Dang this was a good week. Last monday we had a family night at a members house and brought 4 investigators. The members did a great job talking with them and fellow shipping them. We had a lot of success with Less actives this week. We get a group of 10 or so and travel to church together. For the first time, this week we had to schedule and plan a primary for all the kids that came. Its such a different feeling to have kids. They bring such a joy to church.
Yesterday we had Lays baptism. He did so good and was so happy. The light that came off of him after he was all cleaned up after the baptism was such a testimony builder that as we turn to Christ he will make us the best people we can be.
Saturday was speacial. We had a much of amazing appointments come through as well as a family night we put on for a part member family. The goal was to just make them smile and feel God's love. They really had fun. I might have been a little too hyper but they loved it and I think it's what they needed haha. After the games and fun we shared about eternal families and how we can show our love to those around us. I was able to share a story about my mom and her 100 percent commitment to always making me feel so loved no matter how i acted. Love trumps all! No doubt about it. Its the cure to any missunderstanding or strife with someone. Romans 8-38 39
Also got another baptismal date for a man from Liberia. He's has been amazing. He is keeping all the commitments and really wants to work hard to get baptized.
Oh and before I forget, I will move to Uijongbu 의정부 on wednesday. The area is huge. But to keep it even more crazy president told me to keep the last area as well and run both haha. That's three small branches to take care of and they all have many many needed that need to be kept up on at all times. It will be a good challenge.
Love you all. Keep the flame and let the realization of the Gospel stick to your soul. Joshua 1:5

This week was filled with so many miracles. We put a big focus on the members and less actives and made a goal to visit all of them this week. We wrote a bunch of notes to each member and through out the week we visited them and had the opportunity to give many blessing to members and less actives that had been hurt or sick and share our testimonies with them. We also met some people that were members but just hadnt know about a church in this area since they moved from Liberia. Another cool thing happened when we found a less active family with two boys that 3 and years old. The parents invited us in and we all taught the kids how to pray. It was so special. At first they didnt listen but they had this life size spider man and so i pretended to talk for him. As i held the spider man and had spider man direct them and teach them to pray they were super tentative and listened really well haha. Its so special to feel the spirit of the young children in our lives and learn from their pure hearts. This Wednesday our investigator Lay from Cambodia is getting interviewed and will be baptized with Sunday if it all works out well. So pray for him please. Love you all. Have a great week.
I know i say this every week but this week was amazing haha. The Lords has continued to bless us and help us accomplish his work day in and day out. This week President told all the people training to focus on the online part of missionary work and at first i was like "pls no, i just want to be outside hitting the streets." But it turned out really well. As we were praying about who we wanted to message and stuff we began chatting with a man and made an appointment to meet that night. We met him and asked if he had any friends in the area. He said yes and so we called them up and invited them and another member friend. By the end of the night we had 6 people in this little sit down park learning about the Book of Mormon and Jesus Christ. We also skyped a member in through facebook to help us teach and give testimony. It really was a testimony builder that the Lord is hastening his work in many ways and i just need to go into all the new ways to do missionary work with a soft heart expecting to see miricles.
This weekend we were also able to watch conference. I loved every bit of it. I cant explain how reassuring it is after a gerneral conference like that, that god is working through the leaders of our church. I love this Gospel with every inch of my soul and dont see that changing to anything. Helaman 5:12
love you all, Elder Hunsaker
What a week. We were super busy and had so many miracle follow through. My new comp is awesome. Hes Korean and is a stud. Hes is super funny and has a great work ethic. I really wanted to put an extra emphasis on working until the last min. So we really put in the extra work and have been sleeping very nicely haha. Yesterday was Easter here in Korea and honestly when i walked out the door in the morning i was a little bummed not to see anything Easter themed or anyone talking about Easter. But it quickly changed at church with the branch and at the Church on the military base. It was great to hear the testimonies of members literally from all walks of life testifying about the same thing but with there own conviction. After church we had about 6 appointments stacked in a row and everyone was different so by the end of it my emotions were completely gone haha. It really takes a lot out of me emotionally every single lesson but it was cool to see the commonality with all the lessons being the Book of Mormon. We had one man getting pretty mad cause he thought that we liked to Book of Mormon more than the bible haha. We had to tell him over and over in different little ways that we dont just love the Book of Mormon and finally the thing that helped it click was by serving him and his family. I guess the big moral to that story was just not giving up the first time people tell you that you are wrong. Theres always a way to peoples hearts. Love you all so much.
