Photos!

Making cookies during a member visit. The kids started putting cookie dough on our faces soon after that photo haha!

 Playing a game during 서광주 Sisters' Conference


 Pepero Day Sisters' Conference


Having Sister Boone's favorite Korean food "동지죽."  Sweet bean soup with glutinous rice balls.


At 큰언니 모임= older sisters' meeting where the older relief society sisters get together for a meal and spend time together. We went to this fancy restaurant where they gave us three course meals. It was the best meal I've ever had since I got here. Everything was so pretty and delicious. Sister Boone didn't know that there was a 3rd course which was the main course so she filled herself up with the first two course... not good... haha


One photo is of the primary kids singing 'head shoulders knees and toes' yesterday. We taught them at church yesterday. They are sooo cute. One of them was really fiery but still cute haha. 


It was SOOO windy!! We even felt it was dangerous to be outside so we went and did doorknocking. My umbrella got dissected in seconds haha. It was so funny. My companion and I were 'lolling' for so long. Glasses and rain doesn't go well together haha.

A Special Experience

Dear friends,

This we had some good days! We have this investigator Sister Oh. She is a referral from our Stake President's wife. She has been friends with her for a long time and they work together. She has observed the good that comes from our church for a long time, especially on families. She really is so prepared. I couldn't believe how prepared she is and I even was a little suspicious... She asked us when she can get baptised! haha that never happens. She is such an angel. She wants the Gospel in her family and she has sincere desires to come closer to Jesus Christ. We met her three times and each of those discussions were so Spiritual. Last Friday, we had a discussion on the Restoration. It was a special experience.

It's getting really cold here in Korea. The temperature dropped so low suddenly.

Today is P-day (Preparation-day) and we have a Sisters' Conference in Naju which is an hour bus ride away. The sister missionaries in our zone and getting together and celebrating Pepero Day together for fun.
It'll be fun. I'll send photos next week.

Talk to you again next week.

Sister Sangji Lee.

"Little by little"

Dear blog...

Honestly, it's been a bit hard lately... Quite a lot of investigators dropping us or we have to drop them. It's heart-breaking but my companion and I decided we will be more grateful for all the blessings we do have in this time.


My companion is in her last transfer of her mission. She will be finishing in December. She says she has never worked so hard and seen so little progress. However, we know that as we are exactly obedient and as we are working hard to improve ourselves we will see more miracles. 

I think I'm just starting to learn how to do missionary work. Little by little. (2 Nephi 28:30, Book of Mormon) I'm just starting to recognising the Spiritual Promptings to talk to certain people. I'm just starting to recongnise when I'm teaching with the Spirit and when I'm not. I'm just starting to get more and more out of personal and companionship study time. I'm just starting to recognise more of those things that drive the Spirit away from me. I'm just starting to recognise my weaknesses that I was oblivious to before. It's slow but it's exciting.

Last Friday, we had another Halloween party just for our ward. Our members brought so many of their non-member friends along. It was great! We are trying to see ways we can meet with them again.

Talk to you again next week~

Sister Sangji Lee. 이상지 자매.

Dear Sangji's Blog readers and friends,
Here is the latest update from her companion! SO funny quirks about Sister Lee: She really is dramatic, but in a good way, her sad times are really sad, but her happy times are really happy. She is a bit sensitive which makes her a really good friend to have if you are feeling bad and you need sympathy. She also oddly enough attracts 할모니s (Korean grandmothers) and they LOVE her and always tell her how beautiful she is and pat her on the bottom. What a cutie!

FUNNY EXPERIENCES: Sister Lee has kind of a hard time learning names and faces sometimes too.  She came into Home plus and I said hi to some of the workers there (two Young adults in our ward) and she got so excited that these two supposedly strangers were so nice to missionaries. She soon found out that they were members she had met yesterday and we all had a nice laugh. Poor thing so much new all at once.All in all I am very blessed to be serving with Sister Lee and know that she has a great big heart. She loves this work and is a good example of hard work!

Have a wonderful week!
