This week we did a lot for the missionary activity the ward had. It was to introduce the church to a bunch of people, so we talked to as many people as we could and invited the members to invite their friends and aquaintences, and we hoped and prayed that people would show up. Two of our investigators came! It was amazing! And they both felt so welcome by the ward and they had fun and I think they’ll want to come again sometime. Our 10 year old investigator told another missionary that she wants to get baptised. We’re trying to help her mom because we need permission for her to be baptised! Hopefully this transfer we can, but we need the member’s help for that, and lots of faith!
Transfer calls were this week, and I’m staying with Sister Tolley for another transfer! Woot! I’m pretty sure I’m going to end my mission in Gyomun now, but we don’t know for sure. At any rate, I’m glad I get to stay because there are lots of things I still need to do here! This week we were able to find a new place to contact people and the people are so much nicer! We are on a secret quest to find as many new places to contact people as we can, and I’ve got a plan on how to do that. I’m looking for places on our map and then we test them out. Hopefully we’ll be able to find three or four before the transfer gets out!
Now for The Second Parable of the Streetboard:
So after we made the first streetboard and fixed it with pictures of the Savior, we realized and were told that even after all of that work the title was misspelled. ㅠㅠ So we had to start all over with a new board and re-attach the books to it. This time we managed to get the lamination paper to go on well, and it looked a million times better! This time the pictures of the Savior enhanced the board and made it look beautiful.
Likening this again to the Atonement, sometimes after all you can do, the Holy Ghost whispers that you need to confess and repent. Sometimes that means tearing all of the bad parts off and starting over completely fresh. Repentance is beautiful, and I’m so grateful for the power of the Atonement.
I hope you all have a wonderful week! For those of you starting school, 화이팅! Good luck to you, and I pray for you always! You are amazing!
