I Have Been Defeated...


안녕하세요, 여러분!

Don't worry to much over my subject line.  I am only referring to the weather this week.  It was so freezing!  My friends at home will be surprised to know that even I was freezing.  We went outside to hand out flyers for English class on Saturday, and the street that we did it on was relatively pretty narrow, so it also acted as a wind tunnel.  About halfway through this activity, our district pretty much decided that we would just try to make people happy, because absolutely nobody was talking to us, and I really don't blame them. 

This week, we had transfers.  Elder Sol left, and was replaced by Elder 이호현 (Lee Ho Hyeon), who is an extremely kind person, and a very diligent missionary.  He is a zone leader along with Elder Eggleston, and our district leader is clear out in the 일산 district, because we are combined now.  It's a little interesting not having our district leader actually in our district, so there is still a little bit of confusion around there right now.  It's pretty interesting.  

This week, Elder Bradshaw got drafted into playing for the Easter Music Nights, and then drafted again by President to actually arrange a piece of music for the violin quartet.  So, as you can imagine, we spent a lot of time with that this week, so we were actually not able to meet with our investigator this week, sadly, but we are meeting with him tomorrow, so hopefully that goes well.  

On Tuesday, we had English Class.  Our district has recently started a children's class, so I take the intermediate class on Tuesdays now.  It was pretty fun.  There are some cool people in the intermediate class, that are definitely prepared.  We will be making sure to ask them about taking lessons pretty soon here.  We also taught English at a community center on Wednesday.  Bob came.  I don't believe I have talked about Bob yet.  He is pretty much the entire English class.  The missionaries found him about 3 or 4 years ago, and he has been with them ever since.  He has not received baptism yet, because he was not quite ready for it when asked.  He is best friends with the missionaries.  He knows all about districts, and transfers, and exchanges, and pretty much everything about how we run.  He wasn't able to come for the English Class on Saturday, until the very end.  It was pretty bad, because the Advanced class was literally empty without him there.  

This Friday, we were able to hear from the General Authorities in a worldwide missionary training meeting.  They haven't done one of these for over 10 years, probably about when PMG first came out.  It was very cool to see, they taught a lot.  They taught us about they way that we should be doing missionary work, and it was a little pressuring at times, but it was a wonderful experience.

I asked Tyler this week why he puts ^^ all over his letters.  He said it's a Korean smiley face.
