Hello Family and Friends!!
This week has been amazing!! We have 7 new investigators and 4 new Potential investigators that will become investigators. I am not mentioning this to brag but to show you all what miracles we have been having this week. It has been absolutely crazy and we are so busy! We had to break up weekly planning because we had no time and we ran around sweaty and hot trying to make it on time for everything. it was nuts! but i love this work!
Sister Yokum is unfortunately super sick though! She has been such a trooper. We went to the hospital today and she has severe tonsilytis! Her throat is super swollen and she couldn’t really breath or swallow. kind of really scary! So we woke up and left for the hospital. we got there at around 6:30 she had an IV and an injection. then we had to go to an ENT hospital. She got 2 shots there and a ton of medicine! Korean hospitals are super quick, clean and efficient. She will get better in no time. she even feels better now, which is good.
I love Sister Yokum a lot and we have fun while everything around us goes crazy! But it all works out.
Heavenly Father has been blessing us sooo much this week! We are so grateful for how he has helped us to find these people and to actually have time to meet them. Trust me, THE LORD IS ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU STRIVE TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE. I cannot talk about it enough about how much Heavenly Father loves us all. He wants us all to go back to him and live with him again. Never be discouraged when things don’t work out or someone rejects the gospel. It is your efforts that really are what the Lord is looking for. Ask him for guidance and help and he will do it in mysterious ways!
Love the Lord and trust in the Lord.
I love you all! You are all the best!!!!!!!
Love, Sister Orme

Hello Family and Friends!
So, I have not left Shinjeong (신정)! Sister Benbrook was transferred to Masan (마산). She is follow up training one of the Korean sisters that left with me and I am with Sister Benbrook’s MTC companion! Her name is Sister Yokum. She is 23 and from San Diego! She is great! Today is our first day together. I will send pictures next week of her and I. I will miss Sister Benbrook but I know that the Lord wants Sister Yokum to be with me now. I am excited to see what happens!
This week has been absolutely amazing! We have had a week full of miracles!
One of our investigator’s mom came home while we were about to leave. She asked us to stay and sit with her. At first we were a little nervous because we thought she was going to preach to us or something. But then we had the most amazing conversation in the whole world!! She thanked us over and over again for teaching her daughter. She wants her daughter to learn about Christ. She said we have the light of Christ in us and she can see it! This is the first time anyone has ever said that to us before! She recognized us as servants of the LORD!!!!! She spoke of Christ and bore her testimony of him and she got teary eyed about it. She is just amazing! We taught the whole restoration to her and she kept nodding her head during it. We spoke with power and the spirit. I shared the first vision and the spirit was so strong in the room. It was enveloping our whole being. I have never felt the spirit so strong during a lesson before. It was wonderful. She gave us her phone number and we invited her to church next Sunday and she totally wants to come. She said to just call her about it. We are hoping to teach her too. She said we can meet and I am soooo excited! She is just amazing! I can’t believe it. We wanted to ask her if she would get baptized but we felt like we should wait a little bit. We will see what happens! We are so happy and so excited!
What is also amazing is that our investigator’s mom was not the only person this week that recognized us as servants of the Lord. We were on the bus and this women started talking to us. She said we were so beautiful and had a light around us. The light of Christ was in our eyes. She thanked us for what we were doing and was grateful for what we were doing for the people of Korea. It was amazing to see that other people noticed our light. We gave her a pamphlet, unfortunately we didn’t get her number but she was totally reading the pamphlet about the restoration. I pray that woman calls us soon!!!! We met her on Saturday so hopefully something will happen in the next few days! I’m praying so hard it will happen.
This last week our district went Book of Mormon proselyting (전도). Sister Benbrook and I met this super amazing lady! She was soooo interested in our message and the Book of Mormon. We taught her the first lesson and gave her a BofM. She was so surprised that it was in Korean! She had heard of our church and of the BofM and was always curious about it. She is sooo golden. She is super solid in Christ as well. We testified of Christ to her and she agreed with everything. She said she has been waiting for something more and is trying the best she can to be a follower of Christ. We testified to her that this is what she needs and this will answer all of her questions and more. What is even more amazing is that she doesn’t live here. She is in another town called Heundae. I am not sure how to spell it in Korean or English, but we gave her number to those sisters there and she wants to meet to learn more. As she walked away from us she was reading the BofM. We talked to her for sooooo long! It was amazing.
The Busan Mission is seriously seeing miracles EVERYWHERE!!!! The mission is growing. We believe it is because our mission is doing a 49 day fast and it is working miracles! Our mission president might just extend it because it is helping so much! We started seeing the miracles when it started. It is so amazing to see how many miracles can occur when the mission strives to grow to together with one purpose in mind. It is amazing to see what prayer, fasting, diligence, reading, and serving do. It creates miracles!!!!!
Miracles are everywhere! They can be small or big but regardless they are a miracle. I invite you all to look for the miracles of everyday, regardless of what it is. You will start to see what Heavenly Father is blessing you with. Heavenly Father is the best!!!!!!
I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY! I could not imagine being anywhere else. This gospel is the true gospel. There is no other way but through Christ. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, our friend, and our Brother. He has done everything for us and we should do the same in the return.
The work is hastening. We can FEEL it. I feel it everyday! The Lord’s work is hastening and so is Satan. Do not let Satan become a part of your life. Choose Christ! He is the way and the truth. We can overcome all things through him. We can conquer all! Remember Helaman 5:12. I shared this last week, but I invite you all to apply this principle. Christ. He is our Redeemer and our Rock.
I LOVE YOU ALL TONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
