This past week consisted of interviews with president, zone meeting, womens conference, general conference, finding new investigators, and seeing miracles so I'd say it was a spectactular week:)
But really. this week was soo good! I feel like I say that every week... maybe just cuz it's SO true! I love being a missionary. First off, I gotta give a shoutout to general conference which was one of the biggest highlights of the week! I am so grateful we have a living prophet that can lead and guide us today. This year as I went into conference with the questions I had written I decided to take notes a little differently than normal. Rather than writing down what the speaker says that I like, I decided to pay closer attention to what the spirit was telling me through my thoughts and feelings and write the things that come to mind down. What a life changing experience I had! I usually walk away from conference with a few favorite talks and a couple that were hard to get through but this time I could honestly say that I loved every single talk so much. As I listened to what the spirit was teaching me rather than the speaker himself, I received revelation for what I need to do personally. I felt so much gratitude during conference for the guidance and direction I received. I know that everyone can receive the same direction. I invite everyone to watch and rewatch conference! It's really the best and we are so blessed to have a living prophets and apostles called of God who receive revelation for what we need to be doing NOW.
Other highlights of the week include:
-Traveling to bangeojin ( my first area) to watch womens conference with some other sister missionaries. While there, I was able to meet up with a less-active and her kids that I had taught while I served there! How happy I was to be able to see her again<3 how blessed I am to live to close to my first area!!
-Heres a story you don't hear everyday:
met a lady on the street and had a conversation that went a little like this:
me: recently the weather has been so cold right?
lady: yeah! *sees our nametags*
lady: oh are you missionaries? I attend a church but I'm looking for a new one. give me your card. I will call and we can meet sometime!
so yeah. that happened. all I had to do was say hi. I didn't know missionary work could be that easy.
-doing planks with the mission presidents wife while waiting for my companion in interviews
-having a member of our english class ask about our church and the book of mormon so we are now starting to meet her family twice a week and doing the family english program! (30 min english 30 min spiritual message) yay english class.
-making an appointment with Stacy for this coming week! (investiagtor from my first area who lives in my area now)
Funny moments of the week:
proselyting at a bus stop and having almost everyones attention at once (about 10 people)
Not so funny moments of the week:
All the phones in the mission stopped working from friday until now...like we can receive calls and texts but we can't text or call anyone! so it makes making appointments a little more challenging but it should be fixed soon hopefully!
quote of the week is from sister Broyles: "I'm glad I like you enough to let you give me a massage"
hahaha i'm glad she does too.
hahaha i'm glad she does too.
so yeah! It was a great week. this week is transfer calls and I'm not really sure how I feel about that. kind hoping things stay just how they are but i'm not in charge;) it will be interesting to see what happens! I love you all and hope you had a great week! oh and watch this video cuz it will make your day:
library/video/2015-04-1010-he- lives-celebrate-easter- because-jesus-christ-lives? lang=eng
if that doesn't work...it's the "Because He Lives" video on lds.org! it's soo good. I Know Christ lives and that because of Him we can overcome any hardship of this life and find true happiness.
Love Sister Hurley
