To answer your questions: I haven't cashed my money order yet, but I still have it and will try and find a bank in which to cash it as soon as I can.
We teach English class every, from 3-4.
And I am terribly sorry, but I did not get the camera situation fixed yet, I discovered that I left the charger in my last house, so I am waiting for an opportunity to retrieve it from Elder Miller. Seeing that it is Elder 우's last week here, I asked Elder Knapp to take lots of pictures and send them to me, so I will have some soon, hopefully.
Thank you for getting that blog set up, it looks good! Sorry, I have been very preoccupied lately, with certain things, so I have not had much opportunity to attend to some of the things you mentioned, or send any letters. More people keep popping up on my email, I find it somewhat difficult and stressful to keep up with everyone, so I apologize to anyone if I miss you sometimes.
My companion is indeed very good at Korean and my language skills are improving, I think. We did have transfer callsand I am staying with Elder Berry. Since Elder 우 is going home, Elder Knapp is getting a new companion, Elder 박동규, who's sister just moved into our ward three weeks ago! What a coincidence! I was in the MTC with him for a while and he is a great person and I'm sure a great missionary.
I have dedicated a good portion of my personal studies lately to the topic of improving our efforts and dedication in missionary work. I have tried a few different things, but I'm not sure how great an influence I am having in the work. I read a talk this morning by President Eyring entitled "Mountains to Climb," in which I felt a sweet confirmation that God is mindful of my situation and that He will help me.
Sometimes, I feel the burden that I am carrying is too great for me to bear, with the constant testing of my testimony and the responsibility I feel to uplift and inspire, while trying to accomplish what we are supposed to do here, but I know that I have someone who knows perfectly how to succor me and help me accomplish what I need to do.
I love you all so very much and pray for you everyday.
