So we got the transfer call and it really blew us away. We thought for sure that we would both just stay up here together but my comp will be heading to the big city in Seoul and I will be getting another new missionary from either Korea or the USA. It will be exciting. I really enjoy training. It really puts a new pressure to be the best example and teach through actions.
Aside from that we have another investigator getting baptized on April 29th. He is Cambodian and has changed 180 since we met him. He brings his friends to church and teachs them about the Gospel. It cool to see the true change in people and how that change motivates them to share this great message to our loved ones. I have one question for you all. Who are you waiting on? Who are you wishing would except the Gospel but hasnt yet? Well I promise that those thoughts are not a coincidence. You have the power and the tools to make yourself as sharp as you can so God can use you to help that person. And as you help them dont think in short terms or you will be disappointed. Think past this life, Think BIG. Just cause they dont receive it then and there doesn't mean they wont ever again. It might take years for that spark to turn into a fire that will change there life. Love you all. I pray for you all.
This week was great. This area is the best! I cant get over how cool it is. The other day we got a call from a member that lives in the middle of know where in the mtns, She asked us to come help her farm and get the soil ready so she can plant her garden in time for spring. After a 2 hour bus ride through the most beautiful mtns we got to her house and helped her out. It was the best. After she fed us until we exploded and them fed us some more haha. A long the way we met 2 people and they both had interest in the church. Idk but some people think in order to find people you need to be in the city on a street corner forever but if you got the faith, the lord will put the people where you need them to be. "just keep being a good boy and the spirit will do the rest." -elder Bednar. I am convinced that by the Powers of Heaven we can get all that we want and need. Just that pure positive belief can get you so far. Numbers wise this area in the past has been on a downward trend but recently its been nuts. We have found so many new people and have been able to see so many miracles. With every law comes a blessing and as we choose to act in faith the Lord is just gonna provide. "trust the process" as some athletes would say. Trust the Lord. Our most recent baptismal date came from an amazing lesson with a man from Nigeria. His friend is a recent convert and has been pushing him to come to church. Well he came and we were able to meet with him after and teach him about the Book of Mormon and why its something he needs to really ponder and pray about. It went great and by the end of it we were able to assist his friend in performing a blessing on the man. Such a good time to be here!!
love you all.
You are the Light
This week was so good. We had a big mission conference last Thursday with the Area President Elder Gay. He is the man. A Real man. My Grandpa always told me that a REAL man is someone who takes care of people. Elder Gay is a great guy and throughout his life has really taken care of people. He gave us good advice on choosing our career and how we will measure our lives. But the thing that hit me most during the conference was when one of the elders asked him how he can help some of his family members that arnt members and how he can help them and his answer was "work as hard as you can to live the gospel and be a good missionary and the Lord will take care of them." The Elder was really emotional and it really just hit home to me that there is always a bigger cause then ourselves and once we find that bigger cause the task is more meaningful and the motivation to get the job done doubles, triples, quadruples. When i teach about goals the first thing i talk about, is the reason why the most important thing when making a goal is asking yourself why you want to do this?. but on the back side of what he said i want to challenge each of you that have some one in your life that you know that needs the Gospel and make a goal to follow the Gospel and do missionary work to the best of your ability. I testify that God will see that and maybe not even in this life but the next those people will find the Gospel and will be blessed because of your efforts. Corinthians 5:14
love you all
