Later I had the opportunity again to translate in primary for the youngest daughter of a military family and it was so much fun, even though she is four years old and has a bit of a hard time staying calm but I mean she only speaks English. So I spent two hours with her just… well teaching and playing with her so it was really awesome!!
First off… 15,000 years is a long time!
Wow another week has gone by in Bundang! It was really a pretty good week. My companion was sick so that wasn’t great, but she is getting better so that is the good news! And even though she was sick we were still able to see so many miracles!
So earlier this week we had a meal with some members who fed us Jajjamyung, just a common food with black-bean paste and noodles… I don’t know if that sounds good or not but it is! Also, jambong which is just spicy noodles with some clams and other things… maybe not clams I don’t know what they are called. Hehe! But It was really great and our members are always so nice! Then we had another meal at another Chinese restaurant the next night with bishop and our long lost ward mission leader and his wife! They have been in America for 3 or 4 months and just got back! So Tuesday we were with our investigator and she was telling us how she was having a hard time with not drinking coffee, so the word of wisdom. So we asked her how often she drinks it, maybe we could make a more specific goal that would help her. So she drinks it twice a day we learned. Then we were able to commit her to only drink it once in the morning and not again after work. So two days later we get a text from her saying in the past two days she had only drank coffee in the mornings!! We were soooo excited!!! She is progressing and coming closer to Christ in each step.
So then it was Wednesday and yayyy it was Zone conference!! We learned so so much about sanctity and consecration. Our STL’s and Zone leaders did a great job at teaching. Also then they asked us “are you down” to be a consecrated missionary, literally one by one, and in many crazy different ways. I think it was the funniest thing ever!
Friday we were able to meet with a potential investigator, and Saturday we went to the Stake relief society activity! It was a blast! I got to see members of my two old wards that I served in as well as learn about the LDS library app and learn about these fish pictures that we all drew… haha it’s kind of confusing but anyways….! We went with a less active to the activity then!!! SHE CAME TO CHURCH! It was awesome and the members were all Super happy to see her!! What a miracle!!
So something I learned from President at zone conference this week: President had all of us read a set of scriptures and answer three questions, who is talking, who are they talking to and what are they teaching? So we all went through and answered. And then President talked a little and asked us again now who are they Really teaching to and who are they Really teaching about. And the answers were Prophets teaching to Us about Christ. And that is what we teach and testify about as missionaries. Something need to remember is that this Gospel is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This church is the Church of Jesus Christ. We teach of Christ and Testify of Christ. That he Lives. I know Christ lives. He is the good tidings of Great Joy that we read about. He is the reason why we can progress, why we can do better and live with Heavenly Father again with our families for eternity.
Well, that’s all for now folks!
Have a Wonderful week!!
This week was super busy. First off. P DAY! We went to Minsokchun, the old village… Turns out it’s only 5 dollars on holidays… But we payed the 18 dollars anyways because we were already there! We bought lots of cool stuff to take home, but only after we got SOAKING WET IN THE ALL OF A SUDDEN TYPHOON RAIN. Luckily… I came prepared with my shoes that I had just put on after drying them for a week after the last All of a sudden typhoon the last time we went outside… also an umbrella… haha! It’s okay because I love Minsokchun….
