Writing emails is hard, sometimes.
If you can't tell I'm kind of have no will to write this email. Any emails in fact it's kind of weird. Maybe I feel like doing it next week but who knows.
Monday ~ Pretty routine but good P-day. We had lots of shopping and cleaning and emailing and stuff. It was a good recharge day. And then of course we went out and did some contacting and then that night we did some scheduling of appointments so we could work around the conference that would happen on Saturday, Elder Holland was coming so yeah it was kind of important.
Tuesday ~ So in the morning we had skype interviews with our mission President. It was a good talk and like always I took a little too long. But it's all good. After that we had an appointment so we had to hustle out there and then we learned that the guy had caught a cold so he had to cancel. So we went out to lunch at a little fast food joint and then hit the streets again and talked to lots of cool people and then we had to run off to Eikaiwa to teach English. And that clapped off our night.
Wednesday ~ So me and my comp decided to try dieting so he can finally lose that MTC weight. I to got a bit heavier as I probably ate a bit more as a branch president so I agreed. So this was the start day but then after we met with the senior couple missionaries in the morning to discuss less active work. After that they offered to take us out so we had to agree and there went our diet so it would start the next day. After all of that we went to service and had a great time helping the old people. Then we ran off to try and meet with our Ward mission leader but he had to work late so we didn't get to meet with him so we started the long trek home and it took a long time. But that was the night for us.
Thursday ~ So we got a text that morning that the Holland conference was canceled and so We were all way disappointed and so we began weekly planning on a pretty low note. So we started making banana bread as we were planning and it was a good time spent. We re-planned all of our days that now had nothing on them and planned who to give the bread to that we were making. After all of that we got out of the house and started doing street contacting, because that's way fun. But that was pretty much our day.
Friday ~ So we wake up and as we are getting ready we got a surprise text from the president. And it was awesome news. Holland was coming to visit us and the conference was back on. We were way excited and so we got ready to take the trains down to Nagoya and stay the night with some other elders. So we spent the rest of the day on the trains to Nagoya. It's kind of far away.
Saturday ~ So Holland Conference was way awesome. He answered so many questions and he "interviewed" us as he shook our hands. So he looked into our eyes and I honestly felt him search my soul. Good news he didn't send me home so he sees that my conduct as good and I felt way awesome to meet him. After that he talked and it was way amazing and it was way awesome. I have lots of notes so I'll share after I get home maybe. And then after the conference I met up with some friends and then we went back to the apartment and cleaned up our stuff and went back. Another long train ride. Then after we got back we hit the ground running and we ran to a few appointments and then we went home where we hit the sack.
Sunday ~ So we had church and I introduced myself in sacrament meeting, again everyone is surprised at the five sisters thing. And then we had some good classes and then after that we gave the priesthood to the recent convert here and then after all of that we had some meetings and then we were supposed to have a meeting with an investigator and that got canceled. So we went home and ate some dinner and then went back to the church to watch the Holland devotional that was for the entirety of the church in Japan. It was also way awesome. And because it went long we had to rush home and that ended our week.
Well looks like I actually wrote and email so looks like I can do hard things 😜. Hope everyone is doing well and that they are having a good week. I plan to write responses to everyone's emails this week and I'll ship them out next week.
