Elder Peterson and I also hope to do a lot of family history proselyting this week. We had a special training up in Gangneung, and Sister Sonksen gave an inspiration training on using the Spirit of Elijah in our work by sharing some stories about ancestors, asking people about their families and ancestors, and introducing them to family search. We really want to take advantage of this blessing to try to help more people obtain interest in the gospel.
Another thing we learned in training is that nothing we do - planning, personal study, companion study, language study, or activities - should be for us. It all needs to be directed toward others. This is hard to do, especially during studies. But as I have done it I have already noticed my thought more often be drawn to investigators and members. We have better been prepared to receive revelation for them and accomplish more during the day. I feel that when we are prepared to use them, the Lord blesses us with more opportunities.
Love you all! Thank you for your prayers.
Wonju is great! My companion played trombone in school and has a lot of similar interests, like reading and music. He is actually leading the branch choir right now. He is form North Carolina, so the hot and humid weather is totally normal for him. He also has a strong testimony and desire to accomplish a lot here, especially the branch. His mom is a writer and may even be getting a book published soon. He is super smart, too. Apparently he finished high school a year early and went to college at SVU. He is really great, and I feel like we work very will together.
