week 4 – “We need to grab those hands that hang hopelessly down”
This week has been fantastic! We are seeing the blessings that come from being exactly obedient. My companion and I decided we needed to work on being 100% obedient and it has created sooooo many miracles. We gained a new investigator, we have recieved a a lot of referrals, we have 3 new members for our English class, we are teaching with more power and with the spirit, 김윤애 kimyooneh our less active is drinking less coffee, and we have a for sure baptism on april 6th. It has made us completely exhausted by the end of the day though. Which is fantastic!!!! We are working hard and trying to be what the Lord wants us to be.
So, korea is still amazing and I love it! There are a few things that are interesting that we would never see in America. But i love it! There are sometimes tables with pig heads and feet, there is a lot of hanging meat, and fish everywhere! I love it! I love being in a completely different place. It makes everyday an adventure and soooo much fun!
On sunday we had an awesome 고기 (meat) party and our recent converts country home (natalia and her husband). It was a blast being able to spend time with the members and get to know them. We ate sooooo much meat! And we took a lot of oils to compensate it all and we feel a lot better. The korean bbq is sooooo good!
Me and my companion are reading Jesus the Christ. It is sooooooooo good and amzing! I really suggest reading it because you gain a lot of insight from it. It is amazing!!!! We are becoming obsessed with it.
I will leave a spiritual message. I was reading in the gospel principles book and it was on sacrifice. I wrote this quote in my planner…”People have always been tried and tested to see if they will put the things of God first in their lives”.
A lot of people don’t realize that God gives us trials so he can test us and see what we will do with them. We are tested on our reaction to what is lotted to us in this life. It is amazing that God blesses us more abundantly as we trudge through and come out better. Trials are for our benefit! There is no way better for us to learn then to go through trials. Heavenly Father is seriously the best!!! I love him and he loves us in return. This is what we are sharing. Our work with the less actives is bringing people back and lifting them up becuase they are hopelessly lost. I love this work and I am so grateful for what Heavenly Father is helping us do. This is His work, and we are his vessels. We need to keep the spirit of Christ within us. We can be powerful tools in his hands. BE THAT TOOL!!!!!
