상당 Week 1.‏

Hello from Sangdang! Chungjeo is really fun and a really old city. Sister Marsden is also my kindred spirit and my best friend. I knew her in the MTC and always thought that she was the coolest. Now we are serving together and everything is realy spiritual and uplifting and we are working and having so much fun. Marsden trivia: Her parents are vegan. Her Dad works for the government so she has lived in like 9 foreign countries. She eats olives from the can and has really good critical thinking skills. Also for our first comp study she talked about Hitler and propoganda. Five stars for Sister Camille Marsden.

Im not quuuiiiite settled into my area yet btu Im getting there. I was transferred to the lowest stat producing zone in our whole mission so everyone is a bunch of strssballs and apparently President calls the Zone Leader like everyday. Yikes. Positivity! Sister Marsden and I are going to see a lot of success in this area so all is well. Also we have been proselyting machines and talk to everybody we see. I think we might have talked to like a thousand people (including the Korean Kelly Clarkson. In the words of Sister Marsden.)

For those of you who are worried (probably just Mom) I went to the doctors and they told me I have bronchitis. And if I dont take the medicine they gave me then I will get pneumonia and they told me that I definitely dont want pneumonia.
'Take your medicine Sister Pappa.'
'But I feel like a drug addict.'
'You constantly forget to take your medicine and when you do you refuse to take it. Thats the exact OPPOSITE of a drug addict.' 
hahahahahahahhelpme i hate drugs. 

ok, spiritual things time. ive had really good scripture study lately. I dont have time to share everything that I have learned but lately I have been thinking about imrpovement and how to become more like our Savior. This morning I spent and hour studying these two verses in D&C:
41 No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned;
 42 By kindness, and pure knowledge, which shall greatly enlarge the soul without hypocrisy, and without guile—
If you havent already, I highly suggest that you study these and determine your standing with God. I found it to help me remember the covenants that I have made with my Father in heaven. Above all else, remember that he is all merciful, just, and loving, and can give us all the power we need to become more like Him. I love that we have access to this power from heaven when we act in accordance with His laws. 
I love this gospel!

Love you all!
Sister Kelsey Rae Pappa
