To be honest, I'm not even sure what to write this week. In the words of Sister Park "lots of happen was going on."
This was her last week :( And my new companion is a girl I knew in the MTC who is AMAZING! Her name is Sister Kim Hayun. We meet sooo many people this week and had sooo many goodbye parties for Sister Park. It was tons of fun. But there's just one story I really want to share.
We were walking to dinner after visiting our favorite little person, HwanHee. There's a small art gallery we walk by every day but on this day we stopped. We were looking at the pictures through the window when we noticed someone was inside. We waved at her and motioned for her to maybe opened the door. She stood and with shaking hands unlocked the door. She's young, maybe about 30 or 40, but seemed to be very weak.
We told her how beautiful her paintings were and starting asking about what made her want to start painting and such. She stood strong and hid her hands and told us about herself. She's super spunky and her gallery is called "Funny Girl." She invited us to sit down so we sat with her and she started asking about us. We told her we were missionaries and she completely opened up to us about how she was diagnosed with this illness, and usually she is fine but when she needs medicine she starts to shake. The whole time she was hiding her hands and just began to cry.
You could tell this wasn't something she likes to talk about, but somehow she found comfort in us. After talking to her for a while we just shared a simple scripture with her and bore our testimonies. She gave Sister Park the first picture she had ever made, and she told me that she is making a new picture especially for me so that we will return next week and have ice cream with her (I'm secretly drawing something for her too... ;))
This is missionary work. And I am so happy. Moroni 7:22 is so true, I meet angels every day.
I love all of you so very much and will always be praying for you!
