Thank you all so much for the packages and letters! You are all so awesome! 

We had a huge mission Christmas devotional where we all did skits it was so much fun. Our ward Christmas party was great, we combined with the Chinese ward! We sang oh holy night as a musical number as a District and with a Chinese companionship. It was super good!
Well I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas! 

I love you all! Have a great week! And New Years!

Dec 12, 2016- The New District (A Surprise!)

So this last week went by pretty quickly! The thing is I just got
smacked in the face today! I got some big news this morning :) Elder
Ha and I have just finished training this week and are heading into a
Transfers tomorrow. Elder Kim will be leaving us and Elder Ha just got
called to train a new Korean Elder! I just got called this morning and
will be the new District Leader.... I was shocked! We have two rookies
one is training and one is District Leader :) haha I will have a great
experience but I know it will be hard! I will have to work even harder
now to lead my District!

So that is the big news this week! I will tell you how it all goes
next week after we finish a week haha I hope I do alright :) this
preparation day was cut short because I will be going to the temple
Saturday with our Branch! So Saturday I will be able to email again :)

I learned a lot this Transfer. A lot about patience and diligence. We
are all given trials to test our faith. Always remember that God will
never give us a trial that we can not handle. I know sometimes it
might seem impossible that this one trial is too hard. Let me just
say, if we use Christ's Atonement he can help us overcome all. I know
I will need his strength and help these next few transfers as I am put
into a new assignment!

I love you all! Have a great week!

Dec 5, 2016- Last Week of Transfers

So as it says in the title, it is the last week of the Transfer! Wow
time does fly by! This next Transfer we will be getting a new Korean
missionary. So that means either Elder Kim, Ha, or I could be
training! So it will be interesting to see what happens!

This week was the start of December, so that means we got to start our
Christmas initiative!! "Light the World" you can find the video we
show on! We made a sweet poster that we would walk around
with on the street!! It actually worked very well and a lot of people
just stared at it haha. It kind of looked like little kids made it,
but hey it was effective! :)

It was a fun week! And tomorrow..... we have a baptism in the Korean
Branch!!! It is the sisters investigator her name is 김동화. She is
honestly so amazing! She speaks perfect Korean and Chinese. She is a
person that has totally committed herself into following Christ and
his example! She is so amazing! I'll send pictures of it next week!

I hope everyone's week is a great one! I invite all of you to go check
out that video! Remember the true meaning of Christmas this year!

I love you all!!!!
