This past week, the oldest district left to Korea so my group is now the oldest! We also had new missionaries come in yesterday that are going to BUSAN! So this was super exciting! There were 3 new girls that I am excited to get to know better. Before the older group left, one of the younger elders asked them if they felt ready to be going to Korea. One wise elder responded, "If you relate the readiness to the amount of Korean you know, you will never be ready." This statement is SO TRUE. I dunno if you know this but Korean is tough. haha. So many words sound so similar and the sentence structure is completely backwards!
I love you all SO much.
- That awkward moment when you show up to gym wearing the EXACT same thing as an elder in your district. Shorts form the bookstore, and the Korea Mission Shirt... haha
- That awkward moment when a native Korean comes in and talks to us in Korean and we realize how little Korean we actually know because our teachers are white and speak really slowly and clearly to us.
- That awkward moment when you talk about bath houses for 45 minutes of class and realize you will sometimes have to teach the gospel nude to a bunch of Korean women. So that will be an adventure to say the least...
- That awkward moment when you break a glass in the lunchroom. and then people stare. a couple missionaries even clapped for me.
