Finding fun, Stake Conference and more

AAAHHHHH I miss [USA] Sevens! But anyway it was a good week in Korea. We had Busan stake conference on sunday which was awesome. Elder Yamashita, one of our area seventies, came to speak. As well as president and sister Barrow. Elder Yamashita shared a story of a lion who was raised by sheep so he thought he was a sheep until he realized his true identity, then he asked us if we were lions acting like sheep. Our investigator came halfway through the last talk and then left before it was over but it was still cool that he came so far to attend.

Last night we did board proselyting with the Sisters and right when we started, this guy came up and started talking to my companion, so he listened to him while we proselyted. after two hours I looked back and the guy was still talking to him. It got late and the sisters left so I went to see what they were talking about. It was all in Korean so I couldn't pick up 100% of what he was saying but the guy was going off that we shouldn't be telling people that Jesus is the son of God and that we were bad people, but my companion was too scared to stop him. Right when I went over I just said, 'It's getting late but we would love to talk later and share more about our church,' But he said he wasn't interested. Then we tried to bear testimony, but he kept yelling over us saying that what we were teaching is wrong. He kept rambling on and on so cut I him off and said, 'Do you have any interest in what we have to share?' He said "no you guys are fake." So I told him, 'then we have to go find people who are interested.' We started walking away and he followed us to the subway and continued to talk. We said nice to meet you and started walking down the stairs. But as we turned to walk away the guy grabs my companions butt. I just started busting up. There are so many weird people in Korea but you gotta love em. But as we went down in the subway to go home we met a really cool kid JongChan who wanted to meet with us later.

On thursday I got to go on exchanges with Elder Avila who is from Australia and it was my first time serving with someone who has been here less time with me so it was really fun. We went to his area and he has only been there for two weeks so we got lost about a hundred times but somehow we always ended up in the right place. That's one of the cool things about being a missionary. You can literally just walk anywhere and end up right where you're supposed to be, even if it wasn't where you were trying to go.


Love you all,
Elder Mica Matua
