Conference - I loved it!
So I finally got to watch conference this week and it was way awesome. I loved the talks and I've got lots of good notes, but before getting into that I'll talk about my week.
Monday ~ Elder Pope was transferring so we cleaned and played some ping pong and then it came time for us to head out. So Pope and I headed out to Tsu so we could stay the night up there with some other missionaries that way Elder Pope and Elder Walker would be able to head out together and me and Elder Takara could stay together and wait for our new companions. That night was way fun. We all chipped in and bought Matsusaka beef which is second only to Kobe beef, so it was expensive, but it was way good. Then we spent the night talking about just lots of random stuff.
Tuesday ~ So we got up early and went to the beach and watched the sun rise. It was way beautiful. Then Elder Pope and Walker left and Elder Takara and I stayed home and got the Tsu apartment all cleaned up and ready to go. Then we headed out to the train station where I caught the train that my new companion, Elder Lyman was on. We then rode back to Ise together and planned the rest of the day and got ready to go. We got all of his stuff situated and then went shopping and lots of other great things. Then we spent the night finding and did pretty decent, but we had kind of got ourselves pretty far from home so we had to book it home.
Wednesday ~ So Lyman got a bit of time to unpack and then we went off and talked to lots of college students. No takers, but it was really good. We then grabbed some corn dogs from 7-11 and then we ran to Eikaiwa to prepare. It went well and everyone liked meeting the new elder. It was a good night.
Thursday ~ So we did a planning day and then we went and visited one of our investigators. It turned into a nice chat and then we had to head out to meet a member. Once we met up with the member we then went out to visit my favorite family, the Noro's. They are way fun to teach and we always have such a good time with them. We had a good lesson and they both seem to be progressing. Like usual we left late so we had to rush home.
Friday ~ So we had to go to set up the church for the conference weekend which included getting a new computer from the stake and getting it all ready to go. We then went out to lunch and it was 久しぶり, hisashiburi look it up, indo curry. It was way good and then we went off to visit lots of people and while we were visiting people we ran in to Higashimoto who came to church with us and we had a lesson and played ping pong at the church till the night was done.
Saturday ~ Was all General Conference all day long. Super awesome but no dendo.
Sunday ~ Pretty similar to Saturday, but we did visit a local Matsuri (festival) as it was ending but nothing to crazy. It was way nice. No pictures though.
Thank you guys so much for the prayers and thoughts. Hope all of you guys are doing well. Talk to you all next week.
