It's getting really cold in Korea. Good thing I like the cold....just kidding the cold is actually really hard for me. But it's ok because I just get all nice and bundled up and ready to hit the streets 🌩🏄♂️
For example on Friday morning, one of the coldest mornings of the week, temperatures of -8 degrees Celsius/17 Farenheit (with wind chill , it's also humid cold here, which I've never experienced). My companion and I playfully planned 2 hours of street contacting. And even though it was numbing cold, it was warm in my heart, and that warmth lasted the whole day. Even though we didn't see much come from our serious and determined efforts, it was a testament to me that God appreciates all effort. That confirmation was through the fact that I felt much more satisfied that day than most days. And so I know it's a true principle for all of us. I love this quote by Ezrea Taft Benson "Work, work, work - there is no satisfactory substitute."
Teaching has been really good. It's really special to see people slowly turn themselves more towards Christ and His light. I'm so excited for the Christmas season!! And I'm so excited to be sharing the story and message of Christ's birth with everyone this month. In our church, during the month of December leading up to Christmas, we have what's called "Light the World" where we all try to share goodness amongst out friends and family and community, to celebrate the light that Christ gives to us. There is light in all of us. The light of Christ. I love this scripture, it's of Christ's words to the people in the American continent as recorded in the Book of Mormon.
3 Nephi 18:24 - "Therefore, hold up your light that it may shine unto the world. Behold ✨️I am the light which ye shall hold up✨️—that which ye have seen me do. Behold ye see that I have prayed unto the Father, and ye all have witnessed."
The light is Jesus Christ, and when we learn of Him and who He was and how He shared light, I know we can share our light within ourselves better. I'm so excited to see how bright we can make the world leading up to Christmas :))
Ok, I love you chingu. Another funny word I say is 분 or boon. Boon means person in a sense. Idk I think it's fun to call people boon, so I'm calling you my boon. Have a good night though. Or morning, you know, just whenever you read this ❤️
This week I have 0 photos, except for some new paintings of Christ I found...and also these super ridiculous korean/english mood chart pictures that make me laugh SO HARD they're so ridiculous!! Anyways, ✨️please enjoy✨️
