June 15, 2014

Well hello! How are you guys doin? Didn't really get a long email from you, but it looks like scout camp was fun jace! Pretty jealous. I miss those days. Is his little house thing nice? I never got to go there. :( but the mountain thing looks fun! Good luck with girls camp this week! Try not to be too stressed. :) Anyways, our week was pretty good! Monday was fun! after we emailed we went to Gasan Digital Complex to look if there were any good deals on suits, but the only good ones were on the like thicker ones. None on summer suits which is what we wanted. So that was a big let down. After that we wet out and talked to people for a little bit. Man. Haha it's fun. We walk the same street all the time actually. Pretty sure we've talked to anyone who has ever walked on it. It's way funny. But that's fine. Tuesday we had service in the morning! THat was super fun. Me and elder Empey got to clean a nice old lady's house who can't clean the floor cuz of her back. So we cleaned her floor for her. It was so easy. It took us like 10 minutes. Then we helped them finish delivering lunch boxes. Pretty fun. After that we did the classic post-service thing and went to mcdonalds. :) So good. haha I alwas love going there. THen we had our lesson with 최인식(Choi InSheek). That was fun. We sung some songs with him which he really liked then had our lesson. He still like doesn't even care whether or not god exists. It simply doesn't matter cuz he doesn't think that it will make a difference. But hopefully we are going to change that really soon. Then we came home and had dinner and then english class! That was fun! Our investigator Frank (한용호) brought two of his friends that used to attend an old class that got shut down a few years ago. That was cool! They were way nice and good at english! Then we had our weekly coorleation meeting which was fun. Our ward mission leader brought his kid. He's so cute. Haha he's way cute. So we got to hang out with him for a little bit. That was fun. When it ended it was raining super hard! Like wayyy hard! It was lightning and thundering! I don't know what to call that haha. There was thunder? Yeah and it was way loud! So 변창기 gave us a ride home. Pretty fun!
Wednesday was fun too. We studied then elder empey did some pass offf stuff. Then we called some less actives but only one guy answered and he wasn't interested at all for coming back to church. Actually i don't know why i never thought of this before but I thought of a way good way to get in with less actives. Just call em and be like hey i'm a new missionary and I was just wanting to say hi to all of the members in our ward! So is it okay if we come by and visit you for like 5 minutes? When do you have time. Then you can gauge really well at how interested they are and it's not awkward at all. So yeah! Anyway then we went out to visit some of our less active friends but none of them were home. So that was lame. And one of the places we visited the lady couldn't understand us. Then we were walking by our friend who parks cars at a restaraunt and he waved us over and asked us for a book of mormon! so we gave it to him but before we could ask him to meet he told us to go. So next time we see him we are going to ask him if he wants to meet us. :) So good! Then we were walking visiting another guy and we found a super cool buddhist temple that we got pictures of! So I'll be sure to get those on dropbox. :) Oh haha the guy who we were visiting his house has now been replaced by a brand new villa. Like the only new place on the street and it's our members. Haha of course. So he had moved for sure. Then it was sorta raining and we went hiking on a tiny little mountain for like five minutes that was pretty fun. :)
Thursday was good! Just not very eventful. We made cookies for our homies. :) haha we want to give em to people to try and help their families warm up to us.  then we went and tried to visit a less ative down in the south part of our area, but big surprise he moved! Ah so frustrating. Literally everyone we visited had moved. haha so anyway, then we were talking to people and talked to this crazy grandma who hated churches. Even though she goes...haha so confused. But yeah.THen we had our lesson with 한용호! But our member that we explained the lesson plan to very clearly decided well he assumed that we didn't teach anything to him even though he knows literally everything abou our church. so he just talked at our investigator for like an hour about stuff he already knew. haha it was so frustrating. but ah so dumb. i was pretty angry haha. but it's fine. 