I did it I conquered live octopus. It kinda tickles going down, and it honestly tastes like swallowing the ocean, but overall . . . not that bad. :)
Well this is the end or the beginning. Depends on how you look at it. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have had to serve in Korea. I have been pondering the phrase "endure to the end". It is frequently used in the bible and Book of Mormon. But that expression makes me a little sad... cause that word endure, as important as it is, can be misleading like it has to be really hard and/or really painful....... and I believe that God wants us to be happy. My favorite expression is Enjoy the journey :) So I have changed this expression to, Enjoy to the end! Cause life should be enjoyed.
The way we truly enjoy life is by following Christ and keeping His commandments. By doing this we can have his spirit to be with us and always maintain that peace that comes through keeping them. The spirit has given me so much guidance throughout my life and 10 fold on my mission.
Tender mercy of the Lord
So I had this weird feeling to put my hair in a side braid not really my thing. It's actually Sister Udall's thing and she rocks it, and I kinda felt nostalgic and put it in the side braid like she used to wear. Then we got on the subway, where I would usually try to talk to someone, but I felt like I needed to confirm this appt we had, while I was sitting down a man approached me and in english said,"I just want you to know that your efforts are not wasted here. You do more good that you know. I am not a member of your church, but I still benefit from your work." He held up some children's song books.. " You reminded me of a girl that served here and I just wanted you to know that." (we were right next to sister Udall's last area. at this point I had to get off the train, but it was just a miracle to see that all come full circle. Missionary or not missionary we make a difference, more of a difference than we may see in our time, but the impact is real and deeper than we will ever know. :)
See you this week!!!
