This week has been awesome!! There has been so much going on and the area of bangoejin is being filled with the word!~! we have had alot of opportunities to share what Easter and the Atonement mean to us as we have had meetings with investigators members and other missionaries!!
this week we met with our recent convert (yesterday received aaronic preisthood) and his wife twice and taught about the importance of prayer and reviewed the plan of salvation and temple work with them yesterday at a members home!! we really were able to feel the Spirit reach out as the members bore testimony of the blessing of family history work and temple work in their lives and also as we talked about what really makes it all possible-the Savior and His Atonement!! #Because of HIM
This week we also met with a young investigator whose parents will not allow him to get baptized yet but the mom said that she would come to church after the up and coming testing period in schools- talked with them and got to use my family book to introduce you all!!!
This week we also had interviews and a zone meeting where the topics all centered around the Atonement and the many things that Christ has done for us and how our purpose as missionaries is tied in to that!! Really awesome meetings with lots of time to share and think about the many blessings we receive #BecauseofHIM!
Well on the more random side of things we were asked to clean up the outside of our church last week so ... got to do some weeding and such--so much fun!! and also checked the rat traps because it smelt terrible but nothing so we have to wait 3 more weeks and had an awesome Family Home Evening where we colored the Easter eggs together with members in preparation for Easter and our Branch Conference!! At our branch conference 2 investigators came 3 potential investigators came and 5 less actives were there!! This area really is on the high steps of hastening the work #Becauseof HIM!!! 
so if you havent noticed by now I have been able to watch the new video #BecauseofHIM and that has really tied in well with everything this week even up to this morning as I was reading Alma 41-42 talking about the necessity of the Atonement and the Mercy that we find as we use this gift that has been given to us!!! It truly has been another week of reflection of the many blessings that we receive because our Heavenly Father loves us!!! 
with that thanks for the great package and all the killer candy!!! will be enjoying that and already have as we have been emailing- dig the star wars easter eggs!! and although we didnt get the package in time to use that to color the eggs we can always do more-Who doesnt like em? haha
Well also thanks for the birthday wishes -- even though i have already been 21 in Korea for 4 months it will be fun to celebrate really turning 20 and getting one year younger!!!
