May 12, 2014

So last week on P-day, we got a Baptisimal Date! He is in the Japanese Military so he's super busy and can't actually give us his number, but he's way cool! He thinks really deeply about stuff so it's cool!
Tuesday we had another great DTM by K 長老 so that was good! He talked about How to Begin Teaching from PMG and it was really good! We also had Eikaiwa, and the other two elders were in Muroan so they couldn't come, but C 長老 and I had a lot of fun with it so it turned out well!
Other than that we've been having a ton of fun talking, finding amazing people to teach (sadly one is female so we'll have to pass her to the Sisters, but she has a ton of interest so it's cool to teach her! We had a good dinner with a member where we heard about her conversion story and we've been doing some good service for members as well, so it's been a good fun week!
I loved talking to everybody yesterday and I love you all so much! I am going to be finishing my 300th day on my mission this week, and I can't believe how fast it's all going! Life is fast, but a mission is a small fraction of a life so it's even faster. It's crazy to me that a year ago I was worried about school and graduation and just wanting to get out. And now not even a year after starting, I'm out talking to people in another language telling them that I want to share a message that will change their lives forever. Crazy how fast time flies...
But I love you all, And I hope your weeks go well! You're all in my thoughts and prayers! I'm kinda out of time, so I'll add some more details with a recording next week!

Elder Bickel

From his phone call…

They hardly had any investigators when he first got there, but they have been doing a lot of "housing" (going door to door) and have found lots of great people to teach.  His investigator from his last area is being baptized on June 8th so he's really happy about that.
