September Arrivals and Departures

We said farewell to Elder Brandon Taysom today. We call him the "last man standing" since everyone in his "donghee" returned a little earlier this month. It's so hard to say goodbye to these wonderful missionaries that we become so attached to, but we know great things are ahead for him!
Sister Erdenazaya
Elders Lee Won Ki, An Go Beom and Pak In Chul
New missionaries and their trainers: Sisters Erdenazaya and Erickson, Elders Millard, An, Pak, Cox, Stephens and Lee.

We have been waiting five long months for the arrival of Sister Erdenazaya from Mongolia. After a lot of red tape we finally were able to get a visa for her. In the meantime, she has been serving in the Mongolian Mission for the past four months where she had phenomenal success, baptizing nine people! We have several Mongolian investigators here in Korea and it will be so wonderful to have a native speaker be able to befriend and teach them! We also received three wonderful new Korean Elders this week. We are so blessed!
Enjoying our favorite lunchtime restaurant!
