Week 21- Pictures!

Hello Dearest Friends and Family-
News to the mainland! We have survived the really intense and powerful typhoon. We had a raging typhoon hit our area. We were so worried about what we would do for missionary work. The sprinkles/hot sun were waaaay too much for us. But seriously, we had warnings of a typhoon and a lot of stores were closed. Apparently the typhoon suddenly changed direction and didn’t hit Korea. It did rain a lot this week though. It is monsoon season right now so it rains a lot! But so far we haven’t had any flooding yet, which is nice. It so humid and hot though. It has been this way for the last few weeks since I have been here. We basically sweat all day and we are sticky. Kind of gross but we just kind of deal with it.
Chicken Feet! Yum!

Well, I can seriously eat ANYTHING now. This week was not super adventurous but we ate raw fish. It was cut very fine and was super long and stringy. Then we had a soup with a whole fish cooked in it. Eye balls and all. It wasn’t bad.
We went on a branch picnic last, last Saturday. It was soooo fun!

It was a really good week! We got 3 new investigators this week! We are doing the 30/30 program with them. 30 minutes English and 30 minutes Gospel. Sister Johnson, on our second visit with the 3 of them, decided to ask if they had any questions for us. One of them asked why there were so many churches and why were there so many different beliefs…..ohh. Such a good question that we can TOTALLY answer. So we went into the first lesson. The spirit guided us so well, it was seriously all the Lord. We talked about how when Christ came to this earth he established his gospel. We compared this to a puzzle. There are all of these different things that make up the gospel but when Christ left and his apostles were killed people took parts of his gospel but didn’t have everything. there is something missing in each church. Then we went into the Joseph Smith story. It was sooooo powerful. So good. It was intense and you could feel the spirit so strongly. We then bore our testimonies and then they all had to leave because they needed to go pick up kids and make dinner. Seriously, such a good lesson!
We made rootbeer and I was wearing a ridiculously awesome outfit. Grandma pants and grandma shirt combined. Wooh. Lookin good. haha.

This week I read 3 Nephi 19:25. So good. Continues with my Christ’s light study. Here is the scripture: “And it came to pass that Jesus blessed them as they did pray unto him; and his countenance did smile upon them, and the light of his countenance did shine upon them and behold they were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus; and behold the whiteness thereof did exceed all the whiteness, yea, even there could be nothing upon earth so white as the whiteness thereof.” Wow, if we could shine a light that bright, in reality people would actually be blinded, but if we could shine the light of Christ that bright people will be drawn to us. People who have even the smallest amount, which is everyone, then they can be drawn to. It is amazing the influence Christ had on people. Even though Christ is not on the earth now, we can definitely be representatives of him and put his light into our own hearts. After we put the light in our hearts we can share. Sister Gilbert always talked about giving out and sharing that light within you. Don’t be scared to shine or show it or give it! We are given the responsibility to do so. “How great is this work” !!! It is the best. I know I say it every week but I want everyone to know, that I LOVE MISSIONARY WORK! It is the most fulfilling thing ever. You don’t even have to serve a full time mission to do missionary work. There are so many different ways you can do it. Find those ways and do! The gospel is about doing! There is no such thing as idleness in the gospel. The work is hastening and we are here to help that work move forward. Go out and do!
I LOVE YOU ALL SOOOOO MUCH!
Love, Sister Orme
