So big news is that I am in a new area! It is actually the area Elder Shaw came from before he came to Sacheon and also I am replacing my MTC companion, Elder Pickard! My new companion is Elder Brower and he has been serving for about 20 months I think. I don't know anything about him yet. I am in an area called Gyeongsan. North of Busan but south of another main city called Daegu. Small area. Branch of about 25ish members, a tiny bit bigger than Sacheon. Daegu is the hottest place in South Korea apparently, and many of the people here say that it is hotter here than in Daegu city....I will see, either way I will probably sweat a lot. My replacement in Sacheon will be a new missionary meaning Elder Shaw is training.
So this week was a lot less exciting than last week teaching wise. Monday our friend, the one guy that drinks a lot and we taught him word of wisdom, well we tried to meet him and went to the place where we agreed to meet...he wasn't there, he had gone home already. He had called us before and said he could meet. He was also just rambling and rambling..We called him when we didn't find him there and he just rambled and rambled again..It doesn't seem like meeting him is the best option, one because he is drunk when he wants to meet, and two he wants a Korean missionary so they can understand and so we can communicate...well that won't happen so we really can't meet him anymore.
My last Sunday, yesterday, the less active/recent convert student, Muhyon, we had been working with came to church to see me! He walked in right after sacrament ended but at least he could hear my good bye testimony! It was so great to see him there because we couldn't get him to come before but him coming to see me is a start...hopefully he will come out on a more regular basis at least once a month...it is hard for him because he lives in the city where the church isn't...that was why he never came before so it is really hard for him to go. The members really treated him well and were glad to see him and encouraged him to come out more often. He is so awesome! I will really miss him!
After church we had a branch activity at the branch president's house. We all drove there and had lunch and talked and then we had a musical talent show type thing. It was super fun, many of the members sang or played piano. It really felt like a family gathering. I will miss them all so much.
That is really it for this week! I am super tired right now because I had to get up at 4:30 to get to Busan this morning for our meeting!
Have a good week!
