The last week in Shinjeong was so good. We've seen a lot of miracles. It was so good to be with the members and investigators too this week. I will miss them so much. I am still always surprised at how incredible these people are. Luckily, we are still in the same Stake, so I will be able to see them again in Stake Conference in a couple weeks.
We met with "PYJ" again this week! We went to a Sushi restaurant, and talked with her for a while. While she isn't able to meet consistently again yet, she still wants to learn and has been praying a little. It was good to see her! Hopefully we'll be able to get together again soon.
We also met again with "A", the Peruvian woman. She is progressing so well! She read the Restoration pamphlet and told us, "This is really good, but as I was reading it I was wondering how I can find the truth. How do I do it?" GOOD QUESTION. It was a good discussion, and she invited us to come to her house for dinner on Sunday. Her Peruvian food was DIVINE. I will miss her!
One of the biggest miracles of this week was with a woman that we had found a couple of weeks ago. We met her on the street, and she told us that she knew missionaries when she was in school. She was willing to meet, but told us that her faith was weak and that she didn't know a lot about God. We finally met with her on Saturday, and it was INCREDIBLE. Her name is "KJO". We sat down and she immediately began telling us about her religious background and what she wants to learn and change in her life. I seriously thought she was a church woman that was trying to trick us for a little bit because she was so golden. But she told us about why she never attended church before, and had a lot of concerns and questions, specifically about why God would send trials and put hard things in our life. As we talked and used scriptures to try to help her, she started to cry. She said she was scared before, but wanted to change her life and really know that God loves her. It was a really long lesson (about three hours...oops.), but she told us she knew that we weren't lying and that she was willing to do what it takes to change. We talked a little about baptism too, and she understood well. It was INCREDIBLE. Even though I am being transferred (of course) I am so grateful I was able to meet her and have that experience.
I am being transferred to Pohang. It is in the same Zone, and I will be serving with Sister Rix. I did her first exchange when I was a Sister Training Leader in Jinju/Sacheon. We've done a couple exchanges since then too, so it is really interesting to actually be serving together now! She is awesome. I've heard that Pohang has really good members, and they've had a couple baptisms lately that have been referrals from members. They have been having a lot of other hard things going on lately though, so we'll be working hard and trying to find new investigators. I am excited!
Goodness I love missionary work.
I love you!
