Happy 추석! Aka Korean Thanksgiving! 

This is the biggest holiday in Korea and pretty much we do what we do at Thanksgiving, which is eat lots of food! We have a dinner sized meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for three days in a row. Its a lot! It is really fun because you pretty much eat. This and New Year are the only holidays that Koreans get to take a big break from school/work and go see family. It is such a great experience! 

Living in a 4 person apartment has been really fun! So much fun! We have the two Americans, The Korean, and The Australian. It is literally the best thing ever. There are so many funny moments and sometimes we cannot understand each other the clearest, but we laugh about it and it ends up being so much fun! Next week we get transfer calls, and I am not going to lie, I am not excited for it! 

The Members in Cheom-dan are so lovely! I love them so much! Member missionary work is such a blessing in this area. Everybody is always so excited to help the missionaries out and they are always so thrilled to help us out. I am also so glad that mommy got to meet Alice (Hyung-jeong)! Thank you so much for taking care of her. I had dinner with her family again last night, and they are so thankful!

We went to the bamboo forest on Monday, it was such a blast! 

We have this awesome investigator that is right now preparing to go to BYU and she also wants to get baptized soon. It is cool to see how there are so many seeds that are already planted in this area! So exciting!  

I heard that Comic Con was a huge success, congrats! I hope you all got your nerd on.   haha

I love you all so much! Have a great week!!
