This week we had a combined mission conference with the Seoul Mission at our pretty Yeoungdeungpo building where we got to hear from Elder Ringwood and Elder Maynes. To prepare we did A LOT of cleaning and reorganizing so everything looked up to par for everybody. Although parts of the church, like the bathrooms and kitchen, were a bit sketchy looking at the beginning, we made them all spic and span by the end! It’s interesting how as you clean out a little at a time it’s hard to see the difference you are making, but when you take a step back and see the end result, you realize how much of a change there is and how clean things have become. I guess that’s how life is sometimes. You may not realize the difference you are making, but when you have an opportunity to take a step back, you can realize that you really have made a change; both in yourself, in others, and in the world! It’s awesome!
The conference with Elder Ringwood and Elder Maynes was really inspiring and relevant to us as missionaries. They talked a lot about goals, faith, planning, and prayer. Without doing those four things effectively it is harder to fulfill our purpose as missionaries.
In other news, this week we also went to the temple! I love the temple with all my heart. When I truly prepare and go to the temple seeking inspiration and direction, I can always find it. Sometimes, it’s not always a specific answer like I’m expecting, but just an overwhelming feeling of peace that as long as I keep on seeking to do good and choose the right path, things will work out how they are supposed to be. It’s a peaceful reassuring hope that allows me to keep pressing forward unwearyingly.
I love serving as a missionary with all my heart!
