I'm so happy!!!! Sept. 14, 2015

ahhh this week was so good!!! we were able to see some really amazing
things!!! First off we were able to have a baptism!!!! Sister Go YuMin
got baptized sunday night. It was such a special experience for
everyone. She is so prepared. I was able to teach her from the first
so it was really cool to be able to see the change in her from the
start to now. She has a light around her all the time that others are
able to see. Even though it is hard to communicate with her I feel
that I have a conection wiht her it is a really good feeling! I was
also able to write her a letter in korean that I feel she will like.
It was crazy to see the letter i gave her because it was alll in
Korean!!! adn i could understand it all... ahhh so weird!! haha but it
was a reallly good experience. We were also able to have sister Hurley
come. taht was reallly good because we were the ones that taught her
from the start. We had two really good talks that we were able to feel
the spirit so strong.  we also had two misical numbers they were
really good. it is amazing to see how music can bring the spirit into
the room. She only had to get baptized once so that was good! adn then
we had the branch write letters to her adn were able to give that to
her.  she shared her testimony and the end as well adn it was reallly
good she was able to feel the spirit so strong. I reallly feel that
she will continue to progress.  we also had some snacks after and she
was able to talk with the members adn get to know them better. It was
so good!!! we also gave her a nice BoM and D&C  it was really good!
earlier that day she came to church and after we were able to spend
the day with her adn we were able to watch the restoration video it
was really good i think it helped her understand the restoration a lot
better! Ahhh she is so cute i wish that all of oyou could meet her!!!
hahaha oh also with week we went and got dessert called Bing Su 빙수  it
was really good we were able to have a good time wiht her adn help
both of us get to know her better.

deep sea fish with the little light!!!!! ahhh crazy right!! I ate that
kind of fish. it was in sauce and was really spicy!!! I had to eat so
