Week 60 - Decide You Must How to Serve Them Best

Title - In "The Empire Strikes Back", Luke has a vision that Han Solo and Princess Leia are in trouble on Cloud City.  His first reaction is to go to their aid, but Yoda doesn't think it's a good idea.  So Yoda says, "decide you must how to serve them best".

Hello my adoring fans!

I am really tired today because I had to wake up at 5:30 this morning to go down to downtown Seoul to get my foreigner card renewed.  Since then I've been struggling a little bit to say sentences in the proper order so if I type anything that doesn't make any sense I'm sorry.

Me and my Sisters at the Global Center this morning.


This week was pretty interesting, we're starting to find some good potential investigators which is really awesome.  Then there was my first district meeting, some singing, followed by the ward mini MTC night and then the Easter Music Night.  Super fun!

On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday night, we went out with the sisters and visited a bunch of members to invite them to the Easter Music Night.  Sister Allsbrook in our district made some "Mexican wedding cookies" and we brought those and did some "Easter caroling".  It was pretty fun for us, and it really surprised the members which was funny.  We pretty much rang the door bell and then when they opened the door we started singing "He is Risen".  After we sang a verse or two we would give them the cookies and the invitation to the music night.

On Wednesday I had my first district meeting.  I think that it went pretty well.  I decided to talk about how we can use the Easter season to share about the Book of Mormon and the message of the Restoration of the Gospel.  Sharing the Book of Mormon on the street is something that I really think that we can do better on as a district so this provided the perfect opportunity to work on that.  In the middle of the meeting, I felt prompted to share an analogy of a prism.  The Restoration is the white light and when it shines through the prism, which is the Book of Mormon, it creates a whole spectrum of colors that represent the various topics and questions of the soul that are answered through the Book of Mormon.  The Book of Mormon is the key to relating all of what we teach as missionaries back to our special message:  the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

On Friday night, our zone and the other zone in our stake got together and we went and did an activity to promote the Easter Music Night.  We went out to a street corner and had some missionaries passing out invitations and giving out cookies (which we had to make 50 of) and the rest were singing hymns about Christ.  It was really cool and it really helped to spread the message of Easter and give people more of an idea of what we're doing as missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Elder Shepherd and the struggily stove

On Saturday we met with one of our potential investigators named 김다운 (Da Oon Kim) and got to know him a bit more and then we talked with him about our purpose as missionaries, his purpose as an investigator, and what we hope to accomplish together:  baptism and confirmation.  After that we shared some personal experiences from the Book of Mormon and committed him to read Moroni 10 and pray about it.  He's really cool so I'm hoping that we can continue to meet with him and ultimately help him to prepare to be baptized.

After we met with him we had our mini ward MTC.  There were many setbacks and along with that, there wasn't much of a turnout which was kind of disappointing, but I think that we did the best with what we had and we were able to overcome the hurdles to make it successful for the people that came.  We spoke English, talked about American manners, briefly discussed the missionary purpose, and did some roleplays (of sharing the Gospel with others).  Plus, Elder Shepherd made french toast sticks using the struggily stove at the church.

On Sunday we had the Easter Music Night which was so awesome!  There were a lot of arrangements that they sang that were made by missionaries in our mission!  It was so crazy!  There is so much talent in this mission!
Anyways, this week was really great.  I think that things are going to start slowing down a little bit now that the Music Night's over for us, so we'll have a lot more time to proselyte and share with everyone the good news that Jesus Christ's complete Gospel has been restored to the earth once again!

Love and Miss Y'all!

Called to Serve!
