More sightseeing, Elder Holland and loving this place

More sightseeing with our investigator and his son
Not too much to report this week, just work as usual.

This week Elder Holland came to Korea. He only went to Seoul since Elder Bednar came to Busan last time, so we watched the live broadcast. On Friday he gave a talk along with his wife, Elder Choi, and Elder Whiting. On Saturday night they did a Q & A for the single adults and it was really good.

Elder Holland spoke about how he was invited to speak at a Catholic university in Seoul last week. He said to them, "I'm not telling you that you have to believe what I am saying, but you BETTER believe that I believe what I'm saying." After, Elder Holland explained our church and bore his testimony at the university, the professor jumped up out of his chair and said, 'you guys all better listen to this man, this is very important'.

His talk on Friday was all about how you cannot deny the evidence. He shared the story of Peter healing the man on the temple steps. After Elder Choi gave his talk Elder Holland got up and said, "I'm gonna let you guys in on a little secret; this is one of the speakers in the upcoming general conference, right after President Monson, right before President Uchtdorf, the big three.' Then he said, 'don't tell President Monson I told you or he is going to assign me to Kiribati."

I learned so much from Elder Bednar and he kept saying how amazing the Korean latter day saints are and I get to see that everyday. I am so grateful to be serving in such an amazing place and doing the Lord's work.

Love all you guys and have a great week.
Elder Mica Matua
