Hello! (17 August 2014)

I am sending this email really late... You should all be sleeping, unless one of you has decided to move to the Far East or another part of the world. 

Right now as I type, everything is being replayed in my mind in a British accent. We just got done meeting with our English friend. Haha. Our ward mission leader taught us a very interesting term to call someone who is Korean, but grew up in another country, so isn't really Korean. Banana. Hahaha. White on the inside, but yellow on the outside. I can say this because I am simply repeating what he said verbatim. Not my words, but the words of a Korean. Haha.

Anyways. This week. We taught lots of lessons. Lots of them. And we didn't have a whole lot of time to proselyte because of it, but we still managed to meet new people. It is going really well, honestly. 

One of the people we are meeting with might get baptized this week. At least he told a member that he was going to get baptized this week. So that is a really good sign. He really loves the church and everything we have taught him. He definitely feels as though there is nothing wrong with it, but he has been lacking that sort of sureness that it is really God's restored church. So, we have been working with him on that, helping him to feel the spirit more. He is quite spiritually mature and understands things really well. He seemed to have a really good time at church on Sunday, and told me that he really felt something in one of the talks. So, I think he is beginning to gain his own testimony. I am actually glad that he has been careful with the decision and that he continues to be. It shows that he understands its gravity and meaning. That it isn't something that anyone should do just because, but he should be sure. Anyways. He is a really good guy. 

I met someone from Austin in Korea! Haha. He got married to a Korean and now lives in Korea. His name is Noah Pierce. We had lots of delicious food together and it was really fun. His wife is Korean, obviously. And it is funny to see Koreans that speak English like Americans. Haha. It is pretty weird. I just am not used to it. Haha. But it was great, and I was reminded of how the gospel can really solve a lot of normal, everyday, and common problems that go on in people's lives. Just things they need, or want, and really desire in really deep parts of their hearts. That God is willing to grant those things to us and has made them clear to us through the restoration of His gospel and Church. 

The British accent has disappeared. Sometimes a Texan accent comes out. 

Anyways. I love you all. Tomorrow, we are going to the Temple. That is why I am writing so late. Today was not P-day! Ha.

Keep me in your prayers.
