This was a pretty fun week. Due to the lack of spending time in our own area, we were not able to do much missionary work in our own area this week. We went to the 신촌 area 3 days in a row this week! We met with one of the young men in our ward, who, thanks to his failing of an important test, has decided to serve a mission, and is preparing super fast! He actually had his bishop interview yesterday! We met with him and helped him prepare to send his papers in. They're actually papers in Korea. And, it was pretty much Elder Kang helping him prepare, because Korea is not America in multiple ways, including the stuff they have to do for missionary papers. ㅋㅋ
Then, it was Temple P-day! We went to 신촌, where the temple is! We spent P-day with the Elders from 원당! My old area of five transfers! We didn't really know each other before, but because they are both in the area that I closed back in the day, we became instant friends! Plus, 정우림e is one of the Elders that went to Costco with Elder Jarrett and I way back when I was a greenie! How crazy is that!
Then, it was Zone Training! We went to 신촌, where the zone meeting always is! The whole purpose of it all was to get us pumped up for Christmas. By the way, if you haven't checked out #lighttheworld yet, now is the time to do that! This Christmas season is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to become like the Savior!
Then, it was Language Pass-off! We went to 신촌, where the AP's serve. That was fun. Not much else to say about that.
It has been a really awesome week. I have one little thought I want to share about. Every Sunday, we have the wonderful opportunity to take the sacrament. As a missionary, I love feeling the Spirit that is in the chapel during the sacrament. I had the opportunity to pass the sacrament this last Sunday, and seeing the members take the sacrament with a sincere heart brought so much joy and gladness to my soul. It is truly a wonderful thing to see other people continuously taking action to reach salvation. I know that God loves all of His children and that He has done and will continue to do everything for us, just as any parent would for their children.
