Title - Luke says to Yoda, "I'm not afraid", while Luke is trying to convince Yoda that he's ready to be trained to be a Jedi. Yoda's response is, "you will be... you will be."

This week has been kind of slow. We didn't really have any opportunities to teach which was kind of frustrating, but alas, it happens. Our most progressing investigators, 경진수 (Gyeong Jinsu) was out of town this week so we didn't get the chance to meet with him. He's the guy who has a baptismal date.
Anyways, yeah nothing really happened.
On Monday, it was Elder Weiss's birthday (He's one of the Elders in our district and also someone I know from Camas). Since it was P-day, we went to get expensive burgers at Outback and Elder Weiss and his companion were going to get steaks. Outback didn't have any burgers though! What the flip?! So we ended up just going to the the burger buffet down the street from our house at Burger Mine which was choice! It was so much better than Outback (and cheaper! and more food!).
On Wednesday, I started an exchange with Elder Weiss which was really fun. We got to talk a lot about the goings on back in Camas and all of the people that we know that ended up going on missions (Choice!). We also talked a lot about virtue and how important it is to not only have pure thoughts, but also to refrain from thinking about things that will distract from the work.
On Thursday, after the exchange ended, Elder Jeong and I were meeting a less-active that we've been working with, 이영희 (Ee Younghee). We've been reading the Book of Mormon with him which he has really been enjoying. After we read the Book of Mormon we went to the 목욕탕 with 이영희. A 목욕탕 is like this bath house thing. It's actually really common for Korean people to go to them. There's just like pools and showers there that you can lounge around in. It's pretty refreshing.
On Sunday, we got to eat at the Diffin's house on base. They are so cool! They made us steak and ribs and it was freakin awesome!
This week, our mission was challenged by the AP's and our mission president to do 100 hours of missionary work so Elder Jeong and I accepted the challenge. We wake up at 5:30 every morning and have to forego our study and meal times. We can still eat, but we have to be teaching someone. Anyways, since I only have two weeks left of training. I kind of see this challenge as a sort of Missionary Trials before I can end my missionary training. Also, that means that e-mail time for this week is going to have to be cut short. It's going to be hard but I know that Heavenly Father will bless us for our sacrifices and that we will have more opportunities to find those who have been prepared to hear the message of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! It's going to be crazy!
Reed! Congratulations on being baptized! That's so cool! Love you Reed! I'm proud of you!
Love and Miss Y'all!
