다시 한번 일주일 잘 보냈다

(Translation courtesy of Google Translate: "Once a week well spent")
hmmmm.... wish I had an Elder Edwards translation!

Elder Dye, Elder Choi's trainee.
He's from Logan, Utah and knows the Simmons!

Elder Weight and I had a blast this week. We worked super hard and talked to and taught a lot of people and taught a fair amount of lessons! Neither of us know why, but we're seeing a ton of miracles recently. People on the street are being nicer and more receptive (there are still really mean people, but we're starting to find more accepting and kind people), more appointments are being made, when we make calls to get appointments, it's way more effective than usual, and we're finding investigators. It's really awesome. We're both really excited. We proselyted SO much for our first 2 transfers together, so it finally feels like some of that hard work is coming together and getting us people to teach. We're making a lot of calls this week as well because it's so effective, and while we usually only got 1 or 2 appointments a week by calls, now we're getting 1 or 2 a day. Neither of us know why it's working so well, but we're definitely grateful and using it as much as we can!

Ice skating last P-day! 
All of my dreams of being an olympic figure skater are crushed... 
I'm pretty terrible at skating.

Every elder in our house (6 man house) can hold a pitch, which is a first in my whole mission! Usually there's one or two elders in a house who can sing okay, but in this house, everyone can hold a pitch and sing pretty good. So every time we sing (before comp study, and before planning), we all gather in the living room and divide up parts and sing our hearts out. It's so fun. Hymns are so great.

Elder Choi and I on exchanges this week.

A little update on some investigators:
  • Brother Yoo. He didn't come to church this week and we can't get a hold of him. :( But we'll hopefully be able to get in contact this week.
  • Brother Eelhyung. He's our 15 year old investigator. He really likes the church and the Book of Mormon. He punks a lot, but he's a good kid.
  • Jason. Jason is from Nepal and SUPER nice. He's really strong in his own faith and isn't sure he needs to get baptized in this church because he was already baptized, but he's reading the Book of Mormon a lot and praying to know if it's true. Pray that he can receive that answer! 

Ice cream in the winter. Cold.

Sometimes we get calls from people trying to sell us stuff (in Korean). We answer the phone like a Korean, but then when we figure out that it's spam, we'll usually just say in really broken Korean "I... be... foreigner..." and then they hang up super fast. It's super effective.

I love you all! Have a wonderful week!
Love, Elder Edwards
