Just please let me teach your children........

Miracles!!!!!!!!!! So remember a few weeks ago when I was all sad and down because we had just one investigator..... ha ha. Well,  I prayed my heart out, have been so obedient, and worked my butt off!!!!!!!!! In just 3 weeks we have found 8 new investigators and an investigating family on the way!!!!! :)) God answers prayers. I prayed for him to let me teach!!!!! I said "God even if I have to teach stupid English I will do it. Just please let me teach your children this gospel". And he answered my prayers. Of our 11 investigators 8 are English interest..... but don't worry, through our message, they will be baptized!!! I know it.  God answers prayers. We are so busy teaching and finding and being with members, it is such a blessing. And our amazing ward has decided to focus on Less actives.... my favorite!!!!!! I love less actives.!!!!! Our ward has gotten all of the names of the less actives and we are all going to try to find them and invite them back to the fold of God!!!!!!! Our ward is so excited about it. Especially our Bishop.!!!!! I love that man. Our bishop and ward mission leader, are tow of the most amazing men I know!!!!!!! They love missionary work and they love us missionaries and they are constantly helping us, and finding. Amazing men. Good examples to me.
Our new Mission President Shin is AMAZING. Former CEO of Samsung, my branch president from the MTC.  I Love him. He is the cutest and has such a strong desire to do missionary work!!!!! We will see amazing miracles with him!!!!!!!
So Korea.... is BURNING HOT. ha ha. I am melting!!!!!!!!!!! I drink, 2 liters of water, or more, a day and I am melting. The worst part is the humidity.  But it is still so fun. I think I shower 2 times a day. ha ha. My other roommate showers 4 times a day.... ha ha. So funny.  No AC and life is great.   the worst is that we have 4 sisters who want to wash clothes and washing is fine.... but no one in Korea owns a dryer... so we hang our clothes..... well we are finding that we have no where to hang clothes because they take about 3 days to dry.... ah ha. So fun.... I have been wearing a lot of wet clothes lately.... ah ha.
Still loving the Korean food. A normal meal for me at home is kimchi (cucumber kimchi is my favorite), seaweed, rice and tuna...... That's what I eat. And when we go eat with members (about once every other week or three weeks) we eat those same things but usually with fish and meat and salads. I'm eating healthy, that's for sure.
Mom, I read those scriptures you sent last week... LOVED THEM!!!!!! I have a few scriptures I want to share with you:)
1: St. John 9:38 "And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshiped him". I am reading the bible right now with the book or Mormon and I am LOVING it. I love seeing the truths of the gospel not only in the book of Mormon, but also in the bible....LOVE IT!!!!!
2: St John 17:26 the lords prayer "And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them". Love this prayer. God is with us. And Christ's love is in us. Our father and savior love us so much!!!!!!
3St john 15:18 "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you". Sometimes when we talk to people on the street we feel like they hate us. really hate us..... I'm not surprised it I get spit on one of these times. But I know it's only in the name of Christ. Christ was truly hated of men and was hated all alone. But because he was alone, will never have to be hated alone.
I want to talk about my investigators.
Sister Kwan: from china... SHE READ THE BOOK OF MORMON. she read a whole chapter!!!!!!! I am so excited. She still doesn't want to come to church, but she is reading the book of Mormon. When I teach her I really feel the spirit. she is so poor that she is so humble and knows and feels of God loves!!!!!!!!
Sister Song: We meet her this week but she is the golden investigator who couldn't meet because she is a teacher of all the crazy mom's kids... so she was too busy to meet. but we have been calling her and she said she is excited to meet and read the word of god:) So amazing!!!!! Love her.
Wow.... out of time. sorry. I really do love my investigators... I didn't' know I was almost out of time.... but I want to share one last thing...... this week when we met with sister Lee our recent convert, we talked about missionary work and why each of us chose to be missionaries. This is what I said....... I got it from President Eyrings gen con talk "For some it was that and more. Like the sons of Mosiah, they had felt the effects of sin in their own lives and the marvelous healing of the Atonement within the church of God. Out of love and gratitude for the savior's gift to them, they wanted to help everyone they could to escape the sadness of sin, feel the joy of forgiveness and gather with them to safety in the Kingdom of god". That is what I shared. That is exactly why I chose to serve a mission. I love this work. I love teaching of Christ and his amazing, powerful, loving, perfect atonement. It's real. WE can be healed. Really. I love you all to the moon and back.
