Counterfeits and Transfers

Doesn't this look like a great deal?!?!  I feel this is what Satan does to us.  He offers us these deals of agency. He promises things that seem big but in reality are really small. W10,000 is $10 dollars..... haha  I was thinking about that. How someone who does not understand what Wons are would be really confused and probably excited to spend that much.  I feel that the Devil works the same way a lot of the time.  He promises temporary thrill without any sustainable happiness.  I am so grateful for the gospel that allows us to distinguish from real happiness and satan's counterfeits.
PS being a missionary makes you think deep... about EVERYTHING!

Quotes well funny 

Me: I knew of this one guy whose name was Abinidi Burns
Elder Besinger: What the? Did his parents name his brothers Shadrach, Meshack and Abindigo? and make their middle name didn't?

Patience. gah. ya its back. I love it.
I had a really cool experience with a struggling member the other day.  They called and I felt prompted to share D & C 121:7 and as I shared the scripture I felt like it was God sharing that scripture with me. :) it was a super cool experience :)

By the way, I was transferred and I am training the Sweetest, most humblest sister ever. She is from the Philippines.


 Bishop gave us permission....

Super Heros!

Exchanges and the Fun

May 1, 2016


Well this week I went on an exchange with the amazing Sister Phillips!!! She is awesome!! She served on the military base for 5 transfers!!!! Which is the english speaking part of the mission. and her Korean is still pretty good! She is an awesome teacher and has so many cool stories from the post!!! So glad I was able to learn from her.

One fun thing though...
She hasn't been to a Korean meal in a while... haha and we had already eaten when someone invited us to eat.  Lets just say it was a struggle.  We started off with some rice cake which to be fair we were both dehydrated and this stuff was really really dry. I couldn't even swallow and we had to find a way to get all of it down. but i did ask for water in a very sneak way haha. but then there was main course! Super good. There is this part of Korean culture... it doesn't matter how full you are, you never reject eating more food at a meal... and every time I accepted more food sister Phillips looked at me like she was going to lunge over the table hahaha love her to death. She did so well . soogosoogo!

Quote of the week
If our jong is stronger than her fear of water, we have one! (baptism)- Sister Ooju

Language fails
It's not a lost in translation... it is just sad... I forgot the words to I am a child of God in english... My comp went to harmonize with a descant and I couldn't remember the original words or tune... but we sang it in Korean and I could do it fine........ Struggle bus.......

Tribute to my sister
HEY Sister Shayley Shaver!
Congratulations on returning with honor!!! I am so proud of what you have accomplished! You have done such a great work and brought so many people closer to Christ! :)  I love you!!!
Obviously there is more... but alas time.

We did some music proselyting.  Our mission president put 2 of the 3 most brilliant musical minds I have ever known and put them in the same companionship! They are rocking it!!! So cool! Hopefully we start seeing results from it.

I love everyone!!! Keep working hard :)
