I love it! The people, food, culture, the work and the gospel.

This is my companion and I.   
Han Dong Hee is his name or, they call him Terry.

Hellooooo sorry I didn’t email yesterday it was Buddha’s birthday so it’s a national holiday thus the place was shut down.  How is everyone doing?  Korea is doing well but still hot.  SAWYER GRADUATED!!! YA BUDDY ATTA KID!!! LOOKIN SO GOOD!!!!!!!!

As far as investigators go, we have about 8 right now. They are all so amazing. We picked up one new investigator last week and he is so   bomb.  Just a single guy who is looking for some love.  The rest of our investigators are doing good but I don’t know how many will get baptized its kinda like we are in the middle ground at a stand still with most of them.

Me, I’m doing good.  Because of some kinda stressful situations I have been put in lately, I have been working out at night jumping rope and doing sprints uphill. Yes Dad, I am practicing my lead offs don’t worry about that.  Hahahah gotcha. 

I am almost done with my 2nd Korean test and then I will have midway which I know everything for that also so I am almost halfway done. So that’s good.  I’m sleeping good and boy am I a good cook.  Brandon remember when we made Mongolian beef? Ya I made that for my house.  They loved it ha-ha.  Thank you mom and family for teaching me how to cook and clean, holy smokes you actually really did mean it when you said you were preparing me for a mission. 

Days are getting shorter weeks are getting shorter and I’m just getting more and more tired ha-ha missionary work at its fullest.  But I love it!  I don’t wanna sound like just another kid who went on a mission and say 'its hard work but its so fun' but ha-ha it is.  I love it.  The people, food, culture, the work, and the gospel.  Couldn’t ask for anything better...

Oh ya Dad, ps I played baseball yesterday ha-ha videos coming soon ahhahha ya buddy.  Stay strong everybody this is the best time of our lives!!! Be someone’s miracle!! So so fun!! I love you guys!!

Rough Week

hey everyone it has been a rough week as far as here in korea goes.
one investigator dropped us. he was awesome.  he was so down to come
to church and learn but his first time to church they talked about
saving another ward and then yesterday they talked about the law of
sacrifice. such a bummer.  my companion doesn't want to go visit a guy
we have been visiting he has Alzheimer's so its just a service thing
but he refuses.  i guess it might be hard to understand but for me i
can understand it with grandpa and all you know?  but we do have a girl 
who has accepted to be baptized we just need to decide what day.  change 
is hard. switching to a new companion is tough but that's ok. my korean 
is still bad but I'm trying so that's all that matters.  in a few more 
days i would have been out for 6 months that's pretty crazy.  
whiting family!

Mother's Day

well it was good talking to some of you!  i guess the only news for this week is that i stayed in seocho.  and i have a new companion.  his name is han dong he and he is from korea but moved to new zealand when he was young. way good at korean and way good at english.  seocho is great. my korean is still awful but i am learning a lot faster now.  we made it 6 months hey ya that's awesome right.  so cool. anyway.  that's the only news i got.  we have a lot of potential people that could receive the amazing blessing of baptism soon just depends on if it is their time or not.  we will see.  i am trying my best to stay focused.  talking to everyone was so great today  i love you all. keep the faith. stay strong. remember i love you and enjoy everyday.  be someone miracle.

Sunday, May 6

Our Russian investigator said his relationship with us and our church 'has gone to the next level'. All we did was take him to lunch. So, after 11 years of hate and mistrust we have been able to gain some trust back.  so so amazing. Be someones miracle!

This is my zone.
