This week flew by! We were so busy and I actually have so much to talk about!We literally spent half of our time doing service and it was amazing but we still made time to try to find people to teach. I built and decorated 7 Christmas trees! and it’s only the first week of December! We are helping with at least one more this upcoming week but we’ll see if we do more!
On Tuesday and Thursday we helped the Korean elders teach English class and one of the students brought us some Korean food, I would tell you what she called it but I have no idea how to begin trying to spell it. It was delicious and that’s what matters 😊
On Monday, Tuesday and Saturday we helped put up all those trees. A few in peoples homes and a few for the ward Christmas party! It was so fun and it turned out great! It was fun to spend some more time with our amazing ward. And the guy who has a meat smoker was in charge of the hams #bless
We enlisted the help of the Korean elders to help clean up and sweet Elder Lee (who was born and raised in Korea) had his first experience with canned whipped cream. He picked up the can and was like "what is this?" so at first we had him try a little bit on his finger but we eventually got him to squirt it in his mouth for the full experience, he loved it 😂😂😂
On Tuesday, Friday and Sunday we helped the families who fed us dinner get involved in missionary work! We asked them to pray for the guidance of the spirit and then look at a map of our area and pick a street for us to go try to find people! We saw miracles each time and it was so nice to see how seriously the members took it! They really wanted us to find people too and their faith helped us be successful!
Something I’ve learned this week is that God wants so badly for us to be successful! He wants to bless us and for us to have happy lives! He has given us instructions on how to live the best life in the scriptures! Read them! Ask for the spirit to guide you! He will!!!!! And sometimes our version of success is different than the success that God has in mind for us. Trust Him! I’ve been trying to be better everyday about seeking out God’s will and then fearlessly following it! It will be a lifelong pursuit.
One other awesome thing that happened was that we were asked to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald house! Only two companionships in the whole mission were asked to go and guess who else got picked….. SISTER KAUFUSI, my #1 homedog for life. We had a blast serving those sweet families in whatever little way we could.
So that was my week! I hope y’all had a great one too! Thanks for all the notes of encouragement! They mean so much! I love you all so much! And Jesus does too! Celebrate his birth by serving others like He did! #lighttheworld
My companion already got presents! And her family sent this tree!
