More Baptisms!

This is just a smidgeon of the recent baptisms. In the month of November we had 24!

New Blog Background!

Don't you love the new blog design?! A big Thank You goes to Helena Ahlstrom Jole, former Taejon (92-93) missionary, with a whole lot of wonderful artistic talent and generosity! I hope she doesn't mind that I found this old, fuzzy photo! I love it!

The Perfect Missionary Apartment

We are visiting every apartment in the mission this transfer, and this one in Suncheon blew me away, I just had to document it! Most missionaries live in rather old and well worn buildings and this one is no exception. I have been to this apartment several times, but it has been transformed by these two sisters who demonstrate how lovely and comfortable even an old house can be when cared for with simplicity and an eye single to the work they are engaged in. We are only a little more than half finished with our visits, but so far, every apartment has been quite clean and acceptable! You can rest assured that your children are not living in squalor!

Music Fireside

Some of the missionaries in the West Gwangju zone planned a wonderful fireside with music and testimonies interspersed by both missionaries and new converts. The music numbers chosen told the story of the restoration of the gospel. There were many investigators in attendance, and the program was wonderful!
