  1. 안녕히 계세요… Stay in Peace

    January 13, 2014 by Sister Roueche

    Yesterday, my wonderful, amazing Chungjang Ward threw me a party after church. But before I get to that, each Sunday morning for the past ten months I have stood by the front doors of the same church building welcoming the people that I love. Yesterday, even though it was my last Sunday in Korea and in Chungjang, it didn’t feel different.  (more…)

  2. Delicious Story Together Joy (Korean restaurant name)

    January 6, 2014 by Sister Roueche

    These past few weeks I’ve gone on lots of splits with different sisters in our zone to help them with this and that. A split usually lasts around 24 hours and during that time, I either go and work with a sister in her area, or she comes to my area and we work together while our companions are off doing missionary work in the other place.  (more…)

  3. 새해복많이받으세요! Receive many new year blessings!

    December 30, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    Last week was SO eventful, full of great missionary work, even with Christmas right in the middle. The feeling of Christmas joy really started on Christmas Eve Eve!  (more…)

  4. And to All a Good Night!

    December 23, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    On Friday, all the missionaries (all 156 of them!) from our mission gathered in Daejeon for the Mission Christmas Party!  Just like last year, we started off with a white elephant exchange.  And just like last year, I picked a great present, and just like last year it was stolen away from me.  (more…)

  5. All the little things

    December 16, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    This week was filled with so many great small things that I can’t think of where to start! Lately, I’ve been wondering if when my mission is over if I’ll keep talking about miracles all the time and noticing all the small inexplicable instances that happen, or if I’ll just jump back into the storm of life and leave that behind. Like this week, (more…)

  6. The Final Stretch

    December 9, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    Not to brag, but I am SO GOOD at making kimchi! Last week our investigator was going to make all of her family’s year supply of kimchi by herself. We offered to help because a) that’s too much work for just one person b) we knew we’d get to teach her afterwards and c) my companion has never made kimchi. Remember, she’s Korean! (more…)

  7. A Little Heaven on Earth

    December 2, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    Last weekend we saw a great miracle in Chungjeong ward. A little background for you to start. About a year and a half ago, Sister Cho was baptized. She met the missionaries and fell in love with the gospel. But, her parents were against it.  (more…)

  8. Just Sing Already!

    November 25, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    I’ll just share one quick story this week! We’ve been trying to help one of the women we meet come to understand the importance and the significance of the restored gospel in her life… and failing.  (more…)

  9. Sisters’ Conference, check!

    November 18, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    A few weeks ago the sisters in our mission were hit with devastating news. Sisters’ Conference was cancelled!  (more…)

  10. Eat the Bae (Pronounced “bay”)

    November 11, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    On Tuesday, I was on splits with Sister Brooksby, my MTC companion! We stopped by a member’s house on the way to another appointment, and I didn’t really have a message planned, but I felt like visiting them would be of great worth for Sister Brooksby and the family. (more…)
