monson puts it: "The future is as bright as your faith" :)
Love you all!
Mai Zhanglao :)
