Ohhhhh, yeahhhh!

We're having GREAT success with Sis. Yi, the hanbok lady (can they put that on her Church records?). The spirit is always so strong when we teach her, and now she wants to share it with her family! It's so awesome that Sis. Choi and her family let us teach in their home. It really helps in so, so many ways.

I heard from Sis. Kimmie in Ukraine (she lives in one of the links on the side of the blog here). Here's what her mission president said about what's going on there:
“I have contacted our mission leaders within the last hour, and they in turn have contacted each of the missionaries. All of our missionaries are well. Again, there is no cause for alarm, but conditions merit an extra measure of caution. I will continue to keep you advised. We are grateful for the expertise of the Church Security Department, which has a wealth of experience in preserving the health and safety of missionaries worldwide in a variety of circumstances over many years.”
Glad that things are OK! Keep her in your prayers!

It amazes me!

One of the things that's really awesome is to see how members of the ward come together to help teach and support our investigators. I'm thrilled to see how much love and caring goes out, and how many prayers go up to support them and to support us as missionaries! I'm so thankful for everybody!

More on the hanbok lady!

So I have to start this out by saying we have been WAY busy! It's been like a week since I started to tell you about the hanbok lady coming to church. She was super excited to start learning!

I thought she was pretty sweet to say that. She's soooo funny! Anyway, the ward has really embraced her -- I'll tell you more about that later, too!

I heard that the North (Ibuk) agreed to let some of the families that were divided by the war have a reunion with their family members in the South. That's kind of cool. I hope it's a good sign! It would be so awesome to take the Gospel up to the North! Probably not yet, but it could happen.

There's also a lot of talk about one of the Olympic ice skaters from Korea. She's like a superstar here! Her picture is everywhere and people are always asking us if we saw her skate and we say no, we don't even watch TV. I probably couldn't understand anything anyway!

Anyway, we've got appointments set up to teach the hanbok lady -- Sis. Yi, by the way. It's spelled  이, but it can be romanized as Rhee, Lee, Yi and I'm sure some other ways as well. She's awesome, and on track! Woo-hoo!

A special guest!

You'll never guess who came to church today! Well, if you've already looked at the picture, then you can probably guess. Anyways...


We were SO excited! I'll tell you more about it a little later!

Best. Day. EVER! How many times have I/will I say that on my mission? First, dinner was GREAT. The food looked a little funny, but then I decided if they can eat it, I can eat it! Some of it was, um, different... but it was yummy! And afterward, they brought out a HUGE delicious asian pear for both me and Sis. Clabby!

Afterward we went to the park and hung out, talking to all kinds of people. There must be a billion pictures of me in my hanbok on Instagram by now! So many people wanted a picture of the American wearing Korean clothes! We talked to so many people and it was so much fun! They didn't even seem to mind that we were missionaries!

A couple of little kids in their little kid hanboks came and bowed to us. We didn't have any money or goodies to give them, so Sis. Clabby gave them each a Joseph Smith pamphlet!

I hope our contacting did some good! We met a lot of people!

Love the work! Love the gospel!
