11 And it came to pass that I did go forth and partake of the fruit thereof; and I beheld that it was most sweet, above all that I ever before tasted. Yea, and I beheld that the fruit thereof was white, to exceed all the whiteness that I had ever seen.
12 And as I partook of the fruit thereof it (as I am grateful, the fruit will) filled my soul with exceedingly great joy; wherefore, I began to be desirous that my family should partake of it also; for I knew that it was desirable above all other fruit.
There are many different kinds of fruits in this gospel of which we can partake of, but I have a special testimony that when we partake of the tree and pick the fruit of gratitude, our hearts are full unto the Lord. I have experienced many miracles from gratitude on my mission, and I know that when we continue in thanksgiving unto the Lord, He will always give us more.
Thursday night I had the opportunity to meet with president Shin and an investigator named 김병곤b. It was a special experience that I will hold on to for a long time. The spirit in the room was peaceful and observing president Shin teach was quite amazing. As I sat there in the chair aside from President, the thought that was running through my head was, "We desire his salvation." That is so true, we as missionaries are giving selfless service everyday to the Lord to bring His children the salvation they need to return back into His presence. 김병곤b has great potential and we are now starting to work with his two sons. He wasn't able to make it to church this week because of the holiday week-end, but he committed to us that he and his sons will attend this upcoming Sunday. We are going to be praying and asking the Lord for the Spirit to help him draw closer to baptism, and we are planning on giving him a baptismal date this next week.
