This week was super awesome! 신당 (Sindang) is such an awesome area! I have the best companion ever! Elder 강원호 (Kang) is such an awesome missionary! We have had a lot of fun together. Whitewashing into the biggest area of our mission... Nice... One of the biggest miracles I've seen since I've been here is that we haven't gotten lost yet. Knock on wood... Elder 강원호 (Kang) is working with the Deaf branch, which is a really big miracle. There are new people that come every week! This Sunday, we met with a really great family in 신당 (Sindang) ward, along with a couple extra young men. All 8 missionaries in the district were there, and we shared a message about missionary work. At the end, our district leader asked a couple of the young men that were hanging out in the back who they could try to talk to the gospel with. They actually had legit people, and said that they would do it! In Korea, things like that are a very rare occurrence. It was pretty awesome!
That being the case, finding new people to teach is surprisingly difficult here. As I have been exiled out of Seoul for 10 months, I had forgotten a lot about what it was like to live in the big city. People are really hard to talk to here. They all say, "Oh, I'm busy, sorry." or just shake their heads and walk past. It can be rather disappointing at times, but it's at those times when I remember who I can turn to, who has given me this opportunity to serve here in Korea, and then I smile, and everything works out so well! It's a great life I live out here, in the service of our Lord, Jesus Christ. I can't imagine anything else would be better!
Love you all! Have a good week!
