Dear Family and Friends,
The first part of this week was pretty slow because of Chusok, but it was good! We ended up having a meal appointment every day for the holiday, and one of them was a family that had less-active members. We talked about the temple, and they said they wanted to go to the temple soon! It was awesome!
We also planned with a member to invite our recent convert and a potential investigator to a Family Home Evening and we had an activity and taught a short lesson. The elders who came with us gave the potential investigator a copy of the Book of Mormon. The elders will probably meet this investigator next Sunday. Then our Recent Convert talked with the member about the family history work she was doing, and they’ll meet together to work on Family History!! It was so awesome! It was a little hard to do, but we taught a less-active, a recent convert, and a potential investigator all in the same Family Home Evening. I think I would call that a success!
We had three lessons in one day this last week! One was a woman I talked to on the train and I gave her a copy of the Book of Mormon. The next was our investigator that we met at her house. Then we were streetboarding and taught a lesson in front of the Subway station. It was a huge miracle! The sad part is that the woman I talked to on the train left the Book of Mormon on a Mountain trail later, and someone found the book and called to return it. These people gave us their address, so we plan to reffer them to the missionaries in Seoul and hopefully they’ll end up being new investigators! That would be an awesome conversion story, don’t you think?^^
A formor investigator called us this week asking me why some people were born and died happy, and some were born and died unhappy. I told her how much God loved her and wants her to be happy. Through Christ we can become happy, no matter the situation. We made a return appointment with her next week, and I’m praying to have the spirit with us so that we can say what Heavenly Father wants her to hear! I’m grateful that we have the opportunity to meet her and help her realize that God really does love and care about her!
This week was busy and we saw so many miracles! I just have to keep up with them all! I’m so grateful for our loving Father in Heaven who loves us so much and wants to help us become the best we can be. When we know that God loves us it can give us so much strength to push through the hard times! I know this church is true, and I know that when we rely on God he will help us. I know by experience this works. This is a happy church!^^
I love you so much! I hope you all have a wonderful week! Thank you for your prayers!
