Great time to be a missionary. This last week was spent very well. Last week on Christmas we had dinner at a members house with a nonmember family. We sang and played games and ended up having a really good talk about the church. The mom and us really got into it at the end and she was asking us lots of questions about the finding peace and how we are strong enough to always believe in God no matter what. It was humbling to see a woman with everything a person dreams about obtaining in life but still being dissatisfied and unsure about the future. We all shared very deep experiences that have really changed our lifes and brought us closer to God. We told her about how just like anything in life we have to work at our faith and practice being spiritual and coming closer to God and when we fall thats when we need him most. She was really grateful and accepted a book of mormon.
This morning was fun. We went to the mtn and hiked to see the new year sunrise. It was super fun and the best part was being with the ward and sharing these memories with them. I love this Gospel and I know its true. Not a doubt in my mind. I have been told hundreds of times about what people think of this church and rejected about a thousand more times but that doesnt change anything. I am firm on my foundation and building on a rock. helaman 5:12
love you all, elder Hunsaker
Merry Christmas from Seoul!
Its been a good time in Korea. I cant believe this is the last Christmas with the Korean people as a missionary but it really ended with a bang. We had the Christmas party on Saturday and it was so fun haha. We put on a play (scrooge) and the men in the ward did a play about Simon and totally killed it haha. I dont think i can look at them the same way ever again haha. We had 2 investigators come and they both really liked it.
Also we had a dinner with a member or investigator every day this last week so that was cool too. Its just been a good time here. I love this season and the way it brings people together. And at the center of it all is Jesus Christ. I hope you all are remembering the real meaning of Christmas and how simple this Gospel is. Dont complicate it :)
love you all
love, Elder Hunsaker
This week was good. Its snowing rn so it should be a white christmas!! super pumped. Dont have a lot of time but this week was good. the guy that smoked has quit and has a baptismal date now. Met a couple from the phillipines and they happened to be members so we helped them find our church and it was just the best. They were so happy. The dont speak korean so i had to translate sacrament for them which was stressful but they loved it and were so grateful to take the sacrament. love you all. Have a good Christmas!!
So this week was pretty good. Had a great interview last week with my mission president and let me tell you he is the best in the world. He is everything i want to be as a father, leader, husband, and person. He has really helped me out a lot. We are still working with one of our investigators to quit smoking so he can get baptized. so if any one has any ideas they would help him quit smoking let me know plz. I have really been focusing on maximizing my time in every single way so i have put this big alarm system together and its been so cool to see how much more i can actually get done. although the other elders want to blow up my phone cause its annoying it has really been fun to see how much more i can get done. And honestly i am so much happier haha. Just knowing that the time is never being wasted is a dang good feeling. so if you want more details on that and how i set the alarms and stuff let me know. Christmas!!!!! is good to be a missionary at this time. Inviting is what its all about and so we have just been pushing this "light the world" campaign like crazy and its been paying off. In Korea the churchs are all rated and the the big rich churchs control it so online we are labeled as a cult and so people just know us as that most of the time but after a good conversation or just passing by us people say all the time how it doesnt seem like we are a cult or false haha. Just having fun over here and enjoying it all. As Elder Bednar says " just be a good boy and a good girl and the spirit will guide you and you wont even know it sometimes until after.
love you all. have the best week.
Another week in the land of Korea. Its a good time to be a missionary. We have a really good set of guys in the house and we all get along pretty good. The other day we got a new box of 40 books and i was like guys i dont want to carry this home and so to finish the night we gave them all out. It was cool to see the faith of the other elders on the coldest night working to complete our goal of giving all the books out. I promise The Lord sees our effort and is willing to see what we are actually willing to do to get some miracles. Faith is Acting. And acting is our testimony to the Lord.
yesterday we had a member present with the old mission president that is in our ward and it was so cool to see him teach. I related it to watching the dream team pass the ball and make plays. He was so calm and only said like 20 words he let the scriptures speak for him and it worked so well. I was almost crying watching this member teach. Super cool stuff.
love you all, God bless.
