안녕하세요! (Good morning!)
This has been a good week! We got two new investigators and it was a miracle! While going home last week, my companion started a conversation with someone on the bus who was interested because we said we were missionaries and she thought missionaries were only old. So we got her phone number and we were able to meet with her this week. When we met her, she brought her friend too who just so happened to be someone that works at the same service center where we go every week! We didn't really try to teach her before because she had told us about the other church she attends and normally that turns into Bible bashing but when we met with them, we had an awesome discussion about how they want to find the true church. So we asked if we could meet again and tell them about our church!

We have also 전도ed (proselyted) at the river path almost every day this week, and a lady stopped us and said she wanted to give us a present because she'd seen us talking with other people on the path! Dish scrubbers that she made herself! We tried to give her a Book of Mormon, but she wouldn't take it. But it showed me that as we're trying our hardest to talk to people, other people will notice, too.

My last thought is something my companion said that really stuck out to me this week. She asked why the Lord wants us to seek instead of strive. That was something she thought a lot about and came to the conclusion that it's like our parents. Our parents can definitely ask us to do the dishes or clean or something and we can strive to be obedient. But ideally, we will become aware enough that we will no longer need to be asked to clean. We will seek to do things before because we know it's what we should do.
사랑해요! (I love you!)
