My week in a box? 11/23/14

WEll this week was absoltively fun!  We had a blast doing some crazy hunting for less actives and tracting for once in a loooooooooooong time!!!!  Actually dont really have too much to talk about this week!

We met 2 less actives and we are super excited about them coming back to church and being active in the ward again.  Another members son whom was lessa ctive for several months to study for a test (because study comes before anything else in korea) is now starting to come back to activity and will even be going with us to the temple next saturday!  Btw we are going to the temple next saturday to do baptisms for the dead with our youth!  Super long trip but totally worth it (almost 7 hours round trip)  I love this ward so much and already feel like  a member of a small family haha :)  

This week I also had some great studies of the book of Esther in the Old Testament about love and how she had Fearless Love (see 1 John 4).  I have been trying to have perfect love for the people of korea because as we know, "perfect love casteth out fear"  And as we are loving towards the people we can be more and more bold in our approaches to share the gospel.  Same goes for everthing else that we do and everyother situation that we share the gospel in!  Learn it!  Dont be afraid to share the gospel.  As me and Elder Garff say every morning:  I FEAR NO MAN!!!

and we got transfer calls this week, I am staying in Taebaek!  Yay!!! We are super excited to have another transfer together to grow and work even harder here.  We are planning on seeing some great progress this upcoming week!  It was a little hard to hear some of the other people in lower groups have become leaders and are training and im just a junior companion still, but I know the Lord knows me perfectly and knows what I need to do.  I just need to trust more in his timing.  I know he has something planned for each of us and we just need to be worthy.  Many are CALLED few are CHOSEN.  

So thats it!  I hope everyone is having a great week!  Look for every oppportunity to shrae the gospel!!! Dont let satan stop you!
