Wow, Thanksgiving!

We were severely lacking in the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, jello, rolls etc etc department, so we ordered chicken!  It was soo good!!!!  (I'm just trying to make myself feel better about it...But it really was delicious!)

Our Thanksgiving

A couple weeks ago for FHE (us missionaries in the ward do it with some members and our investigators) for our activity we played 'spoons,' but we didn't use spoons... We used chopsticks! ...So I guess we probably should have called it 'chopsticks'....It was pretty difficult explaining the game in Korean, but somehow we managed!
Recently we've gotten two new investigators who are absolutely awesome!!! We gave them the English names of Spencer and Jason.  They were both referred to us by a member in the ward who was studying at BYU last year (served a mission in Anaheim, CA a bit before that) and came back to Korea to go to the military service cause it's required for Koreans.  But he's been here a few weeks and he got us these two amazing investigators.  People we couldn't have found or set things up the way they are, without a member behind it.  Member missionary work is SOOOO important!!! (just wanted to put a plug in for that)  Spencer wants to learn English, wants to learn about the church and gospel, and wan'ts to go on a mission of all things!  Jason after talking with our member, wants to go to BYU-Hawaii to study really really bad.  So he wants to get better at English with us and to work with us to strengthen his very very small testimony and to become a member.  They're super funny and great to meet with! I love them soo much!  Whenever we meet them, I never want to transfer out of this area because they're just the best!!! I have such high hopes for their progression!
The coffee shops around Gwangju (my city) are all putting up Christmas trees and Christmas lights, but the Christmas spirit is nothing like in the states.  Totally different and kind of bizarre. It's just like any other holiday here.  Weird...
Anyways, love you all! Have a great Decembery week!
