This has been another pretty great week. Things are starting to get a little warmer again, although there's still always the slight rain every once in a while. This week we came back here after going to the meeting for missionaries who are transferring to new areas or going home. It was pretty interesting---there were a lot of missionaries that I had served with or knew pretty well who gave their testimony, and at the end they all sang the one from the Children's Songbook about praying. It was kind of cheesy, but kind of in a nice way. After that, I realized the missionary who called me and told me he was transferring to this area, 박장로님 (Elder Park (Pock)), wasn't there. We went together with the other missionaries in our area back here together, and then later heard that he had had a bad allergic reaction and went to the doctor at the last minute. He called later that day to say what had happened, and that he would come the next day. The other missionaries here, 황장로님 and 김장로님 (Elder Hwang and Elder Kim) and I stayed together and then left in the morning to go to the bus terminal to pick up my companion. He's really nice---we actually served in the same district when I served in Ulsan a while ago, and I was always impressed by his good example. He already did his military service, went to college for a year where studied marine biology, and is very nice and responsible as well as funny. He was still feeling a little tired from just being treated, so after a bit of trying to find a less-active member's house we went back and called some other people that we wanted to meet, and then went to visit a really nice member together, 고자매님 (Sister Go). She works as a custodian at a middle school, and talked about how her kids aren't as interested in church and sometimes it's hard for her. Even though it was just the first day he'd been there,Elder Park (Pock) worked really hard to get to know everyone as fast as he could and to figure out how he needed to help them.
Everything else was pretty good this week---I started trying to read in Isaiah again, and was thinking about the nature of the Lord's strong words about sin and sinners, coupled with the promise that if we just desire to and come unto Him, that we can figure everything out and become better. I think that as we keep trying consistently to be better and to follow Jesus' example, all the things we worry about, even the ones we don't totally understand, will eventually be able to be solved, and will work out well. I know there are lots f people here that need our help to be able to feel the comfort of working together with the Lord to be happy, and I'm so grateful to be able to serve here with great missionaries to do it. I hope you're all happy, and know how much I love and miss you. I also liked this scripture that Elder Park (Pock) shared a little bit ago---Doctrine and Covenants 84:77. I know that each of you are really blessing all the people around you---keep it up.
