A Walk Through Namdaemun

The Elders in Namdaemun.

Elder White among the kitchen wares.

Sister Gubler and Elder White go home tomorrow! Since it was just the two of them we get the privilege of perusing Seoul with them before they leave.

“I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.”

That is what Monet said. We have this neighborhood flower man. He really likes us. Probably because we buy flowers. He is always giving us a deal and throwing in extra flowers. I tried, but I cannot live without them. Elder Florist spoiled me.

Sometimes You Can't Find....

a seat on the subway! Actually Elder K found this chair outside of our apartment, cleaned it up and took it to Natasha and Byung Lok, the couple we are teaching and hoping to get back to church. When we visit them they only have three chairs. Byung Lok sits on a big box full of Natasha's books. She loves her books so she is pleased there is a now a real chair for her husband!

Ee Hwa Jung

Ee Hwa Jung is baptized on Saturday. She loves music and kids! Perfect for Primary, right! She is with her mother in this picture. Her mother is not a member of the church so we were especially thrilled to have her at the baptism.

One of the Best Parts of a Korean Summer!

I happened to catch a Buddhist monk wearing this incredible material. Specially treated to be stiff, it can be made of linen, ramie, hemp, cotton or silk. Evidently when washed it retains the stiffness. When the weather turned hot it appeared like magic on the older generation of Koreans. It must be cool and the stiffness helps keep the fabric off your body.
