Happy Chinese New Year everybody! We kicked off the week going with our district to a Meerkat cafe. Confusion aside, not a place where you eat them, but you can buy drinks and sit and play with them. It's a magical thing, there are friendly Meerkats, Raccoons, those small Kangaroos that may as well be called Kangaroos because that's what everyone calls them anyways...obviously it was a great day.
Anyways, Chinese New Year!! is huge here, way bigger than Christmas. (sad) Big holidays normally mean no one on the streets, which is true, but in my area it means there are a million foreigners. I've never seen more foreigners in Korea than I have this week! They always say the only scary thing about Korea are the foreigners, which after this week, I fully agree. Everyone was out of town for the most part this week, so we weren't able to meet with very many people, but we took that time to heart attack all of the members front doors. Along the way we met a lot of really cool people, just all around was a good time!
A cool miracle form this week!we were sitting with one of our investigators, Sacrament ended, and there is this lady sitting in the back of the room that I've never seen before. We go up and start talking to her, turns out she started investigating the church like 10 years ago and used to come to church all the time. She had a baptismal service and right before it started, her husband called and said if she went through with it to not come home. She still loves the church and knows it's true. It's so amazing how much some people have to sacrifice for the church, when I feel like I've just always had it. I feel like that is a lesson I'm never going to stop learning.
