Today marks the last week I have with Sister Park before she heads off to the MTC! She's going to do great and I am sad to see her go. ㅠㅠ
So! This week!
When I reviewed my journal this week I found out that I did, in fact, do things. I will endeavor to tell you what some of those things are.
We met some JW the other day. Nice people. Talked about... I forget. The one lady was like "Mormons!" And we were like "Missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!" That's so much shorter in Korean. XD
We got an online referral the other day for a girl who lives in Osan. We got the apartment number and name, but not the area the apartment is in, and there are 5 apartments with the same name in Osan, so we got to go on an Osan tour trying to find her! Quite the fun time. Still haven't found her.
Sister Park and I went to go eat food before English class and while we were eating at one point she just stared at me for a long time then I asked why and she started crying! AWwww Sister Park~ She was sad she would be leaving. She cried so much she had rivers coming out her nose and then she sniffed and it made a bubble and suddenly we were both laughing! Funny memories, for sure. Later on she was trying to learn some English expressions, of of them being "That stinks" and I was trying to give her an example so I said "If I say 'my dog died' you say that stinks" And she wrote it down, but she wrote it down as in the phrase My dog died=That stinks. So maybe if we hadn't corrected it someone would have told her something sad and she would have responded "My dog died." Hehehehehe
The guy we met last Tuesday while contacting came to our English class and brought someone with him! It was great to see someone Sister Park contacted come to class! She was able to feel really good about it as well~
We had a great experience with one of our younger investigators! We had met her a few times with not much progression, but we had shared a lot of testimonies and experiences about how we got answers to our prayers, and we had continually invited her to pray for things she needed. This week when we met something about her seemed brighter. As we started the lesson she shared that she had lost her headphones and looked for a long time to find them but couldn't, and then she remembered what we had taught her about prayer. So she said a prayer and was able to find them! She said she felt really good~ Its so great to see her become happier and light come into her life as she works to apply the things she's been learning! :D
We met with a recent convert and after, the member we met her with asked me about my family rules. I told her about how strict my parents were on me when I was little and she responded that she would really like to meet my dad and that my parents are amazing. She told me a few days later "I told my son about your family rules and then I told him 'In Korea there are not a lot of rules in families, and we have lots of rules, but we don't have as many as Sister Brooksby, so we are just in the middle, so you can be grateful for our rules and follow them.' And then suddenly our rules didn't seem so bad!" So funny XD
We went to stake conference yesterday. It was a special stake conference where 4 stakes got combined! The Suwon and Youngdong stakes are now the Kyunggi stake, and the Anyang and Seoul South stake are combined to make... Something? Hehe not sure. Anyway, super cool meeting, a bunch of church leaders came and spoke. :) We also got to see a lot of people we haven't seen in forever! That was fun.^^ Always cool to see old faces!
I think that is all I have to report. Hey life is fun guys, don't forget~
Do each of you find joy in the gospel? If not, its not a problem with the gospel, I guarantee it! ;) God intended for us to find joy in every step of our journey, and that's the thing with the word 'find', its there, its just our job to see it!! How hard are you looking? And are you willing to look harder? ;) I love you all! I love this gospel! I love my Savior, brother, friend, Jesus Christ.
