November 16, 2008
This week was pretty typical. i am finally starting to get into the groove of a missionary and how things work here in Korea. some exciting things that happened this week were: the bishop took us out to lunch on Tuesday. we went to a really nice restaurant where we ate this food called 삼겹살 (sam gyup sar) it was really good. definately the best food i have eaten yet and i have heard its a lot of missionaires favorite food. its really thick bacon but it doesnt taste like bacon. to cook it, there was this dome in the middle of the table that the waiter put it on. then we put on other things to cook too, like onions, garlic and kimchi. once it was all cooked we put it in a lettuce rap and ate it. it was really good.
I got to go on splits this week twice. the first time was with one of the AP's his name is Elder Thorley. it was nice to be with an american and i learned a lot. he taught me some good sayings to use when proselyting. then we taught the first lesson to one of his investigators. i taught about prophets, the apostasy, and the Book of Mormon. the lesson was good but the investigator didnt seem very into it.
i also went on splits with elder nash. he is one of the office secretaries. it was a little dissapointing because i had to stay in the office and do work. my companion got in trouble for sticking his 'greenie' in the office all day. we went out and proselyted for a little while so it wasnt too bad. and we also walked down this cool market street. do you remember the picture we used to have on the computer of the market with the fish and weird things laying out? it looked exactly like that.
That is about all that i did this week. i dont get a lot of opportunities to teach but when i do it is awesome. i love bareing my testimony in Korean, especially about our Heavenly Father. there are a lot of people here that dont believe in God and i feel His love when i talk about him. I know that He lives and that He loves all of us.
