This week was great. Elder Holland came and spoke to us!! So amazing to see and shake hands with an apostle. If i had a drop of doubt in this church it is gone without a doubt. He was so good at reading the room and saying exactly what we need to here! sorry to say this but he said if you serve or atleast come to Korea then you have a straight shot to the celestial kingdom so start booking the plane tickets haha. Getting to place where he spoke was pretty fun also. a 5 hour train ride throught the mtns of Korea! super pretty.
This week during a lesson we had with a 16 yr old investigator we watched the restoration video with him. After we asked him how he felt and he said its true in the most clear Korean i have ever heard. Super excited for him and the opportunity i have to bring the spirit of the lord to people in hopes that they will except and recieve it. love you all so much
Great week lots of great people and miracles. We are teaching this 16 year old boy and he is so prepared haha we literally talught him for two hours and he wanted to know more and more. He also said that wierd things and happening and its so crazy how satan can have such a big tug on the people trying to find the gospel. but hes still progressing and staying strong. Super blessed out here and loving it. its hard at times but thats when we change. love you all so much
This week was great. Had a lot of great people run into us haha i swear its not us because the whole week we wanted to put a family on out list of investigators and so we worked and worked so hard and nothing. Then as we were carrying a random table a lady stopped us and was super happy and asked us all these questions and by the end we got her number and schedualed to meet again. Things like that never seem to end. I guess the moral of success as a missionary is just work super hard so when the lord does decide who he gives the miricles to its you haha.
The weather has been so cold its almost funny to laugh about. We did an activity and the whole group of us looked like we all were dead haha. Korean is hard enough but add a frozen face and its so hard to speak haha. Last week we went to the coast with the branch president and got the lesson of our lives with ping pong haha i thought i was okay at ping pong but he killed me haha but thankfully he told us if we keep practicing that within 3 years we can learn how to start being as good as him.
The title i put is direction, the reason i put that is because with the gospel we have direction. i meet to many people that are confused but as they learn and as we teach them there direction is different the things they thought mattered didnt and they gain a new meaning to life. they just look so much more happier every time we run into them. love youall so much.
Loving it out here. Such a good place to serve. Its weird to go from tons of people and huge buildings to this town but the people are awesome haha they really freak out when we pretend to not know Korean and then go into our Korean haha. The branch is great. super small with 15-20 members but i like it. I already feel super close with most of them. The missionarys have to bless, pass, and prepare the sacrament as well as give prayers and talk each week haha huge change but i love it. The my korean is improving 2x and fast i feel like. Also met a wrestler. finally. haha he is my age and weight and said he took 2nd in the nation so i will have to get with him on one of these pdays. The new companion is great he is super funny. i feel like we are twins kinda haha Hes been out for 1 1/2 years and is pretty good at Korean.
The other day we didnt plan dinner and so i was so hungry and worried that we wouldnt eat but as we were knocking on doors a old lady forced us to come in and fed us haha she was the cutest person alive. She would grab our cold hands and try to warm them up. It was a huge test of faith and a confermation that is we just trust god and do his work he will find ways to keep us full and happy.
love you all so much. keep up the great work and remember God First.
