Elder Kim Taewan is from the Busan area. He is super focused on the work and extremely diligent in getting things done. I hope to learn a lot from him and find some people to teach.
Our investigator got confirmed, which was great! We will still be meeting with him regularly, and we are praying a lot for him to continue building faith and pursuing this commitment he has made.
I've been wondering a lot recently on what really brings the Spirit to people and how to testify in a way that invites the Spirit. I am learning that every testimony must be sincere - that is, when we testify to someone on the street that the Book of Mormon is true, we are saying that with an honest desire for them to find out for themselves if it is true. When are intentions parallel Heavenly Father's, he will bless our actions and words with power. President Hinckley was told by his father during his mission to forget himself and go to work. To "forget yourself" is not easy to do, but as we strive to serve the Lord because we love Him, and thus serve His children, he will pour his Spirit upon us. Heavenly Father wants His children to know he loves them, and he wants them to come unto Him and to be able to bless them. When we do all we can to be in a position to accomplish this will because of our sincere desire to serve Him, He will be there to help us. The intentions within our hearts, when pure, create room for the Spirit to fill us.
Hope you are all doing well and enjoying Christmas season!
