Wow this week was really good we were able to do a lot of really good things. and we were also able to recive a "new Vision" from President Barrow... the new Vision is that every companionship in the Korea Busan mission gets one baptism every week!! wow that was kind of a crazy thought at first! when i heard this i though taht it is going ot be impossible but as we talked aboutit as a district we all decided that it is oging ot be some thing that we can do because it is the inspiration that Presisdent Barrow recieved for our mission. i think that it wil take a lot of hard work and faith but i know that because this is the Lords work then it will happen!  We will be having a lot of miracles with this new goal and i am excited to be part of this! President Barrow actually saw something simmilar in his mission so i know that it can happen!
Momday we went o the largest aquarioum in Asia!! that was reall cool! it was really fun and we got to take a lot of cool pictures adn i got to see dolphins jusp really high that wass really aweome! Tuesday we planned ot have service but then it got cancled so we had to make a new plan we were able ot visit a menber in the branch that was really nice.  we also went to visist another less active that actually intoduced us to one of her friends that w might be able to teach!

It was also tranfer call night! ahh i reall didnt want ot leave this area! we got a call from President Barrow adn normally if he calls that means that you are goign ot be training or get anohter calling. but wehn we tlaked ot hin he said he got the wrong number!! ahhh it was crazy!!! we are staying her in Seogwipo together!! yay!
