I've learned recently about the importance of diligence with prayer and seeking revelation. The Lord wants us to take great care with the things that he gives us. Kind of like the parable of the talents. When we feel impressed to do something or learn something from scripture study, it is important that we apply it, grow it, and develop it in every way we can. The more we "arouse our faculties" and strive to follow Christ's example, the greater the witness, knowledge, and revelation we will receive. Through our diligence, we show that we can be trusted with more.
Thanks for your messages and support! It means a lot to me. Love you!
Wonju is great! It is a little cooler than Seoul, but I think everywhere is cooling down now, so it might just be the timing. Elder Peterson is great! He has a lot of faith and is doing a lot for Wonju Branch. He is from North Carolina and played trombone in high school. He is pretty big into music, and is actually leading the branch choir each week. He's been in Korea for 11 transfers, which are each six weeks. I am on my ninth. He is also SUPER good at Korean.
There is so much going on at home! There must be a lot of grass now. How do you water it all?
