Christmas Eve phone call

I loved being able to talk with David on Christmas eve.  Michael and Sara joined us through speaker phone.

Some of the things that I learned from David:

2 sets of Elders and 1 set of sisters in Mokpo.
They use TP for everything--that is what they use as a napkin
Deliver any kind of food, not just pizza.
It takes them about 1/2 hour to get to the church.  It is 2 floors.  Upstairs is chapel and large room.  There is 1 building in Mokpo.
He fell on the ice and got a bruise the size of a tomato on his rear.

For Christmas eve, we always do finger foods, so this is David's version of that.  Along with cabbage salad.

Elder Aoyagi

Elder Koichi Aoyagi of the 2nd quorom of the Seventy and his wife Shiroko Aoyagi came to Korea to give a training to all the missionaries.  Elder Aoyagi's Training was translated from Japanese to Korean.  The theme of the meeting was, "missionaries from the Book of Mormon," but he also talked about the love of God, and spiritual self-reliance.

On the bus out there,  Jindo (the island), and on the bus back, I got to see lots of cool stuff too.  I got to see lots of Korean cabbages in the fields and see things that they do to grow them.  I got to see three different types of power sources.  I saw a wind turbine, several solar panels, and a building that said something about tide power.  The other thing was a couple banana plants.  They were on a hill that we drove around so it was really quick but they were definitely banana plants.
