Americans, drunks and pounding food

Our new friends (drunk guy in blue)
Hey family,

Sounds like the US is having some troubles. I still cant believe Donald Trump is going to be the President. Hopefully the US will still be there in two years for me to come back to.

But everything in Korea is going good. I'm still trying to get used to the mission. The ward members are really awesome here. Our ward mission leader is named So Moon Soo and he has helped us out so much. We have still been doing a lot of street contacting. A few days a ago we met a guy named Chris from New York. We were just walking back to our apartment at night and we stopped to talk to him. He teaches english here to little kids. He guessed that we were Mormons and we started to teach him about our church. His dad is Jewish and his mom is Catholic but he was still really interested in our message. We gave him a Book of Mormon and told him to email him next week. At the end of our conversation he told us that he has always known about the Mormons and he has sort of been waiting for some to come talk to him. It was good to talk to someone in English for once and hopefully that goes well.

Still eating at McDonald's
On Wednesday we were walking back to our apartment and it was about 8:45 p.m. when we saw a man walk out of a resturaunt to feed his dog that he tied up outside. Right when he saw me he was like, American? Then he started asking me all these questions about Trump and Clinton but I had no idea what he was saying. Then he was like, 'come inside and eat.' We tried to tell him we had to be home in a fwe minutes but he basically dragged us in. He was so drunk. He walked us in and sat us down at his table with two of his friends and gave us food. It was probably one of the funniest nights here. The drunk guys just went off telling jokes, making faces, and standing up doing random things. We tried to leave because we were supposed to be in our apartment but he said we had to finish all the food so we pounded so much meat in like two minutes. I'm starting to get used to being in Korea. I miss you guys a lot.

Love ya'll
