Week 24- Mission calls, Grandpa, and Cute little Davis

Hello Dearest Family and Friends!
First off, my english is getting worse. So please forgive any mistakes. I have noticed in my journal and in my letters that I am sometimes not good at english anymore. I am trying to keep it up but for some reason it is going down hill without me. ^^
This week was amazing! There are a lot of miracles happening in Miryang right now. We, the missionaries, feel that the Lord is preparing this branch to become a ward! We have so many investigators popping up everywhere. Old records/old investigators are wanting to meet with us. We are searching and looking for less actives. We have been updating their records. There are some that want to meet! We are trying our hardest to get things going and the Lord is providing the rest. I cannot write all of the miracles but there were about 3-4 in the space of two hours on saturday. The rest of the week was basically the same but throughout the days. We are being blessed. I cannot thank the Lord enough for what He is doing for Miryang.
Found this beautiful shirt at a thriftshop. It has people on it. I love it but I don’t wear it during missionary work.

Well, this week especially on the 2nd and 3rd of August a year ago a lot things happened for our family. I was reminiscing on these events. August 2nd was mine and Creed’s year mark of receiving our mission calls. It was fun because I got to read what I thought that whole weekend. Then August 3rd we opened it at 1 am, then mom was packing and flying to Seattle, Grandpa passed away at 3pm and little Davis was born at 6pm . Wow, it was an amazing weekend full of every single emotion possible. ^^  I am grateful for being a missionary and being called to where the Lord needs me. I am grateful for the wonderful legacy that my grandparents have passed down. Especially since Grandpa Dance was our last living grandparent, I was reflecting a lot on all 4 of our grandparents. I CANNOT wait to meet Grandma Helen and Grandpa Jesse and get to know them more, and I am excited for our reunion with Grandma Jean and Grandpa David. I am grateful to them because they raised the most amazing and fantastic parents in the whole wide world!!!!!!!! Then little Davis, our nephew, joined the Orme family. Wow, I cannot believe he is now 1 years old! Where does the time go????? HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVIS!!! I am sad that he won’t really know who we are when Creedy and I get back. Don’t worry we will warm him up to his favorite aunt and uncle soon enough! ^^ I bore my testimony on fast sunday because I am grateful for the great plan of salvation that allows our families to live forever. I could not imagine life without my family. I am so grateful that I am able to share this happy message to others. I love you all soooooo much! Thank you so much for all that you do and for all of your support!
 Today we went in a cable car! It was sooo fun!

We had such a fun pday! So we went into a cable car to go on to a huge mountain and we went hiking everywhere. We didn’t expect that! It was so cloudy and misty that our hair got completely wet. We also went to some rocks that have ice all over it in the middle of the summer. It starts in march and ends near the end of summer but unfortunately because of the rain there was no ice at all. :/ but i want to go with our family. such a fun adventure!

It has been raining so much lately but it is soooooo hot! We sweat all day long even though it is raining. It is an adventure trying to make sure we have an outfit that will not show off our sweat too much. ^^ Is that too much information? Sorry. But welcome to humid and hot korea. ^^ Love it! You know, I love Korea. The people are just so wonderful and amazing here. Grandparents totally rule the world here. Sometimes they decide that their moter chairs are cars! Sometimes those things can go super fast! Who knew? I didn’t until I came to Korea. Sometimes you see people careening down the hill and around corners at full speed. So funny. I love it!
Beautiful part of Miryang

By the way. We got 2 new pamphlets and they are just for the Korea and Japan missions. We are testing them out to see how effective they are. We have used them once or twice so far and they went really well. One is about the missionaries and the other is about God.  I have to show you who is on it. You would never believe it. I will send pictures next week. When I opened the pamphlets I was sooooo surprised and told everyone who it was. So fun. It is someone that we all kind of grew up with. We all know this person. Derek knows him especially well. 🙂 well, i won’t tell until next week.
By the way there is a Less active family that the whole branch is working on the come back to church. Because of some things that have happened they struggle with coming to church but they love everything about the gospel and love all of the church members but they feel unworthy to come to church because of what happened. We are all in their lives. One of their sons is going to Utah for school. Perfect. And their daughter wants to go to BYU provo. Perfect as well. We know that the gospel is blessing their life and they are getting their. We have full faith they will. I want everyone to know that you are always worth the saviors atoning sacrifice. The sacrament has cleanising power. The atonement has cleansing power that can heal our souls. It is never too late to come back into the fold. You can always come back. Heavenly Father and the Savior are always waiting with their arms out stretched for you to come to them. Be willing toput out your hand to! You will be blessed more than you know as you do so.
I love being a missionary! I LOVE YOU ALL TONS!!!! Have a great week!
Love, Sister Orme

I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!!!! Week 7<–WHAT???

I seriously LOVE being a missionary. It can be soo hard but it is so rewarding at the same time. I have come to realize that we must not focus on everything at once, that is where you get too overwhelmed. I have learned to look at things little by little. Sometimes you want to baptize the whole world but you can only do that as you save one soul at a time. That is how Jesus Christ works. He saves a soul one by one. Yesterday was a momentous occasion for 울산 (Ulsan). We had TWO fantastic people take steps into the waters of baptism. One was our investigator 오지윤 (Ohjeeyoon) and the Elders investigator 백송민 (Peksongmeen) He is 17 or 18! Wow, the craziest but most amazing day of our life! The spirit was bursting at this baptism. I am soooooo happy! I still can’t believe it either. I can’t believe that they are baptized. It is amazing! I am sending pictures! This week was definietly crazy but it all worked out! Heavenly Father has been blessing us sooooooooooooooooo much!!!

