|Back to the mountains! We love Gangwondo!|
The new area is beautiful! I am here with Sister Cook of Seattle, Washington. She's going to be in her fourth transfer, and she is awesome! She's the French speaker at the Mormon Helping Hands Center that we've been asked to help out with. And I? Ah speaka de Engrish. And kind of the Korean, but I think that's sort of deteriorating a little bit, unfortunately. Don't worry, I'm working on it.
We're opening an area, which means we're pretty much starting from scratch, so there's going to be a lot of finding in the next few weeks. 👍 My favorite (she said, somewhat facetiously). Hehe but it'll be good. We're both really excited.
As I already mentioned, the area is just gorgeous! The couple days that we've been here have been chilly, yes, but the sky is so clear blue, and the sun is so bright! Of course, it's at way too low of an angle in the sky, but I don't blame it. I think we have to enjoy this while we can: Our branch president mentioned that the months of February and March are the snow coming months...
The view from our 15th floor apartment is awesome. The Elders are jealous. Hehe
As far as the Olympics go: The Winter Olympics are called PyoungChang, but only the sports that need snowy mountains will be in PyoungChang. The rest of the stuff is going on in Gangreung, so Korea built a new train straight from the airport to Gangreung. The Church was able to secure (somewhat miraculously) a spot for a Mormon Helping Hands Center right across the street from the station. Our involvement will happen about three days a week when we go to Gangreung to volunteer in the center. Members are also volunteering, so the missionaries' job is to help the members have a fun, spiritual time, and to help run the center (providing information about the area to patrons who may come in to the center, showing them the Family History stuff we have, helping them get hot chocolate, etc.). We were able to experience the Center a little bit on Saturday, but we're excited for the days to come!
I love you all! Have a good week!
|Cute companions at the temple!|
|Last district picture! (The other Elders actually weren't out of the temple yet, |
but we had to go, so...)
|Had a fun temple P Day! It was good to see Sister Castro!|
|And I took a picture with Sister Castro's boyfriend. Happy birthday, Kai!|

|We met this really cool member on exchanges in SinChon (the temple area) who gave us a bunch of stuff to help with missionary work. We love our members!|
This week has been another fun one! Exchanges and lots of streetboarding.
Note: Streetboarding is not as cool as it sounds. Haha Basically a team or two of missionaries stand with some kind of sticker board and ask people to stick stickers in an attempt to talk to them. The boards can be anything from "Happy or sad" to "Who's the best looking?" with pictures of Joseph Smith, Nephi, Mormon, and Moroni (helpful for talking about the Book of Mormon). Logan's description is a lot more adventurous: two sister missionaries (in this case three), skateboarding down the street handing pamphlets and copies of the Book of Mormon to everyone. Haha I would go to that church, if I were people. :)
We were also able to meet two new investigators, one of whom is also a 전! That was exciting. She's a funny little thing; hopefully we can help her come to feel the gospel is true.
Speaking of the true gospel, I'm so excited that we have a living prophet today. I was sad when I heard about President Monson's passing, but I was really grateful to have the reassurance that President Nelson is the new prophet. The Lord is truly overseeing His work: things tend to run smoothly when we do things His way.
This week's letter is sort of short, but I think that's just about all I have to say. I love you all! Have a good week!
|Not a great picture, but I just wanted to capture the amazing-ness of Korea_ only in Korea will they bring you a bowl of rice, kim, and seasame oil with a glove on top and an extra little plate so that you can make your own mix!|
|In their defense, they didn't really know that I was taking a picture. From Left to right_ Bae Mun Cheol, Bae Hyun Min, Kim Young Min (mom), and Bae Yae Jin. They took us out for dinner and ice cream, and yes, we did eat it all!|
|Another reason to love Korea. I really hope these kinds of socks exist in America...|