한용호 still loves us. :) haha so that's good. Friday was good! We had service! They needed us for whatever that was fun. Us and two other companionships of elders went. They are serving in 목동 (MokDong). So then we of course went to get mcdonalds with them. It was way fun. :) haha i loved it. Oh on the way to mcdonalds we started talking to a cool kid who lived in new york for a long time and he hated the fact that we spoke korean to him. So we were jus talking to him got his number. that was literaly the worst language i've ever heard in my life. haha but it's fin. After that we had weekly planning then went to find a less actives house. So we found the building but couldn't find a way up to the apartments. So lame. So we were like okay the stairs don't go up to it...maybe there i a place in the basement that does. So we went all the way down there and found the entrance. :) haha we found an elevator that went up to the floor his apartment was on...but the house number wasn't there. it was like 601-603 but his was 605. So then we went to the main floor of the apartment place and had to switch elevators. Ah so confusing. So we found it and he wasn't home so we left something on his door and when we left we figured out that if we went in the main door we wouldn't have been able to get in. It would have been locked. But since we went the way we did we were able to find a back way in. :) haha i felt like a spy. way cool. So yeah that was friday! Oh hang on. Haha we said hi to this drunk guy on our way to that place and he was like oh yeah hi! And we started to talk to him but figured since he was soo drunk we would just keep goin. But we stopped to talk to someone else and he passed us with an icecream in his hand, gave it to Elder Empey, showed him the receipt and moved on. haha he was so proud of his 60 cent icecream he gave to him. haha it was way funny. :)
Saturday was awesome! We had our personal study then we went over to 영등포(YoungDeungPo) for a leadership meeting which was good!  I got to see people from the MTC which was way fun. We were trained on how we need to do anything we can to help our bishops, which is good of couse. And then we had training on baptismal interviews. So yeah pretty fun little training meeting. Then me and elder Lim started our split. He's the coolest. He is the other companionship in 화곡. We started visiting some less actives but they had both moved. So then we had an appointment with a less active which was way cool! His name is 익주 (Lee GeeJew) i think. He's way cool. He had an accident a few years ago that left him in a wheelchair, not paralyzed there is just something wrong with his legs. So that was sad. But he's a waycool guy. Stopped coming to church cuz a member offended him. I can't believe how many people here were offened so they stop coming. It's pretty mind blowing. But he took us to get 삼계탕 (SahmGayTahng) Pretty good! Ah it's probably m favorite thing in korea. SO that was perfect. Then we went back to his house cuz we had to help him in and out of the taxi and his wheelchair. Pretty sad. Ah. But it was good! Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. Okay so we were hanging out at his house and we were just talking and all of a sudden BANG!!! Literally the loudest fart i'd ever heard in my life. It would have blown your mind. He just lets it rip! And he played it off like nothing happened. In fact he was like oh that darn skunk. It was seriously so loud. It was the funniest. Oh my gosh. Elder Lim was at the counter getting water for us and he turns around and goes whoa!!! What was that! Haha it was so funny! oh my gosh. When me and elder Lim got outside his house we just fell on the ground and started laughing. It was soo funny. We were lauging about it for probably the next half hour. Jeez. Then we went and visited a less active but the address was weird. It was in a far part of our area where a wardused to be and the building was still there! It's nicer than the one we meet in! So that was cool to see that! Sunday was good too! We got up and went to church which was fun. our ffriend came! He's so cool! His name is 진수! or JeenSu. He's the coolest. Hah i lovehim. He's in 8th grade right now? So he came to church with us and sat next to us so cool. THen after church a kid that eldr empey met on his split came to the churhc. He's like 10 years old. His name is 하늘 in korean which means heaven or sky in english. So cool. haha he's a boss. so we hung out with him for a little then went home and studies. THen we went out and talked to people! Talked to a cool guy named winston from the phillipines! He's so cool! He complained about how hard korean was haha it was funny. then we came home and called people! But that was our week! A good one over here in Seoul korea! I love you guys! Try not to grow up too much in the next year. <3. I love you! I hit my year mark on thursday! Can you believe that! It'll be a year since the last time i saw you guys when i email you next! Weird! Ah. Love you!
