I love him to death ah. he's the best man. anyway, then we invited him to family home evening and he almost came...but no dice. super sad. so then we had family home evening which was super fun. we did it at a members house. 김용! Kim yong. he's super cool. anyway, me and elder smith shared the message. it was the restoration. super good! Then we played signs. that was super super fun. haha i didn't think it was gonna be like that fun but it was way fun. mostly cuz it's asians playing signs which is just adorable haha i love it. anyway, yeah so that was super fun. and that was our night! 

Tuesday we had our studies then we went to find some less actives but none of them answered sadly... then we went and met one of our members 김영곤 kim younggon. he's super awesome. he took us out to eat at a shabu shabu restaraunt like the one i sent pics of last week. it was super good. we ate a ton. haha he ordered some sort of thing that had beef and sea food? it was super good. haha their seafood is pretty different. like they eat a lot of octopus and like... don't take the heads off the shrimp and a lot more like oyster stuff. so yeah it was good. :) Then we went bck to the church and taught him a lesson. it was super good. about the plan of salvation. then we had to retake pics for our pamphlet. oh my gosh i haven't sent you guys pictures of our ward program each week. they're like 8 pages and in color. they'd blow your mind. i'll be sure to take some this week. but yeah. so there's a picture of me and elder smith in there where he was way taller than me in it haha it was funny so we retook those then we met 김성환 kim sunghwan for a practice lesson and that also went really good!
