We finished interviews with the last zone plus the Assistants to the President:
In this picture, the young in the black shirt in the very center, in front of the tallest Elder is the one who was baptized. The youth and the ward members came out in great numbers.
This ward is in a smaller city in the country-side. The church is the rented third story of a business. The first floor is a giant phone store, the second floor is a computer and gaming area, and we rent the third floor. Because it is business building, the ward has a baptismal font that is easily constructed with a plastic liner and filled with water. It's an amazing experience.
The second baptism was a young lady who fell in love with the message and with the young ladies teaching her. These are amazing missionaries.
The third baptism was a woman who had been attending the Church for quite some time and had met with many missionaries. Two elders started working with her about six weeks ago and helped her feel such a wonderful spirit that she too wanted to be baptized and make the covenants to follow the Savior, Jesus Christ.
We were invited to attend a Luau with one of the wards where three Hawaiian missionaries are currently serving. They did such an amazing job to help the members prepare a nice Hawaiian meal. They wanted to cook a pig, but finding a place in Seoul to dig a hole to cook a pig is nearly impossible without violating the rules of local parks!
They did some hula and some haka and even taught the members to dance as well. It was a fun evening. We love it when they share all of their talents!
Many have probably seen this picture before, but I love the clear morning air when I run early in the day. The tower is about three miles away.
Well, enough for this week. We'll say farewell to 13 and welcome four this week. We are sad and excited for the week ahead. We hope you find this informative and enjoyable for a peek into the Korea Seoul South Mission! Until next week, know of our love and appreciation for your support for us and especially for our missionaries.
