October 3, 2016 (Week 94)

October 3, 2016

Alrighty, this week is in the books...
Bowling with a Member
Monday we went and ate lunch with a member, before the other missionaries transferred. Then went up to the suit place, and got a suit made for me.  So much see a cool pattern, but not quite sure how it would look on a full suit. I ended up getting a gray one. I'm pretty excited. I've got a couple black suits and a nice blue one, so I decided to go a little bit bolder with this one. I get it this Wednesday, so we will see how it turns out!  After that, we shopped and called it a day.  Just kidding... We went and just streetboarded with the district.
Tuesday we had another meal.  A buffet with the bishop and other elders. It was originally just meant for the other elders, but at the last minute, the bishop called and said all to come.  Dang it, I'm fat... There are so many buffets here, and a lot of nice members =fatness.  Oh well, fat and happy I guess hahaha.  After that we just went to find some less-actives, and it was downpouring most of the day, so nothing too exciting happened.
Wednesday we did studies while Elder Du Plessis and Elder Judd went to the office.  Elder Judd is training Elder Roe.  Yes, we now have an Elder Lowe and an Elder Roe. (It's the same spelling in Korean. Shoot, you would not believe the members' reaction on Sunday.  So confused/amazed/cracked so many jokes about it.)  So we met up with them and the sisters (our district is now five from Utah, one from Korea...) for singing practice for the baptism on Saturday. We did that for a little bit, then ate, then got stood up by a super sick guy, then had English class.
Thursday we went to the service, came back, then tried to visit a couple members, then we went and had dinner. After we went and did some more street proselyting, then went to bed.
Friday we had 4 appointments set up. One cancelled because of being sick, one didn't have time anymore, one wasn't in Seoul and didn't tell us, and one we met: Bay Gyoung Whan. We met him with our ward mission leader, who are the same age. It went pretty well.  We talked about the Book of Mormon.  He noticed that the book starts in 600 BC, but the reign of the king in 1 Nephi 1:2/4? didn't start till 597  BC.  So we talked through that, and the fact it was written in Egyptian. We tried to answer those, but man that's hard.  After that, we just went and wandered around the streets.
Elders Lowe, Du Plessis and Mortensen
Saturday we met a guy, who didn't want to keep meeting. That was sad.  Then we had a baptism, but the kids were terrified of it all, so they didn't go through.  Try again later I guess... English class and work, and that's about all that happened.
Sunday we went to church and studied and watched it rain.

 Love ya,
-Elder Mortensen
