Oh mother. You're so motherly. :) haha I don't carry the water bottle no. I have it at home though! It's not hot enough to need it. And even when it is hot, it's easier to just buy a bottle for 50 cents somewhere and just drink that. :) Yeah the grafitti tunnel was awesome! haha no you don't really get too much of a workout on them, but if you were a grandma you would. Haha it's awesome. the schedule is 15 credits. not bad huh? We don't watch conference when you do. Was it way good though? We watch it a week late. So we'll watch it this weekend. should be great! I'm way excited! so glad you liked the pics. :) haha Anyway this week was fun! Got a new companion and so that was good.
Monday - Classes and Dinner with 이철행 (Joel)
Monday was a good p-day. I got my hair cut and then after emailing you guys we went back to 서초 Seocho and then we signed up for my classes at BYU so that was good. So much stress gone after that. haha then we went to just relax at home so that was of course good. Then we had dinner with 이철행 Lee Chorheng. Not sure how to put his name in english...his english name is Joel! so yeah anyway, he's way cool. Elder Wiseman wanted to say goodbye to him so we ate with him. that was good. He gave us tons of snacks. I sent a pic with him last week. Anyway, then we did some PMG TIP for the rest of the night!
Tuesday - Last Day with Elder Wiseman
So it was my last full day with elder wiseman. He's a super good guy. I'm actually gonna see him today so i'm excited for that one. Should be fun. Anyway, we went to 사당 Sadang so that we could do some PMG TIP outside and get it done, that was fun. haha a bunch of smokers always came and like smoked near enough to us that we could smell it so we kept like having to move, it was way funny. anyway, then we met Jason which was really good! We met him at a little coffee shop over there. He's way awesome. Elder wiseman again basically just said goodbye!

Well it was a really good day! So sad to see Elder Wiseman leave. i'm gonna miss him for sure. He's the best...but that's alright. Time for a change! We went to youngdeungpo and had transfers. So sad to see like some people i've been close to go home. Like elder gamble one of my companions, and elder hodges who is the best. but that's alright.

That was good. haha we sat down and started to do it then this guy comes up to us and says Hello! I've met missionaries like you! I'm a pastor! And i was just like oh no. what is about to happen. but it turns out he was really nice. so it was okay. He received some revelation about living like God. It was really weird. he wrote a book on it apparently. Anyway, basically you tell yourself you're god and that god is you it's so weird. i'll have to explain it not on email...but yeah that's the basic idea. So that was fun. 2 hours later we were able to get away from him haha he knew how to talk. Way funny. Then we went and visited some less actives, had dinner then w went and had a lot of work to do with the less actives in our ward so we ar workin on that right now. pretty awesome.

Thought - Gratitude
Read a super awesome talk by Dieter. I'm pretty sure i've talked about it before but it's so good! Here's a quote! "How blessed we are if we recognize God’s handiwork in the marvelous tapestry of life. Gratitude to our Father inHeaven broadens our perception and clears our vision.It inspires humility and fosters empathy toward our fellowmen and all of God’s creation. Gratitude is acatalyst to all Christlike attributes! A thankful heart is the parent of all virtues." Pretty good right? We need to be grateful for everything we have. I've started to be more grateful, still have a long ways to go, but as i have done it there's been a definite change in my life. so i would recommend thinking about what you can do to be more grateful for all that our heavenly father gives does for us. :)
