Missionary Work Is Fun!

Wow!  This week has been so great!  So, this week we tried calling a list of people that I literally have called 3 times. Well, we decided to do it again and guess what?  2 people said they wanted to meet!  1 is golden, he lived in New York and is just so ready.  Also, another guy wants to do 30/30 but he wants to do it with his whole family! (30/30 is 30 minutes of English class and 30 minutes of a lesson/discussion)  Also a new investigator we met this last week introduced us to his daughter so we are hoping to get in with the entire family! Our weakness right now is getting investigators to church, which we are trying hard but it just seems that they all have so many excuses.  We are doing good at teaching to needs but we need to help them keep their commitments of church.

Things are good!  Missionary work is fun!  We are seeing as many miracles teaching is fun and it just is a good time to be here in Korea.   Grandma has gone MIA, which I just don’t understand this is so weird. We visit her house 2 times a day and just no answer. But, I'm hoping for the best! Ha!  As you can see the work here is great!!! Stay golden!

The Chess Game

We have a baptismal date on the 17 of February.  Gma went MIA last week cuz she had a headache.  I’m training an elder smith from Kaysville he is great.  I beat our investigator in chess this week that claims to be the king of Chicago.  My comp and I are working on praying before everything and it has been good to remember my purpose more throughout the day.  A drunken guy jumped me this week while we were contacting. Thanks for this opportunity.

Gyesan Area

hey everyone this week has been great. i was able to go do grandpas baptism on Saturday

and it was a great time!!  thanks for all the letters and the package i got this week it 

really was so so so great!! thank you!!   our investigators are good. our one investigator as 

of now says he can't become a member but he is doing a great job at sharing his 

testimony with our other investigators.  we also found out one of our investigators 

parents are both dead.  i am very excited to teach the plan of salvation this week.  sorry 

this email isn't very long but grandma gets baptized this Saturday and i will get to baptize 

her!  its amazing to see how the gospel has changed her life.  she wouldn't even look in 

my eyes when we first started teaching but now she truly is happy and has that glow in 

her eyes!! its so great!!!  in closing i will be staying in Gyesan area for another 2 transfers

This Is True Happiness.

i am so excited to go and do grandpa’s baptism tomorrow!! we gave a blessing to an old lady this week too.. it reminded me of grandpa's blessing.

this week was great!  we were finally able to teach our less actives (now fully active) sister and she is golden!  her daughter begs her to come to church ever since they came to the ward Christmas party. the mom trusts us more now and not the internet, she also loves the Book of Mormon. our ward has a new mission plan, which includes allowing us to take investigators to meals with members. we took an investigator last night and the members were awesome and we now know our investigators needs!

our most progressive investigator came to church hung over yesterday, which i actually count as a huge miracle. since she wasn't feeling well, we were able to explain to her that the ward wasn't giving her pressure to be a member, but that they were just being friendly. she has 2 great fellow shippers and she says, she loves 'progressing' in her knowledge.

our new gospel doctrine class started and it was perfect to have her learn about Heavenly Father. we are excited for the news of our investigator that we 家俺d to 何乞 is getting baptized. She lives right next to our church and will come to our ward. When the sisters came into our area, we referred them to her, Elder Clawson is hoping that he can baptize her since she was one of the first people he taught and testified to.

the English class we started 3 transfers ago, is now up to 26 people and almost 1/2 are members. our ward is getting excited!  we have 2 less actives coming to church weekly and since we have found an investigator through the less actives, we are going to be focusing this month on less actives and finding more contacts through them. our focus on investigators is fellow shippers and getting them all to church so the ward can do the rest of the work.

i love missionary work!  this is true happiness!  my personal study is good and I have been able to focus more lately.  this week I found it interesting to use the commandment of the Sabbath day with the message of the restoration. training is good no complaints.

we have progressing investigators, member’s trust, and great relationships with everyone involved. it is a huge blessing to see this area progress so much!
have a good week!  i love missionary work!
