Witches and Pumpkins and Bats, oh my!

That sums up the decorations for our Halloween party so far. We've been working overtime for this party, so we're really hoping that we'll get lots of people to come!
The haunted house is really starting to shape up. There were some bumps in the road, but hopefully it'll work out alright. The ward is also starting to get really on board, which is a relief. We're going to do all the publicizing this week. We'll see how things turn out!

We also had our zone conference this week. It was cool to meet with the zone, even though there were only a few new people in it this transfer. There were a couple of elders that came that I know, though. So I got to say hi to them.

Lastly, we met with a cool guy from Cameroon. We found him on the call sheets, and he's very down to meet with us. He's sweet! We made some great conversation with him last night at a park (that turned out to be the park where I got hit in the eye all those months ago. There were some memories stirred). He's out here studying to get a business degree, but he hasn't decided what he's going to do with it when he gets it. He's stuck between a couple of options. Anyways. He would like to learn more about the church, so we're going to call him again sometime this week so that we can teach him. OH! And he spoke French as well as English! We totally talked for a bit in French. It was awesome, but I'm definitely rusty. We talked about it with the other Elders in the house later that night, and Elder Knapp brought up how he could understand everything that we were saying without really knowing any French. We all got a little exasperated about being in Korea... It was funny, though

It's kind of weird how it works out that the investigators that we have that we can depend on for gospel interest are both foreigners. None of the Koreans that we work with care about that, except for our recent convert, 정현, but he doesn't meet with us lately. No big deal, it's just kind of funny how it's working out that way.

Anyways. That's the week. Happy Birthday to Chris and Levi this month! Hope that they were fun ones!

Love you all!
