WEEK 59- MONDAY JUNE 27 2016

Suncheon Bay

I am not really sure how to put all my thoughts and feelings into an email right now but I will try my best. This week went by super fast. We had like 15 lessons this week with members, less-actives and investigators, so that I could get to know them and introduce myself. I really love this ward so much. All the members have been so loving and welcoming. It has made transferring a little bit easier. 

 On Wednesday we had a Farewell party for Shin's. Half the mission came together and we got to say goodbye to them and sing them a song. Its really weird to think that we will have a new mission president next week. It will be good to experience something new. In our zone we are the only set of sisters with like 12 elders hahah. It is quite fun. So when we walked into our zone meeting before the party all these elders were like ohhh Sister Tanner!! They were excited to have me in the zone. I haven't met some of them before but they all said they have heard that I am such an amazing missionary and way good at Korean.. haha I don't know where they are hearing this false information but transferring to new areas has never been easy for me. So when the Elders made me feel right at home it gave me a lot of peace and comfort, that this is where I am suppose to be right now.

My homies Elder Warren and Hiatt

 I have learned a lot this week. And I know that I will continue to learn and grow this transfer. My companion and I are doing better than last week so that is a good sign! I know that so many of our weaknesses are being shown to us during this transfer. My companion and I were talking on the bus yesterday and she told me that she has never had a companion like me before.. I am not really sure what that entirely meant at the time but she said that she is learning so much from me. I know that all my companions can't be exactly like me and we all have our differences but we both are suppose to be in this area together for a reason. I know that as we work together and love each other the work will go so much smoother. We already have seen so many miracles this week and continue to see them.

This Sunday we decided to fast for our investigators. There are 2 little girls that are a members friend in our ward that both have baptismal dates right now. But we have run into some problems with permission from their parents and they live in the country so getting them to church has been kind of a struggle. But we decided to leave it up to the lord and fast. Yesterday I really came to understand the importance of fasting. In our ward every 4th Sunday they have a huge meal after sacrament meeting.. and you know how much food is a temptation for me. haha So when I found out that they were having food and we were fasting my first thought was like "are you kidding me.. we couldn't have fasted next week?" haha. But when we sat by the piano with one of the elders that was also fasting with us, I really noticed how I wasn't hungry at all and that usually after I eat something I don't remember what I even ate the next day. SO what I am trying to say is that when we give up something that we temporally want at that moment and give ourselves to the Lord we see the blessings and Heavens doors are opened. That Sunday we were able to set another baptismal date with another members friend that came to church yesterday. They still are a little ways to actually get baptized because they are younger so they need permission from their parents. anyways.. I know that Heavenly Father is watching over us and he knows me and what I can do. 

Oh I just love the kids here.

Reminds me of someone at home:(

This week I studied a lot about Love, Charity and Humility. Yesterday in Church there was a common topic in all the meetings about Humility. And I knew that is what I needed to hear. As I humble myself and rely on the Atonement of Jesus Christ there is no room for worries, doubts or sadness. This transfer isn't going to be easy but that is not why I am here just to have things easy. Our Savior Jesus Christ did not have it easy when he died for me. I am so grateful for the blessings and comfort that the Atonement gives us. I love you all and thank you so much for your prayers this last week. I felt them and couldn't do this without your love and support!! 

Such beauty in this Gospel

I hope you all have a great week and finish off June with a bang!!!~~ ㅎㅎ Talk to you next week!!!

Sorry I don't have much time to write, but lets just say this week was a whirlwind of emotions. Haha 

Last Zone meeting in Suncheon

My last day with Sister Park

So sad we only had 1 transfer together

It was extremely hard to say goodbye to 순천 ㅠㅠ I have loved my time in Suncheon and I will always remember the members and investigators that I met in that area. I know I was suppose to be there for a reason.

I love this sweet couple.

When we went to say goodbye to our grandma, that probably was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I walked in and she just grabbed me and we sat there and hugged and cried. haha. I will miss her so much! I called her this morning just to check up on her and said.. "its Heno!!" (cuz she cant pronounce her "T's" and she just started crying and crying and was so happy to talk to me! I know that I was suppose to meet her. The Suncheon area is very special and I am so grateful that I got the opportunity to serve there.

These Grandmas made my time here so sweet.

We will meet again soon.

I knew that my time was coming to an end in Suncheon so when it was transfers I was praying and I had a feeling come to me that I could be going to Cheonan. 

Cheonan city.

Then the AP's called and said that I was going to Cheonan. haha. So I know that I am suppose to be here!~ Right now the transition has not been easy but the ward here is amazing. All the members are so sweet and showed me so much love yesterday. I am so excited to see what is in store for this ward and all the miracles that we will see!~ I gave a little talk to introduce myself in sacrament yesterday and every one thought my korean was soo good and all the relief society ladies were just stroking my hair and face and just telling me how pretty i was. hahah. I am so grateful for the love that they showed me. It gave me a lot of strength because its not easy going to a new area and starting over! 

Feels like home.


We had a transfer meeting too where I finally got to see Sister Kim and Sister Gordon!! It was so good to see them. This week on wednesday i will get to see them again too. The north part of the mission is coming together for a goodbye party for President shin!! I cant wait to see them again!! I love you all and thank you for all your love and encouraging words!! I am always praying for you and love and miss you so much!! have a great week!!! xoxo 

Finally reunited with my Sister Kim

So lucky they are now companions. Sister Gordon and Sister Kim

So blessed to have her in my life.

WEEK 57- MONDAY JUNE 14 2016

안녕하세요!! ^^

Sorry this email might be a little short, we just got our transfer calls and so i am a little all over the place and I dont really know what to do right now! haha. 

Another day at the gardens

We are continually finding new investigators to teach! I'm sorry I don't have much time to write! We all are a little crazy because of the new transfer and all the new changes!! I am excited to experience a new part of Korea and see what is in store for the remaining part of my mission! 

combined Zone Conference

Love these people.
Sisters time.

I have loved this area so much and will be so sad to leave!~ Suncheon has been such a big part of my mission and I will always remember what I have learned here, and all the people that I have met. I can't believe how fast my mission has gone by. But I have loved every single minute. 

Gave me some love.

I'm in love.

Took our Grandma to the Gardens.

This week we found some more people to teach and right now we have 3 investigators that all are Catholic so this week we learned a lot about our testimonies on the trinity and the Book of Mormon. I have such a strong testimony that anybody that reads the Book of Mormon and truly prays to know if it is true they will receive an answer that they cant deny. We have been trying to read the Book of Mormon a lot with our investigators to try and help them to understand the difference between God and Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. It is a magical book and everytime I read it I am so happy. I feel closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

Green Tea plantation gardens

Beautiful fields

my last selfie in Suncheon

This week we didn't have any appointments because they all of a sudden all canceled so we decided to take a trip to a farther area in our area to visit an investigator that the elders had met on the street the week before. She speaks fluent English because she has literally traveled the entire world. She said she met missionaries in australia and in seoul so she is familiar with our church. She is so amazing. She said she read the book of mormon but because she can learn so many languages and her mind thinks differently than other peoples she doesn't see the need for a religion. She thinks to much. but it was a really great opportunity to have met her. She took us to the beach and the famous Green Tea Plantation. SOO pretty!! ~ Great way to end off my time here in Suncheon! 

finally made it to the beach

I love the ocean

Happy as can be.

Selfie by the sea

LOVE YOU ALL!!~~ I will let you know how transfers go next week!! Wish me luck!!! Im coming for you 천안!!~~
