Elder Jin meen young Robert Harley

well i realized that i have been with my new companion elder jin meen young 진민용 for three weeks and i havent even told you about him. he is an awesome convert that wasn't planning on going on a mission but the opportunity arose so he is here. he was baptized 5 years ago because his aunt introduced him to the church. after he was baptized he went to college and was planning on doing the rotc instead of the two year military service that all korean young men have to do. because of that he didnt have the time to take a two year brake and serve a mission. but somehow a new program came out for people in the rotc to be able to take two years off so he saw it as a sign and came out. he is a great elder and i really like working with him.
i dont have much time because i am emailing from a train and i have to get off soon but i'll update you on our investigators.
'Denmark' isnt doing so good because his dad said we cant meet with him. he has a big test to take in october and he has to study for it. koreans study a lot...we just got the book of mormon in danish, mormons bog, and are praying that we can at least give that to him.
our 'gay' investigator was sick for most of last week so we couldnt meet with him. his main problem is that he doesnt have any faith or any desire to believe what we teach him. so we are working on getting him to find a motive and trying to give him hope.
welp gotta go.
love elder wells

i got off the train and my comp still has to do some emailin so im back on. maybe you can attach this to my last email and send them all together or something.

the highlight of the week this week was definitely saturday night. there was a fireside in busan in my greenie ward. a guy named robert harley came and spoke and i got permission to go. he is an american that is famous in korean because he is good at korean and teaches english. he also served in this mission a long time ago. it was so cool to go and see all of the people in the ward that i havent seen since november and be able to actually kind of speak to them. the best part was seeing a guy named barry there. barry is a chinese guy that we taught when i was a greenie but he couldnt come to church because of school so we were thinking about dropping him. since we met him at the church next to the mission office we decided to give him to the office couple and they have been meeting him every since. he doesnt speak korean, but he is pretty good at english. he came to the fireside and remembered me even though we only met like 3 times and it was 8 months ago. i was really happy that he remembered me and that he is still investigating the church. he is done with school in september and will be able to come to church then. this is the first time i have been able to see a direct result of something i have done on my mission. i dont know how to explain it but it is really really rewarding.
