60 Years in Korea

November 8, 2015

Dear Family,
We finally performed that choir piece we've been working on. This last Saturday there was a commemoration for the 60th anniversary of the church in Korea, and they had some speakers and a bunch of musical numbers. It was really weird because it was in a church chapel, but everyone still applauded after the speakers and the musical numbers. I don't understand why they thought it was any different from any other church meeting and it's okay to do that in the chapel. It almost feels like because Koreans are kind of isolated from the main population of members on the other side of the world, it's like they're developing differently or something. They have weird ideas about things in the church, and are really casual about things sometimes.

So yesterday we had some Americans come to our sacrament meeting, it was really surprising at first. But it turns out that it was someone who just finished his mission in Seoul a couple weeks ago, and his parents came to pick him up, and so now they are just sightseeing around Korea before they go home. His dad served in the Busan mission 30 years ago, so he wanted to visit some of the areas he was in. He actually didn't serve in Daeshin, so I'm not sure why they came, but it was still nice to have them. Daeshin Grandma loved the visitors, she had a huge smile on her face the whole time, and kept telling me how exciting it was. And before they left she told them to come to her house and she would feed them. It was adorable.

Well that's about it for now, I hope you have a good week!
