This week went by so quick....
Last Pday after email we did the most amazing hike on earth and then had a family night with a family in the ward. But this week we found two new people that are both awesome. We had some great laughs with both of them and they seem really excited about the gospel and Book of Mormon. This week we had transfer calls and I will be moving 5 miles up the road ahaha. I am excited and a little nervous for new responsibilities but it should be fun. At church yesterday. It was hard to say goodbye to everyone. Its almost harder to leave an area then leave home when you first come on a mission but it really makes me regret all the people i didnt get close with and the things i wish i had done more to help the ward. "you dont know what you got until its gone." Dont take anything for granite and make the best out of every situation. I really got lucky to be here in Korea. Love you all! have the best week.
ps my new comp is elder boden from AF. We had math class together lol
This week was great. I was able to do some traveling and go on exchanges with two other elders. They are both really good friends with me so we had some fun. With one of them we found a man and he wanted to talk so we sat down and he just layed all his trials on the table and didnt know how to be happy. He said he really was depressed and didnt feel gods help. It was a big wake up call that there are so many other people that have it worse than i do. But after talking with him for a while we shared Mosiah 24:14 with him and told him that God lifts our burdens, but not against our will, we have to try and we have to put all our effort to receive his help. We also told him to just stay busy and fill your time with meaningful things. He was so grateful and hugged us and even bought us lunch. Funny story..... We met this guy and he wanted to learn about our church so we took him to the church and as soon as we sat down he just went off on how he saw Jesus Christ and received the spirit directly from him and how we need to directly see jesus and he was yelling and it was so funny i couldn't help but smile haha. So he just keeps going and we keep trying to speak but he wont let us and then i just raise my hand straight in the air and he like bows at me and tells me to pls speak in super high form and so then I quickly told him how we can help him and why we are here and then he was quite and just left hahah I get about two of those stories a week but that one was just too funny.
We also had a ward party and i was the biggest loser in our game so i had to sing for everyone so embarrassing....the end.
Fun Fact Korea has all these random work out stuff everywhere and all the old people just chill around them and talk and its fun. The old people like to workout here and then tell you all about it after haha.
Love you all,
This week was good. Its going a lot better and we have found a lot of really cool people this week. And have seen many miracles. Things are just falling into place. Last week at an activity a sister was stressed and asked me how i get people to talk to me ever time we do activities with people on the street. All I said was " I ask God every prayer to help me find people." and honestly i didnt really notice the people the Lord was providing until after she had said that but it really made me think about how many little miracles i am missing and take for granite. If i am honest this transfer has been maybe the hardest but after last week i started a gratitude book and its been the best. Its really helped me see the positive in everything and helps me to notice the Lords hand in missionary work. Also had our interviews last week with president. He is the greatest and helped me so much. The lord really works through him. We had a good laugh about how i thought wrestling was the hardest thing before my mission and how i thought that i had done some hard things haha but missionary work is something else. How grateful i am to have this time to be changed and molded into what the lord wants me to be. Love you all,
