Family is everything to her.

Happy 20th Birthday Sydney L. Tanner

I don't even know where to start this email, to try and put this week into a short email might be a little difficult but I will try! 

I've had God's love constantly throughout this week. There were miracle after miracles this week. I don't know what even happened....

So it all started at the beginning of last week where we had no investigators and so we spent a lot of our time trying to find people and putting up English Advertisements. All last week we were able to get a lot of calls from the advertisements and set up a lot of appointments for the following week. So, we were praying really hard that they wouldn't fall through and we would be able to still meet them. The week started and everything seemed to just work out perfectly. Everyone wanted to still meet and then they wanted to meet more than once during the week too!
As a District we were thinking of ways to help find investigators and make our English class better. We decided to start a new English Class. Throughout the week we did a bunch of proselyting activities and handed out our number so that we could get a lot of new people to come to our class. We had so many people call and were interested! When we were putting our english advertisements up around the town a man stopped and was like "oh free english?!" so he took an advertisement and walked away. Then when the english class was about to start, that same man walked in with his wife and little son!!! That was the biggest miracle. And my companion and I were in charge of teaching the beginner level of English so we taught the little kids. It was the funnest time ever. I might consider teaching English like that for a major when I get home... ah its just crazy how everything seems to just be falling into place in a matter of 1 week.
Another unexpected miracle was we were meeting this one lady and her 10 year old son because she wants him to learn english and she doesn't really have that much gospel interest and so it was kind of hard to teach both. So we brought the elders with us to teach the son English and we would focus on the mom to teach her the gospel. While we were there, there was another little girl running around us, so interested that we were foreigners. So she sat down next to us and her mom was like oh im sorry and then we started talking to the mom and we are now meeting the mom 3 times a week, starting next week. And the mom has been to our church before, one of her best friends is a member but moved to Seoul and when she moved she hasn't really had any other contact with our church since!

When I came here I had a really hard time in the beginning and was a little nervous. But as I put my fears away and took this as an opportunity to learn and grow. I've truly come to understand my purpose in doing this work.We had absolutely zero investigators now we have 8!!! like what just happened!!! I have never experienced anything like this before! I really feel like I am doing missionary work now and it makes me so happy! I prayed so hard and was really worried about everything coming to this new area but, God has blessed us way more than I could ever imagine! I lOVE MISSIONARY WORK!!!!
My companion is so great, all the sisters are so cute! They told me yesterday they want to be just like me hahah. it was the cutest thing ever. Before I came they didn't feel like they were doing real missionary work but they said as soon as I came it all changed. I really appreciated those words and made me realize that I am SUPPOSE to be here. Everything is going great and we are just working really hard to help all of these people to progress towards baptism!

 I can't put into words the joy that you get from missionary work. Its an undescribable feeling sharing this gospel! I love you all and thank you for all the Birthday wishes!!! I know that I will have the best Birthday ever!! 

Korea had No idea what Goodness was heading their way.
