Anyways, everything was pretty great this week and we are super happy that we are here and I love it here so much!!
So this week as I've thought about what I want to write about. I was brought back to an experience that I had just yesterday! So we had a family who came from the States and the children are half Korean. When they came to church, because the kids started learning Korean just last year, so I had to translate for them yesterday.
The reason why I am sharing this is because of a scripture that comes to mind is in Doctrine & Covenants 90:11, it reads "For it shall come to pass in that day, that every man shall hear the fulness of the gospel in his own tongue, and in his own language, through those who are ordained unto this power, by the administration of the Comforter, shed forth upon them for the revelation of Jesus Christ."
A basic interpretation of this is really that everyone will be able to hear the enriching Gospel of Jesus Christ and that they will be able to know for themselves if these things are true or not! It is wonderful that we are able to do these things and to love others and give them the opportunity to come unto Christ! No matter where we go, or what we do, the gospel of Jesus Christ available for all! This is a wonderful work and I know this Church is true!!
So this week was wonderful!! On Monday, we cleaned our house and emailed and got ready for the week and then we had our Family Home Evening at the Church where we played games with all who came and it was a great day!!
On Tuesay, we were able to go outside in the burning sunlight and to talk to people for a little bit after we had a meeting with the sister missionaries. Then we were able to meet a new investigator named Kim Dongyeong, he wants to learn about the gospel and it seems like we will be able to keep meeting with him. Then we were able to go outside
and talk to some more people. We also went out to dinner with someone who both, Elder Kim and I didn't know, but it turned out that the person was an old friend of one of my companions' mom! So we did that and then we met with Brother Kim Yongho and that was amazing!
Wednesday was our district meeting so we attended that, and then ate lunch and went outside and talked to people -- it was very warm that day for sure! Then after a little bit, we had English class, and talked to Kim Yongho after the English class and which was great! We were actually able to meet some really great people!! I super love being here in Gyeongsan, and just reaching out to others is great!
On Thursday, my companion's eye hurt, so we went to the doctor in the morning, and then went to our service project!! After the project, we came to the church and planned for a little bit, then went outside in the scorching sun and talked to a whole bunch of people!! Many people wanted to talk to us today actually!! Then we had Japanese class: it has been really good lately!
On Friday, we studied in the morning, ate lunch, planned for this week, and then went outside -- it was kind of raining
and super cool!! So it was great!! Then after going out and talking to an innumerable amount of people, we went and helped move a whole lot of furniture for the stake president and branch president. Then we ate dinner and that was our day.
On Saturday, we had English class, cleaned the church and
went and met with someone who said he wanted to meet us
and talk with us. So, we went pretty far away and met him. All he really wanted to do was talk about how his church was right and ours was wrong. We said to him that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and it turned out okay! Then we came back and had a dinner appointment and met with some other people and that was the rest of our Saturday.
On Sunday, we did all our studied, went to the church, and had church meetings. I ended up translating at the church and playing the piano. It was a joy really!! Also... Brother Kim Yongho receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and that was wonderful as well!! Then we had a meeting and then met with Brother Kim. After that we went outside to talk to other people. Then we came back home at night and ate dinner, and that was my week!!
I love you all and I miss you so much! Being here is wonderful and there really aren't any other words to describe it, but it is great here!
