|We went to a fancy resort thing with a member after a 식사 (lunch). |
You have to be real 부자 (wealthy) to vacation here, but it was nice to dream...
|I have been so blessed thus far to have companions who not only know how to cook, |
but also do cook for us.
|We were playing Pictionary, and I told them to draw a hippo...|

The work goes on in DongHae! It's so beautiful here. The weather has been pretty cool, a little bit rainy, but it's good. I'm starting to recognize where we are when we go places, so that's good. I think it was sort of a blessing that I was in DongDaeMun for so long because I definitely blocked everything out of my mind when I was a greenie; in other words, it took me 7 months to learn the area. Now that I'm a little more aware of missionary life, and I'm not jetlagged out of my mind, I think I'll be able to learn this area a little faster. At least, that's what I'm hoping. We have exchanges this week, and I'm leading this area (it's practice, Sister Calda says). We'll see how it goes. 👍
We had a pretty busy week this past week. Doing service at English Academies (the kids wanted to meet real foreigners, but I think they were a little nervous to have to speak English with us. They did good, though!); helping prepare food for the Primary activity; meeting new investigators; looking at the beach and the ocean (I will need to go to the beach upon returning home); we went to Seoul last P day for a meeting on Tuesday, so that was fun. Long bus ride, and I have discovered that long car rides make me really sleepy. Seriously. Couldn't keep my eyes open, basically as soon as we started moving.
This past week I have discovered/realized how grateful I am for the person that Heavenly Father is helping me become. I know I'm definitely not there yet, but I can literally see a difference in what I want and how I think about things. It's a little exsistential (I'm not sure if I spelled that correctly, or even used it in the correct context, but it seemed right): I remember what my previous wishes and desires are, but what they are currently are definitely different.
I'm so grateful that Heavenly Father has provided a way for us to become better than we are. I've probably heard that idea before, but now it's actually becoming real for me. Heavenly Father doesn't just want us to leave behind what makes us bad, He wants to elevate us and make us better than our good. I'm so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and, and as much as I'm willing to put in the effort, the person it can help me become.
I love you all! Have a good week!

|Last DongDaeMun district picture at the temple. Temple P day right before transfer day made for a crazy schedule, but it was a good way to end the transfer.|
|Up close: Sister Choi, Sister Chun, and the Elders (the Mama will try to find out their names...).|
|Love this girl! Sister Choi was a little sad about transfers, but she's doing good in her trio companionship in DongDaeMun.|
|First day with Sister Calda!|
|This picture is only special because there are no buildings. And there are mountains!|
|So. Hot. But not as bad as Seoul, we heard, so that's good. ㅎㅎ|
|At the beach with our investigator Anna and her son 도영 (DoYoung).|
|DoYoung wanted to take a picture, so he just pointed it at the nearest model... ;)|
|We got to enjoy this band's music for a few minutes before we left. |
That Korean man has a beautiful voice.
