Hello everyone! Sounds like you are all doing good! That was super cool and weird to see Lexi coming home from her mission! I can’t believe she is already home! I know she was a great missionary and that seemed like so much fun to be reunited! Now Grandma only has two more grandchildren out to worry about! haha! Everyone seems great though! I miss you all and am happy you all seem to doing good! I have a few things to talk about this week but not much! So I will just jump right into it! 

The first is of course Rak Won Lee! We are still meeting and he is still doing great! The highlight this week was we had a member present lesson with him at a members house and dinner with them as well! It was really great and we talked about Lehi’s vision! It went great and he is still doing great! He actually planned to come to church despite the huge Holiday on Sunday, but his family went somewhere  and he had to call and tell us he wasn’t going to make it back on time! But I just talked to him on the phone and we will meet him tonight! He is awesome!

The next thing I wanted to talk about is the super cool holiday here! It is the biggest in Korea! It is called Chuseok! It was great! But missionary work was slow! The actual holiday was Sunday but it is celebrated for 4 days, Friday through Monday! For Chuseok we had a conference on Friday. We went bowling and then had a fun conference! We learned about Chuseok and Korean history and church history stuff and it was awesome! The next day, we woke up and it was my favorite day of the year! DEEP CLEANING DAY!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited and oh what a day it was! We cleaned and cleaned and it felt so good and everything got cleaned and it was so rewarding and our bathrooms were disgusting so Elder Fisher and I cleaned them and I only almost threw up 5 times! And I like to think I have a pretty strong stomach but it was disgusting.  Once we got into the cracks and drains and pipes! Haha but now…. oh now, our bathroom is white, and it is so clean you could eat off the floor! It is great! The house is clean and fresh and it was just so much fun! I loved it!  We had a grand time! On Sunday not many people came to church but it was fun with the people who were able to come! It was a pretty fun weekend all in all!

This week was good, It was different and a little slow but good! I have studied about the atonement a lot recently, mostly because I have started to understand just how important it is and how incomprehensible it is, but trying to understand how it was made and how it affects us and plays a part in our lives brings so many blessings and love and comfort into our lives, I understand how the atonement was a sacrifice of the savior, he sacrificed himself, and his father allowed him to be sacrificed. God loves each of us so much that he allowed his Son, to be sacrificed for us. What a testament to the infinite love of our Father in Heaven and his son Jesus Christ! Just because sometimes we sin and make mistakes which are always evil, that does not make us evil. Evil action does not make us and Evil person, there is always hope because of that atonement! The most terrifying and difficult tasks and trials can be overcome through his grace and mercy, when we don’t know what to do, he does. I know God feels my feelings, it is through him that I am sustained during the hardest of weeks, he is there, he listens, and he knows! I know Heavenly Father lives and loves us, I know Jesus Christ is his son and came, suffered died and rose again for us! I know this gospel is true!

Love,

Elder Houston
