So, today I want to bear personal testimony about Prayer. Prayer is so crucial in our daily lives because through praying we are able to speak with our Heavenly Father. We are able to show our gratitude and ask for His help, but most importantly through prayer, we are able to know with all certainty that he is there, loves us and has prepared a way for us to live the most happy as we can. So today a scripture that I would love to share is 2 Nephi 4:35. It reads, "Yea, I know that God will give liberally to him that asketh. Yea, my God will give me, if I ask not amiss; therefore I will lift up my voice unto thee; yea, I will cry unto thee, my God, the rock of my righteousness. Behold, my voice shall forever ascend up unto thee, my rock and mine everlasting God. Amen." As the prophet, Nephi, testifies, I promise that if we will ask of god, Our Loving Heavenly Father will answer and we may know that he is there and loves us.
So on to the week --- So this week was fantastic! On Monday, we went bowling, ate with the sisters and then went off to do all the other things that we needed to do. Then after which, we had a sister missionary who had finished come back to Miryang with her family. So we played and talked and there were so many people at our Family Home Evening and it was absolutely fantastic! We had a great time and so many people attended!! They all seemed to have had a great time and I will send that group picture later. But that was Monday!
Then on Tuesday, we studied on the morning and then ate lunch as the average missionary does and then met up with the sisters at the Church to do our Area meeting. Then after doing so, we went to go visit the detention center where You Ir lives and he is always just as happy as ever. He was working out just beforehand so he was a bit tired, but he was happy to see us. Then after which we went talking to other people and then we went to our branch president's house to go have dinner. After dinner, we came to the church and had English class, and after which we taught a lesson to our friend, Tony, who is 50 and is Korean with our branch president and Tony is just happy to learn the gospel!
Then on Wednesday, we had our district meeting here in Miryang and then went out to eat with all the members of our group and then after which, Elder Quiroz and I went with different companions and I stayed in Miryang and Elder Quiroz went to place called Dogye. So I teamed up with an Elder named Elder Martin and we went out and talked to a whole bunch of people on the street and then went to meet Tony and study the Book of Mormon and help him understand it. Then we went out to eat together and finally went and talked to people going home. Then when we got to our apartment complex, we went and visited Ryoo Jechung who is our Old North Korean friend and he was just very happy to see us! :)
On Thursday, we studied and talked and then we de-exchanged and then we came back to Miryang, and it was raining super hard. But we talked to some people and then had a special meeting with the sisters and one of their investigators and then we went outside even more and talked to a whole bunch of people, then came back to the church again and then meet Tony. We studied the scriptures even more and then we went out and ate with him. Then we went home and planned and that was our Thursday.
On Friday, we studied in the morning and then went outside and went talked to many people and then we did our service activity. We went out to eat with the member and then we served with him and then went home, showered, then went out again and that was our day.
On Saturday we studied in the morning and then we ate and went to the church where we taught English class, then played ping pong and talked to many people and then cleaned the church and then after which we went outside for a little bit and talked to people and that was our very simply laid out day.
Sunday, we had church which was great and I got to teach the young men and they had a whole lot of fun with the lesson and then something kind of insane happened. So one of the sisters’ investigators came in and was super happy and was just like... “Hey.. I want to get baptized.” But she is having some very insane mood swings lately, so we are not sure as of yet, but she is very happy and willing and we are very excited for that day. After which we went outside and talked to some people and then went home and did planning for today and that was our day!
Also I will add this in the next email, but today, we played tennis and that was so fun! But anyways it was amazing and I love you all so much!!
Love you and I hope you all have a great week! I will tell you how transfers go!! I miss you guys a bunch!
