Good Bye Pres. & Sis. Albrecht

Here's Jeff''s weekly update:

"The weather this week has been kind of rough actually. We had to stay inside for most of 3 days (not in a row) this last week. It was good though, because we were able to have a really good talk about how we can help investigators and be more effective when we are out finding. We've also been doing a lot of Language study, and we've both been improving a lot I feel (I still have a LONG way to go). Thursday was our last mission conference with the Albrechts, and it was a BLAST! We learned a lot of good things, but also had a lot of fun. We even got Subway sandwiches from off of one of the air bases for lunch. :D Yeah, being in the Japan Tokyo mission is the best ever hehe. It felt good after it was over to be one of the few people not going back to the mission home staying and helping clean up. Our area wasn't too far away, and we didn't have any appointments so we were able to help a lot. Friday we rode our bikes from Tama church, to Machida church and back. I don't know how far it is, but some of the hills are HUGE on the way there and on the way back. Amazingly even though it ended at 8:45 we were able to make it back home in time. (don't ask me how, because it took us almost an hour to get there in the first place). Lastly this week was a stake conference broadcast to all of Japan from SLC. That was really cool, and luckely we got an English room set up for the missionaries and a few others. It was a really cool experience, Elder Oaks, and President Uchtdorf spoke to every stake in Japan"

"Final photo with the Albrechts until the reunions."

It sounds like he's doing well and is working through any language challenges that he and Elder M are having while trying to learn each others languages and function as a working partnership. He isn't loving the humid heat, but at least they aren't dealing with the entire state burning up like we are!
"Hello Kitty World at night. :O Nearly jumped out of my skin when we turned a corner and I saw it, we were totally lost and it was VERY bright compared to the weather around it."
