Hello Dearest Family and Friends-
Well, sorry I emailed late but we didn’t have time yesterday because we had alot of meetings for transfers. Sister Johnson and I got a call on thursday about the happenings for transfers. President Barrow called us. Sister Johnson is going to Tongyong, which is still in my zone! So super fun! I will still be able to see her. She only has two more transfers left! Wah! President Barrow also extended another calling to me. I am going to be a TRAINER! He asked if I would accept it, of course I said yes, but in my mind I was saying “Wow! No! Not ready!”. I am deeply humbled and feel very privileged to accept this calling to train a brand new missionary. I am nervous because I am still really young in the mission and I don’t understand all of what people say still. Actually quite a good amount if they speak in a heavy accent. Which, because it is country, almost everyone does! So, I will be staying here in Miryang for at least two more transfers. Tomorrow we meet other new missionaries and thursday we find out who our new companion is. I feel very inadequate because I am still so young in the mission but I know that the Lord trusts me, otherwise he would not have called me to be a trainer. Anywho, we have been very busy cleaning and doing things for my trainee and getting Sister Johnson taken care of to move to Tongyong. I have decided that since the Lord trusts me, I don’t have to worry one bit. I decided I was not going to be scared and ever since I chose to not fear, I haven’t feared. The Lord is always ever mindful of us and knows who we are and what we are capable of. Even when we don’t think so. Trust in the Lord! He is always there for you! So, next week I will tell you this exciting news of what happens this week. My mind is still blown but I am slowly sinking everything in. ^^
I always say it, but I can never stop saying it. I LOVE MISSIONARY WORK! Miryang is booming with miracles and we have really good investigators who are willing and ready to listen, and follow the Lord. Of, course they have struggles but they are working on it. I feel like my new little, cute trainee will bring a lot of good things to Miryang. I know it! This last week we had 14 lessons and even 3 appointments were canceled! It is amazing what the Lord is helping us accomplish! I am constantly grateful for the Lord and how he helps us.
By the way, because there are so many Elders coming in, many people are white wash training! It is amazing. Sadly, 9 sisters left and there are only 6 coming in. I am excited for Sister Morrison to come in. I might not be able to train her group though, but maybe. Not sure. Maybe follow up train. We will see. 2 out of the 9 Sisters that left were my trainer and my follow up trainer, Sister Benbrook and Sister Yokum. 😦 I am very sad to see them go but now they are off to another mission. By the end of this year all of my companions will have left except for my trainee. It is sad. But all is good because I will get to see them again! ^^
Well, the Lord is the greatest and I love serving him. Have a great week this week and help hasten the Lord’s work by sharing the gospel to a friend! I LOVE YOU ALL!
Love, Sister Orme

1. Our awesome investigator! JonMinJeh. She met with the missionaries 4 years ago and she was an old record. We called her and just a month before she had come back from Seoul because she finished university. It was a blessing to find her. She is so ready and willing but needs to keep working on getting there. She is so close! ^^ I love her dearly and she has a great desire to change and grow.
