Our zone changed a fair amount! But as I looked at all the people in our zone now, I feel like there is nobody we need to worry about. I think they are all super solid! I am excited for this transfer! My companion works hard and is obedient!
Well funny story for this week. On the bus I met these two guys that were about my age. Before they got off I got one of their phone numbers. I texted him just a little and he said his friend wanted to get to know me. So of course I assumed it was the other guy on the bus... So he sent me the phone number. Ultimately I figured out it might be a girl, but I was never sure and I felt awkward asking either one. So we just met at a coffee shop. I made sure we just paid for ourselves and we just introduce our English program and got to know her. I think she mainly wanted foreign friends/maybe a boyfriend... but I think she realized that was not happening! Awkward but fun experience! I think when people realize what you believe and what type of person you are, they normally will respect and mold their behavior to match yours!
Other than that, we had a lot of goodbyes for Elder Olson at the beginning of the week, and a fair amount of cancelled appointments at the end! I am trying to make studies more effective for me and my companion, so I am making a study plan for Korean/teaching. All that I am doing is trying to connect all the studies for my companion by learning words that he can use in a lot of roleplays that we do in companion study and teach in ways he planned in Personal study. So hopefully things will all start to connect a little! We are starting over with our teaching improvement program for our mission and just doing it the way it should be done! I really do enjoy teaching and educational ideas/theories of learning. I don't know a lot, but like it! I have been teaching little kids in English class, and I really enjoy it. It is exhausting, but fun. I do think I want to do something with education in my life!
Anyway, as I have been studying the Book of moron lately, there is one thought I have seen a lot. In order to repent people have to be willing to do a lot! Whether it is giving up their kingdom, changing their entire life's beliefs, dying instead of fighting, etc. they have to get to the point of saying I will do whatever it takes. Then God will help them repent/change/gain a testimony, in normally a much easier way than they imagined! I love that.
Hurrah for Israel!--
