|Elder Jackson already back from Nagano! Couldn't keep this pirate away haha!|
This week was my first week as Sempai! It was way chill. We did a lot of finding. Me and Elder Beck split our investigators in half so now I'm back down to 5 investigators. Going to bring that back up soon tho!
Elder Beck's new bean is Elder Klein from Mesa, Arizona! He is way cool. And I have transfer 3 Elder Laumatia so we have been teaching and practising a lot of Japanese in our apartment. It is also more lively around here with the 2 young ones and me and Elder Beck's crazyness. Haha.
Elder Laumatia and I have been doing a lot of OYM and finding. We are both trying to improve. It has been pretty good so far, but no one new yet.
We also had Stake Conference for the Nagoya East Stake. Which is a huge stake. We met at the stake center in Meito for the Saturday night session. President Yamashita did a roll call and introduced all of the missionaries serving in the stake, which I think is about a 4th of the mission, because there were a lot of missionaries. Including 3 of my past companions and friends. It was way cool.
Sunday morning we met in a big cultural center so it felt a lot more like General Conference haha. It was way cool. The Missionaries all did a special musical number and sang our mission song "Army of Helaman" (Nagoya Mission ver.). And many awesome talks were given. It was a great spiritual meeting. It is always excited to me to see the Saints gather together in remembrance of the Savior, knowing that even though we come from different places, we are all Heavenly Father's children. And isn't that just fantastic?
This week is our Halloween party that we are putting together, hope all goes well, it should be fun. Better still, we are going to find new investigators. We will go forth in the faith just as Ammon did. And we will never forget that we are not alone as we labor in the Lord's kingdom.
Also please note that next week's P Day is moved to Tuesday due to a Holiday that gives us more dendo opportunity. So I will see you all then! I love you and pray for you each by name quite often. As always, have a great week.
HOIZA! (Hope Of Israel Zion's Army)
