Always remember Him

Last zone meeting was a particularly spiritual one. It seemed to focus on all the things that I have been focused on and want to improve. One of those things is to always keep our focus on the Savior. There were two examples shared: Peter leaving the ship to walk on the water to the Savior, and the people of Ammon burying their weapons of rebellion. The connection, which I've never seen before, was quite powerful. If there is anything that pulls our thoughts or feelings or actions away from the Savior, then we we need to forsake those things. As I tried harder, among all the things we do each day, to keep each thought and action focused on Christ, I have felt a difference. As I have set goals to forsake one of my own weapons of rebellion each day, I have felt a difference. I can testify that the Savior is, in fact, the center of the Father's plan for us; so much so, in fact, that if one were to take Him out of it, the plan, the scriptures, prayer, and everything would lose all meaning. Just over the past few days, focusing on the Savior with intent to forsake whatever is keeping me from Him has brought these things to life in a new way. The simple doctrine of His gospel as contained in the Book of Mormon is the most precious of truths. 

This week, we met Nick again and taught him the plan of salvation. He's been reading a lot of the Book of Mormon! We are really excited for him. He is planning on going to Canada soon, but we are working to help him exercise his faith to prepare for baptism. 

Wonju feels a lot more Christmasy than Seoul did! There are light over the streets, big Christmas trees, Christmas music (Michael Buble the other day), and so on. Pretty exciting! I hope you are all getting excited.
