This week went really well. It was pretty busy. And pretty rainy. And pretty cold. I've heard that it only gets colder and rainier from here on out. I can't believe Christmas is this week. Doesn't really feel like it as a missionary. Especially a missionary in Japan. People have to work on Christmas....it's really not a Christian country at all. I am kind of missing the usual Christmas spirit and what not, but I figure it makes it easier being away from everyone.
Anyone who speaks ENlgish is going out of town for the Holidays it
seems...so things have been slow going in terms of lessons....BUT we
actually did find like 4 new investigators last week. We are teaching
alot of Phillipino people. They are so into learning the gospel and
they have so much love and enthusiasm for the Savior. I love
This transfer has already been my favorite transfer by far. I love
living in a yon-nin (4 person) apartment. My roomates are so nice and
I really love Brumley Shimai. She has a ton of energy and is always to
upbeat and positive. She is very easy going and kind. We both are
really optimistic about this transfer <3
The English ward is hilarious. You should see Sunday School....it's a
trip. I don't know why...but even though we speak English in this ward...I
still can't understand what's going on half the time. It's confusing.
Speaking of Skype. I'm so excited to talk to ya'll this week. It's
been 5 months right?? SO crazy. I can't believe I've been out for
7 months. It'll be weird, but in a few weeks I can start saying "See
ya'll later this year!" Isn't that crazy. I don't know where the time
goes. I honestly feel like a brand new missionary still. Goodness
knows my Japanese is still....pitiful, but I can atleast communicate.
I'm trying really hard to take language study more seriously so that I
can keep up the Japanese. I don't want to lose it. I figure I'm
atleast here until April 17th....that's roughly 3 transfers....so I
need to work at it.
That's about it for me. I feel like I just emailed you guys but...this
week just flew by.
I love you so much. See you Thursday!
Ai shite imasu.
