Monday - Costco P-day
So after email we went to costco and it was stinking awesome. There were tons of missionaries there haha it was funny. cuz we all have to do our shopping on monday so everyone goes. Too funny. But we had extra money so we decided to spoil ourselves. we bought stuff to make american sandwhiches. turkey. too good. and also corndogs. too good. :) haha it was awesome. then we came home and cleaned and watched mormon messages. pretty dang awesome. Then we went to 허병석 Ho Byungsuck's house. By the way. The first thing is the last name. So if he were to go to america he'd be brother ho. anyway. we went there and guess what they had made for us for dinner. Subway and KFC. haha too funny. I felt like i was back in the good old america. it was really good. Although i think i told you guys this already, but the grease is really getting to me. like when i eat greasy american food i'm just like wow this stuff. dang. but it was way fun. then we had our weekly coordination meeting with our ward mission leader which was awesome. then we came home! 

Tuesday - Seoul University/Fun Dinner Appointment
It was really good. After dinner we went to Seoul University which is in our area. It's the harvard of korea. Like undisputably the best school in korea. it was awesome. But we weren't there for very long. Talked to a french guy who is going there. apparently some of the classes are in english and some are in korean. pretty cool. everyone who goes there speaks like fluent english. pretty crazy. But yeah! Then we got on the bes to leave and we went to the park and talked to lots of people. we talked to a black guy from South Sudan. pretty dang cool. he was super awesome. His name is John. He lives in Busan so not in our mission but we just talked to him and didn't give him a card or anything so then we went and chased him down cuz we felt bad, gave him a card and he actually texted us later! So that was awesome! He seems super nice and maybe down to meet us. but we'll see. he was going to sudan until february so we'll talk to him again then. after that we came home and made calls and then we went to 안상철 Ahn Sangchor's house. Brother Ahn. ;) haha anyway, we went there and they have a stinkin cute kid. He is like 5 and was just showing me some toys and this animal book. stinkin cute. haha he was awesome. but yeah the meal was super good. Buday Chigae which is like the american soup stuff....can't really explain just gotta eat it. it's good. haha then we taught them about pre-earth life and adam and eve as a practice lesson. it was relly good! Then we came home! 

Wednesday - Super Awesome Zone Conference
We had zone conference basically all day. it was super good. like yeah i really really liked it. we talked about accountability and other stuff too but the main thing i learned was accountability. we jsut went straight to youngdeungpo. we talkede all about our own personal stewardships which to be honest i don't know what that is. i think it is just like being accountable. so yeah. haha it was really cool cuz like i wanted to be more accountable and then we got trained on it! So heck yeah! we watched to Jorg Kleigbengat talk as well. pretty dang good. but yeah! The meeting was really good. it was from 10-4:30 then we had a leadership meeting after from 5-6 haha it was really long. then we came home and had english class which was super good! 

Thursday - Lots of Stuff
After our studies we went to a members house for lunch/a practice lesson. his name is 정경수 jung kyungsoo. he's super cool. super super nice. he said that his plan was to serve a mission in 5 years with his wife. so dang cute. when he was younger he was baptized but went less active so he didn't go on a mission. but now he's super active and married in the temple. too cute. ah! Get this. haha when we were there someone came to fix his like water machine and so he was like hey! Should we give him a book of mormon so we did! Haha it was super funny. he's like yeah, normally i wouldn't have the courage to give someone one but since you guys were here i had more courage. :) It was super cute. The lunch was super good too. Then we taught him about the atonement which was super good. then we went to the church and had like a coordination meeting with all the missionaries in our area. it was good! Needed. i think we are gonna do some serious work this transfer. i'm super excited about it. our area is doing really good. we had 3 people at church this week. so like super good. then we did evaluation with the bongchun elders. they're super cute. :) Haha but yeah that was super good. they taught me the gospel of jesus christ. hey do you guys ever study PMG? Cuz i would highly suggest it. like chapter 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 are all super super good even as jsut a normal member. the rest are really good too, but not quite as applicable to normal members. although chapter 9 is always good if you wanna do missionary work. :) anyway, then we had dinner and made calls and got some appointments so that was super good. then we went and took some cuties to some people. haha it was pretty awesome!

Friday - Fun Lessons
Pretty good! We had weekly planning which was awesome. we reorganized our board which now looks fantastic. there's a pic on dropbox of it. but yeah! Then we went and met 김성환 Kim Sunghwan. He's super nice. i stinkin love him. he's a good member. just stressed to the max with work and stuff. so we taught him to pray and to keep the sabbath day holy as a practice lesson. pretty awesome. spirit was there for sure. :) Then we went and finally met the recent convert 이승룡 Lee seungyong. he's super aweosme. he's just not comin to church too often. :( but it's okay i guess. he only comes like once a transfer... but he brought his dog and it's the stinkin cutest thing ever. long bushy tail and floppy ears ah. there's a pic with it. i hope it's okay. but yeah.. we taught him about how we can be happy. he said he'd be at church! But he didn't come. i am thinking i'm gonna call him every single week. ah. stress. but yeah. after taht we went and got dinner and then came home and made some calls/did PMGTIP, which is our language learning program. so yeah!

Saturday - Finished the BoM
So yeah today i finished the book of mormon again! It was super good! Always kinda depressing towards the end but it was super good. i love it. it's definitely true. read it everyday. anway, then we met 김슬기 Kim Surgi. our old ward missionleader. he's super awesome. we did a practice lesson with him that went really good! taught him about how our families can be together forever. super super good. he like has us practice teaching things better and stuff so it was really good. after that we met 김경민 Kim Gyungmeen who is a guy we met earlier this week. he's super nice. just has like no religious interest. although, i think he does he just doesn't want to admit it. but yeah we met him and sort of introduced ourselves. but yeah. we aren't sure if he's gonna become a new investigator or not. at this point it's looking like maybe not...but yeah. then we went out and visited lots of members and stuff. a few people were home so that was good. then we came home and had dinner, sandwhiches. so good. then we went and took the hospital guy a sandwhich. haha so our church is right next to a hospital where the same workers are every day. so we talk to them every once in a while. he's super nice. anyway, we talked to him friday and promised we'd bring him a turkey sandwhich. it was suepr funny. he said it was super good! So heck yeah! THen we went and visited a few peolpe but yeah! That was it!

It was a great way to end the week. We went to the church and got it cleaned up then we had church which was goo! Our investigator came. 강진오 Kang Jeenoh. He's super cool. i really like him. it's his 4th time at church. he still has no belief in god though. so we are worried. ah. but yeah we had church and that was awesome. after we taught him and it went pretty good! We taught him with our ward mission leader 박순철 Park Soonchor. it went pretty good! Our ward mission leader talked to him about baptism for like 30 minutes. but that's okay. it was pretty good. then we taught him about prayer and how he needs to be sincere and he said that's the hard part. but he understands and said he would try this week! So heck yeah! We felt the spirit prettty darn strongly. so we think that something good is gonna happen. ah we are hoping. please pray for him. after that we went and did home teaching. went and visited some cool families. one is starting to go less active and one is less active for sure. kinda sad. but that was good! Always good to spend time with the members. then we went and had dinner with 김준식 Kim Joonsheek and his wife. they're super fun. he's like yeah people when they get spiritual get super serious and act like it's so sad and stuff but when i get spiritual i just start to laugh!
