Anyway, after that we went and taught Jason> He's doing good. Haha the english part was good. And then 최영규 came and we taught him the gospel. The problem was that both of them love to talk way too much. Haha but it's fine. They talked a lot and basically just answered 정재승 Jason's questions the whole time. so that was perfect! Then we came home! and that was our week!

Thought - Testimony of the Book of Mormon
So i recently finished the book of mormon and wanted to let you guys know that i know it's true. I restarted it this week and am already to 2 nephi 10. Haha i can't put it down. It's so good. :) Anyway, let's listen to a prophet bear his testimony on it. I love that video so much. Always hits me so strong. The book of mormon is true. And any person who reads it and prays about it the way moroni describes will get that answer. So if you haven't done that, or if it's been a while since you have i would invite you to do so. To pray about it so you can regain the knowledge or gain that knowledge that it's true. :) Love you so much!
