Hiiii we had such an amazing week! We have also had spring weather the past few days so thats amazinnng... although we heard from here on out it will reach up to -20. Bring it! We are excited because this week for pday we finally are going to Marina's Mexican restaurant!! She used to work in the Seoul, South mission but just got switched to somewhere near my greenie area. Seriously Mexican food! It's been so long. Excited is an understatement. Also I am inspired by Marina every time I see her! She is so amazing!!~

I don't have much time but will close with my 3 favorite quotes of the week. 

1). "There may be more churches in Korea than Starbucks." (Literally. One every corner) -Our investigator 제윤지

2.) “If you could see yourself as your Heavenly Father sees you, you would never act the same." - unknown...

3.) “Every attempt to reflect upon the Atonement, to study it, to embrace it, to express appreciation for it, however small or feeble it may be, will kindle the fires of faith and work its miracle towards a more Christlike life. It is an inescapable consequence of so doing. We become like those things we habitually love and admire. And thus, as we study Christ's life and live His teachings, we become more like Him." - Tad R. Callister

Love you all! Have a good week!
Sister Davis!!

Today in Korea I am officially 23 years old. In Korea they all gain a year on January 1st, rather than their birthdays. So happy new year and happy birthday too I guess! This morning to celebrate we hiked 북한산 "North Korea Mountain." I can't believe it has already almost been one year since the last time I hiked it... so much has changed. I am so forever grateful for 2016. A year ago in the MTC, I could not anticipate all of the amazing experiences I would have and incredible people I would meet who would change and inspire me, bring me to love a new people and culture in Korea, and help me realize what is most important and special in this life.

This week we met our investigator from Vietnam, who is only 19 years old, so cute (can speak a little English and a little Korean) and moved to Korea to study for 4 years. She started reading the Book of Mormon and noticed as Nephi prayed, he was able to have an answer and "conviction" (확신) that it was true. As we taught the Restoration lesson, her eyes got huge with excitement as she said, "I have 'conviction' too! I know why Joseph Smith needed to be a prophet. I want to read Book of Mormon from 'here' *flips to front of Book* to 'here' *points to back and points* and share it with my family... then the whole world." She is so cute! I know that the Book of Mormon is true. When we read it, we are happier. We can find direction, answers, and feel God's true, unconditional love for us. I know that Heavenly Father loves us and will answer our prayers as we trust in the promise in Moroni 10:3-5. We can all have "conviction" too.

Happy New Year! As they say in Korea, "Receive many blessings in the New Year!"
