We had some interesting things happen this week. We went on exchanges on Wednesday, and I went to Gyeongju again. It was so good. The sister I was serving with was very good at proselyting and is very bold, and we made a goal to really be as bold as we could as we went out to talk to people. We saw a huge amount of miracles that day. It was so fun! I love serving with other sisters that really are willing to buckle down and work. We found a lot of people that were prepared and willing to meet and learn more about the gospel. I guess it was good we found a lot of people that day, because the next morning we woke up to a huge storm outside. President Barrow called and told us that there was a big typhoon, and that we had to stay inside until they told us we could go out. We couldn't even go out to un-exchange and go back to our areas. I've had typhoons before on my mission, but this was the first time that they've made us stay inside the house for anything. It was boring. We did the studies, ate lunch, contacted people, and contacted more people. Of course, it was only until three that we had to stay in, but I've never felt so anxious to get outside. There was a lot of water though. In Pohang, the Elders showed us pictures and videos of a river running in front of the church. Crazy.
Things are still progressing in Pohang! We've been talking with our Elders and made a plan to start the flood (of progress, that is!). It has been cool to see how we have all been working harder and being more focused. While we weren't able to meet with a lot of people yet, we did find some more people and made good contact with a lot of them. The daughter of the family that we met with last week told us yesterday about a miracle that she saw. She said she has been thinking and praying about which friend to invite to meet with us, when a friend that she wasn't quite as close with came to her and told her about how she wishes she could find an English class with people that are of an older age. The daughter was shocked about how perfect the opportunity was, and invited her to come to English class and start meeting with us. While the friend has a lot of English interest, the daughter is really excited to help her grow in the gospel. She told us, "I made a goal for one of my friends to be baptized, and look what happened!" We are excited to see things starting to change and progress.
General Conference was wonderful. There was an investigator that came and watched close to an hour of it before she had to go, and it was good! Goodness, the gospel is the best. I felt the Spirit teaching me so much and showing me things that I have done well, can do better, and also things I need to start planning for in the future. One thing I felt very strongly was that while I will not be a full time missionary for too much longer, I will still be a missionary. The things I learned from this time will help me to continue to do the Lord's work for the rest of my life. Whether that is in my own home or outside of it. While I am sad to know that I will not be doing this work in Korea much longer, I have been reminded of all the tools that we have to push the work in others ways than what I can do now. I am excited to do that.
But thank goodness I'm not done yet!
I love you so much!
