Ok so it is almost an entire week in korea it is crazy, so much to tell so i will go through it as chronologically as i can remember. at 2-ish in the morning we got on a bus then a train then three airplanes later we were in korea. the travel really wasn't bad, but im glad i dont need to do it again for a while,. funny story, when we got to the airport in busan, we went through customs and were informed that our bags had not made it to pusan with us, so we had to fill out a bunch of paperwork and stuff, and we later found out that for one reason or another the bags had not made it through seoul, but would be at the
mission home at 11:00 that evening. we met the mission president and his wife after that, they are really great people and i love them so much. the next day and a half consisted of training and us meeting our
trainers. my companions name is elder jeong no yeong, i think that is how you spell it i dont know how to romanize korean, but it sounds like that. its funny, because if you remember the best two years and
the part where elder calhoun says 'thats not what they taught me in the mtc' thats kind of exactly how i feel right now. i love it though, i am learning and can feel myself improving every single day.
my companion is really a great elder, and i have learned so much from him already. with christmas we haven't had all that much time to do a lot of proselyting, and the lessons we lined up have fallen through,
but we were apparently in charge of planning and conducting the branch christmas party, and i think it went very well, i love the members of the branch. my first area is an area called andong, it is the northern most mission, is freezing cold, and covers about one third of the entire mission. its us and a pair of sister missionaries over half the mission, i love it! our proselyting area is huge, so we do spend a lot of time on busses, but that just means we can talk to people who have nowhere to go for the nest few minutes. its perfect. the food is really good, i haven't ate anything i dont like yet. lots of rice, so much rice, its a good thing i like rice. the bus ride here fro the mission home is about 3 hours long. we have to do it again o day to
get ready for the mission christmas party. i cant wait for the christmas party, all the missionaries will be there. but im more excited for afterwards, when we get to go spread the message of the gospel on christmas day. anyways, i love this gospel and korea and everything about both.
