Another great week. Cant believe how fast the time is flying by. The work here is coming by the truck load, and im loving it. The spirit speaks to us in so many ways. I cant tell you all how crucial it is to know all the many ways the spirit speaks to us. Sadly one of the ways the spirit speaks to me is through tears hahaha. Every single testimony i am crying. I think the other elders assume i have pink eye because my eyes are always red haha.
Last thursday i was thrown to my knees. I got called in by our branch president and he rocked my world. He told me all my goals, my personality, my habits, my strengths, my weaknesses, what i wanted to become and who i was. I had never said a word to him before our talk and it was amazing how he knew so much about me through Gods power. His first words to me were "I bet you want to be the greatest missionary to have ever lived." it sounds crazy but thats what i tell myself every morning. He knew my weaknesses and told me exactly how to work on them and to get better at obtaining the christ like attributes that i wanted.
The temple walk was amazing. I feel so much peace just being on the temple grounds. We also found a cat and named it Felix. haha it was the most exciting thing in a long time.
Today my comps and i went and did a session at the temple. It was so amazing. After we got done, walking out of the temple i noticed a familiar face!! Linda Stucki!! It was such a miracle to see her and chat for a few minutes. The spirit was so strong. She told us how thankful she was for missionaries and instantly i was so so motivated to get back to work so i ca be prepared when my opportunity comes to change someones life.
Love you all and always remember to keep the lord first.

Cant believe its been two weeks! The time here is flying by and i am loving it! Every day i am amazed by the help i am receiving here! Going through this without the Lords help would be impossible. The hope and strength i feel from him every day blows my mind.
The work load feels to be getting bigger and bigger as we are now teaching 8 lessons a week and have to find time to study the gospel and memorize 30 new words a day. Last week we got assigned to memorize our purpose in Korean and within a day we all had it down. The gift of tongues is so so real! Elders always ask us how we (korean elders) can be constantly studying all day long and still have energy. I always reply with "God is Good" haha its simple but its the only explanation i have to be able to study as much as we do. A minute doesnt go by that im am not looking at a flash card or memorizing a knew line for a lesson.
The companions and district is growing on me. I always have to catch myself before commenting or saying stuff but its getting better. We are so close and its only been 2 weeks! haah i swear they have seen me cry like 50 times. haha the spirit is so strong here its impossible to hold back tears when i am feeling the spirit.
The other day we watch Ephrams Rescue. It seemed like the funniest/spiritual movie on the planet. haha we got to the part were the kid kisses this girl and we almost died! haha it was so funny. we all started clapping and whistling haha. its funny how some of the littlest things can make a missionary laugh.
sorry if my grammar is bad im am rushed so bad on P day.
love, Elder Hunsaker
What is up!!
I am having the time of my life here in the Provo MTC. Everyday goes by so fast and i cant believe its already been a week here!! In the moment the day is sorta, kinda slow but that that bad. Korea is out of this world. One of my companions took 4 years of chinese and says that Korean is harder. But I love love love the challenge it brings. We are teaching an investigator in broken Korean right now and i already feel like i have mastered sign language trying to get her to understand what we are saying. In a week tho our lessons are a millions times better then our first one.
This mission and MTC experience is not what i expected at all. Its a blessing above all. I miss home and all my friends so much but the focus i have through Christ is amazing. I know with all my heart i wouldnt have half the strength to sit in a class 10 hours a day and learn (especially learn Korean) and out side of the class time we are going to meetings or i am studying more Korean every second i get. I am not kidding when i say that every second of my everyday is filled with something that is bringing me closer Christ and the Opportunity to teach the Korean People.
My companions are perfect for me. I cant relate to either of them in any way on the planet but i know God put them with me for a reason. We are in a trio because Elder Deher had a back ache and waited six weeeks to "heal" up haha. He complains about being injured a lot and its taking all of me to be patient and not tell him to suck it up, but i love him. Elder Pulsipher is so quiet and nice to everyone. He is a lot like my brother blake in many ways and so its a blessing having him in the trio. Our District is so close already! We are all so tight and do everything together. Again i cant relate to any of them but im working to find ways to. Elder Manning from Georgia is just like an unathletic Jackson Wilson so he keeps us laughing all day long. We kinda work out together but i finally got Elder Cleto in my district to work out with me. haha he is getting better but looks terrified after the workout.haha hes such a stud.
Spiritually i am full every day! In the last two devotionals we have had both speakers from the quorum of the 12!! Quentin L. Cook and M Russell Ballard! I have felt the spirit in ways i have never felt and seen things i have never seen. My testamony is strengthened every day x1000. Somthing brought up in almost every meeting is to become converted unto Christ. If anyone has tips on that subject let me know!
I forgot the Address but if u just send something to the MTC and put Mailbox 85 i should get it. I have loved getting stuff so feel free to keep it coming. PLEASE haha.
Also let me know whats up in your lives. I would Love to hear from all of you.
LOVE, Elder Hunsaker
