Week 11 - I'm trying to help! I'm just trying to help!

Title - This is what Lando says when Chewbacca's choking him on Cloud City (because Lando betrayed them).  ** This is the only thing Derrick can think of to make sense for this one.  :)
Hello Everyone!
Well, I'm close to wrapping up on week 2 of my adventures in Korea.  And so the struggle continues...
Elder Jeong and I are still trying to find people to teach.  A lot of the times when we say hello to people they just ignore us.  It's really hard because we just want to share with them something that will help them have better lives!  I'm still having a blast though and I know that all of the challenges and rejections we've been having only make us stronger.  Plus, when we do find someone to teach, it will just be so much better.  We've got some good potentials so hopefully everything works out...
Anyways, last P-day we got to go to Costco!  They have those here!  Yes!  So yeah, we got in with some other elders in our zone that have Costco cards.  It was much like a Costco that you might see in the America except there were a lot more Korean people.  We also saw a ton of other missionaries there which was pretty cool.  We don't have a Costco in our area so it took up most of our P-day traveling there but it was so worth it!  We got to eat Costco pizza!  They didn't have pepperoni though which was weird but whatevs.  They replaced it with a potato pizza.  Potato pizza is really big here for some reason. 
On Tuesday, I got to go to the senior center for service which was pretty fun.  That's our service for every Tuesday!  We just  make crafts with them and then play games or make puzzles with them.  It's so great. 
I got to watch conference this weekend which was so rad.  I have gotten more out of this conference than any conference that I've ever watched.  There were so many talks about the importance of families!  I loved it!  I especially enjoyed L. Tom Perry talking about how all of the religions of the world all agree on the importance of families and how their importance in the world is being distorted.  I realized that one of the best ways that we can relate to others that we teach is by sharing our beliefs about families and their significance in this life and in the life to come.  I am so grateful for my family and that I was raised by loving parents who taught me the ways of the gospel.  I am also so incredibly grateful that we have living prophets and apostles who can guide us in these troubling and confusing times.
Anyways,  I am having a blast in Korea and am so grateful to be a missionary!
Love and miss y'all!
Called to Serve!
