Hello Everyone! thank you for the Birthday wishes! Honestly I feel exactly the same now as i did a week ago, but im a missionary! so that is pretty awesome!!!!! This first week in my new area has been pretty amazing to say the least. I love this area so much! and what helps even more is that i have a great companion! Elder Powell is amazing. He is teaching me a thing or two every day. We also only had the opprotunity to eat at home three times last week because investigators and members have been feeding us so much. Its a good thing that we run every morning or else the weight wold start piling on. today we went to the bamboo forrest again that i went to with elder dietz when i was in pohang. it was pretty fun. also the sisters here just had a baptism for their investigator named Michelle. (that is her english name she is amazing at english!) she is really an amazing person. so prepared. Elder Powell babtized her, and the whole thing was wonderful. we sang a musical number the four of us missionaries, and we messed up really bad at the beginning. it was hilarious. as far as investigators go right now, we have one when we call Brian. He is amazing! he is a Buddhist monk, but when we met with him last time he said he wants to become a member of our church! Pray for him Please! He hasnt committed yet, but we hope he does soon. this transfer we are reading the book of mormon as a mission. it is really amazing. we have a section that we have to read everyday. right now i am in 2 nephi 18 if i remember correctly, and i am learning new things. one of my favorite things about it is President Barrow asked us to mark every time the savior speaks. and i never took into though when i had read the book of mormon before exactly who was speaking when. it is surprising to me how much the lord speaks. also my testimony is growing stronger and stronger every day. this branch is amazing. the members are fantastic! i cant say enough good about them. I know that the Lord is working Miracles Everywhere!
The sisters got me cake for my birthday! and we shared it with our english class!!
We went to go see this old village with our english class last thursday!
