Hello my adoring fans!
Another week has flown by here in Korea. This week we all worked really hard in our district and last week we made preparations for a ton of projects that we want to try on the street and with the ward so it's really exciting times. In terms of investigators, Elder Saunders and I are still struggling. Luckily, our whole district here in 상계 (Song Gye) is kind of in the same boat, so we're going to really focus on member work and proselyting activities this week so we can start finding and teaching.
On Tuesday all of the zone leaders went to receive training from president for the month of June so Elder Saunders and Elder Brantley went there and Elder Brantley's greenie, Elder Tapan, and I went on a day exchange. Since we're both new to the area and there weren't any appointments scheduled in the area, it was a pretty tough day. All of the plans that we did make fell through and we didn't have a solid enough back-up plan which resulted with us spending the majority of the day proselyting on the street. Elder Tapan did really well. He has so much love and is becoming a great missionary.
On Wednesday we had zone training and it was awesome. I learned a ton about the importance of humbling ourselves before the Lord and overcoming our fears when it comes to doing missionary work. Elder Saunders and Elder Brantley did awesome! I'm especially impressed with Elder Saunders. He only has a few more weeks left and he continues to work hard and stay devoted to the Lord and His work until the end.
On Thursday we met with the lady that we met last week and it was a pretty weird lesson. She talked a lot about how she believes the first verses of John to literally mean that the Bible is God. We talked about the importance of prayer and God's love for her and His children. We again challenged her to read and pray about the Book of Mormon to know that it's true. We'll probably have to drop her. She seems like she's just trying to share her Bible knowledge with us.
Other than that we made some new streetboards on Saturday, had two appointments punk us on Sunday and then went streetboarding.
It was a fun week!
Something that I've been thinking about a lot recently are the blessings that come from worshipping a being greater than ourselves. As we worship Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, we learn to love others and ourselves more. We learn to be humble, patient, and virtuous. I know that there is a god, and He is our Father. I know not only that He is there, but that He listens and speaks, and that He lives.
Love and Miss Y'all!
