This week has been incredibly busy, so I will start from the beginning. On Monday the elders, Sis. Gooch, and I decided to do an activity together to start off P-day. In our church, there is this random bag of ball pen balls. So we decided that we would have a giant dodgeball game. Our elders decided to make forts out of chairs. One Elder decided to take it even a step further by making tank barriers. I am not really sure what that means, but it made it incredibly hard to throw balls at him. After P-day, we went and had FHE with one of our favorite members. We talked about how the beginning of the new year is often associated with new beginnings. Then we tied that to the atonement. Overall, it was a really good FHE.
On Tuesday, half our district got super sick. Something is being spread around the missionaries in Korea and it is not good. So Tuesday and Wednesday, we were sentenced inside to recover and make phone calls. Tuesday night, we went out and met with Sis. Wright and Sis. Moyer for a language evaluation. Anytime we meet with those two, we laugh a lot.
On Thursday, the missionaries in our district woke up super early to welcome the new year with the ward. We met our ward at the base of this hill and then we hiked up. Once we arrived to the designated spot, we sang a hymn and the bishop prayed. He then told us all to individually pray for ourselves, family, investigators, friends, etc. Essentially for everyone...it was super good because it remotivated us to be better missionaries. After hiking, we went to the bishops house and ate rice cake soup. It was so good :)
Friday we helped a couple in our ward move to their new apartment. While we were helping the move, we found opportunities to share the gospel with maintenance people. It was really cool and we extended an invitation to them to learn more about our church. We hope they take us up on our offer.
On Sunday we received transfer calls! Sadly, Sis. Gooch is leaving but she is heading to Gangnam!! Whenever we talk about transfer calls, she would always joke about how she wanted to go to the city. My new companion will be Sis. Reed and it looks like she will be my last. I am still STL and I am super excited to be able to end my mission here in 만수!! Can you believe that I only have 2 transfers left? I cannot...it definitely is not something I am going to be able to process for a while.
