정재환

So, hello from Gumi once more!  This week is transfer calls again.  We are hoping and praying that we both stay in Gumi!  Ahhhhh!!!!  I hate transfer call day.  Worst day every six weeks.  So stressful!
 
Anyway.  One of our members discovered my blog.  He mentioned it to me.  I told him that I mentioned him in it and that he should check it out.  The next time that I saw him he told me that he had read through every single blog post that I had written since coming to Gumi (six months worth) and that I did not mention him once.  Oops.  I feel like I must have, but maybe I didn’t mention him by name?  I don’t know.  Regardless, I told him that I would dedicate my next blog to him.  So here it is.
 
정재환 is my favorite little brother of Korea.  He is our ward missionary.  He is the most dedicated and dilligent person that I have ever met.  He takes his calling seriously.  He helps us out like nobody’s business.  He buys us food and comes to our lessons whenever he can.  He gave our investigator a blessing last week (his first ever).  He does so much for our ward and he acts so much older than his age of eighteen.  He has four younger siblings and is the best big brother that I have ever seen.  He is also quite the stylish dresser!
 
His other calling is ward family history specialist.  He set up a three-computer family history center in our church single-handedly.  He blows my mind with how hard he works to fulfill his church obligations!  He also works a full time job at a factory.  Did I mention that he is super smart and fluent in English?  Which is certainly a big help to us on occasion.  He goes to the temple by himself and buys things for our investigators.
 
And yesterday, he had a successful interview with the stake president–his mission papers will be sent in this week!  He is such a great example to me of what it means to be a servant of the Lord and I know that whereever mission he is called will be blessed to have him.
 
He really is like my little brother and I love him to death.  You would all be so lucky to know him.
 
In quick unrelated news.  On Saturday in our 30/30 lesson (30 minutes Gospel and 30 minutes English), I put Sister McKay on the spot and told her that she would teach a song.  She taught “I’m a Little Tea Pot” and then put me on the spot by saying that I would teach the actions.  Turnabout is fair play and I am glad that I have a devious companion who will participate in the game with me.
 
Hey, what are you doing?

About gwenogjones

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving for 18 months in the Korea Busan Mission (as of September 7, 2011). I have a fanatical obsession with Snape and the Harry Potter series (in that order), I recently graduated from university majoring in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations (Arabic). Prior to this major, I was working towards a degree in Jazz Saxophone performance; ergo, I love music. I also love reading, writing, painting, spending time with my friends, playing soccer, watching movies...the usual types of things early 20-somethings enjoy.
