hey everybody!! how are things going? here in korea things are great!! It is hot as ever!! but, it’s so fun!! this week was good we worked hard again. we had a good teaching thing with our old mission president and our new investigator. she wants to be a member but doesn’t know when she wants to get baptized. not really any big exciting news except that i did find out one of my biggest strengths out here in the mission..
this last week we only paid for one meal...the rest we got either paid for or people brought us food hahah elder gillis is so happy. i have a joke that i talk about like it's 'my missionary value' obviously if you can speak korean and invite the spirit you are a good missionary. cooking and cleaning and a sense of humor come into play also. as of right now i can cook, clean, help people feel loved and get us free meals hahahaha it’s a good combo.
we have one investigator now that already wants us to get her a triple combination, but as of right now she doesn’t want to get baptized. she was so cute when she found out that God had a body hahahaha so so so funny.
as far as something i learned this week. we were teaching slava and i kind of wanted to just tell him all these things that he needs to gain a testimony of. but mid lesson, I realized that i was in the wrong. i am not the teacher, the spirit is. i learned, i needed to follow the spirit and say what he wanted me to say. the lesson to him was not the best lesson in the world nor did he make any huge improvements but through asking questions and literally sitting in a room for a minute of silence we knew what to say. i'm slowly finding out that maybe the best thing to testify of to anyone is, that God loves them.
in light of everything that went on before my mission I would like to add my testimony to President Monsons. Job 14:14 If a man die, shall he live again? yes he will. I read the talk Mrs. Patton, the story continues by President Monson this week. What an amazing blessing of the promises God has given us. we will live again and i will be able to see my grandparents again. what a super cool blessing!! i love you guys be someone’s miracle today!!!
