A guy brought one of his friends! So that was cool! I talked to him and got to know him! He was nice. We'll see if he keeps coming! I got his number so i'll probably call him and see what's up. But yeah! Then we had ward council which was good. Then we went home for a little and tried to eat something then we went and met Robert. He's the best. He's a member. we helped him sign up for LDSBC which is where he wants to go. He's the cutest haha he just has like no testimony so we are hoping to get him one. Anyway, we met him and taught him about the word of wisdom and how it helps us. So that was good. then we committed him to read the book of mormon everyday. so he's gonna do it! I hope! Then we went to 최영규 our ward mission leader's house for our weekly coorelation meeting which was really really good! he's the man! And after that we had a meal with him and his family. so thatw as awesome. then we came home and i had personal study! and yeah! that was our week!

Thought - Where are we? 
I really really love the mormon message by dieter f. uchtdorf about waiting on the road to damascus. not because we will have that kind of conversion experience but because he talks about in there about how we need to be fully engaged as disciples of Jesus Christ and so yeah here's the quote. "Do not doubt. Remember, “Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” God loves you. He hears your prayers. He speaks to His children and offers comfort, peace, and understanding to those who seek Him and honor Him by walking in His way.Brothers and sisters, dear friends, let us not wait too long on our road to Damascus. Instead, let us courageously move forward in faith, hope, and charity, and we will be blessed with the light we are all seeking upon the path of true discipleship" We shouldn't wait for something to shake us or have a vision to do our best in callings and everyday as His disciples. So yeah. :) Have a great week. Love you so much. You guys are the best. can't believe all the crazy news i've heard this week haha anyway, love you!
