Hello my adoring fans!
This week was another great one here in 상계 (Sang gye). Elder Saunders and I are having a really awesome time serving together and we're slowly building a teaching pool of investigators and less-actives.
On Monday it was P-day and it was one of the elders in our zone's birthday so we headed up north to 동두천 (Dongduchun) where the missionaries there serve in a foreign branch near an American military base. They got on to the base and hooked us all up with some Taco Bell and we proceeded to play BANG and Apples to Apples. Fun times.
On Monday night we had a lesson with this guy who was an old investigator that contacted Elder Saunders a few months ago and wanted help learning English. The problem is that he doesn't want to be seen by anyone when he's meeting with us so he meets us at a cafe and wears all black. It looks like we've got a struggily scenario on our hands here.
On Tuesday Elder Saunders and I went tracting in an apartment complex which was pretty interesting. I've never really been a fan of tracting but the other Elders team in our area has had some luck with finding people to teach that way so we decided to give it a shot and were able to meet some cool people. Nobody let us in but there was a really nice guy who has some English interest that we'll probably follow up with this week.
On Wednesday we had our district meeting which went really well. One of the themes for this month is overcoming fear through preparing and planning well. I decided to talk about humility and compared two examples of humility found in Mosiah 21 and 24. After the district meeting I was able to go on exchanges with the other zone leader, Elder Brantley and it was awesome! We've been on exchanges before, but it was still really fun to talk to him and get know him more. He's a really great elder and is doing a really great job training right now. He's going home next transfer, but he continues to endure.
Sister Morillo needs to repent. :)
On exchanges with Elder Brantley
On Thursday Elder Brantley and I went and did a service project where we washed dishes at this kitchen that serves food to old and handicapped people. It was really fun and I especially enjoyed it because I don't get that many opportunities to do service projects. I definitely want to do more service projects after the mish.
On Saturday we got a new investigator! Also, we got together as a zone and did a music proselyting activity. It was really awesome! We have two missionaries in our mission who are companions and their sole purpose is to do music activities whether it be proselyting or performing at ward or stake activities. Anyways, one of them, Elder Pelina, plays the piano really well and his companion, Elder Bradshaw plays the violin really well. So they played music while we talked to the people that were watching. It went really well and we were able to talk to a lot of really cool people. It's really interesting how quickly and how powerfully music can invite the Spirit.
I am so grateful to be serving a mission in the Korea Seoul Mission. It's harder to find and pretty do every thing else, but through that I have become converted myself to this wonderful Gospel. I've never known what life is like without a belief in God or a belief in a brighter future through Jesus Christ, and I do not want to know. Jesus Christ lives and this is His true Church. He guides this work.
"Humble yourselves even in the depths of humility"
Love and Miss Y'all!
Called to Serve!
