This week is full of crazy events so I'll go day by day.
A member decided it would be fun to take me to "my dad's restaurant." A.K.A Papa Johns[on]. He thought it was the funniest thing. Our entire meal appointment he kept asking "how does it feel to be eating at your dad's place??" haha members..
Tuesday: Appointments. Nothing too special.
I GOT MY GREENIE! She's the greatest! Her name is Sister Northrigde and she's from LOGAN, UTAH. She'll be going to Utah State after the mission too. So automatically BFF's, right? Haha she has greenie power FOR SURE. She's so willing to work and do everything I say! It's great cause it keeps me motivated to be the best trainer for her! She's also SOOO ready for that Gang nam Style life!
Sister Northridge got food poisoning. Poor girl. Her first actual day in country and she spent it in bed/puking. Sorry TMI. I felt so bad for her. What a memorable experience that is!
We have this potential investigator that the elders met and referred to us. So we've been trying to meet with her this entire transfer, but she always cancelled on us last minute. So we FINALLY got to meet with her and she was GOLDEN. The first thing she did was take the Book of Mormon right out of our hands and ask if she could have it. She was soaking up everything we were telling her! Later on she told us that her dad is actually a member and apparently she got baptized? I asked her if she got baptized when she was 9 (American age 8) and she said she got baptized at age 6 or 7? That's not right.. So we'll look more into it. BUT we may have found a less active on our hands!
We also went to the Gang nam Style sign on the big Gang nam street and ran into some members visiting from Chicago! They said that the little kids were praying to find the missionaries in Korea. And there we were(: Super cool!
We definitely saw a famous guy. He's really big here in Korea. He's on all the Paris Baguette, Tous Les Jours (bread shops), and other things. He's a famous actor. Well there was a huge crowd on Gang nam Dae ro. We walked back & forth few times to see what was going on, but the 50 million body guards kept telling people to keep walking. The last time we decided to walk by, we totally saw him! I don't even know anything about Korean famous people, but I was definitely star struck.. Haha for the .5 seconds that I saw him in the crowd of tons of people. That was fun though!
His name is 김수현 I think.
We had regular church because we don't get to watch conference until next week. So I hope everyone had fun watching it.. Gotta wait for next week. Translations.. BUT I did get some Cadburry eggs from a German member(: I can't go an Easter without Cadburry eggs!
Due to it being Easter, we made Easter eggs with a scripture on it so we could visit less actives and tell them "Happy Easter!" but no one was home. The scripture we shared is one of my favorites.
6 And now if Christ had not come into the world, speaking of things to come as though they had already come, there could have been no redemption.
7 And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.
8 BUT THERE IS A RESURRECTION, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
9 He is the light and the life of the world; yea that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter! (I think it's still happening in the US, right?) I love you all and always remember #BecauseHeLives.
