So Much to be Grateful For

So this week we picked up a new guy... who is being fellowship attacked in all the best ways, so I think he has a lot of potential. I sang a song and gave the holy ghost talk at a baptism (other elders, super cool guy). 

"The Strong Force"

Also talked a lot about superheroes. Guided my companion (asked the questions) to make our district into a super hero team called "the Strong Force" which sounds lame, but it was pretty fun. He's got ice powers, Sister T talks to animals and can do stuff with oceans, Elder C turns into a yellow and squinty eyed mini-hulk thing, Sister Th flies and has laser vision, Elder B has super speed, and I'm the mental master: telepathic and telekinetic. We made up backstories and villains, and plots, and our hideout, and...we have a lot of time on our hands. Jundoing to empty space is difficult.

We went to the orphans this week...and...had some eggnog (fairly lifechanging stuff)...and...that's about it.

Had a funnish Seoul P-day last week. 

With Elder S
In Seoul

This is my District at the Seoul Temple.
The squirrel in the front, Sister Th, is from my generation.  She likes to strike poses.
It's sort of a Sister Th-ism.  We sat together on the plane ride over, and she is going home this week.
We went shopping in Insa dong and saw some cool stuff. Park built where the ruins of a Buddhist temple are.  Some of the ruins still poke out.  That's the place where the Korean independence (from Japan) movement started.

Today was funner. Bang! party at the Pihls. Sister Th's final P-day. I was wrecked by [her] both games, but it was fun to snack and talk with everybody.

We will be with the Pihls for Thanksgiving, and also with the Branch, so we get it twice.  That is, you guessed it, twice the delicious!  Life is always good.

Send lots of pictures, and know that I love all of you.
