Then we came home and had chicken for dinner and then we made a bunch of calls. Then we made some cards and visited a less active and yeah!
Tuesday - Jason and Dinner with 최상업
Tuesday was really good. After our studies and lunch we wrote a bunch of cards for members which was really good. We're trying to take em to all the members and get em excited about missionary work. Just get some referrals ya know. :) Haha then we went and met Jason at the library. that was good! We talked more about the gospel and he kind of like said we were forcing him to do things when in reality he was pressuring himself. so that was kinda stressful. but it's fine. Then we went to 양재 yangjae and part of our area where 최상업 Choi Sangup lives. He's the man. His daughter's husband is the owner of cupbob in utah. :) haha anyway, we had some dinner and then we did a practice lesson. We taught the restoration. I wish i would have taught better. A year and 10 months in and still need practice teachin the restoration...but it's alright. we can always improve. :) and then we came home!

Wednesday was really good. We were fasting as part of a 40 day fast in our mission and we saw some crazy miracles! Haha anyway after studies we went out and took some cards to some members and talked to them, shared a good message, then we had district meeting! That was really good. We talked all about being humble and talked about the problems of pride, watched Pride and the Priesthood by Dieter F. Uchtdorf. So good. I would suggest listening/watching it. Anyway, then we decided since we were fasting we needed to work pretty dang hard on finding so we went out and talked to people, just tried to follow the spirit and that was really good. Talked to a bunch of people got a bunch of numbers and also had a guy come up to us at the very end who wanted to meet us! So that was stinkin awesome! So cool! Then to end our fast we had Pizza school. Ah so good. haha anyway, then we went to the church and got ready for english class and that was way good! Just a classic day at english class. then we were going to visit a member with the bishop but they weren't home so we learned lots of korean from him. :) Pretty good day!

Thought - Missions
This morning I read again the talk "The Miracle of a Mission" by Jeffery R. Holland and wow it was good. I don't really want to quote anything from it, but i just want to tell you guys how much missions change lives. Like it's taken me a while but i'm finally realizing how much I've changed over the last two years. For the better of course. :) But I can honestly say that I've loved every day of my mission. And it means more to me than anything else. No way I'd rather be doing anything else and I know that anyone who goes on a mission will be happier during these two years or 1 and a half years than any other time. and that is simply because you're doing the work of the lord and he watches over us. I love it so much. And I love you so much. Have a great week. :)
