Investigators, Area Leaders and a Beach

A little P-Day action
Another great week in Busan!

This week we were able to meet with a lot of our investigators. On Wednesday we met with a kid named Kim JongChan. He has been taught all of the lessons but he cannot get baptized or come to church because of his parents but he still wants to meet with us and learn more about our church.

On Saturday we met with a man named Jang HanKir, in Korean his name means "one path", or "one way" so I call him One Direction. He wanted to meet with us to learn English and he is actually really good. We met him in a cafe and started our 30/30 program, which is: we teach English for 30 minutes and then about our church for 30 minutes. I showed him my family pictures and he said," Wow your mother is beautiful, and your father he looks like Martin Luther King." hahaha! But the lesson went really good. Turns out, he already had a Book of Mormon from a long time ago and he said it teaches him good life lessons. When we handed him a pamphlet he said,"Okay I will memorize this tonight." We were like, okay great.

Then yesterday we had two of our investigators show up to Sacrament meeting randomly on their own. One of them showed up a few minutes after sacrament and I motioned for him to come sit next to me. He was drinking a cup of coffee the whole sacrament and left for a little while for a smoke break. We definitely need to teach the Word of Wisdom before next Sunday.

Our other investigator showed up while people were bearing their testimonies so my companion, who was playing the piano, went and sat by him. Then a few minutes later I see him walk up to the pulpit. This was his first time ever being at church so I was really surprised. He didn't really bear testimony but he gave a great talk. He talked about how he met the missionaries and how he loves when we come to teach his family. He said, "Elder Johnstun and Elder Matua gave me a present for new years," then he held up his Book of Mormon. He was really proud of it.

Our English class is going really well and we teach a group of crazy old people on Thursdays and Fridays. On Friday we had mission tour with Elder Choi, one of the Asia North area authorities. He was really funny and told us that he was trained to kill someone with one finger in the military so feel free to fall asleep. Him, Elder Whiting, and The Japanese guy, I forgot his name, are over Asia North which includes North Korea. He said Elder Whiting visits North Korea but Elder Choi can't because he is Korean. Elder Choi's advice to us was, "If you don't like it, then just like it." So that is the motto for this transfer.

Hope YoReBoon have a great week.

Love you guys,
Elder Mica Matua
