Nick

This week I've seen one of the greatest miracles on my mission, which was our investigator, Nick (not his real name). We sat down again to teach him about baptism through endure to the end. Normally, he has quite some difficulty understanding the doctrine and the Book of Mormon. This time, however, as we were reading just the first few verses of 2 Nephi 31, he simply understood everything. He understood the entire gospel, even the parts we had not yet taught. The way he explained baptism was like a gate, which amazed us, because that's often the way we explain it, too. We then drew the picture of a gate and a path leading to eternal life. He then explained that the Holy Ghost was like a guide on that path, and that when we make mistakes we lose its guidance, but can get it back by repenting. We hardly said anything, and truly experienced the Holy Ghost teaching him. He then sincerely said that, this time (he has learned this lesson from missionaries before), he understands and wants to be baptized. When he prayed at the end of the lesson, he spoke with such sincerity. When he thanked Heavenly Father for us, the missionaries, tears came to my eyes. We set the date and will work with him each day to get him ready. He has a few challenges to overcome, but I believe he can do it. We are so excited and happy for him! 

Another great miracle was an investigator we found up north of Wonju. He actually asked us if he could come to church, and afterward we met with him and taught him the Restoration. His prior knowledge of doctrine and churches was really surprising. We put a lot of focus on Priesthood and shared about the significance of being called of God. We plan on continuing to meet him. 

Other than that, things are just going as usual. We streetboard, tried survey proselyting for the first time, and are getting ready for Christmas events. Hope you all have a great week!
