  1. JOY

    August 26, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    This week was so fun!  The temperature is cooling down, we met with some people who haven’t had time to meet with us, visited with lots of members, had lots of inspiration, and are just having a GREAT TIME!  (more…)

  2. Beach Day!!

    August 19, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    This past Thursday was Liberation Day in Korea! On August 15th, 1945, Korea was liberated from its long subjection to Japanese rule and dominion. So, in honor of the holiday, I got to go to the beach with the Chungjang Ward! (more…)

  3. “Jesus Loves Mormons”

    August 12, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    Last week we were walking from church to the closest bus stop when I saw a group of Philipino women up ahead, probably all leaving the nearby Philipino market and spending the day together.  All of a sudden one of them turned around and started to run/jog/skip towards us while shouting, “Jesus loves Mormons!”  (more…)

  4. Talking to Strangers

    August 5, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    I remember when I was little, I teased my mom all the time because she had no shame in talking to strangers; now, that’s my life.  But, so many times I feel like I walk away with a friend, no longer strangers!  (more…)

    July 29, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    Remember my post a few months ago “The Happiest Message on Earth?”  If not, read it right now. Go!


    OK, are you back? Yesterday, the beautiful and amazing woman Sister Lee that we met that day outside the church GOT BAPTIZED!!!  That’s RIGHT!  She was prepared, we didn’t mess anything up too badly, and so now she is clean as a whistle!  (more…)

  6. Whose Miracle Is It?

    July 22, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    You may have noticed that I don’t really complain and talk about the wonderful and difficult Korean language anymore.  I think as I’ve progressed and developed as a missionary and as a person, I’ve had less and less time to think about myself and all my “problems,” Korean being one of them.  (more…)

  7. It’s Really Hot Here

    July 15, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    People told me it’d be hot and humid here, but I just kept telling them that my hometown was just like Korea and I was used to hot plus 1000% humidity. Little did I know how unprepared I was.  (more…)

  8. And a Pinch to Grow an Inch!

    July 8, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! My birthday was last Tuesday! It’s crazy because while I’m on my mission I’ll miss two of all the best holidays: Birthday (last year, only 5 days after I entered the MTC it was my birthday!), Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween…only Valentine’s Day and Easter are spared the sacrifice. Well, there’s no sacrifice, it’s just spending these holidays in a totally different way that has absolutely nothing to do with getting, but instead giving. (more…)

  9. My one year mark is coming, going, GONE!

    July 1, 2013 by Sister Roueche

    That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters… As of Thursday June 27th, I have been on my mission for ONE WHOLE YEAR!  I thought I’d share with you some of what I’ve picked up in the time that I’ve spent away from the world on the Lord’s errand. (more…)
