Things were a little slow for a couple weeks, but this week we were blessed with people to teach! One is the son of a less active member we visited, one is a member referral, one is investigator who moved from a different area, and the other is someone we found streetboarding. We are really excited to be teaching again, and are working hard to improve our teaching skills. And, of course, "finding constantly" (mission slogan).
I hope you all had a great New Years. I know I did! My New Years Goal comes from Moroni 7, which is to "cleave unto charity." In my interview with President Sonksen this week, he shared how charity, like faith, means action. Just like true faith, based in and on the Savior, leads us to act in harmony with his teachings, having charity means that we really act to uplift others in a genuine way, like the Savior did. I'm really excited to build this goal. I find the less I think about myself and the more I think about the Savior and others, the happier I am.
Oh! I forgot to talk about Christmas conference. We had a great Christmas conference a couple weeks ago where some really cool announcements were made. The way President Sonksen brought it up was something like this:
"My favorite apostles are Elder Bednar and Elder Holland. I just love the way they teach. We were able to see have Elder Bednar come just a few months ago and learn from him. Wouldn't it be cool to see Elder Holland too?" Then, after a pause, "Well, guess what? We will." Elder Holland is coming to Korea! I'm so excited for that. We will meet him with Seoul South Mission in Seoul again, like we did for Elder Bednar.
Have a great week everyone!
