This week was super awesome, and here it is super summed up!
We went and visited a former investigator this week, that turned out to be a Buddhist Monk and she lives at a Buddhist temple. That was interesting. She was so adorable and I guess just loves to learn about other religions. So we had lunch with her, and taught her a lesson about our church as a whole. It felt weird being inside of the Buddhist temple, but I mean, she asked us to right? She still had her Book of Mormon from the missionaries before on her book shelf and said how much she has loved what she read. Then as we were there talking other Buddhists came in and she shared part of it with them, that was awesome. She practically introduced the Book of Mormon to them for us!
A member in our ward owns a Body Test Center and invited us over to do that, that was cool, except doing the pacer test was definitely not something I ever planned on doing again. I learned that I am not very strong and have no flexibility. Apparently you you can get in the negatives on flexibility...oops. She was like, "Okay go!" And I was like, "What? I already am!"
The next day she took us to dinner and then after we walked around the lights along the beach, and she held our hands the whole time. Koreans love holding hands, it's something fun in their culture. I think she was also just worried about losing us, but you know.
So a few weeks ago this man came into the church and said he wanted to give our ward free meat for lunch after church because his mom is one of the old ladies that has this fruit stand across the street. We always say hi to them and will help them move boxes of fruit if they need it, and he said to say thank you he wanted to give us all this meat.
Well randomly yesterday in middle of Sacrament meeting he walks up to the door with two huge bags of meat! Our Mission President was there visiting too, it was so funny. Hey at least thats probably a first for him!
This week I was thinking a lot about the power of the Atonement. A few weeks ago at our Sports Day we did an activity with the Atonement. Each Zone had to pick two people to be their Savior. They then had to do 10 push ups for each person in the zone as they stood in front of them. I just can't get past how amazing that is. How Christ loves us each so much that He was willing to die for us. Not only that, but as He was paying for all of our sins He thought about each of us individually. He knew who we are, our weaknesses, our strengths, our hard ships that would lie ahead, He knew everything. Most of all He knew He wanted to be able to lift us and help us through it all. How thankful I am for Him, for this gospel and that I get to share it everyday.
I love you all.
