Watch your language

One thing that I thought was cool was that as I learned Korean, it taught me some things about English that I hadn't realized before.

Learning the language

Conference always makes me think back on my mission. One of the things that's been on my mind — particularly after Elder Cordon's "language loss" talk — is how hard it was learning the language.

So there's this quote (and hashtag!) that have been in the news a lot lately. It reminds me of something that missionaries all around the world do every day.

That's a wrap!

I always hate it when General Conference is over! It's so exciting to look forward to, and so awesome while it's going on, and then BAM! It's back to earth.

60 Years: 환갑

It's time to party like it's 1956! The missions of Korea are celebrating a Hwangap (환갑), the 60th anniversary of the Church in Korea. A hwangap is the celebration of the completion of the 60-year lunar cycle.

There's going to be a huge celebration Friday night, Sept. 30, at Utah Valley University in Orem in the UCCU Events Center from 5 until 9 p.m. They expect there to be upwards of 5,000 people — it may be a couple of weeks before they get the kimchi smell out of there!

Anyway, it's going to be awesome!
