안녕하세요, 사랑하는 여러분!
This week was a pretty exciting week. We definitely saw some miracles this week. For example, we were finally able to meet with our investigator Jason this week. I haven't met him since I got to 신당. He is really awesome. He lived in America for a really long time. He is actually more comfortable with English than Korean for learning the gospel, so that's an adventure, especially for Elder Kang. He actually sounds kind of like a very stereotypical African American when he speaks English. It's pretty funny. He has a lot of faith in Our Savior, but he is now on a search on how to apply it, so we taught him about the first principles and ordinances of the gospel this week. He really likes what we taught about repentance, baptism, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. He said he will get baptized after he gets an answer that this is the path that God wants him to take, so we will definitely keep working with him.
The next miracle is our Halloween Party. We dedicated our whole week to it, due to fairly poor preparation. In other words, we were pretty much quarantined inside the church decorating and figuring out how everything was going to work from Wednesday to Saturday. The miracle is that it worked ㅋㅋ We decided that it was completely necessary to put a haunted house in our party on Friday Night at 8:30, for reasons that will not be explained here. Then, we also realized that we had no idea how anything was actually going to work, so we got a call at about 10:20 from our district leader, and we figured everything out about our party in 7 minutes, and then the next day we had our party, and it went really well! The other Elder team had one of their investigators come, and he brought a friend! We had a good amount of non-members at this party. It was definitely a success!
Love you all!

I asked for the reasons behind the last minute haunted house:
The idea for having a haunted house appeared on Tuesday night this week, so there was already insufficient amounts of time to make a real good haunted house. We talked about it again, and by Thursday, decided it was probably not the best idea, especially since we hadn't started on it at all by Thursday night. Then, once upon a time on Friday night, one of our Sisters rushed into the church at 8:30 and said, "Hey, I called all the members about the Halloween Party and the Haunted House, and they all said that they were coming, and are really excited for the haunted house!" Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yeah, that's what happened.
Did you know that if you put gummy worms in water and add a little vinegar...
They turn into disgusting slime?
We added some extras!
It's Christmas time in Seoul!
