It was so fun talking to all of you! Mother’s day is definitely one of the funnest days of the year as a missionary!
This week we did a couple of things–ate 보신탕(bo-shin-tang), I’ll just let you look up what that is. It was expensive, but it was so delicious!
We also had transfer calls! My companion Sister N is going to her greenie area in 인천 and I’m staying in 영등포 and going to train! Yah! I’ll figure out Wednesday this week who my new companion will be so I’ll let you know next week! I’m really excited!
One of the miracles we saw this week happened from attending a soccer game! Our ward and another ward usually meet Saturday mornings and play a game or two at a junior high field. Last week the sisters from the other ward had met a potential investigator there so they invited us to come this week to meet her. She’s so great! She’s a Korean, but lived in Africa for 3 years so she’s really good at English. She teaches English at the junior high and is really big into service and adventure. She thought that what we were voluntarily doing as missionaries here in Korea was amazing. We talked a little with her and then she invited us to share with her class for 10 minutes what we were doing here and why. What!?
It was a crazy cool opportunity and the students were genuinely interested. Lots of the students had seen missionaries on the street before but felt intimidated or shy so had never talked to them. It was fun explaining what we were doing here and why. The teacher texted us later that day and said that she and her class were really inspired by what we had said and by what we are doing! It was such a neat opportunity! Especially since, we had been praying and fasting for a new person to teach for a long time and this was an answer to our prayers! God is the best!
I’m excited to see what miracles this next week brings!
