Hello from Wonju! It was cold this week.

It's very weird to see a Korean with facial hair. I guess their growing hair ability is different from Americans or something, because you almost never see facial hair here. Except for the occasional super super old grandpas who haven't shaved for their whole life, and it's a really long and patchy white beard. Those are pretty cool. Anyway, I met a guy this week on the street with a SWEET mexi-stache. He was awesome and happy and very very drunk. He told Elder Murdock and I that he was now adopting us into his family and whenever we're hungry to call him and he'll buy us whatever we want. Sweet.

It was another awesome week this week. God is still putting people in our path, and we're doing our best to teach them and help them come unto Christ. On Tuesday, a guy walked up to us on the street and ordered us to tell him about the Book of Mormon. He then took one and we met him the next day at the church, where he took one each of the Restoration, Plan of Salvation, and Gospel of Jesus Christ pamphlets and told us to teach him everything. He's super awesome. We're going to meet with him again this week, and we'll see how that goes. His name is Mister Chway.

In answer to Dad's questions:
  1. Do you keep a list of active investigators? Yes. We keep their records in the Area book and also have a big white board in our room with all the people we're working with.
  2. How many people are on it? We are currently working with 7 investigators right now. 5 of which are new investigators that we found in the past 2 weeks. :)
  3. How many people were on it in Taebaek? One.
  4. Do you report how many discussions you give in a week? Yes.
  5. What's the number on a good week? A good week would be 2-3 lessons. 5 if you're killing it. Elder Murdock and I got 8 last week and 9 this week :)
  6. On average, how many discussions in a week in Taebaek? One. Hopefully.
Time is flying frighteningly fast. (I'm killing that alliteration thing.) The days are zooming by and the weeks are going even faster. The work is going quite swimmingly.

Life is good!
Love, Elder Edwards
