여러분, I love my Savior ❤️
Since it's Easter I thought of this beautiful scripture
8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
Like the scripture says, I know Jesus is our God! He lives, and He overcame death and sin. I can not express the amount of joy I have because of Him 💐🌹🌏
Namwom is green. I can't believe it. It's crazy. Back when I arrived in November, everything was vibrant red, orange, and yellow. Then everything slowly died. And I've only know this city be full of dead trees and dried shrubs. But now...I can hardly recognize the city. It's so beautiful, and it gets better each day. It makes me so happy ^^
This week I was very bipolar about my motivation to consistently work. So, fun fact, I've been having back problems for the past few weeks. So, if you have some prayers to spare....주시면 감사하겠습니다.
The doctors and our mission health advisor have told me I need to rest more throughout the day. Because of this I've been less active than normal. But this week, when I was active...oh man. Talk about fire in the bones!! I was so ecstatic to go out and tell the world and tell every single person that Jesus lives!! We literally attempted to talk to every single person we saw and invite them to our Easter Sunday service.
My favorite day was Saturday. I woke up and went to my companion, "Elder, last night I dreamed a dream. We need to drop everything we were going to do this morning. And instead, we're going to make a Easter poster, and go outside, and we're going to sing Easter carols." I've been so inspired to treat Easter with the same spirit as Christmas, and Christmas caroling was my favorite! So I wanted to try the same thing. We called up a member and he joined us. We walked to the busiest part of the city, and we sang beautiful hymns testifying of the Living Savior Jesus Christ. It is difficult to describe my joy in singing aloud for all to hear "Christ the Lord is ris'n today, Alleluia!"
Sunday was so special too :)) even though none of our teaching friends or all the people who heard our invitation came, it was still very joyful with our absolutely outstanding members of the Namwon branch ❤️ Its an absolute joy for me to be the pianist for these beautiful people, they sing so sincerely and with so much joy!! We performed a special musical number "I Stand All Amazed" where I got to sing with my companion and two other members. Such a wonderful memory :)) and then eating 떡볶이 (stir fried rice cake) and eggs after the meeting, so awesome ^^
Thanks for listening to me chat. And I wanna hear about your Easter too! It means so much that your spending this time with me, I love you and I miss you ❤️
Jesus Christ and His love is REAL
Love ya :))
