Hey everyone! How was everyone's first week of 2017! Mine was pretty exciting with great weather out here in Korea. We had some great experiences from playing basketball with a lot of old people (and some young people) hitch hiking, eating some steak, and going all across our mission trying to figure out how to update our Visas haha. But we all made it through alright and we are doing well.
This week one of my favorite experiences was in our church meeting. Down here in the place where I am serving, we don't have a lot of members (about 10 people come to church including us 4 missionaries) so sometimes the Sunday meetings are a little... small. Honestly in the meeting, at first I was like, wow this is super small how can I feel the spirit in this small of a group? I also had some pretty discouraging thoughts about trying to rebuild the church down here. But as I was sitting in the meeting, the feeling that I felt is regardless of how few people come to church or how few people are doing the right thing, the best thing to do is always to follow God. I remember this scripture in the book of Matthew:
