안녕하세요 여러분!!

안녕하세요 여러분!! (Hi everyone!!)

Our last 강남 (Gangnam) only Sacrament Meeting.
Next week is stake conference and then we become the Gangnam 1st Ward (combined with Seocho).

This week has been good! We were able to meet with Julia, Jenny, and Tina! Julia and Jenny are mostly English interest, but when we met with them, they had both practiced English and read the pamphlet we asked them to. They'd even started to underline and study it! We were actually able to have a really good discussion about the Fall which is usually one of the hardest things to teach.

Zone Conference
We also had zone conference which was super good and just gets me more pumped to do missionary work again! Our mission president is just the best and Sister Turner's nachos are great. And we finally met with Tina again after 6ish weeks! She still isn't able to come to church because she has a work meeting in the middle so we're praying that that'll change because she really wants to learn! We watching the Restoration movie with her since it had been so long and it was a good review. Joseph Smith really was a prophet and restored Christ's church again!

Other than that, we just did a whole lot of 전도 (proselyting)!

The church is true! 사랑해요! (I love you!)

기적들!! (Miracles!!)

This week we saw so many miracles! The Lord is preparing people in Gangnam! We were able to teach our investigator 진유림 (JinYooRim) and we got to talk a lot about God and prayer. She was able to remember an experience with prayer when she was little! God really does answer our prayers no matter our age.

We also got 4 new investigators last week!!!! While on exchanges, we got a call from the Elders that someone had called off the banner at the church and wanted to learn English right then. A lot of miracles had combined into us being at the subway station where we were so that we were able to get the the church in 15 minutes instead of the normal 45 minutes from our house. During those 15 minutes, she also invited her friend! So we were able to introduce the 30/30 program and set up 2 appointments!!

At the exact same time in 노량진(Noryangjin), Sister Hawkins got to teach someone that the STL's had found that actually lives in Gangnam so they simultaneously referred her over to us and her boyfriend came too! He was super interested in the Book of Mormon so we'll get to introduce that this week to them!

Our last miracle of the week was Tina! The Elders originally started teaching Tina last transfer, referred her over to us, we met her a couple of times, and she stopped answering. We were super disappointed because she had so much real intent and desire to know. On Saturday though, the Elders got a call from her that she had lost her phone and all her contacts and had somehow found the Elders phone number written down somewhere. So the Elders called us and we are now going to start meeting with her again!

It's been a great week and I know it's the Lord's work, not ours!

Have a great week! 사랑해요!
