Happy 4th of July! We’ll have to have a late BBQ once I get back. This last week went by pretty quick. It was almost super good. We met with Park Jongmoon and he said he’d come out to church on Sunday and get baptized on the 10th. It was all looking perfect but he ended up not coming and we haven’t been able to get a hold of him. It’s super sad and disappointing. We’re trying to do all we can to help our investigators, but no one pulls through! He still has potential though, I just really hope we can meet him again and help him out.
As for our other investigators, honestly they don’t really have much potential. We were considering dropping 2 of them last week but ended up not. They are both English learning investigators. 1 just doesn’t really have gospel interest, and 1 of them is 23 and wants to pick up a religion once he’s settled down on his own because his dad doesn’t like religion. He’s a sweet guy, just really lonely so he needs us.
In other news, President Shin is now in America and we now have President Madsen here! WE haven’t met him yet but we have talked on the phone a couple of times. He seems like a great guy. He used to be in the military and he seems like a very straight edge kind of man. I am excited to meet him this Wednesday when he comes down to Gwangju. Also, the 3 Filipina sisters leave today, so now our district is down to just 6 people. It’s still bigger than my district of 4 in Iksan! It has been fun working with them and their investigators and experiencing a little bit of Filipino culture.
Yeah, that’s about it for this week. It was super rainy and we spent a lot of time just out in the rain but time is still going by fast. Thank you for all the prayers and support!
