Sister Go's baptism was by far the best part of the entire week. But we also had the opportunity to have a mission tour this week where Elder Yamashita from the Quorum of the 70 came and spoke to us. It was such a great meeting and it was definitely inspired. I felt the spirit strong and felt guided to know what I need to do to be a better missionary. I was also able to see some past companions like Sister Thornley and Sister Parkjinyoung which was a lot of fun! Other than mission tour we also were able to meet a few members this week and share some messages with them. Teaching lessons/sharing messages has been one of the hardest but best parts of my entire mission. I really love teaching with Sister Kim. I love the spirit that I feel as I listen to her teach and I love feeling the spirit guiding my own words. Something we constantly have to work to be worthy of.
One thing that I have really loved about my new area is how many Book of Mormons we have been able to pass out. We have a sticker board that asks "Have you ever wondered about these questions?" and the questions include "Is God real?" "Does God know me?" "How can I have a close happy family?' and "how can a belief in Jesus Christ help me?" We bring the board down town and we ask ever person that passes if they will stick a sticker on the board. We ask them what question they have wondered most about. Then we explain who we are and that we have found answers to these questions through the Book of Mormon and we share a short passage from the Book of Mormon that answers their specific question. We get all sorts of responses but for the most part people are happy to receive a free book that answers questions of the soul. It has been fun being able to testify about the Book of Mormon to so many different people in a little time.
Funny story of the week:
I played the piano for the opening hymn in english class.. okay that's not the funny story of the week. but that was pretty funny too. It was only the right hand but I only made a couple mistakes okay? It's nice to know that although I quit piano at a young age (so I could play sports:)) that I didn't completely forget how to play. haha... anyway okay the other funny story of the week:
As Sister Kim and I were sticker boarding with the Elders I saw a young man who was wearing a sweatshirt that I really like. It spelled out different countries in the world but half was in english and the other half was in Korean. So I asked him where He bought it and before he could answer his friends immediately started trying to take it off him and yelling "give it to her!!" ahhhh it was so funny. thankfully his friends didn't succeed and He didn't have to give me his sweatshirt....but it was pretty funny:)
Well It was an absolutely amazing week and I could be happier! I love Korea and I love this work.
and I love all you!
