Doctrine and Covenant 75

So today, after a long day of being so excited, and being so immensely thrilled, I began to feel somewhat inadequate. I thought to myself, am I really ready to speak Thai? To go to Thailand? God has promised us so often that He will be with us. Today I read one of my new favorite scriptures where I applied it to myself.

In Doctrine and Covenants 75:13, Joseph Smith addresses some missionaries who are to go forth to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I replaced my name with theirs.

And again, verily thus saith Lord, let my servant Jacob take his journey into the eastern countries (Thailand) and proclaim the things which I have commanded him; and inasmuch at he is faithful, lo, I will be with him even unto the end.

I know that God will attend me as I strive to do this. I feel deeply humbled and very touched by the Comforter or the Holy Spirit. I am prepared to serve the Lord. I am anxious and excited to go to Thailand. And I pray that God will help me as I strive to do that which I know to be right.
