We had a pretty great week this week! We had an investigator that was planned for being baptized this week but we ran into some problems getting permission from his parents. so we were not able to do it this week,but his parents didn't say that he cant go to church they was just worried about what their son was doing. Long story short the father came to the church and talked with our amazing Young Mens president, and talked to his son some more and he is scheduled to get baptized this next week! Super awesome miracle! I was looking at him on Sunday and he fit in to our young mens so well. He looks like he just belongs in the church! Im excited for him!
Our other investigator that was going to be baptized has not answered his phone very much lately, he has been grounded so it has been hard to meet him, hopefully he can get baptized next month.
I read the awesome story of the Anti Nephi Lehis burying their weapons the other day and a lot of things came to my mind. In one of the verses it says that they buried the weapons "deep" in the ground. I think they buried them deep for a reason. They made it so they couldn't retrieve them again, even if they wanted to. I think that is how we need to be with sin, when we throw our sin away we need to throw away everything that comes with it, burying them deep! Not ever going back to old ways or habits but putting them away. That was a really cool insight to me, especially since I have been thinking about keeping up mission habits and not falling into some of my old ones, that is going to be one of my goals.
Our zone took a really big fall this week with progressing investigators and baptismal dates. We had a couple people who were really solid drop off because of parents or a college professor, who didn't like us. We did see some awesome things happening in 이문. One of the Elders have a baptismal date. Im glad that they can see the visible success, because they all work really hard.
I ate Dog this week. Super good. different but super good. see attached picture. 2 words...korean...culture....:) it was really good.
