  1. Senior for a Day

    December 31, 2012 by Sister Roueche

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! Almost. Last week was pretty epic with Christmas and parties and loads of caroling all week, but I want to tell you about an awesome experience I had two weeks ago. (more…)

  2. A Special Christmas Broadcast

    Merry Christmas!!! I hope that you are all enjoying the wonders of this GREAT SEASON! My greatest present this year, besides the opportunity to be here in Korea, is that I get to talk to my parents on the phone! (more…)

    I am currently emailing from the post office across the street from my new apartment! [Gwangju map wiki]  And new it is! Nothing but dishes and furniture when we moved in. Slowly, thanks to the generosity of the elders already serving here and the local church members, we have collected some supplies and food.

With missionaries flooding the world, many places that haven’t had missionaries before or recently will go through what we are going through right now: a lack of hangers. Actually not being able to unpack was really the least of our concerns.

    Yesterday was Fast Sunday. For Mormons, the first Sunday of every month is set aside for abstaining from two meals and a attending special meeting at church where anyone can bare his or her testimony.

Fasting isn’t just starving though, we fast with a purpose in mind: a question or concern that we have for Heavenly Father. Our dedication to the fast and even our donation to help others shows Heavenly Father our humility and desire. I love fasting! (more…)
