July 10, 2016

Dear Family,

I talked to Elder Kim on the phone last night, and he says he's feeling better and will probably come back on the next transfer day, so two weeks from today. So yep, things are going pretty well with him it seems.

Elder Snyder is really cool. Here's a picture of him and a member (Brother JJH) who took us out for lunch last p day.

The member took us out to eat small intestines, which was a first for me (I've only had large intestines and rectum before), so it was pretty exciting. This is only a picture, so you'll just have to imagine the deliciousness that I experienced. Koreans eat this stuff like it's brownies and ice cream:

Afterwards, Brother J took us to a naval museum here in Jinhae. I actually went to it once last year, so maybe you've seen pictures of it before. 

On Wednesday, N (the mom of the Chilean family) invited us over for lunch again, and this time she made Chilean food. It was amazing, almost as good as the intestines. M had to leave for work, but we were able to teach their daughter the Restoration and give her another copy of the Book of Mormon in Spanish. N was busy doing some other stuff and unfortunately wasn't able to listen to the lesson. But she is going back to Chile tomorrow, and invited us and the sisters for lunch today to say goodbye before she leaves, so we'll be able to teach her then. Here's a picture of the family last English class (with a couple other Koreans who attended).

And to answer your questions...

It takes an hour by car from Busan to Jinhae, or and hour and a half by bus.

The Chilean family accepts our message really well, the hard part is getting a chance to teach them because they are so busy with work and school.

We teach English class twice a week:  Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon.

The translation of 역시남미 is basically "classic South American." When you say that in English it sounds kind of negative, but it's positive in Korean, so it's hard to translate.

Okay, well this is my second-to-last email, so I hope it was entertaining :)

Have a great week!

Elder Hines
