After we got all of our luggage and stuff, I met my mission president, President Shin and his wife, Sister Shin. They are amazing. They are so sweet, and I am so excited to be able to get to know them better over the next 2 years.
see it. It's hard to explain, but I will send you some pics of everything.
We have one investigator right now. His name is Kim teh Hong. He is like 46 years old and is a very sweet Korean guy, very humble and happy. We teach him English and then when we are done, we share a message of the gospel. He is really interested. The spirit is so strong. It really makes me happy when I can see the light in his eyes. I try my best to
see everyone how the Savior sees them. We are continuing to work with him, and I pray that he will continue to progress. My trainer is very good at Korean. He has been serving for a little over a year, so he teaches most of the lesson, but I try my best to participate in all that I can. He is awesome and teaches me a lot.
I have been on my knees a lot this last week asking the Lord to comfort me and to give me strength through these hard times. This work is not easy. It is very difficult and frustrating, but I know that it is the Lord's work. I know that this next 6 to 12 months are going to shape me into the person I will be for the rest of my life. These next few months are going to be very difficult, but I know that the Lord is here with me every step of the way.
On Sunday, I had to give a talk in church in front of everyone. There are like 250 members in my ward. I had to give my "insaw marrsim," which is like introducing myself. It was so crazy. Everyone was like staring at me. I was praying so hard that my Korean would be good and that they could understand it. My trainer said I did really well. I felt good about it. I talked for like 4 minutes all in Korean. It was amazing. The members here in Korea are very different than Utah. They are kinda intense haha. You have to be on your top game and they expect a lot from you. It is really good that it is like that though.
Sorry I'm all over the place. There is just so much that has happened. I hope you can understand. I have never had a week like this in my life, so packed full of things and stress and being clueless about everything. Also, sorry about my punctuation and things. The
computuer is broken a little bit, and we couldn't go to the library where it is a little nicer because I don't have my foreigner card yet. I will get that in like 3 weeks. I am at a Samsung store. (Note: Punctuation was fixed upon receiving this e-mail for easier reading.)
After Sacrament meeting, I went on a little split with Elder Alan because him and his comp had two investigators and his other comp went with mine and their other investigator. We taught this investigator how to pray. We taught him the whole first lesson. It was so cool. The spirit was so strong. I said the whole first vision in Korean, and I made a really good connection with him. After our lesson was over, he saw a picture of the First Vision and said he could remember it just like he saw in the picture. I know that was the Spirit testifying to
