A Day at the Park

Happy Easter, 부활절 - which literally translates to "Resurrection Day" in Korean!

So - Happy Resurrection Day!!

This week has probably been the most exhausting weeks on my mission but in a way those are the weeks when you feel like you did the most! We sure did a lot this week!

On Tuesday we went to the airport with President Morrise again and picked up the new missionaries! Fresh from the MTC!  It's always so fun to pick them up ~ mostly because of all the memories it brings me from my first day in country. There are now two people from Maryland in this mission! #MDReppin'

It's fun but it was a two hour trip there and back on the subway which makes for a very long day.

On Wednesday we has nothing to do ~ that sounds bad but usually our days are scheduled full with lessons and appointments so it was nice to take a little breather. The weather was wonderful so we decided to go out with Sister Moyer's guitar and do singing proselyting at a park. I have never been to any parks in this area so we wanted to check some out!

There me met a lot of cool people and got a few new potential investigators! 2 foreigners with a guitar singing in Korean will get people's attention.  That night we made kimbap with our Bishop and his wife! ​

Seriously - when I get home I'm making everyone Korean food!

That night was the first, of many, hard core rainstorms!

Our phone only got a little bit ruined.....
On Thursday I had another appointment at the hospital . . . and another one on Friday (boring) [Family Note: She's doing fine -- just more unnecessary tests from her fainting spell a couple of weeks ago]. But going to Seoul for an hour there and back twice in a week give you a lot of opportunities to talk with people . . . and getting more Jamba Juice is a win.

Friday was Sister Moyer's Birthday!!!

Happy 22nd B-Day!

Saturday we went hiking with some English Class members to a famous Korean fortress called Namhan Sanseong (남한산성). Lot's of history, lots of scenery and a picnic at the top!

If anyone wants to know what Seoul looks like^^
​​Afterwards, we went to English class and celebrated Sister Moyer's birthday!

The next day, Sunday, was EASTER!!

The weather was rainy and grey but we still tried to make the best of it. After church we went around singing songs about the Resurrection to old grandmothers who sit at benches in parks. They were all so friendly and we were able to bear our testimony to them about Jesus Christ. It was the best!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week! What a happy, hopeful message:

He is Risen. He Lives!

I love you all!
- Sister Holdaway ​

P.S.  --

Because this week was transfers we said goodbye to Elder Lim!

And we welcomed in Elder Preisler:
