Hello, World! (27 April 2014)

Hello, Me Lovelies.
Can ye hear me accent? I can't type in it, but I hope ye hear it. It is somewhat like Mrs. Doubtfire. You got it now? Good.
No Obama sightings on this end. But I heard about it from every Korean I met on the street. Haha. They asked me if I saw him, too. Haha.
This week was really great. We had a mission tour by Elder Scott D. Whiting of the Seventy? I am not exactly sure what his title is. But it was absolutely wonderful. I felt the Lord's presence and His pushing to teach me things that will make me a better person and missionary. What I felt the most is this. The Lord is anxious to teach us. To fix us. We all have problems, but the only way those problems will be fixed is by learning certain lessons through the spirit in such a way that we don't just merely learn something, but a truth is incorporated into who we are. The Lord is not only able to teach us these things that we may change, but he is anxious to.
Despite our many weaknesses, He understands and is willing to teach us, and make us whole.
This week.... Not a whole lot happened in terms of other stuff, just talking to lots of people. I met some fun people. They will probably all be baptized. hahaha.
Keep me in your prayers!

HELO! (20 April 2014)

I don't remember how to spell Helo. Is that right? Ha.
Right now I am listening to a pioneer day concert from the church. This lady is the bomb. Katherine Jenkins.
I met the meanest man in the world this week. It really made me think. I get ignored everyday. But not like this. It was different. There was this foreigner on a bus. I talked to some other people on the bus, but when they all got off, it was just this man with his Korean wife and 2 half-Korean, half-white kids. He was speaking another language, but it was very loud, so I couldn't tell. When everyone else got off the bus, the seat next to him was free. So I sat in it. I remembered saying hi to him as he got on. But he didn't seem to hear. But then as I was sitting there. I said hi again. Still he didn't seem to hear. His 2 kids were playing with each other and I could hear the language they were speaking. It was German. So I looked at him and said, "Guten Tag!" Still acted like he didn't hear. I thought, hmmmm.... So I asked if he was from Germany in German. Nothing. Then I leaned in a little... "Which part of Germany are you from?" (in German). He freaked out and just told me to quit, with the rudest eyes I've seen in awhile.  And he just kept saying it. I don't know why exactly it was so mean to me. I think it was because it was simply being ignored as a person, and not necessarily as a missionary. It was simply me asking him where he was from, and he ignored me so completely that I genuinely believed he didn't hear me. I have had people tell me that I am wasting my time and that I am not needed and that I should just go home. But this just seemed different to me. Anyways. I've gotten over it, obviously. But it made me think a lot. Especially about the Savior and how He was treated much more badly. And He experienced much worse things for us. Rejection is an interesting feeling. Especially when you have pure motives and are simply acting out of goodness. But He with the purest motives was rejected more than us all.
But other than that, it was a really good week! Hahaha. Don't worry. We got 4 new investigators and had lots of fun. I get to see the Seoul South missionaries on Saturday! There is a Fireside with Sister Burton, and we all get to go! That will be exciting!
I have been playing the piano for Primary lately! It is the best! I love those little kids. There was one little boy yesterday with a birthday. AND HE WAS THE CUTEST! I'll have to take a picture with him later.
I love you all!!!!!!! Keep me in your prayers!

Hello! (13 April 2014)

Hello, Me lovelies!
What a wonderful weekend it was here in Korea! We had General Conference! I know you all had it last week, but it is slower here in Korea. Oh how I was fed by the word of the Lord. It was great. I was reminded more deeply of the necessity and importance of strengthening my own relationship with my Father in Heaven through prayer and dedicated study. The truths of who we are as His children are sufficient to overcome any troubles or trials we are facing. That single truth, namely we are the children of Heavenly Father, if understood, would change the world and light the darkest place. So simple, yet so deep, and so often misunderstood.
Not much happened this week, in terms of other stuff, though. Ha. But it was fun. I feel happy today and look forward to more happy days to come as I lean on the Lord. We met some good people and hopefully we'll have some more people to meet with in the future!
I love you all! Time flew by today while emailing. I will do better next week on letting you know what is going on! Ha.
<3 Love,

I am sick. So I don't think I can write much today....
We went and picked all-you-can-eat strawberries. It was delicious! I have never eaten that many strawberries in one day.
Other than that... We met lots of people this week. Hopefully some of them become investigators!
I went on exchanges with some other missionaries and taught one of their hard investigators. I don't think I have ever spewed out so much Korean in my life. It was great! Hahaha. But I really felt the spirit and felt as though he was really being taught to his needs and his knowledge.
I've really only had a few lessons where I just spewed out Korean for a long time. Hahaha. Most people don't really need that.
We will watch General Conference next week! Everyone should watch it!  How was it? Any favorites for me?
I love you all! I need to go lay on my bed. Well not really a bed, but a mat on the floor.
Pray for me!
