Dat Watermelon Drink!

Leaving Nagano

Great to see old friends at transfers!

Nakatsugawa and Seto District!



   It has been a dry week for dendo because everybody went out of town for vacation. Summer break in Japan is only for about a month or so. School should be getting back soon. While it has been hard to find tho, we did get to meet with an investigator we found 2 weeks back. That was way cool and now we have 2 solid investigators instead of just one. We had about 10 in Nagano. We got a lot of work to do.

    We visited a few members and less actives too. Again I must say that members of the church are so great no matter where you go. We had my favorite church meeting yesterday, shokujikai! (Food after church). Every ward or branch in japan does it once a month. It is such a good way to help people feel comfortable at church and it makes the ward feel like a real family. We sang happy birthday to all the birthday people and ate the food that was brought. Wheeler and Laumatia Choro even made a Hawaiian treat of watermelon milk (or whatever) that everyone was excited about.

    An 8 year old girl, Yuka, is my new friend in the ward, she loves the choro tachi! She puts little stickers on our name tags and shows us stuff she thinks is cool. Like her rock collection! haha she's way funny.

   We also got curtains from the honbu for our new apartment. Haven't put them up tho, we'll see how that goes.

   But I'm adjusting. It is harder to dendo (and hills are killer) but I'm happy for some reason. I think we just gotta keep the spirit with us and have faith. That is pretty tough sometimes with no huge success, but like I said before, if we fulfill our purpose and invite that is success. And that is something y'all can do too, just go out and invite.

     If you are not sure how to do that, I again highly recommend studying and applying "The Power of Everyday Missionaries" by Clayton M. Christianson. It is all about how to dendo in your everyday life, and its much easier than you think.

    Well, hope you all are doing well! Love y'all a lot.
