March 28, 2016 (Week 67)

March 28, 2016

Ok, this week....
Tandem Bike Ride
Monday we rode around the famous lake in our city, on tandem bikes! That was pretty sick! I got to sit in the back and play with the camera most of the time. That was pretty fun. We did that, then went and played on the beach for a little bit. We took some pretty cliche pics, just for the fun of it haha After, we met Kim Dohng Bum, and talked about the Plan of Salvation.  He won't commit to baptism, because he wants to work on Sundays... So, get him to quit smoking, drinking, and lottery, and pretty soon he won't have to work on Sunday! Pretty good lesson, sad that he won't commit just yet. Pretty fun day overall.
Tuesday we went, taught English class... lame....   Then we met 이수훈. He is a 15 year old kid, and it was really awkward.  He came late, and when he came, he said hi to us and this girl that was in the same intersection. Turns out his sister was waiting for him too. He acted really weird, so we couldn't figure out if 1) it was him and 2) what to do.  So we gave them a church tour, and then bought them ice cream and invited them to the Easter party and church.  The most awkward lesson of my life. They were really weird.  After we met Go Young Ook. He is our 29 year old buddy. Super cool, had a good lesson about the Plan of Salvation.
Wednesday, we had district meeting then I went on exchanges with Elder Kim She Hyun. Good guy, we didn't do much.  It was raining, we had to catch the other elders to give them their phone, he had to do district leader stuff, then we had movie night.  Once again, Kim Dohng Bum and his buddies came.. (They're more reliable than the members here... I love these guys!)
Thursday, we rode buses up to Sok Cho, then rode them back and had English class. Not much else happened that day.
Friday, we had planning, then English class, then we taught Go Young Ook again. This time he had a lot of English questions, and didn't seem too interested in gospel topics.  It seems like he does this for Korean practice for us, doesn't really personalize it. Love this guy, but he's a struggle as an investigator.
Saturday, we did Easter stuff. We prepped, taught English class, then prepped more, and actually did it. As the "assistant to the district leader" (since he lives an hour away in another area), I kinda do things down here.  I realized I hate talking to crowds and having to lead the show, but it went over well. We played water balloon games, then a bunch of Minute-To-Win-It games.  We had about 20 people come, 4 non-members (One sister brought her sister, and Kim brought his buddies :D) Super cool.
Playing at the beach
Sunday was church, then we rode a bus 40 minutes to meet Michael.  He lives in the middle of nowhere,  in his 50's, lived in the US for 20 years, so fluent still at English. We had a great talk with him. He seems pretty interested. Can't really explain him, but he is a REALLY interesting guy. That took

up most of our night.

Well, take care, happy Easter,
-Elder Mortensen
