o the land of jahoon

ha well hello there my long lost family!
Ok to clear up some things, joo an is a village....compared to seoul ha but it's still bigger then provo. so no, sadly im not ramboing it mom....maybe one day they will send me to the rice patties so i can get some big fat rice cheeks ha but not today! next,.....we lost NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.... patience is coming into play with me and my cougars..... AHHHH why would we let it all slip in the fourth! gosh do i have to start praying for every game like i did in 7th grade?! I would love to see the pictures of the jerseys and the stadium. that would be so sweet.
Well we have really focused our efforts and I feel so blessed to be in this area. I'm preparing it for its glorious rising! literally im just going crazy with the amount of work here to do! I LOVE IT! staying super busy is awesome!!!!! I talk to EVERYONE! and yes i scare EVERYONE! this one lady in our ward litterally almost has a heart attack everytime she sees me.... some people think that people my size are like myths or something. But it is an amazing contacting tool so im grateful!
Wanna share a quick spiritual experience I had and of course it was related to conference. So of course General Conference as a missionary is completely different! WOW I literally felt like the spirit sat in the room and gave us revelation as we watched and listened to the words of our living prophet, apostles and leaders. It strengthened and confirmed my testimony so much that we have a living prophet. He recieves direct revelation from Heavenly Father and heading his counsel and the apostles' allows me to continue on my quest to eternal life. Anyways, I feel like I recieved alot of inspiration and revelation regarding mission work from President Thomas S. Monson. When he shared his experience about interviewing with the most successful missionary in europe and the missionaries key was, "picturing everyone he met in baptismal clothing and finding the joy of the Gospel." Man that hit me, because I do that sometimes but not everytime. It is so easy to just be talking to a guy who is coughing smoke and cancer lungs in my face and picture them not as they are but as they can become. So arfter conference ended we went street contacting and that is exactly what I did, i tried to not only show sincerity but to have christlike love in my heart to care for the people as he would. As I talked to people i felt like i had much more success because the spirit was litterally right there with me testifying to the people's hearts.  I know that in order to truly want to help others come into the gospel you must first find your own love of it.
In fact DEVIN YOU MUST PREPARE NOW! It literally makes me want to cry when i hear that you are reading the book of mormon with brons and gaining a testimony of it. That is something that really will make my day and week and month and year because coming to know the book of mormon is true is key to testimony and also key to going down the path of conversion. Devin, the road to get on a mission will be laden with temptations and trials that you will not even believe but, through the prayer of faith and the guidance of the holy ghost you can become ready to harvest the souls of God's Children. Do not take missionary preperation lightly.
Ok other good news um wow ward is nice! love them, still a bit shaky, really small but im gonna fix dat so no worries. I proselyte like a mad man! I have alot of amazing examples out here so im grateful, in fact some of my good brothers in the work are Elder Clearwater, and Elder Dallin Pope. They are such hard workers and i've been on exchanges with them both and we truly are giving our all to the Lord. You should say something to their families, nick clearwater went to school with me and dallin pope is from springville, his dad and brother are economic professors at byu, look em up ;) Today im gonna go throw the pigskin around and im SOOOOO PUMPED! man i need more workout time....o well, i might come home skinny but i will beat yall up with the Word of God!
