Well, I am officially down to 3 weeks as of TOMORROW!!! This is so crazy!! Carol and I spent the morning shopping and were quite successful, even though there is still a long list of random stuff to get. We met with the former mission presidents of the Busan mission on Sunday (Ken and Cathy Jennings-parents of Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings-just a little claim to fame there). I learned exciting things like I will spend most of my nights sleeping on the floor, I can ship my luggage and belongings from place to place during transfers, and the Korean people are VERY ethnocentric. They refer to Korea as "their country," and are very opinionated. I guess that will be a good humbling experience for me. (Yes I like things to go my way as well--doesn't everyone??) I also learned that ibuprofen costs about $1 a tablet, sooooo needless to say, I will be taking QUITE a stock with me! Despite all the crazy things I will experience, I know that I am meant to serve in Busan, Korea. I am excited to teach the Korean people all about the gospel of Jesus Christ and share my love of it, and testimony with them!
