Hello Everyone! I can’t believe it but I have only 4 more days until I leave for Korea. WAHH????!!! I can’t believe it at all! it is crazy to be. I have had an amazing time at the MTC and will always remember and cherish the memories and what I have learned here. It could not have been better. I am ready for Korea and I am excited to go!

me and my new companions! BTW SISTER STASTY IS AWESOME!

Woooooohh! It’a going to be a super loooooong trip!
I just want to thank everyone for the love and support you all give me. I have felt the prayers and know I am ready to serve in Korea.
Well, I don’t have much time but I will share my thoughts of the last few days from my journal. It has been such a spectacular week…You will know why….
Here is my Journal Entry:
Butterfield, Watson, and I had a really good lesson with Choi Chamanim. We talked about the law of chastity and tithing. She didn’t have trouble with the law of chastity but she did with tithing. During that lesson it was about 10 minutes of chastity and 50 minutes tithing. Even most of the lesson on tithing was silence. We waited for the spirit to teach. The spirit was so strong in that room. Choi Chamanim even cried and gave a super sincere prayer during the lesson. She didn’t want to at first but then Watson Chagnonim persisted. We felt really good about that lesson. Afterwards, we asked Sister Sagers if she heard about the lesson. She said she did and that Sister Lee told her we were ready for the field and are prepared to teach with real power. Wow, I really appreciated that because I felt a little inadequate to go to Korea.

Me and a native

The cute korean elders

Of course the classic riding missionaries.

Another lesson we had yesterday was a practice lesson using all of the fundamentals. Hence, all 5 of us: Elder Shields, Elder Leftwich, Elder Butterfield, Elder Watson, and I Had to teach one person. Sister Sagers was an investigator by the name of Sister Oh. Our first lesson didn’t go well because we were all crazy so we started over. The second lesson was powerful! The spirit was really strong as well. Afterwards, Sister Sagers told us that was amazing and that she is so happy because she now knows for herself that we are ready. We got to know the investigator and we asked inspired questions. We asked questions that really pertained to her which made it powerful. I really needed those lessons because it really confirmed to me that no matter how inadequate I feel, the Lord knows me and trusts in me. I know that if i try my hardest, the Lord will guide me, strengthen me, and will fill in any gaps that I lack. I know the Lord is with me no matter where i go. I know he loves me. I know he is preparing me to teach certain people. Sister Lee told me the other day to treat everyone as if you were friends in the pre-mortal life and you promised to find them. You promised that you would help them find the gospel and come back to him. I am excited for that. I know it is true. I also promised to the Lord that I will give my full self to him to be the best tool i can be. We are all here for a reason and I know that i am supposed to be here, right now, being prepared to leave for Korea. we have 4 more days and I will give it my all. I am very grateful for this MTC experience because i have learned so much more than I could of anywhere else. I know I have changed, for the better, since being here. I know there is still more to change and I am excited for that.
I am seriously so excited and feel so ready to teach in Korea. I know that if I have the spirit with me, I will be able to bless the lives of others. I can’t wait!!!!
I love you all so much!!!!! I love this gospel and know that is true with all my heart and soul. Be missionaries yourselves! Share what you love! You will be blessed for it. Trust me. With the Lord, NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE. He makes YOU POSSIBLE.
Love, Sister Orme
p.s. my next email will be from KOREA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ^^    <—Korean happy face

I want to go to the Fish Kingdom too

Well, I decided that I wanted to go to the Fish Kingdom instead of the Celestial Kingdom. We can’t have a week without another funny. Sometimes the sounds sound way too similar and that is why I get them mixed up. Wooh!

Don’t worry. I just have 11 more days left until I leave for Korea. I got it. Hahah.

Well, since I didn’t get to tell you last time what my role is as a Sister Training Leader I will tell you now. Well, I get to interview the Sisters, I am in District Counsel, we get to welcome in the natives, and give them orientation. We get to give orientation to any new members. I am the eyes and ears of the Branch Presidency so I report back what they say to everyone else, along with the two zone leaders and the other sister training leader. It is wonderful! It has really made me a better person. We keep tabs on the sisters, and we get to help and guide them, if needed.

Speaking of Natives…. We got our District’s natives this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are ours! What?!??!?! I can’t believe it. They are soooo cute! I love them already.

I have learned a lot this week. I just can’t believe that it is almost time to go to Korea. Where did the time go???

Thank you everyone for sending me Letters, emails, and Dear Elders. They are just the greatest!

Well, this week really reiterated the importance of keeping a foundation of faith on the Book of Mormon. We cannot be touched by the devil if we do.

Some other things are from devos…When everything says you can’t, believe in the part of you that says you can. It’s not who you aren’t, it is who you are and being yourself is being great!

These are awesome! We put these quotes on our chalkboard so we can keep these in mind.

We had a really great tuesday devo. Brother W. Craig Zwick from the Seventy came. He and his wife were awesome! His wife spoke of patience and said that patience is a process of perfection. Brother Zwick spoke about salvation. He gave us these questions to think about: 1. What does “hasten the work of salvation” meant to you? 2. How does your understanding of teh “work of salvation” help those you will teach? Think about these questions. But think about them in a sense of your friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. Who can you teach? How can you apply these questions into your life to better understand the importance of sharing the gospel? Salvation is first for us, then for our families. It is about bringing families back to the Celestial Kingdom. Satan, right now, is attacking families fiercely. We got to fight back and make sure that the family unit is the most important thing in people’s lives.

We went to the temple today. It was soooo wonderful! It is amazing everytime! It is such a sacred place and the spirit is soooooo strong. While I was participating in the endowment, I was feeling the spirit so strongly. I just know with all my heart that this gospel is true. We, as missionaries, have such a sacred calling to do this. We can change people’s lives. We can help them return to our  Heavenly Father. I could not be doing anything else then being on a mission. It is seriously the greatest! I am so happy. I love the gospel and I cannot stress to you all enough how important it is to share it and to live it. We are blessed beyond anything we could imagine.

I am so grateful for my family, and my friends. You all make life so much better. Remember the Lord is always with you. He loves you dearly and wants you to return to him. Not one sheep does he want lost, we just have to go find them for him.

Well, unfortunately I have to go! Hopefully, I can write longer next time!!!!


Love, Sister Orme
