Feb 12 Busy week

Feb 12

Last week was a little crazy! Every transfer now we have a zone conference (President Sonksen and the AP's train) in addition to zone training (the zone leaders train). Being in Gangwon Province, where all the districts are hours from each other, to be effective we did both on the same day. It was a little tiring, but super spiritual. 

Coming back from Gangnung after zone meetings, me and Elder Horne decided to eat dinner at the terminal as we were waiting for our bus back to Wonju. We went to a restaurant we had been to before, and knew the lady that worked there. What happened teaches a really cool thing about Korean culture. We talked with her a bunch and shared more about what we do as missionaries, and asked if she had read the pamphlet we gave her last time. We were the only customers at the time, so we talked a whole bunch. Then, she got up and started peeling a Korean pear (SO delicous), then sliced it up and set it on our trays for us, free of charge. Then, when we go to pay for our meals, she doesn't take the money and  just tells us to have a safe trip. That's one of the things I love about Korea - this kind of thing happens all the time! 

We are going hard on finding right now. I'm really glad to be working with Elder Horne, because he is so focused and has lots of desire to bring others unto Christ. And, quite honestly, he is probably going to be better at Korean than me in a couple weeks here. He has already studied French and Arab, and is otherwise just crazy smart. He skipped a year of high school and went to BYU at age 16. Don't tell him I said that, though!

안녕히 계세요!
