February 16, 2015

          I have one more story.  Our butt-dial guy said that if it rained on Sunday he wouldn’t have to work and he would come to church.  So we prayed super duper hard for it to rain so he could come.  Well, it didn’t rain and I was really confused and sad because I wanted him to come.  I have only had 2 people come to church, and I knew he needed this to progress.  But that’s not how it happened and I didn’t know why.  I had had faith, and the right intentions, but it didn’t turn out how I wanted it.  But church was extremely dull that day and I don’t think he would have had a good experience.  So I am glad and thankful that it turned out the way it did (it actually rained pretty well that evening.  It wasn’t the way I initially wanted, but it was God’s way and He knew a heck of a lot better than me.

Today is the Korean New Years, the biggest holiday in Korea, so we had our Pday switched to today.  Since people are off work, we were actually able to visit some members yesterday!  But we had to just show up at their door.  That is really the only way to do it here.  At least we were able to get in!  The investigator we got through a butt-dial is still doing well.  We stay in contact with him frequently and are building a good relationship.  We were going to eat dinner with him at Pres. Shin’s home yesterday, but he had to leave suddenly to pick up his aunt.  He’s still doing well though.  Please pray for him (Yongho Jang). 

          Sadly, Ooyoung Jo isn’t doing too great.  We taught the restoration again and he got a little defensive and kind of just said that since this is what we’ve been taught, we believe it, and he will just stick to what he’s been taught.  Super sad.  I know that conversion would help with all his problems he has, but he just doesn’t want to accept it.  My comp and I came out of that lesson just so sad!  Ahhh if only people could see what they were missing. 

          On the bright, Elder Warren and I are getting along super great!  It has been a ton of fun all the time working with him. 

          Yup, that’s about it.  We are working hard to find new people to teach, but it is insanely hard!!  But we’ll keep at it in faith that we will be guided to someone we can help.
