Monday we met with 유복준 Daniel Yoo and got dinner and then taught him about the plan of salvation. That went aweosme. He said he had a bunch of questions but he answered them all himself. Then we taught 최영규 Choi Younggyu, our ward mission leader, about the gift of the holy ghost. That was super good. He said he felt the spirit and gave us some super good tips so that was awesome. Also talked to him about how he's been doing on missionary work. Tuesday we had district meeting and then we met robert which was good. We taught him the restoration and he's been praying like every day that we remind him. so that's awesome. THere's been a real change in him from just praying so i know that prayer can have a huge effect. Do it everyday! Then we got dinner with some of our friends we've been trying to meet. They also came to english class! So they might become new investigators this week. We'll see what happens! We also met a guy who was a missionary for another church that has similar beliefs to ours minus the book of mormon. But they have a prophet and apostles and stuff. So that was awesome. Wednesday we had our interviews which were super awesome. I'll have to tell you guys about em some other time. AKA like when i get home. Needless to say i love president. The rest of the day we didn't meet with anyone so that was sad. But president after interviews stayed in seocho and worked with the other elders so that was cool. Thursday we had my last Zone Training Meeting. That was sad....but it's fine. It was gonna happen eventually right? So that was fun. I gave like a 마지막말씀 which in english doesn't make sense cuz we don't say that. So yeah i gave that. and it was okay. There's only one other person in our zone going home with me. So that was fun. after that we came back and met Mr. Lee and this woman he knows who isn't his wife so that was interesting, but we got dinner with him and then talked to em abuot stuff. tried to keep it on church then we came and talked to easun and 차성욱 Cha Sungook for a while and watched the because he lives video. Cha Sungook said he wanted to do the family english program with us so new investigator! Heck yeah! Friday we had weekly planningThen went and talked with a grandma for forever because her son who was less active wasn't home haha so we talked to her then met easun again. He wanted to get pizza cuz he couldn't on wednesday which was elder coleman's birthday so we did that. so cool. then we went and met our boy, 김시홍 Kim Shihong. that went really good! We taught him the restoration and got a baptismal date with him! That was so good! Its for June 27th. THe day after i get home haha. but that's fine. The spirit was there, and it was just a really good lesson. Saturday was awesome too. We met robert again and he taught us the restoration this time so that was good. :) Then we met a guy before english class who is interested in God too. THen we had english class and then we visited 어덕수 Oh Ducksoo> That was awesome. he's super cool. And his wife is hilarious. But we met them and shared a message on families and how the gospel can really bless us. So yeah! Yesterday we had church and weren't able to meet anyone! But pretty good week right? Lots of stuff going on here. I'm definitely tryin to go out with a bang. :) So that's cool. Basically highlights of this week are the baptismal date. Super aweosme! Haha also, sunday we had two people come up to us and want us to contact them and asked us for their numbers so that was crazy. :)
Thought for this week: Reason for Obedience - Dieter F. UchtdorfI decided I really really like deiter f. uchtdorf. Every one of his talks is exactly what i need. So i was reading this talk and really liked it. It's called Living the Gospel Joyful. He gave it to the sisters in October 2014. the first quote is "When we treat God’s commandments and our part in building His kingdom like something to check off on a to-do list, we miss the heart of discipleship. We miss the growth that comes from joyfully living the commandments of our Father in Heaven." So basically we need to see the commandments as a blessing. There for our benefit. Cuz when we don't when we see the commandments as things forced on us, "we imagine that God has all of His blessings locked in a huge cloud up in heaven, refusing to give them to us unless we comply with some strict, paternalistic requirements He has setup. But the commandments aren’t like that at all. In reality, Heavenly Father is constantly raining blessings upon us. It is our fear, doubt, and sin that, like an umbrella, block these blessings from reaching us." He's always blessing us. It's up to us to accept them or not. Based on our obedience and our heart. if our heart wants to obey, then we will be extremely blessed. :)
See you soon.