So, I am answering mom’s questions and I thought everyone would want to know.
Korea is a very beautiful place but can also be dirty. Which is fine. I LOVE KOREA! the streets, the shops and places remind me of russia. Old grandmas sell food on the streets and there are a lot of street markets.
I will conquer the world!

Everytime we pass koreans they always say: SOOO BEAUTIFUL! hahah in korean of course. it is hilarious and we love it. I am going to miss it so much when I leave korea. I am going to miss the grandmas calling us beautiful and the korean people freaking out when they see us all the time. haha.
There are a not a lot of foreigners here but when there are we try to avoid them. hahaha. for some reason they weird us out. most of time we have had really bad feelings when we are with them so we try to avoid them because they are always scary….well not all the time but sometimes we wouldn’t have feelings around them. but we say hi to them and that is that, they are not super interested in us. one time a girl and a guy came up to us and we talked to them for two seconds. the boy seemed interested in what we were talking about but once the girl found out we were missionaries she said bye. haha.
Me and my group that left from the MTC. We met at training meeting.

koreans like hello kitty and cute things. i love it! hahah sometimes you will see men wearing and using really girly things but it is completely normal here. i love it! hahah
i have not felt anyones enmity to japan or of any place. the young koreans actually really like the japanese style. a lot of chinese and japanese people come here.
Jordan is doing great! he and his mom didn’t progress super well this week but we will bring them back on track.
We walk, ride buses or take the occasional taxi to go places. I love it!!! you get to see the city and you get to meet people. i am so grateful we don’t ride bikes or have a car so we can be able to contact people.

I cannot stay away from the night shades because in every single meal basically the only thing that doesn’t have it, is a seaweed salad, the rice or sometimes they have cabbage sald. Heavenly Father has been blessing me with staying healthy from it. When we are at home we eat very well and keep away from it. It is very rude to not eat the food they give you so I eat it. I have been totally fine! ^^ I get tired but we are so busy that only by the end of the day does it really help me. I pray all the time to the Lord about it. I am praying for Creed too. Pray for it creed!
Yes, the competition is really bad. Kids stay in school all day and waaaay late into the night. sometimes they dn’t get home until 11:30 or 12 at night. apparantly the suicide rate is really high here becuase there is so much competition. i hope it gets better. It is because korea is soooo small but so many people live here. We are normally feeding ourselves. But sometimes we will have a 식사 (Shiksa-Food appointment) with members. It is always awesome! We have been fed a lot which is actually surprising cause normally they don’t feed you as much. But they always feed us tons of food and it is hard becuase you want to please them so you have to eat a ton. we basically don’t eat at all besides at that time. I am happy they are not too frequent.
I am soooooo happy for Brian! Please tell him that I am so happy for him. I know his life is going to be very blessed as he pursues the gospel. There is nothing that is better or more perfect. Heavenly Father loves him and I love him too. We are so blessed to have him in our lives. I am so happy that he is taking these steps. These are the most important but I know as he does so his life will be 10 times better. It will bless his life forever. You are the best St. Brian!!!!!!
I am sooo excited for JONNY!!!! Congratulations on your mission call!!! That is awesome!! I will write you! ^^
Look who I found? this is going to be on a members fridge. Cousin Jonny!

It is completely safe to send stuff! No problems like Creed. Sorry Creed!
Ok, so everyone is asking about my birthday. It was really great!!! So far we have been fed 3 cakes. Hahaha and people keep wanting to do things for me. It kind of felt like any other day but it was still fun! Mom, thank you for the necklace and the bracelet!!! I love them both. I have been wearing them to! Love you!! So all in all it was great!
I love love love missionary work. It is seriously the most greatest thing ever!!! Wow, i love it a lot. I am so happy and I am doing super well. It has not been hard at all for me to adjust to missionary life. Heavenly Father is really blessing me and my companion. We feel his love and blessings everyday. It is all about obedience, reading your scriptures, praying, going to church, and keeping the commandments. Through those things Heavenly Father blesses us immenseley.
LOVE YOU ALLLLL!!!!!

Hello From Korea

Hello Everyone!!

I just got to say I love Korea! It is seriously the greatest thing! I am so happy to be here. I am sorry but I don’t have much time to write. Today was super busy. I am actually allowed to email for 2 hours! But we couldn’t today.

So, our first week has been amazing! We are SOOOOO BUSY! We have so many investigators which is awesome. We are also planning on having 6 baptisms this transfer! I will let you know how it goes. Next week I promise I will write more about exactly what I did for these past few days.

I am in Ulsan right now (울산) and my trainer is Sister Benbrook. We are both working hard and loving it here. I am so happy to be a missionary. It is the greatest!

Ulsan, S Korea
I am sooo sorry but I really have to go. I took too much time reading all of the emails and I have to email my branch president.

I will just say this…. Sister Benbrook and I are making things happen and we are working hard. I love missionary work and could not imagine myself anywhere else. I am so happy. I love the people already. Everyone tells me I am so beautiful and that I speak amazing Korean (even when I say hello hahahah). I am so happy that we had so much practice with our Korean in the MTC. It has really helped with everything. A lot of people are speaking to us, and you were all right, because of my hair and because we are both Americans. It opens doors. Heavenly Father has also blessed us with being able to contact many people and to have sooooooo many investigators. We have no time for anything but them.

Today we had a ton of fun! We went with an investigator to a beautiful beach and ate delicious food. It is sooo healthy here. I love it! It makes me feel soooo good! We also had many adventures today. Next week I will be better and write everything that has happened. I have to go. LOVE YOU ALL!!!

Love, Orme 자매
