Are you from Utah?

May 10,  2015

For pday we went to a massive electric vehicle convention. Great day, definitely satisfied my inner tech geek side. Best part? We had to sign up and state the company we represented. So....we walked around all day with big "LDS Church" name tags. In addition to our missionary tags. And we found a guy from sweden who stopped us "Are you from utah?" niceeeee.

Elder Fulthorp and I have continued getting up early to study more. Definitely feeling the dividends. 

Transfer calls! I'm heading to Sinchon for my last two transfers! That's where the temple is. Smack dab in the middle of Seoul. TONS of people. Yessssss. 

Our adorable old man investigator, Brother Lee, came to church this week! He really really needs hearing aids, but a member sat by him and wrote tons of stuff down in a notebook for him to read. And they smothered him with love. He said "It's really a good system. Really feels like a family. Very warm." 

Picked up a pretty cool new investigator this week, Brother Joo-hyeong. He had some serious questions about repentance. Sounds like he's made some mistakes in his life and wants to be rid of them. "Can those things, those feelings, really go away?"

Yes. Yes they can. Because our Savior Jesus Christ bore the weight of all our sins, sorrows, transgressions, we can become clean from them. The burden of that guilt and shame can be replaced with peace and cleanliness. It's not as easy as just saying "I believe." but it's possible through the gospel Christ gave us. 

Repentance and Christ's atonement is a gift that blesses my life every single day. If keep falling short. But I keep reaching forward. Like brad wilcox said, "He doesn't fill the gap, He fills us." 

It's an incredible privilege to be able to bear that sacred testimony to people here! 

love you all!
