Sister McDonald and I had another really awesome week in SeJong. It's starting to feel like spring her and the cherry blossom song keeps playing on the streets so we know warmness is right around the corner.
Sometimes it's really hard to explain or even remember all the things we learn and do in one week. The thing that seems to stick out the most from this week when I think back is this,
Sister McDonal and I were super blessed this week to meet a lot of new people who want to learn english. Because of this, a lot of appointments got moved or some people thought it was fun to be really spontaneous and not show up. This left Sister McDonald and I with our hands folded in prayer more than probably ever before in our missions. We decided that whenever something didn't go according to plan, we would ask Heavenly Father where we should go- and even if it didn't make sense we would do it. This lead us to a few places that helped me realize a lot about our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
The first place was to a former investigators store, They hadn't met her for about two months. When we arrived, EunJin the former investigator, sat us down and just starting crying. She told us that she had been afraid to pray but just thought over and over again that she wished someone would send her help. She had been doing this for three days and then we showed up at her store. She then proceeded to tell us that she knew God was listening to her and that He had sent us, and she knew now that she could pray to Him and He would make it okay.
The second place was on Saturday night, we were really excited about meeting a new investigator when she told us she couldn't meet anymore. We prayed, and although we had been to this house almost weekly with nothing too amazing happening, we felt we should go visit a woman who hadn't been to church in months. We arrived at her house and she let us in. We felt we needed to sing hymns, and she recorded them on her phone. After singing two or three, she stopped and said. "I prayed that God would send you here, I was sitting here crying and praying and not knowing what to do, and then you called." We were sitting in Sunday School yesterday when she walked into church for the first time since the branch opened.
I don't have time for the whole story, but somethng similar happened last night, except we felt we need to walk to an apartment about 20 minutes away at 8 oclock to see if anyone needed our help (we didn't know anyone over there). We prayed about whcih appartment, which floor, which floor, again, and which floor again, and then we knocked on a door. No answer. We had time just for one more door, we knocked, a mom answered and she let us in. We were able to share with her, her daughter, and friend a message about the plan of salvation.
We never know where we will be lead, but we can trust that if we ask and we do what we know is good, and ask again, and maybe even ask some more, we will in the end be where we need to be. We are the children of a Heavenly Father, and He knows us far more then we can even comprehend. I know that through Christ we can understand how much He truly loves us. We do what we do out here because of them. There is nothing better in the whole world.
Please pray for our friends Sister Koo and Sister Jeong! That would mean the world. Know I pray for you every single day and think of you alwayssss!
Have a great week! enjoy the beautiful whether if it's there!
