I almost forgot, it is almost Easter! In Korea, surprisingly about 30% of people are Christian, but Easter isn't that big of a thing here. I love Easter because although, the Savior was crucified during this period, he took upon our sins, that if we use his atonement then we can be cleansed, and that because he died on the cross, that he was able to accomplish his purpose of coming to Earth. But the best part about Easter is that Jesus Christ was resurrected and he lives today. That because of him, we can all overcome our obstacles and sins and everything that drags us down, and we can be like him!
Last Monday, we went shopping in the morning and got our haircut and then we went to go meet Sister Clove and her family for P-day! We ate together and got to talk and then they left and we went bowling with the other missionaries that were there. Then we came to the church and emailed and then went home and slept for a little bit and then went outside for the rest of the night and preached the gospel to others.
On Tuesday, we studied in the morning and then we went to the church to do some office work, and we did that for a little bit and then we went home and ate dinner and then we went outside for the remainder of the day and found some great people that wanted to listen to the gospel of Jesus Christ and learn about it.
Wednesday, we had our Zone Conference. So we went to the mission home early in the morning and then we listened to a few talks and had a work shop and then ate lunch. Then we listened to some more talks and had a discussion and that was wonderful to do. The topic of the conference was faith, so we talked about faith and how by exercising faith, we are able to do all things. Then we went home and had dinner
and then went out for the rest of the day.
On Thursday, we went outside in the morning and ended up adventuring into the mountains while we were talking to some people. WE ended up at a Buddhist temple and took some pictures and then we went back home, studied and then went outside again. It was super warm and we were able to meet with a new investigator and then we came back to our house and made food and went to go eat dinner with some of the other teams in our area and then we had English Class. After English Class we taught a lesson to 정민화 (Jeong Minhwa) and that was great!
Friday was pretty busy. We went outside and just were able to talk to people. It was great!! WE walked for a long time and were able to talk and help some people! Then we were able to go to Busan National University and sticker board! Then came home and then talked to some more people.
On Saturday, we went outside for a bit and then came to the church and did office work again and then we went outside again and then we came back to the church for English Class. So we did English class and then taught Jeong Min Hwa again and then I did office work for the rest of the day and we ordered dinner.
Sunday, we had church and then had meetings afterwards and then after that we really didn't have anything after that, so we ate dinner and then went outside and talked with other people and then came back home!
It was such a good week and I love being able to serve and to find people to teach and to talk to others about our Savior Jesus Christ.
