Hello family and friends,
Everybody, if you can't read Japanese, it's not a problem. I can't read it either. Anyways, this past week was awesome. We found a way prepared, golden, investigator. So let's begin.
Monday ~ P-day, it was awesome. So we shopped and did all that good stuff including getting haircuts. Then we went downtown to go shoe shopping for me and let's just say, my feet are way big and I was definitely in a way too expensive shop. But it was all good. Anyways not much happened this night. So on to the next day.
Tuesday ~ This was a pretty boring day as we were preparing our electronic area books for inspection the next day. So we were putting in all the old records and stuff into the iPads and it took pretty much all day.
Wednesday ~ So this day we had interviews and training with (President) Ishii Kaicho and his wife. It was really nice. And because he loves to talk to everybody and get to know them more personally we didn't get to leave till very late, 6 o'clockish. Then we had the 1 hour train ride home. Also I left with the district leader on a Kokan (exchange) to go to his area, Gokiso. It was nice. We taught his baptismal candidate and it was awesome. Then we headed home because it was way late.
Thursday ~ I was still in Gokiso so I had a good morning there and after that we
ended the Kokan at a sushi restaurant. From there we went to a member
lesson. It was way cool. We received some very good advice, because he
served a mission and was an AP. After that we had a meeting with our
ward mission leader and that was pretty much our night.
Friday ~ So first we had DTM. And it was a good time. After that on the way
home my tire popped on my bike so we had to go get it fixed. From
there we had a member appointment so we left a bit early to get there
and while on the way we found these two way awesome guys which we will
be meeting with in the near future. Once we arrived we taught about
the atonement and the member loved it. It's kinda hard to teach him
because I am a very visual person and he is blind so he can't see my
object lessons. Any ways after that we were going to go do weekly
planning at the church, but me and my comp got separated and we both
freaked out a bit, but I made my way to the church and eventually he
did to. But we are fine and sometimes accidents happen. So once we
began weekly planning it took all of our night.
Saturday ~ This day was way busy. So after our studies and planning and stuff we
headed to the church for a lesson. The lesson was awesome and the
spirit was definitely there. The member who was there definitely was a
big help. She helped explain things so nicely. After that we went home
ate lunch/dinner and then headed out to visit a member. And he lives
way south, but we went and had a nice little lesson. Then right after
the lesson we got a call from another member saying they were at the
church ready for the lesson I had setup and then proceeded to forget
about. But we rushed to the church and had the lesson. It was way
good. Then the day was done and we went home to go to bed.
Sunday ~ Sunday's are always stressful for missionaries as we worry about a lot
of things. And this Sunday was definitely a stressful one. We had two
investigators who said they were coming and we had to find a ride for
one and then our other one was coming just a bit late and he was
nervous. Anyways they both came and loved it and want to come back.
One could only stay for 1 hour but the other stayed for 3 and we got
to have a lesson with him during 2nd hour and then we had priesthood
meeting together and it was way nice. After church was over we had
meetings till late afternoon and then we went home and finally ate
lunch and then had to turn around and go back to the church to setup
for one of the Shimai's farewell party as she is going home at the end
of this transfer. And that was the week.
P.S.Also if anybody has any questions about what I'm doing or what's
Japan like, you can email me directly and I will try to answer. Also I
do love hearing about everybody so any and all emails are welcome. I
will try to write back short little emails if at all possible.
