Happy Thanksgiving 11-25-14

On Sunday the mission President asked to have the names of every sister that hasn't attended a temple sealing (marriage). We will all have the apportunity to attend one! Today I will go to the sealing of a woman from Pakistan and a man from Spain. The couple wont have many guests because they are foriegn, so they welcomed 18 sister missionaries to attend. President Poulsen is organizing a way for everyone who has never seen a sealing to go to one sometime during their mission. Since we teach guests about the temple and what it is used for daily through a model replica of the SLC Temple, he wants us to better understand what we are talking about. So it makes sense. I am so excited to attend! Not everyone in the assigned group that I am in has pday today, but I still want to go even if it is pday. Sister Oh however is on exchanges because she will be able to have another chance to attend a sealing.
Zone activity last week was so much fun! The Moore's were so kind to host our zone. They have a cool house. They have an ottoman made out of real zebra! I need to make up my mind if I am all save the animals or all for furniture made out of them...
Earlier this week Sister Oh and I were able to show a member around with her friend who was visiting from Georgia. The tour went very well and the woman was very interested in learning more. While at the Christus statue I invited her to take a free copy of The Book of Mormon and she was super excited to take it that I wasn't sure how to respond to her energetic and excited response. It was a great teaching experience though.

Clayton Christensen came and spoke with our mission last week. And today we had Brother Kay from the missionary department come and speak to us about the HE IS THE GIFT campaign. You need to watch the video, here it is:
We have been able to teach so many people lately. With the lights on their will be an entire new atmosphere to teach in.
For Thanksgiving we are going to members homes! Each companionship has been assigned a home and the members will pick us up at Temple Square. The square will close 12-6pm and then regular hours around that. SO FUN!

Doctrine & Covenants 78:19
"And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more."

 The Savior is the sweetest. I am so grateful for the Savior, He is why I am serving a mission and He is who has given me strength every single day I've been here. Thank you everyone who has been of support as well--I am grateful for you too!

Much love, 
Sister Price

Hi 11-18-14

Sister Oh and I have had a great week. We were able to find two new investigators while in the teaching center before coming to email today.
Zone Activity is today and we will be going to Elder and Sister Moore's home. They are a senior couple serving as the secretaries of our mission.
Last night we took a Korean tour together, I am starting to naturally bow when we meet Korean people.
Sister Oh has been trying to teach me more Korean, but I forget it all very quickly.
On Sunday we attended Music and The Spoken Word! It never gets old. In the picture you can see our roommate Sister Worthen (the Kiwi) trying to get in. The mission is going so well! To be honest I don't really know what else to say in my emails these days. 

Love you all though!

This past week we have been busy with exchanges. I especially enjoyed being on exchanges with Sister Escobedo at Welfare Square. We took several tours, but also were able to be hosts in the Bishop Storehouse. Everyone we helped had Spanish order forms so Sister Escobedo and the guest enjoyed laughing at my pronunciation. It was fun.
While on exchange with Sister Polanco we took a family from Florida (originally Puerto Rico) around the square. They were very interested in learning more and will keep in touch with us.
At a training I was able to give instruction about companionship unity. I was able to connect my lesson to Nutella. Any excuse for chocolate, right? I am working on self mastery now and set a goal to not have chocolate until I get home (at least). I wonder how long that will last.
Sister Oh and I have had a lot of success teaching and contacting people in the teaching center (basically a calling/computer center). The square is slower than usual these days, but that will pick up once the holiday lights turn on.
The other day we were talking to a member who said "So do you just walk around the square all day?" Now I need to practice humility because of the slightly sassy way that I responded. It wasn't mean though! Just a little sassy.
Sister Oh is teaching me Korean. So far I can say:
It's a dog
It's a bird
It's a tree
Thank you
The first three aren't really helpful. You never know though. One day I could be in Korea and save someones life with the first three! Probably not though.
Well I love you all!

If God is your co-pilot then switch seats 11-4-14

Oh! Sister Oh from Korea is my missionary companion now :) We are assigned to nothing specific, which is great! We have desk assignments, square time, and time in the teaching center like everyone else. But nothing specific like Beehive House, Fleet, or Welfare Square. My district is great! In my district are two other companionship's. Sister Polonco (Guatemala), Sister Armendariz (Mexico), and Sister Jarvi (Finland) who is in her first transfer and being trained by Sister Escobedo (Mexico) who I was training a year ago! I was so surprised to have her in my district, but it is awesome!

I am excited to be go on exchanges with Sister Escobedo since we were already companions :) Plus, she serves at Welfare Square 3x a week, so I will get to go on exchanges there at least once this transfer.
Being with Sister Oh is great! She is in her 3rd transfer now, but is so ready to work. I am very lucky to have her as my companion.
For Halloween we went to the Temple as a mission, it was a very special experience.
Fleet was fun at times, but I don't miss it. I am grateful for the experience, but it was much more work than I thought it would be so it is nice to be more of a missionary without fleet as my assignment now.
My roommates are Sister Worthen (New Zealand) and Sister Rasheed (Pakistan). Sister Rasheed is in her 2nd transfer of being trained. We wrapped Sister Rasheed up in "spider web" and she hid in Sister Sherratt's closest and scared her. She also scared Sister Oh, but that wasn't planned...just conveniently humorous.
Sister Oh and I have been having countless miracles talking to great people on the square. Everything is going well.
I love you all, 
Sister Price
