Well hey everybody! I hope your week went well! Mine was way fun but a little crazy! But I'm enjoying it a lot so I'm not too excited to come home... ;) But I'll be home soon enough... A mission really is fast...
OnMonday we had a fun time for P-day just messing around. We also had a great time at Mini-Volleyball, and one of the people there knows G, our investigator! So that was fun!
Tuesday we had DTM on helping investigators understand our purpose and get them to understand that we have 5 lessons so they'll listen to them all. Then we had bento lunches, and then studied, and had a great time at Eikaiwa! It was a fun, but super crazy day! :)
Wednesday we went to Tobetsu and visited A san who was doing well, so we taught him the full Lesson one as a review, and then visited a few other investigators.
Thursday we had DKK and then taught O san about Esther and having faith that God will help us when we stand up for what's right so he can possibly come to church on Sundays instead of work. He seemed to really understand and told us he does want to get baptized, so we're hoping we can get that to work out well. And since in September, Sacrament meeting is being moved to the first meeting, he'll at least be able to come to Sacrament Meeting! So we're way excited!
Friday was good as well! We taught N san about the 10 commandments and keeping the Sabbath Day Holy. When we invited him to church, he didn't say no, so we're going to follow up and make sure it's a yes. Then we went to Futomi and met with this Referral who is a super nice Grandma and she let us play this super cool Japanese instrument a little bit in her genkan, and then we talked to her a bit about hymns and how it helps us feel God's love so it was great!
Saturday was fun cause we got to do a little service! We went out to Tobetsu to G's house so we could weed her front yard which was way fun and then they fed us a bunch of food, which definitely wasn't needed. Sunday was exciting! This week, a former missionary, Sister V and her family came to visit Shinoro, so I got to talk to them for a bit since they don't all know Japanese very well. But it turns out that her dad went to Olympus High School and also knows the area where we live, so it was fun to talk to him. Because they were here, we had a Shokujikai which was super good! I tried to cut back on how much I ate though cause later that night we had a Member dinner with a Mom, and her 22 year old daughter, who have a son out on a mission right now. He's been out for about a year, but they also invited a young family in the ward to come as well, with the sister missionaries, so it was a party! But not only was it a party, it was a taco party! She made real american tacos which I haven't had for a long time. The shells were the soft flour store-bought shells as well, so it was the real deal!
But that's how the week went! It was fun! Also today we had a District Activity, but I'll tell you more about it next week! Love you tons! Talk to you soon!
