Week 12 in Gwangju
Today is raining, you all know what that means. Because Koreans are deathly afraid of the rain they scatter like rats or else everyone goes out to buy an umbrella. The umbrellas can only do so much though because really when it rains it pours. However, it is still beautiful and we made traditional Korean cake, went ice skating and other things since so many of the missionaries in our area will be going home next week.
I am really excited because our family is really starting to progress, the mother came out to church last week and the two girls love to read from the Book of Mormon children's book that we gave them. It is still a challenge to get the entire family together at once, but we are working on it.
At Zone Conference yesterday something that really hit me was about happiness. President Perriton was talking about the plan of salvation and how God's purpose is to bring us back to him and give us glory. So what is glory? The more I thought about it the more I realized that really it has a lot to do with happiness. If Heavenly Father wanted more wealth, more planets, more knowledge, he wouldn't have had to create us, but when we do the right things, make the right choices and really progress in life than he receives a lot of happiness from our happiness. So now when I read I have been trying to replace the word "glory" with the word "happiness".
Not much other news, I'm too soaking wet to really feel up to typing much more, but I hope that you are all doing wonderful.
Love you all,
