Dear Family and friends,
This week we did a lot of good work, I think. We were able to meet with a less active family that we’ve been trying to meet for a while. It’s really funny because we’ve found three less active families that have similar stories but have a slight twist. One family the parents are baptized, and the father likes us but the mother is a little hesitant. Their two children aren’t baptised, but they are willing to let us teach them. Then the family we met on Saturday the parents are members, and the mother likes us but the father is a little hesitant. The children aren’t baptised, but they are willing to let us teach them. And then our Bishop gave us a family to call and the mother is a member and she has two children who she would like to start meeting the missionaries and get baptised! It’s kind of amazing to me that we’ve found three families that have similar stories like that. It’s a reminder that Heavenly Father is in charge of this work and we just need to be ready to do it. We will keep following up with them and trying to help them! We are so excited for them!
The ward picnic was this week and the missionaries were invited to come. It was so fun and we got to talk with a lot of the members. It was interesting because one of the activities was a ward sing-a-long where everyone sang together, and then they had impromptu solos. The sister missionaries even sang, so we sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for them. They really liked it, I think.^^ Korean ward activities are so fun!
Tae hee, our recent convert, came to the picnic and she had a good time! She is doing so well in the ward now, and yesterday she got a calling! I have been so blessed to have been here to teach her and see her baptised as well as see her progress after baptism. She is so good and she’s getting to the point where she doesn’t need us anymore. Oh, the gospel is true!^^
I love the gospel so much, and I’m so grateful I get to serve here in this wonderful country and serve these wonderful people. I feel so blessed! Korea is one of my sacred places.
I hope you all have a wonderful week! I’m always praying for you! Keep smiling and keep the faith!
