hi lovey dovies!!!! love you all and happy easter!! we had MIRACLES left and right yesterday and i know that the Lord was looking out for us. Some special news: we have a mission conference this week where Sister Linda Burton is speaking to us!!! cool right?? i'm excited. also i get to go to the temple this week finally. seriously i haven't gone for the last two months and it feels like a spitirual drought! going to the temple is the best! so take advantage of it you endowed people!!
okay miracle of miracles that taught me again that the Lord works in seriously mysterious ways. so last sunday we went to go visit a less active. in korea a lot of the less actives are "unknown" less-actives aka we don't know if they actually live there so we were the pioneers and went to search her out! so we went and sure enough she was home. her husband is not a member by the way. so the whole visit was the weirdest experience ever. from the very beginning we weren't welcomed it and it was just kind of awkward the whole thing. she knew nothing about the church, thought we were jehovah's witness or catholic and was just very confused. remembered that she got baptised but didn't any doctrine whatsoever. so i asked her literally like 30 times if we could come and teach her lessons/invited her husband to take the lessons. they would not answer me it was so frustrating! they would say something that didn't answer my question and then just stare at me and i was like i am not afraid of silence people!! i asked them so directly to it wasn't even beating around the bush! the husband kept saying he wanted to learn english but didn't have religion interest. and he wanted his wife to learn english but she was being weird and i could tell she was a little off. anyway in the end the husband told us to come back every week and teach english/ share a message about the church. win!
so tuesday last week she calls and she's like yeah my husband told you to come, but don't come. and i was like why? and she was the whole thing is weird and i don't want you to come. so i was like okay i won't. respect agency right? that night we reported the visit to my bishop and he told me that she has a mental problem and not to visit her.
so yesterday her husband calls and is like are you coming? and i was like yeah your wife told me not to come....and he was like well can you still come? and i was like sure....
so we were stressing about whether or not to go but i thought it would be a good thing because her husband wasn't a member. so we go to the apartment and he's waiting outside for us and he's like we have to go to the park and i was like we follow him to this park and we sit on a bench and he brought crackers and soda and chocolate for us to eat. i was seriously weirded out the whole time. this was the guy that said he had no interest in religion!! so i just kind of made small talk with him about his family and i think he said his wife is bipolar and he found it amusing that she told us not to come. and then we started talking about church and he was like I don't know if God exists. does He?? and I was like YES!! so we taught him about God and prayer and prophets and things like that and it was so awesome! and he's interested about learning more! He can't tell his wife that we're meeting though or else she'll get super angry soooo not sure what to do about that but it was a miracle of miracles! His name is brother kim so pray for him!
our other investigator Sister chway is very frustrating! She knows that what we're teaching is good and a good way for her to live, but she doesn't want to change and give up her old ways and lifestyle. Pray for her please!
also read the book of mormon because it's awesome. Nephi is the greatest man who ever leeeeved!!
