Today was beautiful, for the past couple of weeks now we have been attending Seongnam ward. Yesterday I attended a Stake Relief Society activity. I played the piano for our ward. The other wards prepared plays and skits for the evening. There was a meal prepared after the meeting.  Rice, squid, kimchi, beef, and bean sprouts. It was very delicious.  I love spicy food and the food is very flavorful.

The members of our ward are very welcoming, and  helpful. I know some of the sisters by name now. I hope I can be of help to them. I am so grateful that I have the gospel in my life. Here on the other side of the world, the Church, and the gospel is still the same. I am blessed to have the knowledge of Jesus Christ. It is good to be here.

After church today we took the 220 bus to Yatop. Then we walked down to the river. The children played for about a half an hour.  Orrin kicked a ball with some other little boys, and Melody ate snacks and threw rock in the river and played on the stones that cross the river. Today was a pleasant day outside. Adrian liked the grass and kept trying to eat it.  After the kids had played we crossed the river and hopped on the 57 bus to Shinchon dong.

About Trisha Perkins

Hi, my name is Trisha Perkins. I was born in St. George Ut, and raised in many different places. California, Texas, Panama, North Carolina, and Utah have all been home for me. My family moved back to St. George Ut after my father left the army. I was home schooled most of my school years, then enrolled for long distance schooling from an accredited high school. I taught gymnastics and swimming for 3 years. Then I realized I wanted to learn more about children, because I didn't know enough about them and I wanted to be prepared for motherhood. I taught montessori preschool for one year, then I went to a summer camp in New Mexico to teach horse back riding. Now I have to back up a little. A couple of my friends had gone to this same summer camp to teach the year before and one of their friends from camp tagged along with them back to St. George. Here enters the Pioneer. My life would never be the same. I tapped into a soul that I didn't know the voltage of. I met Barry Perkins. He proposed to me while scuba diving off of the Californa coast. We were married in the St. George temple on October 16th 2004. We have always wanted to give our children the best education. Leadership education! We wanted to travel and let them experience different cultures and countries and read great books and be a united family. So here we are starting off on a journey of a lifetime.
