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!

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.

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.
End.
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

Life is Grand!

This week has been fantastic! I can’t tell you how much I love the MTC.

We have 33 new missionaries this week! And then 12 more come next week. 11 left this week for Korea :(. It is sad but i am happy for them. It is soooo great! Our branch is growing!

So, Butterfield, Watson, and I were teaching our investigator about the atonement this week and it went so well. We decided to focus more on the spirit and listening to it to see what we need to tell our investigator so she could feel the spirit. Wow, it was powerful. The spirit was so strong that I started crying really hard. I was giving the baptismal invite and could not give it without crying. The spirit confirmed to me that what I was saying was true and I am so excited to share this message to real investigators. The gospel is such a blessing. As I gave the baptismal invitation, I felt the power of our message and also the power of baptism. It is going to make so many people happy. Our teacher told me that the lesson was amazing and we did such a good job! She is not allowed to give us feedback at all. I am glad she was able to confirm that we were at least doing something right. The gospel is true!!!! I am so happy that we get to share to the people of Korea!

On Sunday we had the privilege of listening to President Lindahl. He is the District President. He made me so pumped and excited to be a missionary. We have so much power as we are called to be disciples of Christ. We have so much power as we use our faith to help others, heal others, and guide others to Christ. What an amazing calling to devote ourselves completely to the Lord. What a privilege. He had some missionaries have visions of angels. What the what?? What a confirmation. He also shared with me, personally, that the sisters had the power of faith. He said that he couldn’t say this over the pulpit. He said that when the Elders didn’t have enough faith to heal someone, the sisters would be sent to heal people and they would be healed completely whole because of their faith. He said sisters have so much faith and can produce a lot of spiritual power because of it. Wow, what an amazing story. What amazing missionaries he had! They know what’s up.

I recommend everyone listen to the devotional given by Elder Bednar about “Character of Christ”. It is amazing!!!!! Wow, he is just amazing. I could listen to him all day and forever and be happy. Of course the other apostles/presidents are awesome and wonderful as well. He is just on my mind a lot lately.

The reason he has been on my mind is because he gave us another visit on Tuesday!! So we have been able to listen to him live twice! Once for xmas, and this last Tuesday. For xmas he did a questionnaire and he did the same on tuesday. He wanted to answer the other questions as well. So the thoughts are jumbled. Some great points from the devotional were:
-Faith and belief are two different things. Faith is active, belief is passive.
-Fear is the absence of action.
-Every missionary deserves a good companion.
-Heavenly Father gives us hard things because he trusts us enough to get out of them, he is preparing us for the eternities.
-The priesthood is not male. Men were just given the responsibility.
-The gift of tongues is a spiritual gift. You will only receive a spiritual gift if God trusts you to use it for others, you will never receive it if you want it so you can have it, it will come through you as you bless others.

He said that if others pray for you to have the gift of tongues we will receive it. I know you all pray for Creed and I already but if you could pray for us to have the gift of tongues that would be wonderful. As we receive this gift we can speak to others in a way that will help them to receive the gospel. You are all the best!!!

I love you all tons!! I hope you enjoyed the pics!

Love, Orme Chamay
