More Americans

this week was a little better here in daegu because the rainy season started so it wasnt too hot but still really really sticky and humid. on days that it doesnt rain we sweat a lot because of the humidity. even when we are in the shade we just continue to sweat, its crazy. i think im getting better at english because this week at church i was actually able to interact with the foreigners a little. last week a girl in the foreign branch brought her two friends to church and they invited us over to there house last night to learn about the church. her friends are a husband and wife that have been married for a year and are expecting a baby. they have a christian background and are really curious about 'what makes mormons different'. my companion and i had a lot of fun getting to know them and telling them stories about korea. we were shocked to see american food at their house and they were shocked that we dont have access to american food like they do (they are in the military and get american food on the base) and offered to take us to the base to eat taco bell or subway. i got so excited because i really miss american food. i told them that i hadnt eaten american food like that in 2 years and they started packing up doritos, cake, and cereal for us to take home. so nice. we struggled a little to teach about the church in english but the spirit was strong and we were able to teach a solid first lesson. i felt like the spirit was edifying all of us and was teaching us as we taught. i am in awe of the restoration and know that it is the only possible way that God could restore the full gospel to the earth. its so amazing.
