It's raining!

It's raining, do you know what that means? Summer is finally over! Goodbye hideous tan lines, sweaty nastiness, dehydration, and huge spiders! Ah, this weather could not have comes sooner.

This week has been really interesting, I went on an exchange with 연수 sisters and it was quite the learning experience. Sister 곽남희 is from our mission area and she has been out for little over a year! Turns out that we will be ending our missions at the same time! Party! Anyways, when we were together, we talked a lot about finding new investigators and exercising more faith. Sometimes, we often pray that we have more faith to do things, but after a conversation with President I have learned that if we want more faith...we have to do something. So that is what Sister 곽남희 and I did. We started our street contacting with a prayer and continued to pray and ask for guidance we navigated the city. I am not really sure what came of our street contacting, but it was more enjoyable as we recognized promptings of the spirit. I love being an STL because it gives me a chance to learn from all the sister missionaries in the area! 

Another miracle that has happened this week is that we had a good English class in Mansu. Now, I know that shouldn't be a miracle...but it is. When I got here, English class was terrible. I mean, I would have dodged it if I was a Korean trying to learn English. So, Sis. Gapinski and I talked with the elders and revamped our approach. It was a success!!! People had lots of fun, spiritually uplifted, and wanting to come to the next class.

Other than that, Sis. Gapinski and I are trying our best to find new investigators. The ones that we are currently teaching are not progressing, which is hard because we know how much the gospel will bless their families. That being said, we are optimistic that the power of the Book of Mormon will help them see the truth of this message. I have also learned that street contacting is super hard when you are not white. Bright side...people think I am Korean. HAHA
