Exchanges and So Many Cookies!


안녕하세요, 여러분!

This week was an interesting week.  We had a massive zone streetboarding activity this week, and so our team was asked to make a whole bunch of cookies for it to give out to random people that walked by.  We spent a while making them, and our team ended up making over 200 cookies for this activity.  Then, we found out that people don't like taking cookies from strangers.  However, we were luckily able to give most of them out.  It took a bit of aggressiveness, but it worked out in the end.  We also received a bunch of people's phone numbers to contact, but through further investigation, sadly many of them were fake.  The activity was definitely a success, though.  We will be doing at least one more, in the far north realm of 금촌 (Geumchon).  This one will be the best yet! ^^

We also went on exchanges this week.  I went with Elder Flora, to 일산 (Il-San).  I was able to meet with their investigator that has a baptismal date, whose name is 세준 (Sejun).  He is super awesome.  We are pretty much best friends.  He is actually getting baptized into our ward, because one of his best friends attends our ward.  It is a bit of an interesting case, but by next week, he should be a new member of our church, which is awesome!  Besides that, on exchanges, we just walked around their whole area finding members' houses and we also streetboarded.  It was pretty great.  

Then, on Friday, we met with our new investigator.  His name is 정승이 (Jeongseung-i).  He is about 60, and is a super friendly guy.  He attended church when he was younger, but doesn't anymore.  He also stopped drinking alcohol when he was younger, too, which is a pretty great miracle.  We will be meeting him again this week, so we can find out a little bit more about him and try to talk about baptism with him.  It should be great! ^^

Then, on Saturday, we had our Music Night at 녹번 와드 (Nokbeon ward).  It was pretty great.   I was quite impressed.  They were actually able to make "That Easter Morn" sound good!  And, our investigator, 임상현 (Imsanghyeon), came with us.  I think he liked it, but Elder Eggleston and I had to leave pretty soon after, so we weren't really able to talk with him about it.  It was a pretty great night, though.  On Sunday, I was on exchanges the whole day, and we visited a couple of members.  It was also a pretty great day.

Have a good week!
