The Week of Learning


안녕하세요, 여러분!

Hey everyone, what's up?  This week was a very full week.  We had the actual transfers this week, where everyone does the act of switching companions.  Since Elder Davis became AP, he left on Tuesday, but transfers wasn't until Wednesday.  So, Elder Peterson and I spent all of Tuesday with Elder 이호현 (Ihohyeon).  That was fun.  While we were with him, we visited a less active member's restaurant, and were able to talk with her a little bit.  Then, we went to the church and made a PowerPoint presentation in preparation for Saturday (more on that later).  Then, we taught English Class.  It was kind of an average Tuesday, but we both learned a lot from him.  

Then, on Wednesday, Elder Dye came!  He's from Providence, Utah, only 30 minutes away from my hometown.  He's a cool guy.  On Thursday, we met with Bob.  When we meet with him, we read the Bible and Book of Mormon in English with him.  We specifically read the last half of Matthew ch. 8 and 3rd Nephi 27:11-20.  We laid before him our purpose, and told him exactly what needs to happen on his part for him to achieve the happiness that we can share.  He accepted the commitment to read and pray about the Book of Mormon to find out if it is truly the word of God.  It was a super powerful lesson, and I am super excited to follow up with him this week.  

Now I will tell you about Saturday.  On Saturday, we had a special English Talent Night.  It went super well!  We have been practicing singing "Amazing Grace" with our English Class students, and they did so well!  They sang 3 verses of it in English, and one student gave a special foreword for it.  They did so well!  The other acts were pretty cool, too.  녹번's (Nogbeon's) act was reenacting the story of 흥부 and 놀부 (Heungbu and Nolbu - you can find the story online).  There were other acts that sang Frozen for us.  It was all a very interesting activity, and very fun.  

On Sunday, we went to church, and it went very well.  Ward Council went very well as well.  The missionaries all gave a special musical number of "In Humility, Our Savior".  That went so well!  We also had a Homecoming for 황서현s (Sister Hwang Seohyeon).  She just returned from the New York New York South mission.  She gave a really great talk in Sacrament Meeting.  We went to Gospel Doctrine Class yesterday, where 노원철b (Brother Nowoncheol) was the teacher.  He asked me what 자라난 세대 was in English, and I told him I had no idea (Google translate doesn't know either), and then, after church, he came up to me, and was like, "Wow, you need to learn a lot more Korean!"  ^^  It was pretty funny.  

I call this week the week of learning because I learned a lot this week.  I have learned a too much to talk about here, but let me tell you, it helped me out a lot.  

That's all, folks!
