3 new investigators

hello everyone. well transfers were last week and guess what? i have a new companion! I am senior companion.  his name is elder clawson.  he came to korea on tuesday. which also labels me as a trainer.  shocked!

this week has been interesting i have been able to see how much Heavenly Father plays a huge role in the language. i have worked hard my time here to learn korean to do my best but it just hasn’t clicked.  you have to hear and understand. then speak and boy is it hard. but i have been very blessed this week as to how my 'ears have been opened' and my 'tongue has been loosed'  i can only say things that i have studied but the Lord is helping me understand everything that i need too. 

WE have found possibly 3 new investigators.  last night we visited some members and it was the first time i have visited members where i have actually spoke the majority of the time.  the Lord is truly in this work.

my comp is a workaholic. we have been busy lately and all he wants to do is go and talk to people. obviously the language is difficult but he is brilliant and is picking it up super fast. i'm trying to find the balance between pushing to motivate and still making sure he is having fun and not hating his life.  he is a great missionary and willing to work hard.

yesterday i had a chance to stand up in front of the priests cuz they wanted me to say some good words i guess. i went off about elder christoffersons talk about 'manning up'. i thought it was interesting to see that i am not a man nor close to it but it was a good experience.

this work is crazy and is even better now that the Lord is using me to speak korean now.  my heart is full of joy and i don’t know how i can thank Him anymore for what He has let me do this last week. we are tired.  this work as a senior companion is so different.
i'm blessed to know that He really does love and care about all of us and the Lord does have a timeline. He has a plan.

ok so sorry there hasn’t been a big email lately, im gonna try my best this week.
i passed my final korean test. yay....it took me longer than i had hoped but i feel that the lord didn’t want me to finish it quickly and that i had more important trials to take care of.  i am on a korean study phase now where i am always looking to find new words and add it to my as what elder herman would call it 'my eternal book of knowledge' haha miss him. 
for pday we had a football tournament it was pretty fun. we had a draft and everything. elder coats put together a football sports illustrated i sent it to dad enjoy it.  i had the first pick and my team took second.  it was fun. sprained my ankle but i am good now haha. 
taught a 25-minute lesson yesterday in church alone. that was a blessing to see and feel a little confidence in the gift of the limited korean the Lord has given me.
There is someone in this ward that hasn’t got confirmed yet and he came to church yesterday.  i have been trying the past 6 weeks and he came.  hopefully he can get confirmed last week.  talked to him about commandments and compared a fight dad and i had about doing homework to commandments. i don’t know how i got to relate or even make sense but he understood and it helped him understand. thank you for the Spirit!
also someone that has had the first 2 lessons, that has come to church every week for months, and that watched conference went in for an interview with the bishop and told him he wants to be baptized next month. so that is exciting. our ward has been working on ward member referrals and it is so great to see this man who is a referral have that desire.  i think it will be great for the ward to see that it really can happen!!
that’s it for this week thanks for everything love you guys!
