That is super crazy news. And I'm pretty sure that is unconstitutional, isn't marriage a states' rights issue, if it's a government issue at all?
That's really cool how Heavenly Father answered your prayers. KH is doing really well, he accepts everything we teach him. I would say the only problem (and it's a problem that a lot of Koreans tend to have) is that they take everything you tell them, but don't really see the significance of it. I get the feeling that after we teach him, he's just like, "oh, that's a cool story," and doesn't think too much about it. This week he took us to a really fancy restaurant on the side of the mountain, and we ate Korean barbeque and salad pizza (literally a salad on a pizza, pretty weird). We taught him part of the plan of salvation, and he really liked it. He thinks that family is really important, and so he is interested in building good family relationships. We gave him a copy of The Family: A Proclamation to the World, hopefully he likes that. Something cool that he told us this week is that the reason why he likes meeting with us so much is because of the influence we seem to have on him. He said that since he has been meeting with us, he has been happier. Now the trick is getting him to realize that it's not us, but the gospel that makes him feel that way. He has so much potential, it's so exciting! :)
The Shincheonji guy hasn't tried to call us yet, luckily. I'm actually pretty surprised at that, he seemed abnormally happy to receive our phone number.
Yep, it's that 'You Never Know' video. The point we were trying to make is that even though it doesn't seem like you have an influence on others, you really do, so share the gospel with those you know.
Not too much happened this week. Most of our time was taken up by the sister missionaries. They have a couple new investigators with English interest, so we've been helping them teach. And then the sisters moved into a different house, so we spent a lot of time helping them with that. Apparently the area around their old house, there are a lot of scary foreigners that stalk them, so they didn't feel safe there. I think they just wanted a bigger house.
The best thing that happened this week is that I got a recipe for yangnyum sauce, which is the delicious sauce they put on fried chicken. It's like sweet and spicy, and probably tied with bacon for one of the greatest gifts given to man. I don't remember the ratio, but the ingredients are ketchup, garlic, vinegar, water, soy sauce, and corn syrup. You just mix it together and call it good. That probably sounds pretty disgusting, but you are just going to have to trust me on this. If you happen to find a recipe online, you'll have to try making it and see what you think :)
I love you, have a great week!
