GSY brought her boyfriend to meet with us! THEY ARE MEANT TO BE. Seriously. They are so cute. They even both have braces. I think they think we are half- starved. slaving missionaries, because they always buy us a ton of food and keep saying things like "Just so skinny...so skinny." Anyway, it was such a good lesson. We shared the new Hallelujah video (which is not nearly as good with Korean dubbing) and talked about it. They really liked it and we talked about some Bible and Book of Mormon scriptures that relate to the Resurrection after that. The boyfriend seemed really impressed with the church. YES. PLEASE be sealed in the temple. GSY already told us she's inviting us to her wedding, so we have BIG plans for them... :)
KML is doing pretty well too! She just needs to ACT. She is sliding back into not really reading her scriptures or praying so we have to get her back on that.
Okay, pretty much the highlight of the week. The member that we found a while ago on that rainy day asked us to come and watch her son's orchestra performance (who happened to be in the Jinju Youth Orchestra) with her. Yes. You know. IT WAS THE BOMB. Those Korean kids are ridiculously good. It was awesome. Even before we went to the performance we went with her, her daughter, and a friend out for dinner. We talked with her a lot, and really strengthened our relationship with her. It was good. Then we went to the performance. Yup. Beethoven's Symphony no. 3. It was perfect. Sad part: we did have to leave during the intermission to get home on time and missed some Mozart (darn it) but it was still the best. I feel like throughout missionary work we have healing times that we need to keep sane, like General Conference and other big meetings, and this was a really good one. Of course, the best part was really developing a good relationship with the member. We are definitely going to meet with her more. She is great!
We had a girl swear at us and tell us to go away yesterday while we were proselyting. Sister Lee said it was pretty bad, but I was just grateful I am a foreigner and didn't understand. American perks. #미국사람 ;)
It seems like we are really developing a good relationship with the members. They have always liked the missionaries, but they are helping and working with us more than before. It is a lot of fun! Just when we were at church yesterday three different members invited us to their houses for a meal. I love Korea. These members are really the nicest.
This week leading up to Easter Sunday, our Mission President had us study the Savior's experience from the night of Passover to His resurrection on Sunday morning. It has been super good (as I am sure Easter was for all of you). As I read, prayed, and thought, I had two main feelings. The first of course was gratitude. Jesus Christ did everything for me. My second feeling was- I just want to be like my Elder Brother. Every day, that is one of the things that just makes me happy. I have a picture of Christ next to my desk, and every time I kneel and pray I look up at Him. Every time it bursts the seams of my heart a little bit. I love Him. And during our lives-my whole life, I can work and learn to become more like Him. That is the thing that gives me the most hope. Jesus is my favorite. :)
Ahh, pretty short one. It's been a good week, though!
I love you!!!
