Hello Family and Friends,So this week was ok. I have done a lot of growing, and learning. I have learned that when there is a problem in a relationship you have to talk. ignoring or avoiding the issue doesn't help it just makes it worst. another thing is that there is more ways then one to communicate. Like I said in my letter last week my companion is from Hong Kong so not only do we look different we grew up in different cultures. She is so obedient and doesn't question anything. she does as she is told and i love that about her. it makes things easy for her, but for me i have to know why we have some rules and in the Seattle Mission (the best mission ever!!!) they have a lot of rules and i have a harder time just doing as i am told. and there's some things we have to work through but we have amazing leaders and Heavenly Father is well aware of me and sister Leung. We were put together for a reason and i need to learn and grow from her and visa versa.
We have a mission choir and i am in it. we are practicing "a child's prayer " it sounds really good, in my stake we have a Korean branch so all of the missionaries in this zone are going to learn "i am a child of God" in Korean. I am so excited!!!!!!
I love being a missionary!!! there is honestly no way to fully explain how much i love the church of Jesus Christ. I am so happy and the knowledge that i gain from the spirit just makes me even happier. Families can be together forever! Jesus Christ knows me and loves me all the same my good my bad and my ugly he loves it all. Joseph Smith did see God the father and Jesus Christ! The Book of Mormon is the word of God! I don't have to guess and hope that these things are true I don't believe these things are true I know that they are true my faith has helped me gain knowledge and i am so thankful for that. I love you all so very much and if you are having a hard time be specific when you pray tell Heavenly Father how you feel and what you are having a hard time and you need to have faith that he is listening and you will feel his arms around you know that we are all Gods children.
Love Sister Whetten
