WOW ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE!!!! this week was full of so many good things!!! Monday we took a plane to the island and then had to take a really long bus ride to our home! it was so much fun! what an adventure!! It was pretty crazy butu we were able to talk to one persnon right off the plane and get her number so that was really awesome and then the taxi ride to our hose we were ablet o have a brief lesson with him and give him a book of mormom. that was really good to se that we were going ot be okay here! haha
Tuesday we were able to get more settled\ted into our home adn also go shopping! that was good our house had hardly anything so we had to get some food for the week! After that we met the elders and they showed us how to get to the church.... its a 45 minute walkt form our house to the church!!!! ahhh so far! btu when we got htere it was relaly cool the church is super close to the ocean!!! wehn we look out the window we can see th eocean so we got to go over and look at it and them we were introduced to the area by the elders. it was also kind of hard for them because they were whitewashed in just one transfer before us adn the other elders that were here got taken out so its kind of and adventure for all of us! After we got home we called all of the members adn intorduced ourselves! we actually were able to set an appointment us for the next day with on e of them so taht was realy nice!
wednesday we went to Jeju city to have district meeting. it is such a long bus ride!!! and we had to be there earlly so that we could watch the womens meeting of general confernce! that was really good i was able to see it in english adn Sister Kim was able to watch it in Korean. It was a really good district meeting we were able to set goal sall together soi it will be reallycool to see all of us work hard ot goet there! after the meeting we traveled adn came back for the meeting with the member it was really good they werea  realy nice family the mother is active but the daughter is less active so we want ot try and get her to come to church. They were really nice! after that we met wiht the elders adn alos with the District President (like the Stake President) adn we were able to mave dinner with him adn get to know  more about hte area!
Thurday we had a service activity with one of the members. he owns a farm that has oranges and little manderan oranges so we were able to go there adn help him cut back the trees it was really fun we they will be really fun to help harvest later!!! haha then we wathced the elders help him with some other work. we were kind of stuck there!!!
Friday we met with the same lessactive from the other day it was good they fed us lunch. that wasreally nice of them! after we met iwht the elders again and went ot visist a member adn his non member mother but they ended up not being homeso that was sad. we also went and introduced ourselves ot a less active sister taht was really nice!! we went  and visiteed anothter family that is kind of investigating the church they are a really poor family so that was sad to see. we were ablet o get osme really pretty pictures on our dinner time! ahh its os pretty here!!!!
