WEEK 62- MONDAY JULY 18 2016


This week was full of miracles!! I have come to realize that no matter the day or week it will always be full of miracles. Our lives are full of those tender mercies and it makes it easier to get through the harder times if we rely and recognize the little things that God gives us to let us know that we are not alone and He is there right beside us. This week I felt those tender mercies and I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to write them down everyday in my journal. My journal has been such a precious thing on my mission. I don't think I have missed a day writing about the tender mercies that I see throughout the day.

President & Sister Madsen 

They know how to enjoy food as much as I do

Sure love getting to know them.

I encourage anybody to write down those tender mercies that you see in your lives and when you look back on those you are so overwhelmed with God's love for you. He is there and loves each of us soo much.
Some of those tender mercies/miracles this week:

District Meeting: This week we had our district meeting but we call it our family meeting because our district is our family. I know that we are never to feel alone in this work so God sends us a district, or a companion. Without these people I don't know what I would do. I am so grateful for each one of the missionaries that I have had the opportunity to serve with. They have helped and strengthened me in ways that I can't even explain. I can't imagine not serving a mission and not meeting these people. 

Putting my artistic talents to good use. 

Just practicing for the upcoming music concert:)

YSA activity

Rita:Rita is a young mom that we met at the bank this week. I saw a baby in a stroller and it was an american baby! haha I was so surprised so I asked the mom if the dad was american and she said yeah.. and im Chinese. But she spoke fluent Korean. So we got a long right away and started talking a little bit. Then she left the bank and we were walking out of the bank a few minutes after and she was still outside of the bank so we said "hey lets go get ice cream!" she was soo happy and she took us to Baskin Robbins! She is the sweetest woman I have ever met. She just has that light. Then the next day we went to a buffet and the fountains with two member families with her. It was perfect.. she really got a long with the members and told us that she wants to come to church. She just sees this light in us and said she is so happy around us. But she is leaving for china next week for 2 months:( Its okay I know that we were suppose to meet her for a reason and when she gets home we will meet her for sure and she said she will come to church! This was such a miracle to have met her and to learn to rely on Gods timing as well. We dont know for sure what is going to happen when she gets home from China but its a time to exercise our faith and rely on what God has in store for her! 

Our sweet new friend Rita

She is gorgeous!!

Had a blast spending the day with her.

This baby's eyes.

Grandpa: This week I got two letters from my grandpa and he wrote about his family and his past in the church. Like when and where he was baptized. So I have had the feeling to continue to call him and treat him like I would treat an investigator haha. Just to always follow up with him and just tell him that I love him. Two days ago I called him when we were eating dinner and he told me that he was committing to going back to church. Sunday night I called him again to see how church was and he said "I went to church Sydney!! it's been 40 years.. and i went!" 
haha it was so cute. I am so proud of him and the effort that he is doing to get back to church. It just is a miracle alone knowing that he is a member. I had no idea that he was baptized and so just the opportunity I get to help him get active again has been such a blessing to me. I love my Grandpa and my family so much and I just want them to be happy. I don't have much time left in Korea and so I wan't to make every second count. I am so grateful for the decision to serve a mission!

Fountain fun

Oh my cute kids.

He is the coolest kid around.

I love you all so much and pray for you everyday! Thank you also for all your prayers for me and your support. I hope you all have a great week and recognize the tender mercies that Heavenly Father sends us everyday!
