Transfer 5


Wow, I cannot believe how fast time is flying by...when Sis. Kelly and I were Weekly Planning and it took us by surprise that our first transfer together was almost over! This week will be incredibly eventful because we get to go to the temple and receive training from Elder Quentin L. Cook of the 12 apostles. We are incredibly excited because it allows us to be spiritually enlightened and see all of our friends from the Seoul and Seoul South mission.

This week, Sis. Kelly has been really sick. So a lot of our time was spent updating records, calling less active members, studying Korean, and cleaning the apartment. I never realized how important keeping records are until this past week. There were so many past investigators whose information was not recorded, so we have no idea how to re-contact them. Lesson learned. I will definitely make sure that all of the records Sis. Kelly and I keep are up to date. 

Recently, the Anyang missionaries have realized that there are a lot of YSA members who are less active in our ward. We were trying to think of ways we could help invite them to come back to church and we decided on having FHE for YSA. We proposed the idea to the bishop and with his support we are ready to go. The hardest part now will be to find the YSA members. Apparently, they are really good at hiding, I and Sis. Kelly are going to do a lot of praying and staking out the popular hot spots in Anyang. Elder Kasperian has decided to call the Anyang missionaries the "독신 salvation council." 

Another notable thing this weekend is that the Anyang missionaries have been streetboarding/ street contacting together more often. This past Sunday, we went to a park and shared our talents in order to attract attention. I hope you can imagine 1 Elder asking for permission to draw a caricature of someone's child, ukulele elder, soccer ball bouncing Elder, and 2 awkward sister missionaries can only giving out compliments because we are in skirts. It was probably the most hilarious things I have done, but there was a lot of good that came out of it. We got several phone numbers and had really good conversations with a couple of students. One of the students wanted to meet with us next week!

Also, even though I have been senior companion for several weeks....we still get lost all the time. It is quite a blast, but somehow we always meet someone and share a gospel message. So, maybe we were meant to get lost!

I think that is it. I am doing really well and Sis. Kelly is slowly adjusting to the food and culture. It will definitely be a few more weeks before she will eat Kimchi everyday, but I will make it happen. I miss you and hope you are all well!
