It’s already May! Wow! Man, it’s crazy to think how much time has gone by. This week went by especially fast because it was a great one. Why? Because we now have 2 baptismal dates! Woohoo! The first one is Song Gwangjeong. I might’ve talked about him last week but he’s the husband of a member. We used to teach him but couldn’t meet for several months. He came to church last week and said he’ll get baptized in May, so we were able to meet him and set a date for the 29th I don’t really know him too well so we’re hoping to be able to meet him more and help him get ready.
The second one is our best friend Park Jongmoon! He really is just the best guy ever and it’s been so much fun meeting with him. He has decided to be baptized on the 22nd and also have our families meet when mine comes to Korea. Yay! I’m super excited. We’re just hoping that the ward accepts him well. We did a member lesson once which went super well so it should work out.
I talked about Hwang Seongoon last week. He’s the one who was searching super hard to figure out what happens to good people who died without having the chance to accept the gospel. Well, it may have overwhelmed him and he got a lot of stress from his work and family so he is taking some time to figure out his life and then we’ll meet again. Hopefully we can meet him soon. I think it’ll take some time though.
We were able to go to a wedding last week, it was pretty different. First off there were 5 weddings or so going on all at once in the same building just different rooms. But you could stand in the foyer and watch 4 weddings at once. It was pretty interesting, a good experience but I don’t want my wedding like that. Especially because the bride was super not into it and kept rejecting the groom. Poor guy.
We made a lot of good memories last week with weddings, investigators, hugs from random guys on the streets, getting yelled at and called handsome by a horde of girls, and more. It’s been a good week. We don’t have many investigators but the ones we have are great.
So, yeah, things are going well. Hopefully things work out with our investigators and we don’t have to spend so much time on the streets next week. I hope you’re all enjoying the nice Utah spring (except Elizabeth). Thank you for all the support. I found a good verse I’d like to share 3 Nephi 22:4. We’ve all made mistakes in the past, but there’s no need to dwell on them. Have a great week!
