Week 10 - Second week in Korea

This week we had quite a crazy schedule and a lot of things going on. We had a lot of appointments and were pretty busy all week which was good!! We taught a lesson to an older man on Monday who was mostly interested in English, but he said he was willing to study the Book of Mormon and then decide if he would pray about it so that's progress! 

Tuesday we taught the younger youth in the church English which was super fun! They played games and raced to see who could pronounce words correctly and their accents trying to pronounce certain English words was super hilarious.
After teaching English class we proselyted the rest of the day and ended up walking 21,000 steps so that was pretty crazy!

Saturday we took our older non member English class on a little hike thing so we could practice their English just talking about things as we hiked. We went to this beautiful park where there were massive tombs for this ancient King and his wife. It's crazy how there can be so many crazy apartments and buildings in Korea and at the same time beautiful historic places as well.

Because of the time difference we ended up watching General Conference this weekend instead of last Saturday and Sunday. For anyone who hasn't watched it yet I would highly recommend doing so! My favorite talks were the talk from Russel M. Nelson, both talks from President Monson, and Elder Holland's talk from the priesthood session. I always take for granted how amazing General Conference is and as I prepared and took notes throughout this time, I was able to feel the spirit more abundantly teach and grow my testimony. 

In between session on Sunday we had a huge meal with the members and we had octopus like squid soup thing and it was delicious! I love the Korean food and the wards here sure know how to do General Conference right.

Last I just want to testify of Jesus Christ and his atonement. I've been reading the New Testament and it just amazes me in every verse how amazing Christ is and how much he loves each and everyone of us. I would hope you all can focus on his love and his atonement this week, and remember that when things are tough, he is always there for us.

Thanks for the messages this week,love you all!
